Summer Bucket List :: Tie Dye

dress2Of course tie dye made the list.  It looks like we skipped last summer but the summer before we were all over it.  I kind of wish I’d gone back and read my own post on it before I got started.  I probably wouldn’t have wasted my time AGAIN with disposable gloves.  They are so waaaay beyond useless.

KCWC Spring 2012 : Wrap Up

Not a strong finish the to the week but I did knock something off my to do list.  I ironed this homemade Strawberry Shortcake patch onto this denim dress a while ago and just now got around to stitching it down and since I was being productive I decided to stitch down the pocket flaps too.  They’re fake pockets, are CONSTANTLY wrinkled up and I’m not going to iron the thing so it seemed like a reasonably solution.   Read the rest of this entry »

I Made Something

It’s been a while friends, it’s been a while.  But I did it.  After many weeks of thinking about it I got back on the horse.  It’s a modified version of a dress that I bought for Chase over Memorial Day Weekend.   Read the rest of this entry »

I Have To Say What I Feel

I love a nightie with vintage appeal.  I made this almost 2 years ago and never mentioned it.  I’m going to go out on a limb and say that, since Chase looked like this when I first made it, it must have been too big to go into the rotation.  But it fits just right now.   Read the rest of this entry »

When The Moon Is In The Seventh House

I tell her act normal and she gives me this.  I’m really so happy with how the dress turned out and I’m glad to have one completely finished project to show for the few hours of work that I put in over the course of the week.  Now I need to spend some time going through the Flikr pool to see what everyone else was up to.  The best news is that after initially telling me that she wasn’t ready to put it on, she asked me where her pretty dress was and put it on!  Then later she told Danielle that her mom made it for her!  I never get tired of hearing that.  Makes all the effort worth it.   Read the rest of this entry »

Day 4 :: I Did It

I didn’t want to but I did.  And you know what?  When I finally got rolling I didn’t want to stop.  I planned to just finish the sleeves and hem but I put the casing in and finished off the neck.  Assuming that I can muster up the energy to trim off the threads and that the weather isn’t total crap again tomorrow Chase can wear it.   Read the rest of this entry »

Tuesday :: Day Two

I’m so ready for this lousy weather to move out.  It can take my lousy attitude with it too.  That would be ok with me.  I was so thankful when I got home today for all of the strangers who were kind to me today.  I think they kept me from falling to pieces.  Ok, I think the only way for me to get it all down is as a list.  So, things I’ve been meaning to tell you… Read the rest of this entry »

Recovering & Kid’s Clothes Week Day 1

I’m still feeling just a little under the weather.  Significantly better but not quite right.  I’m trying not to stress but the ever growing list of things to do has my stomach in knots even though I know that I don’t need the tension on top of this other nonsense that’s going on.  Meanwhile, I promise I’ll catch up with you and have answers to all the burning questions soon.  I even planned meals for the week that I have to tell you about.  Thanks for all the support!

PS Today is day 1 of Kid’s Clothes Week (check out the button in the sidebar… it’s not October Scrap Buster challenge time anymore!)  I have no plan.  I did put in my time tonight.  Easy was my only criteria.  I cut out a simple dress for Chase.  I’m thinking about focussing on fall rather than summer because I think these guys have everything they need for this season.  But who knows.  The weather has been so lousy only time will tell.

I just finished cutting out a new pair of comfy pants for myself.  I don’t typically sew for myself.  I lose interest too quickly in projects that aren’t finished in a day or two.  I have plenty of other sewing projects on my to do list but right now what’s important is getting back into the habit now that bedtime appears to be fairly established.   Read the rest of this entry »

I hope the warm weather comes back because Chase is way ready to wear her new shoes.  She cried nearly all afternoon yesterday because her old shoes are dirty.  Never mind that she’s the one that wore them into the ground.  I’m thrilled that we had a day of cool weather so that running shoes were appropriate and we could get out to the store to pick these up without reliving yesterday’s wailing over having to wear the purple shoes.   Read the rest of this entry »
