My post today is thanks to a friend and fellow blogger, Amber. She tagged me on her blog, and here are my questions.
Bunjee jump, sky dive, base jump. Not going to pay money to jump out/off of a perfectly good building or plane.
So, now to get everyone caught up with what's been going on. Since my last post I have sewn something:
This is my buddy Amber (blog: http://portraitofagirlwhoscraps.blogspot.com/). She is posing with her Donna Downey (blog: http://donnadowney.typepad.com/) canvas tote bag. I taught Amber how to make and attach the ruffles plus attach the ball trim. She has some more she wants to do to her bag, including some really cute fabric flowers she taught me how to make. My mother has a bag similar to this and has decked it out in her favorite color: pink. They will be taking their bags with them to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Charlotte, NC next month. Excited does not even begin to describe them.
Since then, I've been working on a Doll Duds Polo Shirt from Liberty Jane Clothing (site: http://www.libertyjanepatterns.com/). I'm throughly enjoying the new pattern, but haven't completed it just yet. I just need to put on the other sleeve, do the side seams, add the Velcro, and I'll be done. I'm upcycling one of my sister's Walgreen's polo shirts, and it really is turning out to be really cute. Pictures soon, I promise.
To help get me back into the swing of sewing, I am working on a sundress sew-a-long on AG Fans and am doing a sewing swap on AG Playthings. My swap participate likes blues and purples, so I'm extremely excited since I love those colors too. The blue and orange dress from PDR still hasn't been touched. I think once I make the petticoat I'll start working on it again. My "To Sew" list just keep growing and growing...
I have been scrapbooking too. Here are the three pages I did when I went to Mom's house to crop on the 4th of July:
Noah's Family Tree
Christian's Family Tree
Still waiting on some more information.
Dylan's first road trip to NC.
The picture in the top left is actually a pocket for another picture that is similar but the quality isn't as good since I didn't use the flash since they were sleeping.
Jim and I now have custody of my step-son Christian, and I love having another boy in the house. Yeah, I'm still outnumbered, but I'm used to that. Even our cat is a boy! Next month all three boys will be going to school (Christian in 3rd grade, Dylan in 2nd grade, and Noah in Kindergarten), and I'm excited for them. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my days, but I'm sure I'll find something to do to fill my days.
I will try to update my blog more often. I can't believe it's been 2 months!
Until next time....
