Well I am going through withdraws. Last week was so busy that I didn't have time to sew. Sure I got about an hour in last week, but really that is the same as not sewing at all right. This week is not looking any better.

Brother and Jojo are in swim lessons this week again and I need to pack the family for a week and a half trip to the parents house. I might be able to get some in everyday if I try really hard.

I think I can!
I think I can!
I think I can!

I wanted to get Tate's and Ladybug's cloths done before we go. Some shorts and vest combo for Tate and a skirt shirt combo for Ladybug....ohh well I might just have to wait until I get back from Reno!!!

Cleaning my fabrics

Well the other day I cleand up by fabric. Well to be honest they were starting to take over the office. So, I seperated and organized and man I forgot about some of my fabrics. Well, I had left over 2.5 inch strips from the Old Red Barn Co. quilt along so I made this skirt. I am impressed with myself because I made it without a pattern.

I was fun to look at all the fabric that I had. The only problem is it gave me so many ideas of what to use those fabric's for that now my list of would-like-to-do's is even bigger.

Oh well, I guess that is the nature of the beast.

Making Lemonade!!

Well in the process of making a dress for my daughter I totally messed up...I mean totally. I tried to fix it....but it was a gonner...really sad because it would have been a really cute dress.

So when life hands you lemon you................................make lemonade!!

So I took the skirt part of the dress and make my daughter an apron!! I turned out pretty cute. I feel better not wasting ALL my work and fabric. It was a super cute fabric so I didn't want to throw it all away.

I hope that she likes it.....the kiddos are coming back today!!!

Finished Finished

Well, I finished my very first quilt...I am very exctied that it is done. I took on a huge one as my first one. It is 6 feet by 7 feet.....Why do I never make it easy on myself.

My husband is as excited as he can be (which isn't much), but I am happy that it is done for him and now he has his very own 'blanket.' I will try hard not to let the kids play with it!!!

This is my one week of vacation a year. The three other kids (brother, jojo, and ladybug) are with my mom-in-law for the week. It has been quiet and fun and I miss them!!!
