So excited, going to sew with friends

I feel like my machine needs to be this big to get all the sewing done before the next show. Treasured Friends, the bee I belong to, is getting together for 3 days at the Church we meet at. I'm so excited. Lots cut out and ready to go. I'll be bringing my camera and hope to share some pictures of all the inspiration being created.

Giveaway Coming Soon!

More Baby Gift Ideas

More baby bags to grab and go. I don't know why the neon orange didn't show up in the first photo. "I'm ready to go hunting" and "Ouch Pouch" are some that I've added. I put tissue, cold pack, band aids, hand sanitizer, and a couple of little dum dums to ease the pain. There is plenty of room to add more.

It's been too long, "Baby On The Go" bags

It has been way to long in-between post and catching up with everyone on my bloglist. With the busy season around the corner, I have to sew as much and fast as I can. Hope everyone is doing OK out there in blogland and can't wait to see what all you have been creating.

These little bags I'm making lets me sew and quilt (miss my quilting). They come with wipes and 2 diapers for the new mothers. Just right to grab and go.

I'll be back and hope it's sooner than 3 weeks.

Banana Nut Bread, Yumo!!!

Thought I would give you a great Banana Nut Bread recipe my husband loves. We're on a diet so we have to eat healthy. Banana's are healthy aren't they?

I came back from our sewing group Treasured Friends and put this in the oven. I would say I sewed a lot but I forgot my cord to my machine. Can you believe it. Too many projects going on in this head of mine. Leave for Canton next Wednesday and will post a picture of all the things I've been sewing on.

Banana Nut Bread

1/2 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup mashed ripe bananas

1/4 cup chopped nuts

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat well. Stir in mashed bananas, vanilla and mix well. Stir in nuts. Add Dry ingredients and stir in. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degree for 40 minutes. Yield: 1 loaf.

Fun Stuff!

Last month at Canton, we had a lot of women that wanted boy items. What do you think, do they buy handmade boy clothes? I'm giving it a try. Onesies with little cowboys in mind. The pants have two leather pockets on the side of the legs, with comfortable waste for growing. Working on several of these just to see if they will sell.

Monkey with sock monkey pants, whoops, I'll take picture of it all together later.

Newborn onesie below with removable tutu. The giraffe is well liked at this time.

Bibs are being quilted and it looks like a lot of baby items going on this month. I can't keep posting the little dresses, but maybe some ideas for a baby shower you might have to attend for someone special arriving soon.

Canton was so HOT! Pictures of booth

We had temperatures from 105 to 108 this weekend for the show. Our summer has been extra hot this year and we are hoping it will be cooler for the September show. Our booth looks full, but just wait and see it for the Holiday's. Can't wait for the busy season to arrive. Oh boy, I better get busy!

If you need your room decorated for the new arrival please stop by Rocking Horse Bedding. All bedding, pillows, blankets, etc. are handmade and they will take special orders. Sheree and Laura can make your room so special.

The artwork is done by Nancy at Kidsart by Boecker, she does beautiful watercolor paintings for children rooms and special orders of your best friend (pets) by just sending her a photo. I will get better photo's next time.

Lots of new items being sewn, so I'll be popping in to show you. Need some opinions on what might would sell.

Dresses, Baby Burp Cloths, Bags, Pillows and Towels


I've been sewing, but it hasn't been any quilting items so I haven't posted much. I can show burp cloths, towels, dresses, pillows and bags, but not sure everyone wants to see that sort of sewing. I added ruffles to the back of some of the dresses.


On the other hand I lost my camera memory stick that the computer will only read. So off today to buy another one, couldn't post anything without some kind of pictures. Sat down and there it was (my other one). Isn't that how it is when you can't find something.


I should take pictures of my sewing room and let ya have a big laugh. Been cracking the whip, so you can imagine the mess...

Picture of giveaway, drawing tomorrow!


This will be mailed out Tuesday morning and maybe on some one's table for the Holiday weekend. I have to finish binding it tonight and will do the Random Org. picker around 9:00 pm central time Monday night. So you have until then to leave a comment on the post several down. It measures 58" long X 15" wide. Those that live overseas and a red/white & blue holiday isn't for them maybe you'll just like the colors. Hope someone that can use it will win it.


Would of been earlier, but due to canning and making birthday dresses for some special grand babies, it has ran a little later than planned.


Tomorrow I'm off to sew with Treasured Friends at the Church, can't wait.

Sneak Peek of Giveaway and if I see another TOMATOE!!!

If you haven't noticed, I didn't get any sewing done while watching my grand babies at the lake. So my giveaway is a little late, but good news is you can still enter it in the post below. Sneak peek above and there will be another surprise to go with it.

Below is what I've been doing since we got back from the lake. Vegetables everywhere, canned tomatoes, (rotel, Italian style, and stewed), bread and butter pickles, hot peppers for my stuffed roast I make, recipe here, bread and butter peppers (just made this one up) and string beans. I don't know how the women from the pioneer era did all the chores, canning, washing clothes on a rub board, homemade bread, sewing and mending, large families, etc...I just want to crawl into my little sewing room for a day, but I need to be thankful for all the fresh veggies.

And look what's on the counter, my husband went outside and picked this evening, boy was I HAPPY ;(

You know what this means!!! GIVEAWAY when I come back.




I'm off to Winnie Trade Days and then to the lake for a week, (with 3 grand babies, ages 6, 4 and 2). Please send all the energy you can spare to me and my husband.

Then when I return there will be a surprise giveaway. I'm bringing it with me to the lake to work on so it might just end up being the fabric as the giveaway or maybe I'll get some sewing in at night like I did when my kids were young. But being older I might end up going to bed early too. So I have to say this giveaway is a Surprise. International friends welcome.


Just leave a comment to this question.

What is your favorite fabric color?

This has been on my To Do List

I've had this marked for awhile to make and it seems when we meet on Thursday for our sew-in, I stare at all that needs to be sewn and cannot make my mind up on what to take. My husband said the other morning, "I thought you were going to your sewing group," which took me forever to decide what to sew on. Well not anymore. I'm cutting out the quilt on top right hand side of the magazine and this is what I'm sewing on every Thursday till it's complete. The date on the magazine is 1999. We'll see how long this last, (stay focus, stay focus). It is all templates and batiks. I've had these quite awhile and now the first block is done (had to see about sewing circles) and many more cut out. Yeah!!! The block is just sitting on the other fat quarters.

The rest of my time is spent putting up vegetables from the garden, watching grand babies and sewing for the trade-days weekend coming up in a week.


104 degrees yesterday, so hoping everyone is staying cool.
