sheet shorts

I wanted to change a shorts pattern I had into something a little more fitting for me, so I needed to make a test pair first. I still had plenty of sheet material from this dress so I made them out of that. They turned out great and I kinda like the shorts in this material, I have already worn them twice. I am wishing I had not used the bright blue zipper....but I don't think anyone can see it. I also made a crafty apron for a crafty friend with scrap materials. I am finally getting into a routine that allows time for sewing and I have a list a mile long, so hopefully I can get things done and post a lot of fun things!

Bestie's Birthday

Baby T's best bud had his first birthday party yesterday. It was outside in the lovely weather and the kids played in the kiddie pools. Baby T had a great time! Birthday boy fell asleep before opening presents but this is what he will see when he opens this one.

gift for mom-mom

My sister and I made this for our mom while I was at her house. We gave it to mom-mom when we went up to her house. She loved it of course! CC even helped out with the paint, so that made it extra special. The back of the bag says MOM-MOM to give a personal touch...Happy Mothers Day!!

I am STILL unpacking our house... you really don't realize how much stuff you have until you move. I for some reason have saved the sewing room for last, prolly because it has the most stuff. I plan to get it all set up soon. I do have a lot of crafts to get on with. I was sitting and thinking that I wouldn't get to blog for awhile if I don't get it unpacked, then I went out side to enjoy the sun with Bruno and T, I noticed that Kenny Perry's divot from the 16th tee at the masters is growing. We were handed this by Terry the Fore Caddy we made friends with. We didnt expect anything to happen so it was exciting to see it growing! It's like we have our own little piece of the masters, from the spot where we started our lives as a couple.

Hide your Hooters!!

My sister and I have a lot of friends having babies these days, so while I was at her house we made a few hooter hiders. I love mine and use it as a blanket, a burp cloth, a changing pad, I even used it on the plane so that T would be able to sleep without all the distractions around her. The one I made for myself way back when I was about 8 weeks prego has boning that happened to bend in the right place. I was thinking it would be nicer to have something that could shape easier and remember a brilliant friend I have had wished hers had wire. So this time around I made them with wire, and it turned out wonderful. I made 5 I think, all reversible. I think I am going to have to take the boning out of mine and change it to wire!!


Wow, its been a while. I got back home after my trip out east a couple days ago and have been unpacking the house to make it our home. Really I have been procrastinating unpacking and reading the twilight series my fav. sister got me for mothers day. However I got the urge last night to sew a few projects, but I can't because the sewing machine is behind a few unpacked boxes so I decided to put the book down today, for awhile, and start unpacking.
Besides that, I was going to try and blog while I was away but I was having too much fun. I did a few crafts while I was there for my sister, she wanted a few t shirts with some logos on them so I got to it. Here are the photos:
