Whoop! Whoop! 7.3.2015

My Friday finish is more Little Dresses!

Nine more from the pillowcases that I received earlier in the week.











I'll be turning this set in on Sunday July 5, 2015 and that should wrap up my Little Dress making… but never say never so I just might be making more!

Onto Something New…Maybe…

I started another quilt…jelly roll race style but it is NOT what I pictured in my mind!

Will need to think this one over for a bit.




We had our last official sew day for the Little Dresses.

Are you ready?

The count is at 421!

Whoop! Whoop!

We are expecting a few more to come in but not exactly sure of the number.

While I was there…I picked up a few pillowcases.

More Little Dresses to be made!

Whoop! Whoop! 6.26.2015

I'm EXPLODING!

Well -- not me, but the number of Little Dress I have made!

My June UFO was to complete 25 dresses and I made 46!

I was #34 on the June Goal Setting Party.

I had quite a few donations of pillowcases that I was able to transform by following Nancy's Notion's pattern. I used elastic in the neckline since Baby DID NOT LIKE sewing over a thick neckline.

My total goal was to make 50 Little Dresses and I made 66!

I needed to take the pictures of the Little Dresses in installments.

I found this half set of Target wire cube shelving while cleaning and thought if I hooked them together flat-- I could use it to hang the Little Dresses and maybe quilts. (I was using the swing set but that is now a memory.)

I am on the lookout for a complete set in the house that is not currently in use to expand to quilt size cube wall…

Cleaning and Re-organizing...

…the card/scrapbook room, that is!

Since I finished Squirrel's (aka Viktor Ardvisson) scrapbook in April , I simply closed the door and started sewing. Well -- this week I decided it was time to tackle the makeover project! A friend of DD's gifted me a 12 x 12 paper tower and I brought a few more 12 x 12 smaller plastic bins -- I was ready! I sorted through all the paper scraps and divided them up…multi colored, warms, cools and b/w bins. It reminds me of how I sort through the scraps in the sewing room. lol. I tossed a lot of scraps that I thought were unusable and cut down others to a more usable shape. I also separated out the punches so that they all lay flat in the bins -- I had to add another over size bin!

All in all, it took a better part of three days to restore order.

DD walked in and exclaimed, "THERE IS A FLOOR!"

and

"LOOK! SO MANY DEAD LADYBUGS!"

A vacuuming picked up most of the visible *stuff*.  lol.

Along the way, I made some girl-y birthday cards.

Here is a close-up of some of the cards.

When I went to put them away -- I discovered that I already had girl-y cards made up. Such is life…now I have about 2 year supply. lol

Ta-Da!

The cleaned up and organized card/scrapbook room!








I REALLY REALLY want to sew but my sewing space needs a spruce up, too.
