What Have You Been Up To?

Posted on June 27th, by Amy in ramblings, sewing. 5 comments

Really I would like to know! =) I keep thinking about projects I would like to start but have gotten little accomplished – hmmm. I’m working on it.I did just empty our van of trash and laundry! It is amazing how much accumulates in a short time. It hasn’t been around the house much for me to get my hands on it, so it had accumulated!I made my older two girls each a nightgown yesterday. I had been to our one and only thrift shop in town last week and found some sheets – cool and comfy nighties. Emmalie choose the dainty flowers and Ella the white with eyelet at the hem. They turned out – but not my best work. I have another to make for Sophia – practice will … Read More »

I found this contest in one of my magazines, and I was wondering if anyone would like to make a bag with me. There’s some nice prizes – including fabric, and the pattern is free. Check it out and let me know what you think. Either leave a comment or email me at amy1399(at)gmail(dot)com.

I have about 50 other things I need to be doing right now – see you later!Amy

I can’t believe it has been a week since I told you about my bag experiment! It has been a bit busy around here with warm weather, (we hit 73!!!) being outside with the kiddos. Love the sunshine! Today we had our first official Thunder Storm – a good 25 minutes of grumblings. When we first moved here nearly 6 years ago – I was so frightened by these storms. I am happy to say that I was cheering for the rumble today – it is so amazing to think of how these storms are orchestrated. Wow!

On to my bag! I have determined that this will stay with me and not go in the etsy shop as my iron left a stain – you probably won’t be able to see it but I … Read More »


Yesterday – As Good As It Gets

Posted on April 5th, by Amy in My kids, sewing, work in progress. 4 comments

For this stay at home mom – yesterday was a great day! My mother-in-law offered to take my 4 and 21/2 year old girls for the day. I thought about taking a nap while Owen was napping, then I thought about cleaning the house more than the usual day to day. But in the end I decided to sew! Having a day to myself – with Owen – is a nice change of pace. I altered and cut out a pattern for Ella’s dress that was in the same pattern as her purse. It is Simplicity 2993. I was able to sew the bodice before it was time to go for a bike ride and pick her up at school. Also lots of fun – with Owen in a little trailer!

After dinner … Read More »
