Happy Halloween! I mean Easter wait who forgot about the Irish?

So I've had this pattern around for awhile and just in time for Easter I want to tell you about my Halloween Treat Bag Pattern! 
Ha, I know I must enjoy confusing the life out of my poor family and house. Nobody ever knows what holiday it really is here :)
 These are a tiny little pattern for an adorable Halloween trick-or-treat bag. I made some about 3 years ago for my own kids thinking there had to be something cuter (and with a larger capacity) than the classic pumpkins :) I made them with fabric lying around in green, and purple, or yellow, orange black, etc. You pick any of those Halloween colors and put it on a little kid in a cute costume and you can't go wrong! So they turned out adorable but I did learn a few things in the process :) So I thought I'd write it up and share! Now your kids can have even more fun trick-or-treating and the pictures will be fabulous!

Hello My Friends!

Oh what a lovely hiatus! Sorry I didn't warn you! Truthfully I didn't even warn myself :) but I do have a short story to tell you!

Poor homeless things. They need a sign "will work for space"
I've lost my sewing room :( sad I know but it's for a good cause. We've got 2 Sister missionaries living in our basement now and 2 sewing machines living in the dining room! We're working on finding the sewing machines a new home but no good ideas yet. On the plus side the sewing machines are much more accessible! I can't say the same for the dining room table :) hehe! At least I know my husband loves me!

A little fabric love. Vintage Groove by Carolee McMullin for AdornIt!

But as always I'm working on lots of projects!

With St. Patty's day around the corner who knows what could happen!

Pretty little thing...

So this is my new pattern :) It was created around the fall last year and has been selling well locally but I wanted all of you to know it's now available online through my etsy shop which is slowly filling up :) and through the MSQC! I love them!

A Happy Quilt!

When I posted a couple weeks ago I was looking over my blog and checkin things out and I realized way back when I posted this I never followed up with the full amazing details!
I feel a little bad *insert blush* because my partner was the most amazing partner ever!
Just look at all the fabulous stuff in there! Her name is Kristina Wilberg and her site is Sew Domestic go visit her and tell her I sent you! She is fabulous! She's already finished Doll Quilt Swap 11 And a ton of other swaps and things... Check out her summer post. Whew!

Here's some of the things in her amazing packet of sewing love that she sent me!
Check out the stack of awesome kitschy prints They're spoon flower cuteness and I just used a little of the mushroom print and the foresty print for a little name tag, that's more adorable than my now twelve year old daughter deserves :) but she loves it and so do I!

This is the awesome pieced back! Love the hedgies!

I think we all want to be Kristina now don't we :) or atleast her partner!

By the way the "happy" wall hanging has been in my sewing room for awhile now and I LOVE IT!

Goodbye summer! *wave*, let's sew!

There has been tons happening this summer unfortunately most of it has not been sewing! Bah. It's all crazy I think :) I did fix up a few pairs of jeans that had mysteriously gotten holes in the with some awesome Amy Butler, Jenean Morrison, and I think Riley Blake? OK I must be thoroughly ashamed of myself when I can't remember the designers of all the fabric in my stash. At least I still like them all and these... I love!
OK and serious awesomeness from friends, I posted these on the MSQC forums and someone mentioned having done something similar to lengthen there jeans as kids. Seriously... I love that! maybe even for me :) if the fabric were awesome enough. (I'm now dreaming of my coveted orange and turquoise Amy butler Belle Duck Egg Acanthus)

Oh well, in the mean time I took a great old bench I found, I know you all wish it was yours! Hehe, just wait! I took it from this...
to this!
Why you ask?
Well who doesn't love sitting on there front porch in an awesome turquiose vintage rocker? I do! Now I just want to add some awesome red polka dot pillows, so yeah, I've got plans.

And a little self bragging. Sorry. Shameless I know!
I made an amazing wedding dress this summer!
Check it out!

Yay! There are more pics at this amazing photographers site. (This wedding is all in august, maybe you can even search suzanne, but check it all out) Major eye candy there :) Aside from the dress!
