Now that the weather has started to become Fall, if there is such a thing in my area, I started a wool applique bag that I wanted to finish last year.  Very tedious hand stitching but very worth the effort!  I love working with is so natural!

I went to Joann's Fabrics looking for glue and came home with this primitive sign.  Lo and behold, I could use a coupon as it was not on sale.  I love it!    Here are a few other photos including some things on the wall.

I changed my sewing room around.  I moved my fabric from my shabby bookcase to the other side of the room on my cubbies.  Nice to change things up as you find things you had forgotten about.  Here is what I moved.

Pretty Little Space

I say if you enjoy something so much, take a photo of it!  And so, I is just a little corner space in my home where some family collectible reside.  Also, there are some real and not so real hydrangeas.  I hope you enjoy looking at
it as much as I do.

A Few Of My Latest Creations!

Ok, now it is kind of over....if you call 90 degrees over!  We had a heat wave to beat all heat waves.  It was five days of over 105 degrees...yesterday was 110 degrees!  I am one who loves the fall and winter so much so it was hard for me.   I did manage to create a few items of which I will post pictures of.  Take note of the cute baby pillow for any new baby that will surely become a ROYAL baby in your house.

I said I would post a picture of the little dress when it was finished.  This is it...size 2...It turned out so has two covered buttons on the back and a removable flower on the front.  The flower has a pin back so it can be removed for washing.....It could also be used as a hair decoration.   Also, when I went out to water this morning my cone flowers were calling to be photographed, so here they are!

      Here I am, better late than keeps getting in the way.... but that is what a busy family life can do for you!  Anyway, now that I am here....I want to tell you....I am SO excited!.....I have decided to go back into a little shop in my town that I was in for three years.
      This weekend they are having a Mad Hatter Tea Party and I will have some of my little girls dresses for sale!    I will post a picture of the last dress I am finishing is going to be so cute....I am using several parts to patterns and this cool fabric that has rows of cotton lace, ruffles, stripes, and small pink prints.  The fabric was $20 a yard but I got it half off....even still, I will have to make the price worth my while!
      Well, gotta go and finish it!  Here is a pic of the makings...I promise not to take so long to blog again!  In fact, I will put a picture on of the completed dress....

When we moved into our current house there was a large clothesline in the side yard.  I was so excited to be able to hang clothes on it!  I have always loved hanging clothes on a clothesline, don't ask me why.
Well, my husband decided it was too unsightly and removed it pretty quickly.  I, myself, thought that there should be no problem because it was located in an area where nobody usually goes anyway.
The other day I started thinking about clotheslines and how nice it would be to be able to hang my quilts I make and take pictures of them instead of asking someone to hold them for me.
I went and purchase a clothesline that attaches to our shed but the line only needs to come out when you need, it doesn't hold a lot, but that is ok....I will use it for the aforementioned quilt photos and I will use it for our sheets and pillow cases.
Clothes smell soooooo good after being dried in the sun and is a picture of my line in action!  Today is a super windy day!

Boy, where does the time go?  I have been madly making Easter baskets for my Etsy customers but had to take time out for a little gardening.  It is so gorgous outside and we are expecting rain!  My flowers will love grapes are already shooting out leaves and I have flowers on my strawberry plants.  Summer is not long off....stop sewing and smell the roses (well, almost).

Well, that time it worked...funny how sometimes I can't get the BROWSE to come up!  And, I was able to add a picture of my darling little bugs I made!  I just love them!  Is there something wrong with me?  I am so happy to be able to blog again so now I will go create so I can share with you!
Thanks for joining in....j
Here goes again.  .....the dresser?
Okay, that was not too bad...they have changed something and made it easier...I did get a duplicate of a picture but that was my fault.  Now I will share a shabby chic dresser I have put in a local shop.  Still not up to painting with my healing shoulder.  Oops, so I just tried to upload the go. darn it!

Let's try this today....I have had a terrible time loading pictures so I am giving it a go today.  I will try and put some photos of my spring garden on my blog to share.

Hmmmmm.  Last time I posted it was September?   How time flies!  Now it is so freezing I find myself not even wanting to get into my pajamas!  Oh, come on've had those nights....when it is so cold you just can't bring yourself to take off your nice, warm clothes to put on those cold pajamas!  Well, that is the way it is in our of those two story houses where, if you turn the heat on, it is still freezing downstairs and you cannot breathe upstairs....anyway.....

I had rotator cuff surgery on my right arm and have not had the best sleep recently, not to mention the fact that I was not supposed to do ANYTHING!  Really now, taking away my sewing machine is just like taking away my air I breathe!  I have managed to somehow (after I take off the sling I am supposed to keep on) make a few things but definitely machine quilting has been, and will be for some time, a definite NO NO.

Who in their right mind could just sit around and not DO anything!  Therefore, I will share a few pictures of some of my creations...nothing big, quilty, and perfect, but at least something!

Well, now Blogger has decided no one can upload pictures til they are damn good and ready!  Til we meet again....if they ever get their act together, I will put the pictures up.   bye
