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......
