The sewing bug has bit me...

OK. Here's the "jeans." Very wrinkly jeans as I have been wearing them for days--Yes, days. I love them, but I think they are a size too big. I used Simplicity 4237. I will try some in linen a size smaller. Love 'em though. I really do.
And here's my gift to the mom-to-be. A blanket made of decorator cotton and chenille, a little pillow and a hand-me-down rocker with recovered cushions. My nephew and his wife are expecting a little girl in July and her room was freshly painted "Fabulous Grape." I made the blanket and pillow and covered the cushions. I rocked my three babies in it. Hope they like it.

Seeing RED?

Mother's Day was wonderful. The gifts from their hearts, got MY heart all a flutter! My son made a special breakfast. My eldest daughter made me a board game! My youngest a flower pot of "chores" which includes "Turn off the TV". My hubby, an ipod, a RED one to go with my new shoes! I love 'em!

Give It Another Go

Yeah. It takes me a while to get back to this. I have been busy. I have made a few things. I could be much more productive, especially with more hours of sunlight now! Recognize the fabric for the purse? I've got more of these chairs cut out and waiting for me! I've also got a pair of denim trousers in the works and a baby blanket on he way for a dear friend. I hope to be updating more regularly soon.
Maybe I haven't found my "voice". I feel a little hesitant to put myself out there, too. I have in the past and then felt funny about it. Here's to another go at it.
