What I've Been Up To

Well I know you've all been waiting on pins and needles, just aching to know what I've been up to.
Wanna know what came in the mail the other day that was so gorgeous and so exciting? Wanna know all about the serger foot that I was going crazy waiting for? Well here it is!
I call it Candy Corn, isn't it gorgeous? I don't think the picture totally captures the awesome, if only Emily lived closer :P

I received inspiration the other day in Sacrament Meeting. I'm not entirely sure why it popped into my head just then but it did so I was going to make one for Lorelai and one for Bekah. But I just couldn't reign in the joy. I'm making at least 9 for the craft show we are doing on the 3rd.

I will also be making some shirts to go with these to sell at the fair. Black with candy corn painted on them. Cute? Brett and I sure think so.

I got these bows for Lorelai to wear. Gorgeous yes?
Well I'm not sure if I'll tie them into the fair, I think I may make some matching flowers to go with them to the fair.
And there you have it. That's what I have been plotting and scheming about. Love it.

Oh and I also got a pig tail set of these for Lorelai to wear to her uncles football games. Best dressed baby!

I'm thinking 2:30 AM

Thats my prediction as to when I'll go to bed. I am riding a surging high right now and I am so excited right now!!
I'm taking a break at the moment because I need to switch to black fabric and I'm tired of rethreading my surger but what I'm making is coming along so beautifully I can't stand to stop for too long. In fact I can feel it...calling me... right now!! Ah!!

Isn't It About Time?

So here we go. Total update mode.
My house is gorgeous. We have spent weeks and weeks and weeks on it and finally I can devote my time to sewing rather than working on the house.
So in Sewing news I threw down and started sewing yesterday. I had many interuptions but managed to finish 2 complete bags and here they are:

These bags are similar to the ones I have shown on this site before but twisted up a bit. Good times.

And here are two scripture cases ready to be handed over and paid for. Which I really need because can you believe it? I'm already out of interfacing! Good grief. Super exciting, lots more work to do!

Back to the good ol' sewing machine so I can keep crankin' them out!
