Making more Frozen Costumes... What a Grandmaw will do for those Sweet Grandchildren

Last year, during School Spirit Week, my oldest
granddaughter, [Emily],ask me to make her the Elsa
costume from the movie, Frozen.. Do you remember
me fussing, and complaining about the glitter??

This year,  her little sister [Callie]went into high school [9 th grade]. Spirit week is upon us again.. and this year was another
Disney Day. so............... I got that sweet little call that ask
me to make her an  Ana from Frozen costume.  Well..
of course , I said Yes!!!  Who could resist??? Emily will be
 Elsa the sister again, and Callie  will be  Anna. I have the
dress almost completed. [Lots of embroidery work...time..time
consuming.. which I dont  have ,ha].  I need to get the cape and capelet cut out..

Also, making some  Biblical Costumes  for Different churches and schools.. This is such a blessing for me.

The work on our house has slowed as I sew costumes.. Nice
to sit at the sewing machine ..
Have a blessed day. and Happy sewing to each of you.

Nothing Says Fall Better than Apple Pie and Crafting a Fall Wreath

My New Fall Wreath
note: click on photos for a better view.

Gathering the supplies to re-do an old wreath
into a fall  wreath.. Plus-- spray painting
a styroform  pumpkin to decorate.[Found the
pumpkin at a junk store for 50 cents]

After painting my 50 cents find.. I took some
orange and black ric rack trim, and some small
pumpkin ribbon to  put on it.

Nothing says Fall like Apple pie.. and when my sweet
friend emailed me , that she was going to the apple farm..
She was going to make apple butter.... well... that REALLY
made me think about apples.ha

[ps --- Kenny really likes my friend, since this
is his favorite pie.. Cathe.. he says, Thank you!!!]

I have sewed my pumpkin pillow  .. And have added it
to my fall decor. Will post about it soon.

Amy Grace-  [Almost 11 yrs old]

Ashlee Gail [almost 11 yrs old]

Twin Granddaughters.. I think I am  getting a
thumbs up!!!  Aren't  They Sweet girls?

school [this is their school uniform colors]
I also made them  each a  black/white hounds  tooth
skirt.. I bought ready made t-shirts to go
with them.. It was so nice to get in my sewing
room. Hopefully, we will get moved and
settled soon, and I will be able to sew more.

Curtain for  Bathroom [at the old house we
are fixing up]
It is  a Berry Red /White stripe, with  a red/white
floral topper..

NOTE: Click on photos  to enlarge.

Used the left over fabric to make a matching
Commode topper.

 I have a craft project in progress.. [I saw a similar
idea on someone's blog. Can't find it.. Sorry I
can't give credit to her blog. ].. These are Christmas
Popcorn tins. I am making  them to  place
on a  big  shelf [that will go from ceiling to floor
and house baskets and tins to hold sewing supplies]. I
will not have a sewing room, when we move..[sad]
So, I am having to figure out what to do with my
massive stash.ha
 I spray painted these  tins [like 20 times.. whew.. have
you ever tried to cover a Christmas tin with white
paint??   not fun.ha] .. I will be  decorating them
with stencils/ more paint/ maybe chalk board paint?
 Will finish them soon.. and  post.

Stencils and  Paint
Just waiting on me....

Hope you all are having a fun summer, and
lots of sewing fun..  I am sorry , I have not
posted in such a long time.. We are  working
many hours a day on this old house, and
getting our house ready to sell.  So time,
is really hard to find. Sorry.

Sewing Projects in Process

Adding lace pocket and  lace around hem line, of
some cute stripe RTW  t-shirts for Emily & Callie.
 I saw these shirts in the mall, they were expensive.
So, I found some cute tees, bought some lace
at Hancock's [with my 40% off coupon].
Simple summer top for me.. Will be doing view A.
I have had this strawberry fabric in my stash for awhile.
Not sure where I got it? It is a cotton with a small
amount of  stretch. This will be a loose fitting
top. Nice and cool for summer.

While I was doing the lace tees for the girls, I decided
to make myself one.. [Didn't have enough lace to
go around the hem line, so  I just got a pocket..]

Happy Sewing, and hope you all have a blessed week.
