If at first you don't succeed, Look at the Directions

In my enthusiasm to get started on this dress
I  didn't even look at follow directions.


So, I will start over.
But this little applique sure turned out cute.

Like Minds


We fix sewing machines and I have enjoyed the notes on machines this week.
They have said things like, 
Please get this back to me as fast a possible,
I have Christmas projects to work on.

We have meet some talented people this week.
Check out this etsy shop


I made this because I wanted to know how to do this boarder.
I am happy to say it was a piece of cake.



I found out my grand-kids will be here the week after Christmas.
I think I will make these dresses for a little dress up/play time.


There is a boat load of applique on them.
I have decided it will be like making a wearable quilt.
I am happy sad to say, I will have to buy fabric.
I mean, who doesn't want to visit a fabric store?

We had a snowday yesterday!!!
We really didn't have that much snow,
but we did have a lot of icy roads.


this one still needs some work.

At my house, snowdays are Sewdays.



I was happy to get this library bag done.
I have enough fabric to make all my kids a library bag, 
but I think I will wait for them to have a family first.



Last week, I made pillowcases to go with quilts.


With this, I am done with Christmas sewing.

Zoo Quilts and Rice Bags



I finished the zoo quilts.
I hate to apologize for the glare of the sun,
so I won't.


I love both of these, but I do have a up-side-down giraffe here.



I was asked to make rice bags to go in Christmas bags for elderly women in our church.
I could not help myself,
I know they will love these 30's reproductions.
