Little Lucy

I finally wore my hubs down!!!!This is my new baby Lucy

She is a two month old lab mix and has one blue eye. Does anyone know what she could she be mixed with by looking at her? She slept in her crate all night and not even one accident. To good to be true? She's a sweetie.

The Best Skirt Tutorial Ever

You're going to love this tutorial I found today at Sew A Straight Line. ANYONE can make this skirt (no, really) Its a quick sew, only took me about 30 minutes. It's completely reversible and it looks like an apron. I used some scraps just to try it out and I can't wait to get some fabric to make myself one. What's not to love?

Ruffled Purse

I finally purchased a ruffler foot for my sewing machine. Man I love that thing, although it's pretty intimidating at first. What a contraption! This purse was just an experiment to try it out, but my daughter loves it.

A Fat Quarter Kick

While at Hancock's a few weeks ago I noticed some fat quarters on sale for 99 cents a piece. My first thought was "what am I gonna do with these?" With warmer weather coming so quickly, I really don't want to get started on a quilt. I'm kind of a "winter seamstress" so I decided to buy them and think about what to do with them later. Before I got home I had a project in mind. I've seen similar bible covers before, but it's hard to find something that hugs my bible just the way I'd like it to. This is a simple project that with a little planning could be done fairly quickly and inexpensively. I did use some batting left over from previous project and this only took two fat quarters. My total was about $4.00 to make.

Here's another fat quarter project I did using a tutorial I found here. This handbag can take either one or two fat quarters. I used two because I liked the coordinating lining or you could use a plain lining fabric, whatever your preference might be.

A Dog and a Dog Quilt

So, I've been thinking alot about dogs the past couple weeks and thought I'd do a post on this fellow. What great companions they can be. They are always happy to see you and they never talk back to you. He's been the greatest dog I've ever NOT owned. He belongs to my dad and has become a great little buddy to me. I've never been the type to treat a dog like a human, I do know the difference, but this little guy here really has taken a hold on me and I love him.

Unfortunately, he won't be here much longer. He's a very sick dog and I'm gonna miss having him around the house with me.

This one's for my little buddy.

Baby Nora's Rocker

Before: Dust mite infested, nasty and it kinda smelled funky too. This rocker was tag teamed by me and my dad. We literally tore it down to its bare bones
After: We decided she needed some button tufing, which I learned how to do here. This is a great site to reference for your reupholstery how to.

I hope the Little Princess is happy with it.
