A few things finished this week ! 


 A polar fleece blanket for Sophie ; an apron and table runner for a secret Santa Swap . Below are pictures of each to see them better !!

This is Fancy Nancy Polar Fleece that I got for an amazing clearance price from . My granddaughter found it and started using it as a blanket when she stays here while her mom works the overnight shift . So I trimmed it up , turned under the edges and did a decorative stitch around it . She will be so proud of my finish when she comes over next time !!

This is a 10 Minute Table Runner I made for my secret Santa swap partner .

Please excuse my shoes and the clutter in the background !! This is a reversible apron ( it's the dark green
on the back like the trim and ties ) . I combined 2 tutorials and am pleased with how it turned out ! It's for my secret Santa swap partner also . I sure hope she likes these 2 items !

I am linking to .

Thanks for stopping by !! Have a blessed day !!

Finally !!! some sewing !!!

I have not been doing any sewing since the end of May . However , FINALLY !!!! , I got back at it ! 
I made some promises to some , and now , it's all piled up and needs to be done !!! YAY for pressure ! And then , I saw this post as I was cruising the internet , INSTEAD of sewing ! ( ha )

It's Amy Creative Side ONE THING , ONE WEEK CHALLENGE !!  I knew it was time to get serious . Even though I saw it late in the week , I posted !! ( thanks Amy !) 

Here is what I accomplished : 

-- 3 zipper pouches out of some prequilted fabric bought a long , long time ago !
--  Repurposed 2 pair of jeans into capris ( and had to do some adjustments in the fit !) ( Couldn't find any in my size at Kohl's big sale and I had a 30% off on top of that ; however , I did get a good deal on 2 pair of jeans for hubby for work !! )
-- AND a big pile ( 17 ) of flannel burp rags cut out and all ready to be sewn TODAY !!!! 

After the burp rags are done , I will be starting to make shorts for boys for Kristy's monthly project ; see her blogpost here !!

You can get a free download of an awesome shorts pattern from Fishticks Designs for FREE if you help out !!! 

Now , I must get OFF THE COMPUTER , take a shower AND THEN GET BUSY SEWING !!!  

THANKS for stopping by ! and PLEASE PLEASE consider making some shorts for some boys in Cambodia -- they really need them !!!  
Have a wonderful and blessed day !!
