Not Much

Not much happening around here lately. I have been sewing. I finished a wedding that I was sewing for. I was thankful to have that off my mind. I am looking for some motivation to paint and redecorate a spare bedroom. So far, I have not found the motivation.Wish you could just order some motivation from somewhere!! I have white paint for the walls. I also have the sweet light blue and white stripe wall paper for the room. I want to create a cottage look for the room. I will probably sew curtains, bedding, and pillows for the two twin beds that are in the room. I dearly love Tanya Whelan's beautiful fabrics and will no double use some of her fabrics from the Darla line.

I love the new aprons that are so fashionable now!! I recently made a new apron using marie-madeline studio's darling Chic Sister Pattern. I can't tell you how darling it is. The Long Ladies at marie-madeline created the pattern. They offer wonderful instructions that even newbies could understand!! I made my first apron usine their pattern in under 90 minutes!! That was from the start of cutting out the pattern to clipping the last thread when I was finished!!

marie-madeline studio is offering a giveaway!! They are giving a way a pattern and the fabric to create your own chic apron. Check out their website here.

Sharing our joy.....

I have some wonderful news to share! My daughter, who is my "baby" and only girl is expecting a baby girl in December!! We are so excited and thankful for this miracle. She and her husband had lost two pregnacies in the last four years. We weren't sure we would ever enjoy the miracle of seeing her have a bundle of joy. Thank the Lord he has blessed her and things are looking real well. She is due the middle of December. Last night she was blessed with a lovely shower in her honor. I thought I would share a few pictures from the shower.

Pretty Pink Bubbles

Here is my latest creation that I have been busy working on. This delightful purse was created with a solid black canvas fabric and then accented with a colorful printed lining. I included a beautiful vintage button that highlights the sweet pink colors. I created this purse for a door prize at a baby shower!

If anyone is interested, I can create another one like this for you. As with all of my creations, they are handcrafted individually by me, one at a time. I finish my purses with a scotch guard coating to help keep your purse clean.

This purse sells for $34.95 and includes free shipping. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in this purse or a custom creation!
