Look at what my honey is making from cedar as birdhouses to sell to those interested in owning 1 or a pair!!! This pair is for our yard and they will be what the template is made for future ones…. I love them!!!
Earlier in the week I got on a bib making kick for Ellie and Jannessa’s grandson Liam so I made bibs… on Cleopatra my 319w
After applying the velcro on opposite sides and sewing them together with a thin batting inside… I trimmed it all down with my pinking shears….
Pushed out all the little edge bits with my special tool …
And before I knew it … Molly was photo bombing a pic…
And I had finished 7 bibs… 5 for little Ellie and 2 for Liam 🙂
With those then successfully mailed on Tuesday I focused on my slow stitching progress…
This is the planning phase… then I went for Julius to help me with all these hst’s 🙂
Soon we had the 5 fall leaves… I did change the order once I took the first photo though…
It didn’t take much to sew them together and press the whole thing then it was time to mark and sew the smaller squares from the free pattern for this table runner.
And before I knew it I was making the zig zag border come to life with it’s hst’s and my ideas…
Then Friday I got these photos … they had received and LOVED the bibs I sent to my sweet grand daughter…
I was beyond thrilled.
Also on Thursday while in Asheville to go to the doctor… we looked and bought this desk from the 1930’s era….
I neglected to share this a couple weeks ago when I received her back… but here is the Raggedy Ann I had as a young child made by a distant but loving aunt. She needed repair and Jannessa knows how to do this so she took her and fixed her all up!!!! Now she hangs out proudly with our oldest sewing machine we own and some other favorite items we have…
I hope you each have a blessed and busy week ahead…
Beautiful progress on your hand stitching this week. Love the fabrics you picked for your fall leaves project. Molly is adorable. Your sweet granddaughter is the perfect model for the new bibs.
Your fall table runner is gorgeous! Love the fabrics you used. Looks like a lot of slow stitching is happening at your house!
Oh my goodness, you two have been busy. I can't believe how quickly that desk was transformed into a beautiful sewing table. I love the train bird houses and the bibs. Your granddaughter is adorable. That table runner is beautiful. I made leaves like that years ago for a project that I know I no longer have, but I must have the pattern somewhere as I rarely discard patterns that I have made. Now I have to find it. You've inspired me.
Your honey is super talented! I love the old desk turned sewing cabinet. How beautiful!! The bibs are precious and wasn't it fun to see the baby wearing them? Molly looks adorable with her new \”do\”. I really like your fall table runner. You have been a busy bee!
Lovely progress on the quilting… love the loopdy loop pattern!What a terrific find with that sewing table… perfect for your very pretty machine!
Great bibs, and beautiful quilting!
The bird houses are so cute! Swoon is just moving along, so pretty. Your new sewing machine cabinet is beautiful! I'm sure those bibs are going to be put to good use, especially if she's drooler. Have a good week!
