Chances are it's you, but I'll be kind and blame it on Photobucket this time.
I am keeping my fingers crossed and sending prayers that you have a good offer and things go smoothly.

The pillow cover I made fit but Judy said that I told her it was made from the old flannel. She did not say if it had enough give to it or not.

Does anyone have the measurements for making pillowcases? I signed up for them on the big give and I can't find my measurements I generally use and am too lazy to search right now.

went from a million posts in two days to dead quiet. What happened ? Are we all busy sewing ? I know I've been busy packing and getting my house ready for pictures to sell.

We actually put the pillowcase on BEFORE she left my house and it fit perfectly. BUT, it was from her old stash of flannel and I have heard the NEW size flannel only yields three pillowcases. IHTH!

Showing MY age now, I didn't see this entire next page... It was a snug fit, no give. I just rechecked it.

Where's Waldo?

I haven’t posted in forever so got carried away with this post, but I know you’ll humor me.

I love string backpacks. I don’t like to carry a purse on vacation, so I shove my wallet in my front pocket and put everything else in the backpack. I go to Disney in February and have had a couple of very rainy and very cold visits and the backpack is perfect for carrying a sweatshirt, poncho (always a poncho, no matter what the weatherman guesses the weather might be) and a few other things if need be. I have a pullover windbreaker, so sometimes by the end of the evening if I’m wearing the sweatshirt, I can fold up the backpack and put in in the front “kangaroo pouch” of the windbreaker. I like to travel light.

Since I tend to blend in with all of the other distinguished looking women at Disney World, I thought I’d make it easier for you to spot me. Here’s my latest backpack.



Hanging from one side is hand sanitizer



And from the other is a “place holder” which I’m planning to replace with a fun key chain.





I also made a cover for a notepad. My son will be with me for half of the trip, but since I usually go solo it’s nice to have something to do at dinner, so I write down thoughts about the day . . .



I put smaller things in a zippered pencil case, although it occurred to me I should probably make one, but it’s cheaper to buy one than to buy the zipper to make one!



I made tissue covers for the children’s sermon at church a few weeks ago so made myself one, too. I also made a cover for my first aid kit.



Cozy in the front pocket.



I made myself a new wallet this year. Last year I designed it especially for my trip, and other than the pocket that I made for the room safe key (whoops) it was exactly what I wanted. I ended up using the pocket for my pills each day, so I kept it in this year’s wallet.

A tri-fold wallet so it fits in my front pocket.



With a little coin pocket



Inside pockets for license, insurance card, credit card, rewards card, and center pocket for room key.



Aforementioned inside pocket (gotta start using aforementioned more, that’s a good word!)



And a secret pocket. I keep a few large bills in there AND I always keep some ones, too. Shhh, it’s a secret.



Now you’ll be able to spot me if you see me at Disney. Look near any of the snack carts.

Both. I was wanting to make a star wars circle skirt with a tank with minnie leia on it, then I wanted a circle skirt---with princess colors for my friend to applique and make a shirt to go with it--this would be for Park Fare. I needed something for Tusker and Toy Story.

I am also in need of 2 more days of outfits which sadly might become iron on transfers. I also need to make the hair bows to go along with all of this, I can do it right? I love seeing what everyone else is doing it give me inspiration. Happy Sewing ladies
Welcome! Of course you can get all that done!! Seriously, that's a lot of work, but if you love it so much, it doesn't seem like work at all. My hang up is the cutting out part. Once that's done, the sewing is such fun! Good luck and don't forget to post pictures of all your creations.

I've heard of Avon Lake, but I'm not all that familiar with Cleveland. I go to the baseball stadium and Playhouse Square and that's about it. I really need to get out more!

What a lot of work to get a house ready to sell! Hope it sells quickly. I've been away for four days visiting family. How did the grandparents like the dress? And the little birthday princess? I'm sure they were thrilled!

Love, love, love that backpack!! What great ideas for everything! The fabric is such fun too. Have a great trip! I know I said that before, but it does bear repeating. I'm quoting the aforementioned post of course!

That is totally AMAZING!!! I love it!!! So jealous!

Trying to sell a house is so stressful. I guess I should be happy (?) that the market here is terrible and that my neighbors all bought more than they could afford so my neighborhood is littered with foreclosures so we would never be able to sell our house anyway. (sigh.) It does help purge though, so that's always good. We had a realtor come to our old house and she took TERRIBLE photos, they were all off-kilter and some were blurry, and none of them showed the rooms, more like just the furniture, so I used my super-wide lens and took my own photos, I truly think it helps to have great photos.

I have been busy busy, my mother in law got here friday for a week visit, though we are supposed to be getting an uber snowstorm so it is unclear if she will be staying longer. She has been occupying my kiddos so I can work on etsy orders and finish up a LOT of unfinished projects. I finished this quilt which I started last summer.



And I got a commission from a friend I have known since High School to make a baby quilt as a gift for a friend of hers. I love the way it is turning out, I got the whole quilt top done, now onto the tedious task of layers/quilting/trimming/binding.




I think most of the appliques came from Lynnie Pinnie, I think they turned out adorable. It's for a little girl who has an under-the-sea theme nursery.

Now back to my little sweatshop so I can get back to my projects.
Jen
