Since I haven't made any of these in a while....

These are some things I made earlier this year, but never posted. The mouse went to my grandson, Bryton, and the owl, was a design that I wanted to make for my daughter's nursery, but, she didn't care for the fabric. So, we have him hanging in the sewing room. The monkey---he's here somewhere! Probably in the toybox!

Very Busy Week

We've had a very busy week at church this week with VBS! You know what I'm talking about! Kids, Kids everywhere! But, such fun!

I haven't made anything this week, due to some small minor shoulder injury and now, I can only move my arm so much, but, here is a link to a cute pencil, pen case that would make some young school person happy! If you make it share your thoughts with the author! Enjoy!

I might give this a whirl soon!

Have a great Thursday!

The Lord's Day!

Are these not just the most precious little ones? Here is our new grandbaby Everett! So cute!

This is the Lord's Day and we are now home from Worship! Just a great time of singing and praising God! We're gearing up for a week of Vacation Bible School--begins tomorrow night and runs through Friday. I'm in charge of registration and medical release forms. Yippee!!

It's a fairly easy system however, since, it's all done on the computer! My dedicated hubby built the database we use and is all ready to go for this year!

Guessing I should get busy on the Nursing Wrap today, maybe have it done by tomorrow when I'm sure we'll be over at Grace's part of the day.... then off to church in the evening.

Today's verse from Bible Gateway: "Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Luke 12: 6-7

Happy Sunday! Don't let the heat of summer drag you down!

Just be yourself

Tim, Pam, and Bryton came over tonight and brought (yum) pizza & ice cream! Wow--fattening! Anyway, we sat and watched a movie---"Coraline" It was a strangely disturbing weird movie. I wasn't impressed with it. It made me feel sad, cause here I am a sewer and I would make a doll like that, but, it was too weird. The sewer was evil, and I didn't like the way it turned out.

I don't imagine any one who sews cute toys and dolls would find this movie too fun. But, it was good that "real" came back and they all lived happily ever after.

The last sewing project I made was a crocheted dish rag and potholder and dishtowel for Pam when she went to her Camino weekend. I also made myself a crocheted dish rag.

I recently made an over the head nursing wrap for Grace, but, she thought it wasn't enough to cover everything, so, I have to research and make another type. I have the material and stuff to work on it, but, I left it in Melanie's car and she's over at Grace's tonight, helping with the baby. I came home, and we watched the movie with Pam & Tim instead.

The new little baby is here. He's a week old and just as cute as can be! I won't post his picture here, but, suffice it to say he's adorable!

I'm also getting ready to make a bassinet covering, did you see anything on the web that costs about 850.00! Yikes! That's the kind they want me to make! I'm hoping I can pull it off! We'll see. Now, if I do end up doing that project, I will post pictures!
