In Bloom

The trees are all in Bloom around here unfortunately so are my allergies! But I did get some beautiful shots this weekend. We got to take the kids to the park this weekend and the weather was just beautiful!

I also went yard sale-ing this weekend and found a few fun things! I am a sucker for blown glass ornaments so I was very excited when I found this box full of glittery shiny loveliness!
On to sewing I am working on a few projects right now one is for the Trendy Textiles Bell Bottom launch with Jennifer Paganelli I am super excited about! Here is a peek at the fabrics I will be using for 1 design.
Until next time! Meg

It's about time........

Even though I sew everyday I am really really bad about making something for myself. I have been carrying the same purse (which is brown cord and so out of season now) around for about 6 months and thought it was about time for something new! I am using the beautiful fabrics from Jennifer Paganelli's Sis boom line. Here is a sneak peek! I hope to have it finished by tomorrow I am really excited to start carrying it!

Pretty Package

I got this pretty package from Pinks & Needles ( a little something for myself) I am simply amazed at the detail on each pin topper and the fact she does it all by hand! If you have not already, stop by her etsy shop and take a look!
The look so pretty in my flower pin cushion!
I made another on in different colors! I will soon have a flower patch! Thought I would share these pretty Spring time photos I took the other day!

*Some exciting news I have a tutorial in the works and there is going
to be a give away in the near future!*
Have a Happy Evening! Meg
