my daughters kitten thinks that all bags belong to her, she loves to curl up in them , I had one filled with things that just needing a little tweaking here & there like this Annie that she pulled out of my bag , we laughed so hard at how she looked like she’d just fell out lol

A FEW HAPPY CUSTOMERS

we both did so well we thought it only fitting to go by Bath & Body after the show, with a sale like that how could we not , we were in lotion heaven! & yes we brought  a lot of that heaven home with us lol!

now it’s time to get back to sewing, there’s  a Cardigan waiting to be finished, there lots of new fabrics that’s been added to the stash, I came across a blogger  that said she sews her muslin with a  basting stitch then takes it all out & sews it once it’s tweaked & just right as apposed to making  a muslin that can't  be taken apart resulting in making one after another, this method sounds like a good idea to me

 this made me laugh when a friend sent it to me on face Book, I replied back but I don’t have a door lol! for you see my sewing room is off my bedroom, there use to be a big Jacuzzi  in the middle of the floor but we had it removed before we bought the house, I discovered today  show time is closer than I thought, we’re talking losing  a whole week lol! so in the next two weeks things will be flying in the sewing room, the machine will be smoking, candles will burn at both ends, it may even flow out into the bedroom lol!

I quickly made a supply list to make sure I have everything, you know how it is, once you leave to go to town you never get back lol

muslin         fiber fill

threads       buttons

ric rac         laces

patterns     grapevine wreaths

paints          stain

cinnamon   sandpaper

felt                 embellishments

glitter           glue

yarns            jute

homespun’s    solids  stripes

did I forget anything? lol!
