Favorite real-life bedrooms from Better Homes and Gardens

 I love the straight and clean lines.  The window is fabulous!!!!
 I chose this picture because of the bedding.
 Im assuming this is in a loft.  I love the wood floors and brick walls!

This room has so many great things.  Look at the ceiling... those are beautiful.  I also like the office off to the side.

Christmas Stockings

I did the embroidry on these stockings for a co-worker.  She found the stockings at Pottery Barn and they are really a classic look.  However, we had to take them apart to embroidry them.  I love the all white.

Chloe had to wear an advertisment to Cotillion.  She loves duct tape, so guess what to wanted to wear????   I made the dress by making the tape into fabric.  1st:  I used and  old sheet and figured out how much fabric I needed for each part of the pattern.  Cut the fabric to smaller sections and cover with duct tape.  2nd:  Pin the pattern to the duct tape and cuut it out.   3rd:  Attach the sections of the dress together by using duct tape.  4th:  Hem and finish all edges with duct tape.  5th:  put your dress on your model and tape the dress together with duct tape.  I made a belt because the dress didnt have much shape to it.  I thought it added a nice touch!!

Summer Sewing....

Finally got my machine fixed.  They suggested that I have it serviced every 6 months.  I got the service plan when i bought it, why not.   Ok, so things I never finished..... 8th grade banner, teacher gifts, friend gifts, 12 months of head bands, and anything that can be sold at the beginning of school.  Now I have to get motivated.

Broken Machine

In the middle of embroidrying the 8th grade banning, my machine decides to quit.  I had to send it to the store to get fixed!!!  I felt so bad that I couldnt get it done for graduation.  The Babylock store told me it would take at least a week to get it back.  So no sewing going on here......
