A Weekends Worth of Sewing

Just a quick little "check in" to show you what I accomplished this weekend.  There is only ONE week left to prepare for the show so I can't visit long today.  It was a weekend filled with finger puppets........

Well it's back to work for me---this week I will be sewing dolls.  Check back soon for pictures.  Have a great week :)

Bunnies and Chicks

Well the count down continues and I have been sewing like crazy--from early morning---while Drew naps---and late into the night.  I  decided to take a short break this afternoon (while the sun is shining) to snap a few pictures of  some of my new finished items for the craft fair.  This week I have been working on finger puppets.
Easter peeps waiting for their little eggs......

What would Easter finger puppets be without the Easter Bunny

I packaged them in a clear box--tied with bakers twine--and added a little carrot. After all every bunny needs a carrot :)

Ok well that is enough silliness--it's back to work for me.  The rest of the week I will be sewing more finger puppets (the ones that are not just for Easter) so check back soon I will post pictures of them as well.  Have a happy rest of the week  xoxo

Curbside Treasures

I am sure that you have all heard of the saying "What is one man's trash is another man's treasure".  I am living proof that this statement is very true.  Yes I have been known to do a "U" turn right in the middle of the street to save a sweet chair from the certain grips of the trash man.  I call these  rescued items my curbside treasures.  Today I added to my collection of these treasures.  I was with my husband, my son and my mom--which made it a little tricky to complete the rescue.  We were headed off to breakfast and because of the President's Day holiday the garbage men had not made their rounds like they normally would.  As we  drove and chatted with each other I suddenly gasped---"STOP"  out of the corner of my eye I spotted this.....

This amazing vintage crib was set on the curb to await the trash men. 

I just could not let that happen. It took a little convincing but Alex said if I was the one to pluck it off the curb and place it in the trunk,  he would stop---good deal---the crib headboard was mine.  As I was loading the headboard, I also noticed another treasure.....

A vintage wooden highchair in amazing condition.  Unforturnaly, there was not room in the car to rescue the chair.  Oh well it had to be left behind.  Breakfast was yummy and we headed home.  But you guessed it, I could not stop thinking about that little chair.  To make a long story short--after we dropped off my mom and my son--my wonderful husband agreed to return.  I am now the proud owner of a vintage highchair.  All in all a great day!!!----breakfast with my family and vintage sweetness (for free)  Hope you are having a great day too

Only 15 more days until my next craft fair and I am getting really excited--yes and a bit nervous.  I have never participated in this actual event and I am not sure just what to expect.  It will be taking place at a local farm market, Trax Farm in their events room.  During the show, Trax Farm will also be hosting a flea market in their green house. There will also be activities for children to entertain while their mommies and daddies shop.  Needless to say I have been glued to my sewing machine and my house--well lets just say it needs a bit of attention :)  Not only is my sewing room a mess but I have now trickled out onto my kitchen table.  I must say I am excited about the items I have created.  We finally have a sunny day so I hurried to take a few pictures to share with you. 
Soft and Cute washcloths for a fun tubby time.

I will be selling these in sets of three.  Packaged all together, tied with bakers twine with a little tag and a button just for fun.

Snuggie Bibs

I have been practicing my embroidery and decided to add it to these little bibs.  I also added a layer of batting and backed them with a soft chenille fabric.  My sweet niece sure looked cute in  hers :)
Well I hope you liked my little show and tell---I am off to sew----time is ticking away and I have so much more that I would like to make for the show......
