Hi Cuties! I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. His name is Boo and he joined his forever home today. He is 9 weeks old and we brought him home from the shelter. Miss Mocha is not too happy, she is sulking downstairs and won
The girls LOVE their new pillows. Rylee could hardly wait to use hers - she lay down right after the picture was taken and had a nap :-) Thanks to all who commented on them earlier - as you can see, they were a big hit.
My 3 newest cousins. These are the 3 little bairns I sewed all the burp cloths for. The 2 on the outside are Kristina and Anna, twin girls born on January 6, and the middle one is their cousin Henry, born January 31. The 3 are going to be very close co
A large diaper bag I made for the newest addition to my cousin's family. Little Henry made his debut on January 31 and his mom used the bag as a duffle to carry his items to and from the hospital. The bag has many zippered and non-zippered pockets insi
Pillowcase for me. I bought a new pillow, so figured it was time to make a pillowcase for myself. This is a queen-sized case and I thought the saying was perfect to keep me going through hubby's treatments. I used a smaller version of the Emily font f
More pillowcases for the clinic. Here's the last of this batch of pillowcases destined for the cancer clinic. Hubby starts his treatments Wednesday, so I'll drop off all 25 pillowcases while we're there. I'm going to have to take a wagon to carry t
More pillowcases. These are for my great-nieces for Valentine's day. I used the Emily font from Swak Embroidery (it was on 1/2 price last week) to embroider their names so they won't fight over which case belongs to them. They fit on smaller pillows
Well, it was way past time to get my sewing area cleaned up and organized. The first pic is my stash before and the 3rd pic is my stash 1/2 way done. I need more boards, but our dollar is doing so poorly I can't order any more in, so I'm going to see
I decided it was time to get some sewing done before hubby starts his chemo next week. Our cancer clinic gives pillow cases to the new patients, so I've made another batch for them. Hubby snickered and asked if he could pick one of mine and bring it ba
Hi ladies - update on my hubby's cancer. Well.....he ended up with stage 3 colon cancer and a total weight loss of 65lbs (29.5 k)! He wasn't a big fella to start with, so now I have to put him on a super high fat/calorie diet (over 3000 calories/day).
Merry Christmas (•"Kristos Razdayetsya," which means "Christ is born." ) to all who celebrate on the 7th. Christmas was/is a bit of a downer for our family this year. We lost my father-in-law a year ago, a nephew in a serious car accident this sum
Remember putting wooden spoons through the door handles to keep the kiddies out? Well, here's the kitty I have to keep out. She discovered long ago how to open doors and hides in the cupboards all the time - just waiting to jump out at you when you ope
