It’s Friday! Woo Hoo!

It’s Friday! What makes this day even better? I have the whole day off PLUS Monday. WOO HOO! You know what makes it even better? The house got cleaned yesterday so me and Mr. Fry are enjoying the day in a spotless house. Can I say WOO HOO again!? I started the day working on…

Handy dandy

My name is Meagan and I’m addicted to making fabric flowers. Yes, it’s true. I am addicted to making these little pretties! It’s so easy and they look so nice when they’re finished. While out on a walk yesterday I had a brilliant idea (brilliant!) pop into my head. We recently started a chore chart…

Satin and wreaths

I found time last night to begin my sewing/crafting quest. Yeah! And guess what?  I used goodies I already had at home. Goodies that have been patiently waiting for that perfect project. So what did I make? Some pretty satin flowers… that I saw on Jones Design Company. The satin was a hand-me-down from one…

Sew looking forward to sewing

The weather has turned BEA-U-TI-FUL and it’s really getting me in the crafty, sewing mood. I’m now trying to figure out what I should tackle. These would be fun: I’ve also seen some very sheer, white drapes in blogs I love to read. But of course, now that I’d like to share with other peeps,…

Super Cute Cubbies

I found a cool sewing room storage idea on Pinterest and stole the idea (I wasn’t the only one that thought it was cool…it seems to be my most re-pinned item on Pinterest). I’ve always got my eyes peeled for old boxes or crates. Some seem super expensive, but I’ve run across two that I…

Back in the saddle…or sewing chair

I’m happy to say I’ve finally gotten back into sewing (The crowd roars!). In April, I posted that I got my sewing area set up in the new house. I hate to admit it, but this week is the first time I actually started any projects. Every time I would go downstairs that darn machine…

Champagne & fabric

Good news! Momma’s got her sewing machine back out. WOO HOO!! Time to celebrate. Bring out the champagne and fabric! Trying to decide what my first project should be. I’ve got lots of fabric to make dress-up clothes (poor niece A. didn’t get those for her birthday), sister-in-law asked for a purse and I want…

It’s called a foot quilt!

Awhile ago I asked my Facebook buddies if they had any thoughts on how to make those things that go on the foot of beds above the comforter. I see them a lot in hotels. I remembered seeing a pattern for one somewhere, but then couldn’t find it. I made some time this evening to…

Moving onto circles

Got a birthday coming up next weekend for our niece’s birthday who’s going to turn four. I’m running in my head some ideas for some pretty, frilly dress-up skirts. I found a couple ideas out there that say to cut the fabric on the bias…and in a circle…that sounds hard! Wish me luck!

Bed pockets rock!

Christmas vacation is almost over! Where did the time go!? The goos have two more days at home before school starts and we all get back into a routine. We’ve got big plans for today that include an afternoon at the ice rink. Hope none of us break anything too important. I’ve made three bed…
