color my world orange

Well, orange proved to be quite simple to find.
I love orange. I've been slow putting them on
cuz I can't seem to pull my self away from the
sewing machine!

home sick

Well I guess I'll be sewing a lot--at least till next Wed. I hurt my back at work last Friday and can't go to work. Doc says...therapy 3 times a week starting sometime next week. I have 2lb weight limit, plus no twisting, pushing etc... So I came up with a new pattern to make baby bibs! The pink one is all scrap on the front. I made the denim one to go with the denim baby shoes. The bright ones are reversible--both fronts are strip pieced--one with terry, one with Bali and applique. And for the white bib and bootie set, I used dupioni silk. Today I made a patriotic one ,will make more I think.
All bibs and shoes are one of a kind.

For orders please leave a comment and e-mail.
Most of my shoes sell for $15.00 and Bibs for $8.00
The silk set sells for $ 30.00

baby robin

We are landscaping our back yard, and this little guy landed on our wheel barrel handle .
He was there for 2 days. His mommy kept him fed,and he finally went to the ground on day 3.
Hope the neighborhood cats don't see him as DINNER!

I Love fabric

As if I didn't have enough fabric, I went to Joann Fabric and bought more.
I went to get elastic and to try to find some cute buttons for my baby shoes.
I came out with a lot of fat 1/4's of beautiful bright fabric.
Now that I have them all stacked up I don't want to cut them. (Bummer).
I will make myself use it ALL (...mostly) before I go back for more.

coffee cozies

I have been making a lot of these coffee cozies,
mostly from scrap material. If you sew you know that scraps are STILL FABRIC.
I've had fun piecing the fabric and creating one of a kind pieces of art that can fit in your purse !You will have it with you when you be-bop into your favorite coffee shop.
Say good-bye to those old brown ones.
