How to Make Paper Snowflakes

Did you ever want to know how to make paper snowflakes? Well, here you go! I found this awesome video tutorial that makes it super easy to do.

But first, I want to give an update on where I've been. What a year! I have not been right physically since my car accident in November of 2009. Some of you may remember that I was out of work for 8 months. Then I tried to go back to work last year. I struggled through but things got worse oner the course of the year. I finally got a correct diagnosis on my shoulder giving my extreme pain validation. Bottom line is that I am now out of work for good. Disability. I never, ever thought I would ever be in this position. But here I am. The good news is that I can still sew and blog. I just have to limit how long I'm at either. I can live with that. I can tell you this, I have a heartfelt empathy for those who are in chronic pain and dealing with meds that throw your body for a complete loop. Sign,

Let's concentrate on the good things shall we? 

Now without further ado, let's get on with it......and hopefully there is still time to get some things created for Christmas gifts!!! I do believe there just might be. Yup, that's what I call fun.

Back to the snowflakes. Click on the play button to view the video below.....oh and have fun. I did!!

Happy Sewing!!

Catching up

Hi there, I've missed you! Did you wonder what happened to me? Well, I got hit big time with a virus, pneumonia and a staff infection all at once. Yikes! What a winter it has been. I've been out of work now for a couple of weeks recovering after a week long hospital stay. (not fun by the way). The good news is that I'm finally on the mend and getting my strength back. I'm expecting to go back to work mid-week next week after a final follow with the doc. (who has been struggling with illness himself for several weeks).

I'll have some new posts soon. I've a fun penguin pillow to show you and some other goodies that are quick to whip up!! Come back soon and we'll chat. What have you been up to? I'd love to hear what's been happening in blogland in my absence. :)

Gather Up Your Scraps For This One!

I used up several scraps to try out this new Gathered Clutch pattern from Noodlehead.

From this angle is a bit tough to see the gathers.

The only variation I made to the pattern was to add this metal loop for a handle. Which I just realized that I forgot to take a picture of.

This inside has pockets for debit/credit cards and a separater.

I'm linking up to Sew and Tell Friday over at AmyLouWho's.

Happy Sewing!!

Did You Ever Find Yourself...........

.......undecided about what to do with fabric that you've had for so long that, well, let's just say a long time.

Then you iron it............

.............and a bright idea hits you!

... to just go ahead and use that undecided strawberry, daisy fabric for an ironing board cover.
It makes me think of summer every time I iron now. I'd stay and chat, but I just got a hankering for leomonade.

Happy Sewing!!

Mug Rugs Are All the Rage

So I just had to see what all the fuss was about.

Sip, snug, comfy on the outside. The inside says............

Oh, and this is the back...I have to say it felt good to work with some non snowman/Chrstmas fabrics.

Such a cutie size. Ok, I do see what the fuss is about. (sorry for the shadow)

I'm hooked. Can't get enough of polka dots.
Oh, yes, the inside of the mug says, "You will find rest for your soul." Jeremiah 6:16

Now. I do like the sound of that.  Happy Sewing!!
