Photo Finish Friday

Went to the doctor on Wednesday and was given a clean bill of health. I can resume normal activities! YAY! Take that brain tumor!

Seriously? This model looks like she has the flu and they dragged her out of bed for the photo shoot. Does not inspire me to buy the clothes at all. Sheesh. Oh, and I want to feed her too, she's way too thin.

Where I need to be

This is awesome. Love his work.

Love this. Scroll through.


What are you up to this weekend? I have some reading and sewing on my to do list. Saturday night my friends are giving me a belated birthday celebration and on Sunday I get to see my Bagettes that I haven't seen in a long time! Miss them! Teresa

Workday Wednesday

This past week I have been knocking out some projects. Another zipper pouch for one of Little Girl's friends. This was a birthday gift, she tucked some fun beauty care products inside…
My scrap bin was OVERFLOWING with stuffing so I made a few pet beds…
Pretty, don't you think?
The serger got a workout on a pile of handles…
And, a pile of bags too…
What are you up to this week? Getting some project done? Are you snowed in? We were on Sunday but enjoying clear roads now. We are supposed to get more white stuff tomorrow. Teresa

Short Upcycle

Little Man had a pair of Old Navy shorts that he really liked and wore a lot. So much so that the back end got a hole in them. I give away all of my kids' clothes that are too small. Of course, I can't do that with holey clothes. Instead they become pet bed stuffing…
But, there were 2 pockets on these shorts that were in perfect shape. The velcro still worked well and it seemed a shame to get rid of them. I cut them off the shorts and set them aside until I figured out what to do with them.
 After making all the pouches for Little Girl's friends, lightening struck. I could make a cool pouch out of the pockets!
 I used some camo fabric for the inside…
When I showed it to Little Man, he thought it needed a strap, easy enough…
He has lots of plans for this little pouch, I've been hearing all about them! Teresa

Photo Finish Friday

Little Girl and I went on a snowy walk…
This guy is pretty cool!

In honor of President's Day. So cute.

Growing up in Minnesota, I saw lots of these.

What to do with paint chips

Very cool. I love bees.


To make!

What are your plans this weekend? We have many things going on but I hope to spend some time with my kids and my sewing machine, you? Teresa

Workday Wednesday

This past week I got a few things from my TO DO list complete. Another tennis bag…
And, so excited about the fake leather bottom. I've been wanting to experiment with this for a while. I'm super pleased with how it turned out. Much easier than I expected!
 This is the inside, pretty Amy Butler fabrics…
I found this tutorial on Pinterest I have been wanting to try. Very easy. These are for Little Girl's friends for Valentines Day.
 The cute insides…
 And of course some bag sewing. YAY! I feel like I'm BACK!
I am truly feeling great. I feel about 95% percent. I still get tired, but that is to be expected. Monday will be the 6 weeks from surgery mark and I see the Doctor on Wednesday. Happy happy! Teresa
