Flower child

It has been a long week! Between packing up, moving, and keeping up with work stuff, I have had to put sewing on the back burner for a bit.

I refuse to break one of my resolutions so today I decided to make a little fabric flower. I know it isn't anything to impress but I like it just as much. I have visions of flower hairpins and belts to come!

Twinkle Sews!

I got this book with a Barnes and Noble gift card I got from my secret Santa (thanks Carlos)...

I am both excited and nervous about the projects in it. There are some that look super easy and some that have a lot of detail but overall the designs are chic and unique! Wish me luck ^.^

Trial and Error...

Woo hoo! I actually finished a project in a week. Though it is far from perfect I am super happy with it! And aside from having to pull really hard over my chest area to put it is wearable. I was trying to make a elastic tube top dress, but instead of cutting one long piece of fabric and inserting the elastic I cut a top and bottom ! AHHH! But now I know and the next time I make this dress it can only get better....I HOPE!

New Years Resolutions!!!

It's a new year and time for a fresh start. I know I am a little late on this but I did not have a computer for 2 weeks...ugh! This year I hope to be more productive and independent. With that said these are my New Year's Resolutions:

  1. Work on one sewing project a week.- I've noticed I am more of a dreamer than a do-er, and I am ready to make that switch over to do-er!
  2. Stay active-Most nights you could find me sitting on my couch being a lazy ass...not anymore
  3. Update blog twice a week- this is the only one that scares me a bit. I'm not tech savvy at all. I am the person who leaves pictures on her camera for months. So this goal will definitely give me that extra push (hopefully...)
Those are my top 3 resolutions! Happy New Year!

Year of the Tiger! I have been searching for the perfect tiger rug I think this is the year!
