I've know I've rambled on about my birthday for some time, but I get so many wonderful crafty presents that I would never buy myself.  It's just so much fun to share.  My good friend got me this sewing book.  I'm so excited about it.  It's a beginners guide which is exactly what I need.  It even includes 10 patterns.  It's fool proof for folks like me.    My...

Curse of the Butter Tart

I always look forward to presents from my cousin.  He's really good at finding local crafts for me.  This package was no different.  This LOST bracelet had me laughing!  It can apply to so many things.  I'm perpetually lost; my sense of direction has never been great.  It could mean I'm mentally lost; no comments from the peanut gallery.  Or it could be a groovy bracelet to wear...

It's been a crazy couple of weeks filled with family.  I gave myself a blog break since I've been so busy.  It's amazing how much I missed blogging.  It feels good to get back to it. I made this breakfast casserole to feed a large group of family staying with me. My sister-in-law has made this before and I knew it was the ideal solution for me because all the cooking is done beforehand.  So the...

Mother’s Day

For Mother’s Day, I made these cards for my mother and mother-in-law.  I traced the flowers onto card stock and then embroidered the flowers.   It’s a bit tricky embroidering paper which can tear easily.  Since I couldn’t see from the back side where my needle should go, I made those holes with my needle first which created a guide for my needle. PackRat Power: The purple card stock is leftover...

At last!  More Short Fuses pendants to show.  I made these awhile ago, but am now just getting to show them.  I’m so in love with the butterflies.  I keep telling myself I should move on to different things, but I seem to always come back to them.  I do like the new flowers I’m doing.  Those are a lot of...

Pillowcase


Posted on May 1, 2008

I successfully finished my pillowcase in last week’s sewing class.  I’m really happy with it and it wasn’t too hard.  My biggest problem seems to be controlling the speed of my machine.  If I had my way, it would plug along at a very slow pace.  Since my foot can’t seem to figure out how that works, I get a lot of fast, slow and then fast again.  I know this will get better with...
