And this is where I've ended. :0) This is Cass' skirt. Rye's below has a flower on it's waist band, Cass didn't want the flower.

This is the dress that I made for Rye, the skirt on the dress and I did not get a long very well, but we made it work! :0) Rye loves it and it's nice for an everyday type dress. LOVE LOVE LOVE my new sewing machine! Thanks mom!

Well, I got my AS degree on Saturday, so awesome! :0) It's been fun... OH! And we start again on the 19th of this month. Yahoo for continuing with school. But it's good to get my AS and to HAVE that. Ya know? We didn't take that many pictures, here's the one I have right now. :0) I haven't downloaded any of the others yet. Yeah for graduation!

More UFOs :0)

I recovered some of the pillows on our couch. So much fun! It's made the room feel bigger and brighter. It's been a fun change. Every time I look at it I feel like I fall in love with it all over again.

These are the two wreaths I made this weekend. :0) So much fun. Only problem is one of them broke in the wind today so I had to put the other one out there. I was really sad but I'll just re-make it.

It's been a fun weekend. :0) Lots of things accomplished!

Mending UFO #2

I am on a roll today, but don't worry, tomorrow I'll start back with my homework and everything will go back to normal. :0) I did some mending today though. I even mended something that was all stretchy... I'm pretty happy with myself. So, I mended Cass' jacket, two sweaters, a cami, a pair of jeans, and pair of capris. The jeans I must say are not for everyday wear. They are just for around the house, but I thought they were fun. :0)

Shower curtain into tablecloth!

I just finished my first UFO. I turned a shower curtain into a tablecloth. :0) It's really simple and for those of you with square tables this is the perfect way to get one in any style/color/season you want!

So my pictures are in the wrong order, but it's just going to have to do for right now. :0) Isn't it cute? I can't wait to find more shower curtains! This took about 15 mins and that's with kids up and needing stuff. Plus, I'm on the slow side of sewing. :0) So not a big deal though. OH the possibilities!

My friend Rosie is hosting a contest this month. It's all about getting those unfinished projects done. Well, I have a few that I've been meaning to get done and actually ended up adding like 5 more to my list just in the past two days. So... my list!

*Two different wreaths.
-One for spring
-One for summer
... Now I must add that all I've had for the summer wreath is a hanger for the longest time, but I am now starting to collect fabric for it and hopefully should be able to start that soon.
... The one for spring I don't have all the stuff for either, but these are still projects that are bugging my brain. :0)
*I have fabric to make 4 skirts, two for each of the girls, now just to get it together and sew them.
-1st figure out how to re-purpose shirts into skirts for the girls!
*I also have fabric to make envelope pillow cases for three of my couch pillows. Now, I know when I'm going to be doing this and it's not going to be this month it will be next month though. On our 10 day break from school. :0)
*Mending! I have a pile of mending to do. As long as I can get enough homework done today then I can mend tomorrow. Yahoo!
*I have another new project! I know, why am I doing this to myself with all the other stuff I have going on? Well, I'm a sucker for punishment! No not really, I just really like having something other than school work and cleaning to do. :0) I am going to take a cute shower curtain and turn it into a table cloth. That's right people! I'm really excited about this one. Did you know it's really hard to find 70 x 70 table cloths? Well, did you know that most shower curtains are 72 x 72 or 70 x 72? Isn't that just perfect? Anyways, can you tell how excited I am? :0) This I'm going to try to get done this weekend too.

LOTS to do! Better stop blogging and get something done, right? :0)

Hello y'all! :o)

Well, we haven't been up to much and yet we've been busier than ever... I guess that happens when you have 3 kids, school, work, dance, and gymnastics, plus the countless other things just to do in a day.

But, lets see... We went to Florida for Christmas and Atlanta for New Years/Travis' birthday, which was all really fun. We got to see a lot of family and that was awesome.

We came home to school and work right away, which was a little crazy. I still have some organizing of new toys to do from Christmas. Sad, I know, but true.

School is going well for everyone. :0) Work too. Gym and dance are good. Travis is good. The girls are good. Tony and I are good.

Life is good.
