I havent posted in forever...  I have had several things to post but havent put the pictures from the camera to the computer.  (a Jeff job).  I know I need to learn.   Anywho...  I have gotten lucky with winning some great things on some blogs I follow.   I won some fabulous fabric from House on Hill Road.   She was so good to put colors and patterns together that I fell in love with.   My second win was from Bright, Bold, and Beautiful.  I won $100 to CSN stores.  I ordered things from there yesterday.  I ordered 3 things for school and a great iron candle holder.   I will post pictures ASAP.     I must go sew.  I have a bunch of people order embroidry, headbands, and other things.

Goodbye to my Pappy....

This morning my last grandparent died.  Pappy, as my children called him, was a great man.  He was a man of the Lord.  He always put God first in his life.  He wasnt always a christian.  One of my favorite story told about him was when my father left for Vietnam.  Pappy prayed to God and promised him that if he brought my father back alive he would follow God the rest of his life.  He kept that promise.  He had nothing and always gave everything.  Pappy we will miss you.  May you rest iin the Lord.   He picture is on my post from Father's Day.

trouble with the sewing machine.....

I was in the middle of a project (towel wrap) and the bobbin goes all wacky.  Its now out of sync and will have to be fixed by a professional.    Not real happy about that.

Loving the beach.  Not too much oil evidence and very little tar balls.  After Obama visited the cleaning crews were out in great numbers.  The house we are staying in is awesome!  I love my in-laws.  Thanks for the great vacation!!!

GREAT find.....

I found an awesome fabric store while visiting a friend.  Its called "The Stichin Post"  in Little Rock.  All the fabrics that I have learned about through the great blogs, I had the chance to see first hand.  Michael Miller, Heather Bailey, and Anne Marie Horner.  I couldn't decided what to purchase.  They were all great.  I did buy a muted teal small check and a very small print muted teal, light and dark brown.  I wanted to make something for Braden.  I will post pictures when I return home.

Happy Mother's Day

Why cant I say "NO!"

I have volunteered to make an eight grade graduation banner.  I have spent 5 hours today trying to create the banner.  I am embroidrying a scripture at the bottom.   Each student has picked a fabric and cut out their hand.  I will applique those on and then embroidry each students name by their hand.  I embroidried the first line of the scripture and it took about four hours.  I have two lines to go.   I am very frustrated!!! 

On a different note, I found some pictures of things I might consider for the fall boutique.

crazy ideas

My mom and I went to a craft boutique a couple of weeks ago.  I wanted to see what was the popular thing going.  It seemed to be the "pillowcase dress".  I inquired into their fall show and was told that I could sign up.  I was trying to figure out what kind of things I could make.  One thing I would like to do is fabric covered buttons (with embroidry letters)  both pins and loop backs.   Im not sure what else I would want to put into a collection that would be different and still make money......

Awesome beds...

I check all my favorite blogs everyday, but lately havent had anything to share on mine.  I have been quite busy at school and with Chloe and softball.  I havent sewn for several weeks.  I have several things that need to be finished.... all the pillowcase dresses going to Haiti,  gifts for friends, Ok I lied.. I sewed my first pair of pants last Saturday for an event I was attending but didnt wear.  Well happy sewing to everyone.
