Christmas Holidays are over and a new year is here. Starting the new year with a sewing studio filled with wonderful fabrics begging to be used, and a 4 1/2 foot puzzle on the kitchen table to be completed. Ok 2016 bring on what you have in store for me. I am set to conquer the worst and embrace the best.
I have been working on a Door Hanging for Christmas. I am having so much fun decorating for the Holidays this year. The first in a while for just hubby and myself. We are having fun. All I need to do is add decorations for the tree. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for my family and that the Lord has blessed me with good health and a wonderful family.
Kansas City Royals are back in town having won the World Series Championship. Way to go Royals!
I am ready for the craft fair at Fort Osage Upper Middle School on Saturday. Baby quilt finished and ready to get to the post office. Now I am thinking of 100 more things to make. Does anyone out there have that problem? Too many ideas in the brain? I am there. So I will post the next project when I decide.
Today is a day to work on a baby quilt. I am having fun designing and making this one of a kind quilt. We are having a dreary morning and then a sunny afternoon. KC Royals won the 1st game of the World Series last night with a wild and exciting 14 endings, won by 1 run. Let’s see what tonight brings. Glad I can sew and watch television together.
Sorry, I haven’t posted in a few days. Some days are just crazy. Saturday we went to Waverly, MO and got apples. Gary and I made 12 pints of applesauce and 36 pints of apple butter. Now tonight I have to finish Cc’s Alice in Wonderland dress, and then start a new project. Gotta decide what.
Need cute quick pumpkins for Autumn? Try these…took only 30 minutes to make and you can get as creative as you want.
Now for the most used item that will be on the inventory for November These are microwave bowl holders. Put them in the microwave with the bowl, heat. You won’t burn your hands when handling the bowls. We use ours daily.
Microwave Bowl Holders
These are in 2 sizes. Cereal bowl size and mixing bowl size. Love them.
Today brings clean carpets, yoga class, and now to make some Microwave Bowl Holders for the Nov. 7th craft fair. This one will be at the Fort Osage Elementary school. Getting excited. Only a few more weeks to finish things up. Found a good home for “Frankie and Stiena”. They are the last pair to find homes.
More picture of future projects in the future.
We are a little chaotic but a lot of fun!
The women in our family decided it would be a great idea to start a Facebook together which is leading to a blog and as well as an Instagram. I will introduce myself & then let mom do her introductions. As my sister & sister-in-law join in I’m sure they will say hi as well.
My name is Alicia, I am the oldest of 3 children. I have 2 beautiful teenage daughters so between 2 jobs and the girls I keep very busy. I also have 3 dogs and a cat. My craft is crocheting and knitting. I love it so much. I have learned my serotonin is low, so the crocheting and knitting keeps my hands and mind busy so I don’t dwell on things I cant fix. I try to remember to give those things to God. I look forward to posting all the exciting things I am working on.
Hello, I am Jackie, the mother of Alicia. I am very Blessed to have 3 of the most amazing children I could hope for. My passion, outside my children is fabric. I love to sew, quilt, anything with fabric. I will try most crafts at least once. My husband Gary, does beautiful wood working. My hope is to share some creative ideas with you. I look forward to being able to hear your ideas also.
