Photos and Projects...

I never tire of taking photos of Tag (& his warthog).


I started a little embroidery project...

This is Curly Sue...the dog I potty each day.


Here are two little wooden toys (for dolls) that I had custom-made by Jessica, Etsy shop You're Inspired .  The puppy is named Tagalong.  The magpie is not named. They stand about 3" tall and are just the cutest things, ever!!!  One day, I may share the story of the magpie with you...hopefully in the near future.

I have a bunch of sewing to do for members of my family.  I keep putting these projects off, but I really do need to get at them.

The list:
*two sweatshirts to convert to jackets for my aunt
*two skirts need linings for sister Jill
*special stitches on a plastic canvas needlepoint to finish for sister Jill (I don't even like plastic canvas stuff, so am not sure why I was asked...or why I agreed...to do this)
*two pillows for me Mum and sister Julie for their new chairs
*a 'road trip case' (using the music fabric shown in an earlier post), *two skirts (one for my granddaughter and one for sister Joyce's granddaughter...actually, I volunteered to make those).

I think I have a problem with saying, "no".   

AND, now that Naomi Janome is home again, I started working on me Mum's quilt.  I have all the strips sewn together, am in the process of pressing them and then will cut them apart so that I can rearrange them and sew them back together.  ~grin~  (Isn't that what quilting is all about?  Cutting fabric apart to sew back together in different configurations?  Yup.)

I always have something to do!

OH!  Big news!!!  I now have business cards!  woohoo!!!



That's all I have for now...have a great weekend!
