This packing up every Sunday to leave my home to come to my other home must be getting to me. Normally I am pretty organized, but this time I blew it.
I brought lots of sewing projects, some of my own and three great models for Strawberry Patches.
Out of six projects (I always have great expectations for my time) I only brought all the supplies for one.
This is what the scraps look like from each of the Girle Girl bags I make. Some I have tossed, but recently I found a way to use these. This is the only project I finished, but it's a Christmas present so I am saving it for a post forRenee's Sewing Christmas in August. Click the button on my sidebar to see how much fun that is.
This is the cutest coat and this corduroy is so soft and sweet. A model.
Need Serger, Covered buttons, Interfacing, thread.
This little dress has pleats in the front. The cutest Pirate fabric. I have never seen Pirate fabric before, and I am sure it will be cute. After all...I trust my friend Suzanne 's sence of style.
Need Serger, Thread, Interfacing, cording.
A very stylish clutch with ruffle and vintage looking pin. Another model for Strawberry Patches.
Need large snap. Not much I know, but it has to be put in before purse can be put together..
This pretty Red Rose Farm fabric I bought long ago when I saw it on one of my favorite blogs. Didn't know what I was going to make, but I finally put together an idea for a new little girls bag,
I don't have a pattern, as I am making it up as I go along. Need an iron on fleese, buttons and a lot of imagination for this one.
This group is for Girle Girl bags and with that new premade grosgrain ruffle formStrawberry Patches I think they (6 of them) will be really cute.
Need Decor bond, buttons, and D rings.
Well, I got all of these thing cut out and ready to sew. I am not as fond of the cutting out part as I am of the sewing part, so I'm kinda glad I was forced to get them cut out all at once.
NOW...Drum roll please. Two very sweet ladies blogged about my tutorial. Thanks to both of you for your sweet words.
I put those names in a hat and Mr. SS drew one.
The winner is:
Elizabeth @ Home Is Where the Heart Is. Click on her name or her button on my sidebar and visit this talented, sweet lady. Elizabeth, please e-mail with your address, so I can mail you the watermelon coasters and basket.
Since there was only two, I'm thinking the other sweet lady is going to get a little something too.
Next week, I get to bring two of the grandkids, Kobi and Cade for the week. Gee, hope I remember to pack them. This week wasn't a total loss after all. We played lots of Scrabble and I hate to admit it, but Mr. SS is getting pretty good. Me, I'm still stuck on those 4 letter words.
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
