Shawnee's Secret Santa

I am a young creative minded mother of boy/girl twins. When we decided to start a family, twins were never in the mix. They have proven to be a blessing and joy and it is a wonder to watch them grow and take in the world around them. I currently work outside the home full-time and find that working along with raising an active (read= exhausting)little family of 6 (can't forget the doggies)can be a bit of a challenge. I decided to purchase a sewing machine to give my creative side a much needed boost. Over the past 6 months I have been teaching myself to sew through my own trial and error and reading of blogs and books. It seems that I have a knack for this sewing thing as I have taken to it like a fish to water. I look forward to sharing with you a little on my life and crafting projects as things take shape!

Making myself something pretty

Last night I decided to dig into my stash and make myself a dress from a pattern I found on "You Can Make This" website. I have some fabric I received from a friend that I love and I have been kicking around the idea of making myself some clothes. The patterns on that website are from people who make them and I find them the easiest and highly detailed patterns around. I leave for Vegas tomorrow so let's see if I can get this sewn up by then. When I told the hubby what I was doing he just chuckled in disbelief. Grrrr...
Of course I do this while other project sit waiting. As usual. I finally finished quilting the quilt. It's on to binding. Ran into a minor problem with the photo I transfered. It didn't take so it started to peel. So I decided to applique and hand embroider the baby's name over the offending hiccup. I hope the crisis is avoided but I am bummed. Pictures to follow.
