Coming Soon!

I have not posted on this blog in several months, due to the arrival of a baby and lack of time for sewing and other craftiness. However, I have started sewing again, and will soon (Lord willing) be posting pictures of items I have created for my children, for friends, and to sell. Please check back again over the next few weeks to see what I am up to (and to hold me accountable to posting!).

My apologies

To my readers, though I am sure they are few and far between right now,

I apologize for the delay between posts and the general inactivity on this blog. As you know, I am expecting my third child, and life is getting rather busy as Christmas (AND baby's arrival) quickly approach. I worked really hard on the craft and bake sale in early November and since then I have not touched my sewing machine much at all. I think that will be the case for several weeks/months as we prepare for baby #3 and adjust to life as a family of 5. All of that to say I do not know what this blog will look like, or how much time I will have to post. I may even end up moving most of this information to my family blog so all that I need to update is in one place. I am not certain yet. Thank you for bearing with me, for reading my posts and looking at my crafty projects! I pray that you would have a joyous Christmas season celebrating the birth and life of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.

Until later--many blessings to you!

First gifts for baby


These cute giraffe shoes were the very first gift my little baby received, and I love them! Aren't they sweet?

The above shoes are made by Wee Pereas, a blog friend of mine who graciously sent these to me for some of my fabric. Beth regularly inspires me with her creativity. You should check out her cute creations here.

Surplus fabric for sale

With baby #3 on the way, I am coming to realize that I just don't have enough time to make everything that I want to make, and do everything I want to do. Also, I need to free up some space for baby items! That said, I have gone through my fabric stash and am looking to get rid of several pieces. Pictures are below with a brief description and price. I am not trying to make a lot of money on these; I am simply trying to earn some of what I spent! Feel free to make me an offer that I can't refuse:-)

All of the above are fat quarters--$1/each

Left: Dancefloor in Teal, 17" (just under 1/2 yard), $2;
Right: Hushabye bunnies, 3/4 yard, $4 (I have more of this fabric if someone is interested)

Above: Lime green Patsy Aiken fabric, 2 yards, $12.

Left: Green tonal paisley, 1 yard, $6;
Right: Red w/daisies, 1.25 yard, $7.

Left: Auburn Univ., 2 scraps measuring approx. 12"x36", $3;
Right: Dallas Cowboys, scrap measuring 36" x 36", $4.

Left: Red MonkeyNRound, 1/2 yard, $3 (more avail. if interested);
Right: blue dot, 1 yard, $6.

Left: Multi-color daisies, 1.25 yard, $7;
Right: Hot pink tonal floral, 1 yard, $6.

Most of these fabrics are pre-washed since I use my fabrics for nursing covers and apparel and not quilting. I would be happy to ship the fabric anywhere. Please help me clean out some space for the next baby!

Non-sewing craftiness!

I decided recently to take a break from sewing-related crafts, and work on becoming more 'well-rounded' in my crafting skills. I bought some fun buttons (sources: Etsy, Dick Blick [1 lb. buttons for $2.99!]), and spent a day or two playing with different color combinations. The results are below--I am quite pleased with how they turned out!

I linked to recently, and it was that website that had a book page canvas tutorial that I copied. One of her 'variations' on the tutorial was using sheet music, and I have a stack of old sheet music that worked perfectly! As a special inside joke to myself, the music I used is from a Nocturne that I played in my senior recital in college. I hope to hang these four canvases in my master bathroom soon.
