Copy cat

The pants on the left I recently picked up at a clothing swap. They are so thin and cozy and anD I love more than anything the tie in the front.  This morning I attempted to duplicate them. The pants came out great but they were made for
My 9th grade self not my after 2 babies, hips run in the family, 37 year old self.  So I try again tomorrow. If you are a size 2 and you want them (the green pants)  give me a shout.

Wreath Making

I started making my own wreaths about 5 years ago and every year they improve. I think I have mastered the technique and thought I would shoot for making a star wreath this year to shine on the house all winter.  I Love winter so much, I am always looking for and creating a shiny beautiful twinkle somewhere. The process was a bit tricky but It looks great wrapped in the lights.  It is not big enough so I just ordered a 30″, hoping it will be visible from the road!

 

More often…… Or not

I blog a post with total confidence i will do it again tomorrow But…  Here i am looking at this last blog post and my daughter has nearly doubled in size.  Today i write tomorrow i may not but lets focus on right here right now.  

On a completely unrelated note.  I grabbed this book at the library the other day completely on a quick thought that it may be interesting. I want to start a shop i am not a business minded person right now so i guess i start here with this book. It is a quick quick read.  Maybe hence the title.    It is old and it talks about the 911 system just being introduced.  Old books rock!!

 

There is no place like….studio

Image..i came home today from a shorter visit to NH that was just, let’s say so INSPIRING spiritually. I did bring a project of making a continuous bias strip.  i haven’t  tried it in awhile and the piece of fabric is huge so I hope I can line it all up and cut away i guess if worst comes to worst i cut strips and sew them together  BOO!   but i walked into the studio and it smelled so good.  i don’t even know what but I can’t wait to get in there, expecially with my little BF!  someday she will be my partner in sewing.  if she wants too..until then…so many projects sew little time…

Vintage Sheet Ruffle Quilt

Vintage Sheet Ruffle Quilt

I was inspired by a tutorial posted by Melissa Haworth. I purchased the tutorial and spent the past two years finding just the right sheets. I followed the instruction on how to layer the strips and ruffles and the rest I had to take side roads. I used a quilt batting instead of a flannel sheet. I love the weight it gave it. I also measured my strips and cut them out the width of the quilt instead of making super long ones. It is so beautiful in my daughter’s room. I love it. Thank you Melissa.
