Cats crack me up. Speaking of which, this is hilarious. I want to adopt this kid.
And now my dear friends, some nice random pictures. As I was thinking of what to blog about this morning I just started snapping pictures of random things that I love. I do have some nice project photos of my tea swap gift but I can't show them to you until my swap partner gets her tea goodies. I should take this time to answer the many questions that you lovely ladies have asked and I haven't answered yet. I'm so sorry for being a slacking non-email answering punk. I love each and every comment that I get. And appreciate all of your great questions. So my silence doesn't mean that I don't care, please know that. It just means that I can be sloooow at getting things done. And time gets away from me at lightening speed.
I love these red and white ribbons that an older gentleman from church gave to me. He knows that I love sewing and thought that I'd like them. I think that they were from his wife's sewing stash. Sweet.
I adore this old iron that I picked up at a thrift store for $1.
I'm constantly needing to switch my sewing machine feet. This little tin that my friend Sabine sent me is perfect storing my most used feet.
Sabine also sent me these little treasures. I am in love with my little red polka dot needle case. That little cutie in the picture is of my husband when he was 2 years old.
Meet Freya. She was expertly knitted by the talented Lisa. I saw her in Lisa's Etsy store and had to have her. She's so adorable. And Lisa even made her a little blanket for her journey.
A thrifted crochet doll. I love her hair.
Some photos of a little whole cloth quilt on my bed. Ya, this is getting pretty random. Set me loose with a camera and I lose my mind.
I can't stop! And this isn't even that interesting.... I just love this fabric so much.
Ok, moving on, what's next..... How about a lampshade? That's pretty random. I glued some lovely beaded trim onto it yesterday. I love this trim.
An old fabric covered hanger. Wait a minute....I can answer a question here! One of you dears asked me if I made this myself and if I knew of a pattern. Unfortunately no. I found this in a thrift store. I would like to find some wooden hangers in this shape though. I think it would be a fun project.
Hey look! Here we all are, sewing away. We must all go to the same hairstylist. And never eat.
While I was taking all of these random pictures this morning I remembered that there IS something I made that I can show you. It's just a little thing. Remember my red polka dot needle case from Sabine? Well it was so cute I decided to try and make one myself. So I traced around it and made myself a little paper pattern. It turned out just the same! Little Sis wanted one so badly, she chose some fabrics and waited patiently. She loves it and put her needles in it right away.
Next, one of my birthday gifts from my friend M.T. Here's some random goodness for ya.
She made these for me! Let me tell ya, cleaning just got cuter. Love these.
Now I will leave you with some fabric inspiration. I tend to go through my fabrics and make little stacks that make me happy. Can't wait to figure out what this one will turn into.
That is AFTER I finish the thousands of other projects that are partially done. Have a wonderful week everyone. I'll be back with a nice cohesive blog post soon. When I find my mind. x
