Is anyone here. I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted on here. New adventures that I would love to share with everyone. Getting back into blogging with new tutorials. Have missed everyone and reading all of your stories for sure.
My new adventure's has taken off with children clothing. It has been a passion of mine and I drifted a little bit away. Now it's a full time business and I love it. Several events are fixing to be here and wanted to tell you about one that starts tomorrow night at 7:00 pm EST. It's at "Landocolors" . A lot of talented Designers. It is a private group, so just ask to join with your email address, you want be disappointed.
Time has flown and now I have 4 grandbaby's , my son is getting married this coming July and my husband wants to retire the first of the year. So life has been busy and loving every minute of it!
Here are a few more photos of the items in Landocolors I made.
I forgot how much fun work you have with a puppy. Getting ready for Canton and got a few things out of the building, came into the house and guess who decided I pulled it out for him. Even got into hubby's golf balls. Gotta love him though.
Thirty eight years ago we started our journey as man and wife, but we really met in the seventh grade and I came home and told my Mom who I was going to marry, little did she know I meant it. This first picture is when we were in High School, boy it doesn't seem that long ago. Looking at these pictures I see how important sewing was in my life then. Remember the pant suits that were in at this time out of knit, I really miss the fact you just washed it and NO IRONING.
I think I was beading me wedding dress up until the night before the wedding. Still have it just wish I could fit into it.
Then this is us leaving for our Honeymoon. Made our going away outfits, even his. Wonder if I could get him in another one. I think he would of wore anything at this time, young love. LOL
A Working on my Vintage Baby Line for Canton and orders, can't keep up and as Martha would say "That's a good thing".
Baby on the Go Bags, handy to carry for a short trip.
And I can't say I've been planting and seeing to our Garden, my husband takes care of it, I'm waiting to do some canning. I just don't mix with HEAT, staying in and sewing has spoiled me to the air conditioner. This is an earlier picture and it has taken off and soon to be picked.
There's a new blog you need to visit, these girls are next to us at Canton and their booth is fantastic. They fit in with the look, cute as can be and a hoot. Just click on the picture to go to their blog. A
We love to go on vacation to Florida and just happens to be the weekend of the Players PGA Tournament. Can't wait to relax and enjoy. Will be coming home sewing up a storm for the next show. Lots of vintage dresses to be made and a couple of baby quilts. Talk to ya soon.
Not sure what I'm doing on this new blogger, but we will see when I publish this post.
Well, I've been out of commission due to a sciatic joint going out, no sewing until now and I've been creating some vintage looks for little girls. These have already sold, so more styles will be listed soon on Calamity Jane's Cottage soon. The top picture is a belt for a little girl and then every girl needs some Lacey Capri's.
Moda Bakeshop is having a contest and you can click on the picture to go to the site and read all about it. Finishing touches for the "Sit and Sew" entry are being done. This is a child's chair you can sit on your cutting table and have all your tools handy, a large pincushion seat, scissor holder, magnetic board to put your notes and a project tote. Fabric used is Moda's Hello Betty by Chloe Closet. (Honey Bun). Can't wait to share this tutorial it was really fun to make.
This is an item I want to have in my sewing room and since I'm moving to a new room, I'm making some accessories to add to it.
I found an old frame for $5.00 and it is big enough for the project. Poster Board and Cork Tiles were found at Hobby Lobby with my coupon so this has turned out to be a very reasonable project to make.
Cut the poster board to fit and slide in the back of the frame. You can tell this frame is old, has the good old vintage look.
I forgot to take a picture before I opened the tiles and had to undo the wadded wrapping. They were $9.99 with 40% off and they come with the sticky attachments to adhere the tiles to the poster board.
Now measure your tiles to your frame and cut with sharp blade. Then peel and put the sticky squares onto the back of the tiles
Turn over and press to poster board and you have an accessory to pin pattern pieces, quilt instructions, list for your next project and so on. I'll show pictures of it hanging in my sewing room as soon as I get some walls painted.
Now below is going to be another project and can't wait to finish it and show.
This is a child's chair and I will show you I drilled a small hole in the seat.
Back to the sewing room to make Little Girls Dresses for the next show. I wanted to venture out from the dress that always sales to something a little different. It has been fun mixing and matching patterns and coming up with new items, even using a quilting ruler to add more detail. Love the vintage look for adults and think it really is cute on little girls for photo's.
I am getting to sew a couple of quilt blocks in between so hope to have a quilt finished to show soon.
When entering the welcoming warmth of my grandmother's home, her quilt frame had to be moved away from the front door to make room for family and friends to gather. With this in mind, the door is always opened to welcome you.
I have been married to my best friend for 35 years. We have been together since the 7th grade, which at that time I came home and told my Mom who I was going to marry. She just laughed. We have 2 children, a son and a daughter, who is married. We feel her husband is one of ours and they gave us three of the grandest grandkids anyone could ask for.
I love to be creative in all areas, but love to make something out of finds from estate sales to flea markets (trash to treasure). I'll be taking pictures of before and after shots and instructions on how some of the items are made. Sewing is my relaxing hobby. I started in the 5th grade summer.
I know all of us who are creative have big dreams and I hope all of yours come true.
I am blessed to have received so many tags/awards in the past. I feel bad when I cannot do them all justice and hate the thought of some friends feeling left out when they are not chosen. All my blogging friends are special and important to me, so therefore, I request to remain tag/award free.
