Sewing Machine Covers

I have made quite a few Sewing machine covers lately.  Mostly custom orders.  I have had fun coming up with some new designs.  Can I make one for you?  Here is the  link to my Etsy shop.

The latest one I made for a friend.

My new label!!  CUTE!!  These came from Jennifer's Jewels

One customer sent me her fabric

This was fun with the print with the giraffes

Have a great day!

Busy But Quiet

Whew, where did May go...I have been traveling more in the last month than I have in a few years combined...

I am limping along here on the business side, with an always increasing To Do List and finding my way in the computer end of the business.... I will just keep plugging along.

On the sewing side, I have been busy.  I had some dresses that I cut out last summer and never sewed.  They were quick and I think they turned out very cute!!

They will be listed in my Etsy shop tomorrow.

I have also branched out a bit.  My daughter Rachel has a play mat/quilt that she uses for her daughter Cora.  Very good idea.  Here is my first attempt at a play mat.

folds up and is held together with velcro

 I sewed the three layers together and turned them right side out (birthed) turned out a bit wrinkled, next one will have a binding.   This will be in my Etsy Shop tomorrow as well.

There is more but I think I will save them for another post next week.
Have a great weekend.

A Life Well Lived

Many of you know that my brother has been battling cancer.  Yesterday he lost that battle.  I am back in Colorado for a few days,  The Memorial Service is Tuesday.

My brother was a great husband, dad, son, brother!!  Truly a Life Well Lived!  We will all miss him so much.

Mike loved golf, this is the flag at the 8th hole, behind his house

Remember me?

It has been a long time since I have posted...  I spent a week out in Colorado with my brother and various members of our families.  Being together was an awesome time, but a very sad reason to get together...I hate Cancer!!!!!!!

Our families together

Back in New Hampshire, I have been busy getting ready for a Bazaar at a fundraiser for a local language school.  I will set up a table and see what happens.

My daughter Sarah (the blond in the photo above) is in Singapore with my son and daughter-in-law.  I made Danielle a diaper bag and changing pad, and some burp cloths.

The fabric is from the Parson Gray collection Curious Nature.  I love the more masculine prints, great for a boy with out being too cutesie.

The pattern is from Favorite Things Sewing,  The Mama Mia Diaper Bag, a fairly easy pattern to use.  I might change some things if I make it again.

I have made some other items for the Bazaar I will share these later in the week.

Have a great week.
