Green and Dark Denim Purse

Here is a purse that I finished last night for a custom order. The lady who ordered it, saw another in my shop that was similar and requested these fabrics. Turned out cute! The flower accent is pinned in place but is removable if she wants to move it to another spot on the bag.

Sorry the pictures are not so great. I didn't have a chance to take them in good lighting!

Khaki and Black

Well after thinking that I never wanted to sew another thing in my life, I think I am getting my groove back. The thing is that I started (and now finished) a large rag-time quilt as a gift quite awhile ago. I should have known better. I know that I don't like to do huge projects but I did it anyway and was feeling uninspired for awhile and not at all interested in sewing.

However, last night I cleaned off my machine and table and got busy making this bag for the lady who works at the post office in St. Lina (yes there is a post office there). She wanted it as a gift for someone.

Anyway in just over an hour I whipped this up!! Yeah that's the kind of projects I like. Quick and dirty. Okay not dirty, but you know what I mean. I hope she likes it. It's not going in my etsy shop since it is a private sale outside of etsy. But I thought i would post it here.

Loving Nature

Today as I was out and about, I decided to grab my camera and take some pictures of the things in my yard. I love flowers and plants and I actually have quite a natural and planted assortment here.
It was such a nice day today. I am really appreciating the sun, since it has been such a rainy June so far. It was warm and sunny.
So aside from taking a bunch of pictures of baby today for his blog, I snapped a few of some pretty things!
The planter is actually an old freezer compartment to a fridge I think. I noticed something laying in the bush one day as I was walking down the driveway. So I pulled it out. My husband thought I was crazy, but I really like the look of it. So we washed it up and I planted some flowers in it! I love it!

Just a little update

When I first started this blog, I sort of started it just about crafts and posting things for sale. I didn't know (still don't) how to build a website for this purpose. Every now and then I would post a little thing about me and my life, such as being a mommy, trying to shed poundage etc. My focus was still crafts though.
Now after reading other peoples blogs, and learning about what helps a person sell on line I have decided to incorporate more of my life into this blog and not just post things for sale. I have almost completed my 1 year blog for my son, so I think I might be able to find a few extra minutes here and there to update this one. And also put some sweat and tears into my etsy shop. Things aren't moving fast there, but I know it's because there is so much to learn and I don't have a clue where to start!
Anyway I am so tired tonight as this was my first week off maternity leave and back at work. I have decided just to go part time, but it has still been a huge adjustment. I am very happy with my decision. I find I am relaxed since I have a wonderful sitter, and my son is doing so well! I feel very lucky today!!
