I am realizing that I can only do one hobby at a time. I have been sewing which means I haven’t blogged, read (there are 184 posts in my Google Reader), or scrapbooked ANY. I don’t think I used to be this way. I have to admit that my ability to multitask isn’t as sharp as it used to be. I mean it’s not like I am on death’s door or something, it’s just that I have to concentrate a little bit more.
So, I have been inspired by Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to show you what I saw and then what I made. I have decided that Pinterest is just a time sucking covet trap unless one uses it as a tool, so I’m trying to be a better steward. That said.. .
My friend, Michelle, came up with the idea of the “sewing group” making these shirts. They are so adorable and I have to admit this is the earliest I have had a tshirt prepared for a holiday. The Pinterest link:
Michelle gave me the pattern for a pair of pants she was going to make her little girl and I thought I would take that on as well. So. . . (or sew. . .)
and KB has this cute tulle skirt so I had to try and this is what I came up with:
I just realized I don’t have a photo of those, but they were quick and easy to make and now the girls have matching shirts. Bubba’s going to get a monster instead. You’ll see photos eventually, I am sure.
Then there’s the gift I made today and I’m excited. I can’t remember how long ago it was that someone (my mom or another friend) gave me an clipping from Southern Living which showed a half apron made out of a dish towel and ruffles. Oooh, after a quick Google search it seems it was July 2010 that it was given to me and here’s the photo:
Recently I was on Pinterest and came across a tutorial that spelled it all out for me and I decided to make one for my sister-in-law – she loves to cook. Pinterest link:
Brooke’s apron (which I think will look better with real hips behind it – even small hips like Brooke’s – and maybe I’ll hem the towel up a few inches):
So, there we go. Now I have to move on to the next thing. Honey is headed to Vegas next week for a three day conference and the day after he returns I am headed south to see my BROTHER!!! and then spend the weekend in Atlanta with my sister and Mom. Oh, sorry – SISTER AND MOM!!!!!
I’ll check in again real soon. There are soccer photos I must share and Bubba’s first MLB game. Till then,
“Good night, sleep tight and may your dreams come true.
Here’s a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true.
And now till we meet again, adios, au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen. Good Night!”
