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......

I haven't done any sewing in a while.  I am going to start the eight grade banner for our graduates this year.  They were my very first class when I started at St Vincent.  It will be sad to see them go.  I will post pictures when I am finished.

Business Cards

I just ordered my first business cards.  I am so excited.  I used  It is a great resourse.  It was even fun to put everything together.  I could upload my own pictures or choose from many many of their pictures.  It was very easy to use.   Check it out.

Finished birthday bags

Yesterday was Chloe's birthday party.  It went great!!  The bags that I made for the girls were a hit.  I think more of a hit with the moms than the girls.  I talked with a couple of the moms about doing som work for them and with them.  I need to think about how to get my ideas out there.  First I need business cards.  Use my blog as advertisment.  Pricing??????  Thats my big problem, I have no clue.YOU MUST HAVE A PLAN.  I hear my father in the back of my head..........
