Where is SUMMER?!?

It's been so interesting here on the Cenrtal Coast for our past couple of summers! After last year, we'd hoped to get some warmer weather heading our direction this year. And yes, it was hot enough to enjoy the (solar heated!) swimming pool for a day or two, but that's it! We've been hearing from our family in Texas that it's been the complete opposite for them this season.... with people actually having to HIRE someone to dump ice in the pools. Wow! I guess we'll be thankful for the mild weather we've got! Happy rest of summer!

Projects, Projects, Projects!!!

The beginning of this season has been so much fun! We've been working on some fun summer projects. Most recently, we quickly took an average hat, and turned it into something a little more unique and festive! Here are some pictures....
A $5 hat from Wal Mart

A pin we found at a garage sale

A scrap of fabric we turned into a flower

... and voila! A fun summer hat!

Quilting Class

We sure had fun at our latest quilting class.
Rana (our teacher) said it takes something like 16 hours to get a design down pat in your brain.

Practice practice practice.

Free motion quilting takes practice.

Yeah Spring!!!

I just love Spring!
Every thing is fresh and new.
The birds are singing and the fields are green and the flowers blooming.
I love to do so many things....
My garden is calling and I just have a bit of time for sewing.

This is a tote that I made. It is an Amy Butler pattern called field tote. I got to enjoy sew many features on my sewing machine. The piping foot was tremendous! I also used my edge stitch foot for the perfect even top stitch. Having the right tools helps sew much!

I had left over fabric so I made me one of my most handy items... a shower wrap.
We can not just leave it plain so I used all the scraps I had left from the bag and put them on my wrap.
This is going to be a class next quarter because its fun, quick and easy, Yipee!

More Creating Fun!

First I took a plain scarf...
Then I tore strips of fabric...

sewed them into flowers...
I got sidetracked and made this little muslin flower, anyways...

Then sew them on where you like them!
Come and join our embellishment class and do this with us!

This is my best buddy Raley she is never far from my side. She is my sewing partner.

Greetings!!! Better Yet Greeting Cards!!!

Ok so am I the only one who could open a scrapbooking shop of their own. I have so many tidbits that I have collected over the years and I still have 26 years worth of pictures to scrapbook.
This bugged me so last weekend I decided to make my own greeting cards with the sewing machine, fabrics(plenty of that sitting in my shelves) and the scrapbooking supplies that I have on hand. Oh my! Did I open a new can of worms. I loved every creative moment! It was so great creating a card specifically for a special someone.
I even tried some freemotion work on some of them.
This will be a class that we offer soon. Watch for it!
