Saturday, too many projects too little time!

Well, it is Saturday again, and my list is too long. I wanted to do, I thought four things this weekend. Finish George’s Shirt Take down all the snowman and make curtains for my kitchen. (This just means embroider napkins that I hang over the curtain rod. Organize my fabric, again. Start a nightgown for […]

A Shirt for George

I have started a shirt for George. I had this fabric in my stash and when I used some of it on Michael’s I-Pad cover, I thought it would be a nice fabric for George. I am however unhappy with the shirt pattern. It doesn’t have all the detail, I want. I worked on it […]

I have been sewing for years. I was interested in doing a little bit of embroidery but more sewing. I want to step […]

Sarah’s Kindle Cover

I decided to make a cover for Sarah’s Kindle for her birthday next week. It is hard to believe that she will be 12 years old! Where does the time go? I have signed up for monthly projects from Anita Goodesign and I happen to get one for E-Reader Covers. Having finished Sophie’s Tooth Fairy […]
