Bunting Time...

1 comment:
It's Bunting Time...
A Glamping we will Go!
Old jeans, bits of fabric scraps and yoyos and trims...
and of course having an embroidery machine helps too!
Shabby Chic meets country rustic...

an old tattered table cloth, broken jewelery, more bits-n-pieces of lace...and the backside is burlap!
What's more trailer cute then embroidered trailers and Flamingos....

This one is on it's way to my childhood best friend in Germany...
and customizing the flags makes it even more fun to give...
Hmmm, I think I need to make a few more.....

A Little Sewing Time Equals 3 Aprons...

2 comments:
The weather was a wee bit dreary yesterday, so  I got in a little stitching time...
And here is what I made...
 using left over fabric from other projects I was able to make this 'Clothes pin" apron... with 2 roomy pockets and a small hanky pocket..
 I had this fabulous "Cocktail" fabric left over from an Apron Swap that I did 2 years ago,,,
 the play on a Black & White theme was fun but I just had to add a wee bit of color
 so I used the a bit of another fabric to make the pocket... tucked in a hankie and now I have a cute party apron...
I am currently working on making a Banner out of old denim jeans... and had the back side left over... what to do??? why make an apron of course! and again using the last bits of scrape fabric.

And as always,,, you will find a 'yoyo' or two on my aprons...
Now if only I liked to cook! lol!

Bass Lake 2015

No comments:
I had lunch with some lovely friends today at Bass lake.
Here was the view from 'Miller's Landing' where we ate at the lake...
as you can see, the water level is very low due to the 3 year drought Central California is experiencing.
We are hoping that by summers end we will get a good Autumn rain season.
