|Callie is visiting ..We made her a fall|
chevron pocket tee.. SO she modeled
it in front of the flowers.
|Fall is in the air.. So cool and pretty..|
Callie is modeling her shirt in front of the
pumpkin . She is so sweet!!
|Fall is here. Leaves are falling. The air is cool an crisp!|
I looked at my door, and thought, I need some fall
decor.. Nothing says fall, like pumpkins!!
[and the blue wreath on the door , did not say fall]
I had no pumpkin, and honestly, I didn't want
to cut up that messy thing just for this.
I looked around ,and found one of the $1 plastic
pumpkins from the Dollar tree. It has a smiley face.
Oh well. It will be facing the wall, No one will
know but me [and now you!]
I found some ribbons and hot glued them
around the pumpkin. Added some ribbon on
the handle. Some bows on the side.
Added a few artificial flowers and now
I have a nice pumpkin to greet my visitors!!
| My pumpkin sits atop an old candy barrel|
that I got at an old country store years ago
and painted country red.
|I think my pumpkin made my blue wreath|
look kinda fallish too.
|Goodie Birthday Bag|
Kenny teaches Sunday School at our local Nursing Home.
One of the very sweet ladies turned 100 on the 22nd
of August.. She is amazing.. She gets around
really well.. And kept her own house, until she was 98.
Every Sunday, she would tell me, " I will be
100 years old!! She is very proud for this . I knew I
had to do something for her.
I decided to sew her up a birthday goodie bag. I embroidered
a bible scripture, Her name, and Happy 100th Birthday.
I filled it with kleenex, lotions, lip gloss, and warm
She was very excited when I give it to her.. and the other
elderly ladies began to tell me , when their birthdays were.
I think I will be making more goodie bags.ha
Such an enjoyable sew. And I used 1/2 yd fabric
from my stash.
|A friend , of a friend of mine, commissioned me to|
sew her 4 yr old daughter some Halloween/fall
dresses and make pocket t-shirts.. What fun!
This is a brown pillowcase dress with a turkey
machine appliqued on it. A black/white polka dot
fabric with The word Boo embroidered with
pumpkins. and 2 t-shirts with pockets.
|I also made her a sweet t-shirt dress. I added|
buttons around the neckline for a fun effect.
I used up 4 yds of fabric from my stash.. Which will
apply to my Stash Busting .
|Ginger skirt- Used 2 yds Fabric from Stash|
The Violet Colette blouse was made earlier.
This was a quick sew.. I really needed to sew something.
I have really missed it.
Now, let me explain ,why I haven't blogged or sewed!!!
We have decided to sale our house, when or if it sales,
move into Kenny's deer camp, until we can build
a house out there!!!
Now, this has led to some major work.. We had our
ceramic floors in the kitchen and hall , ripped out and wood
laminated floors installed.. [what a mess they made!!!'} . We put
in new french doors, 2 new doors, utility rooms on the carport.
Trying to spruce the place up.
I also painted our bedroom, while in the midst of it,
I began to have really rough pain.. I thought
I might be delivering my third child [oh what a nightmare
at this age,ha]. Kidney stone./ went to the doctor, it
was too big to pass, so they had to go in and get it.
Now, I have a stint in.. I hope to get it out real soon.
The doctor said, 2-3 weeks???
Hopefully, things will get better real soon. And I will be
able to return to my blogging /sewing self..
