And I am not complaining. The last month has been slow for my sewing business. Of course I went to Kentucky the first of the month and it took me a little recoup time before I got back into the groove,
Then last week I worked on a secret project all week and had my grandkids here.
I haven't talked a lot about this, but being in the home construction business has put an economic strain on our lives. Considering the turn our life has taken, I am so thankful I have a skill that I can use to help out a little, and it is something I love to do.... Sewing!!
First though is the project I showed you a couple of months ago that I was going to make for my grandson's birthday. Well, since his birthday is July 12th, I have decided this is going to be his Christmas present. (Wise decision)
The picture and pattern came from Amber
Go over and visit her blog.(Click on her name) She does a lot of cute quilts and she has her own pattern company called Gigi's Thimble.
I finally finished cuting out the triangles, (a lot of triangles) I loved the red, white and blue stars in Amber's quilt, so mine will look much like hers.
The triangles are sitting on the backing. I don't have quite enough backing, so will have to do something creative there.
So, in the last few days, I have been given some projects to start....like now. What am I doing here??
(Indulging in one of my passions, of course)
Starting tomorrow, I will be starting this costume for the granddaughter (Kenzie) of my friend Sandi. She is playing one the Queen of Heart's attendants in "Alice in Wonderland" The dress is the cream in the background and a double layer apron will be made from the sheer and the heart fabric.
This is the sketch they gave me of what the costume is to look like.
Then I have 2 of the cutest models to do for Suzanne at my favorite quilt store. (Click on her name)
So those are my three projects for this week.
I also received two home dec projects too, but will show you them next week.
Oh, and some pants hemming to do for a friend.
Hope you are all having a great week. It's hot here and I'm going to crank up the air tomorrow and sew,sew, sew.
