come check out my booth if you are in the area... the booth fee and the % the owner takes off the top are going to pay for another attempt at an IVF baby (not for me, for the owner!!!).

major slacker!

i've been a major slacker when it comes to blogging as of late. it's been shop hop in our area and i've been working overtime trying to get all my samples ready. i'm also preparing for a boutique. it's been over a year since my last one, so it's been a bigger project than i anticipated. here are a few peeks at my life in the last few weeks...

these are the november apron of the month class that i am teaching at the shop.
and this is a FEW of the many quilts that have been slaved over in the last month

promise i'll be back on the bloggin' wagon soon!

twirl skirt...

this pattern was awful! no where does it state the seam allowance and you have to search to find out how many different fabrics it calls for. it was confusing as can be, so i just folded the pattern back up and guessed how it was put together. i'm pretty happy with the results, but next time i won't have as much fluff. i think it hides too much of the pretty fabric. i think i'll try another one later this week.

i realize it has been forever since i posted last. it is a very busy season for us. between stocking up on food storage (bottling) and staring school (for both my kids) it seems i don't get enough time with my little kenmore. she has been feeling quite neglected. so this last weekend her and i took a trip to loa (yes, that is a real place) and stayed in a little barn and sewed all weekend. i don't have a finished project to show for it (maybe by this time next year...), but it got me into THE mode. so i am back on the working train and here is one of the fruits of my labor...

(yup, it's yet ANOTHER apron)

cowboy chapps

i swear, everytime i think, "um... i should make something for hunter", my mind goes blank. what in the world can you make for boys that doesn't scream, "i'm a sissy boy!!!!". ties- cool, capes- got that covered. but i tried to make a button down for hunter and it may have well said in big bold letters on the front, "SISSY". so when i finally find something to make for my little man i get a little excited!!!! and little is a very major understatement! i know this doesn't quite compare to the skirts i've made for kamryn that she can wear every day. but if i know my little man, i'm sure he'll get alot of use out of them.


(i can't remember what these metal things are called, but i thought they finished off the chapps rather well)
