Where has this month gone? I have nothing sewing wise to show for it. The above picture is about it, and the only thing I did was to glue fabric onto a hexagon, only 1! Our guild is having a member demo meeting next month. About 7 members show a technique to 7 groups for about 7 minutes. Each group then moves on to the next demonstrator and so on. They love it and often learn something new. I am doing EPP.
Monday I taught my granddaughter Maddy how to sew using her new sewing machine she got for Christmas. She did so well and I think she is hooked. She wanted to make a pincushion. When it was finished up she gave it to me ❤ ! I also gave her some scraps so she can practice.
What I have been doing is cleaning out my house. Except for fabric I really want less stuff around me. Pyrex is so pretty and colorful along with my finds at Anthropologie. I did take some to Goodwill though......
How do rooms end up like this? I know there is not much in here but it should look better than it does! This is a spare room in our basement where I keep all the decorations and highchairs (we now have 3 with another to come).....It's all cleaned up and organized now, I forgot to take a picture.
This is my side of my husband's office. It took me a solid week to clean, file and purge all those old files. Again why did I let it get so bad? It is so much more functional and I can actually find things! I could almost say it is fun to pay bills. This is a big room and would make an excellent sewing room.
I do have an old typewriter on my desk that I wanted to at least move if not just get rid of. My husband uses it about twice a year, so it's staying.
Thank you notes were written with these fun stamps. Who doesn't like getting a letter in the mail?
This past Saturday I had a luncheon for my daughter before she has her baby. All her best girls were there and we had such a nice time. No shower, no sprinkle, no presents, just a celebration of her. We wrote down guesses as to day of birth, girl or boy and name suggestions. Girl won by one vote. We only have a couple of weeks before we know!
