Published by under 2012 goals,quilting,sewing

Last month I ended up having a huge problem with the yarn I purchased for the lace shawl I was excited to knit. It didn’t come in a ball and when I tried to wind it I ended up creating a ginormous KNOT! It took the better part of three weeks to untangle it, resulting […]

trick or treat!

Published by under Family,Holiday,sewing

Another Halloween gone! I’m always sad when Halloween is over because I have so much fun making the costumes for the boys, having the house spooky all month, and enjoying fun Halloween events. Then I realize that we have a four day weekend coming up and Thanksgiving break for a week! After a month of […]

Published by under Family,photography,Sam,sewing

This year I did a lot of sewing for the boys’ costumes. And thanks to my procrastination they got to change who they wanted to be at the last minute. 😆 Meet Ash Ketchum: This costume was really fun to put together and I was thankful that Perrin picked somebody who only required a jacket […]

Still working on my quilt! I’ll have more pictures of that to share later. For now, I wanted to share with you this little guy that I created over the weekend: My brother’s birthday was this past Sunday, and instead of making a card to hold his “universal gift card” I decided to make a […]

So this week I am cutting, subcutting and piecing my stars together. Then we’re going to learn how to […]

You probably know by now that I adore the patterns by Bit Of Whimsy. They are darling and so easy to put together! This one is a bunny that I did a while ago. I love the bright fabric I used and his cute face! That tooth kills me! We’ve begun a major home re-organization […]

log cabin and a puppy

Published by under sewing

There’s a first time for everything, and this was the first time for me making a quilt! Granted, it’s a simple quilt and not very big – but I did it and I loved it! I got the pattern/directions from the current issue of Quilts & More that’s put out by Better Homes & Gardens. […]

fleece twist

Published by under sewing

Yesterday I was able to spend some time with my Mom and we took a trip down to L.A.’s fabric district. She’s been many times to get the fleece she needs for blankets she makes to sell for fundraisers at work, and I’ve just never been able to tag along. Yesterday was a great opportunity […]

getting colder!

Published by under Family,sewing

Gettin’ colder around these parts! Which really isn’t cold compared to the rest of the US. LOL!! But we’re going to be having some rain and it looks like we’ll be in the mid 60s to mid 70s for a while. I’m hoping for no more 80s! Seriously, I like the colder weather. Wearing shorts […]
