YaY Quilt Shop!

Okay so you know how i talked about polka Doted fabric in my last post.? Well i did venture out to the Quilt shop and they had some yellow fabric with red polka dots on it by Moda. Not the exact same as the Riley Blakes but close enough and what is even better i didn't have to order it and wait for it to come in the mail to decide if it would work or not.. Yay so happy and I also picked up a few holiday fabrics too I really like the one with different colored bats all over it! :O)


I have got to get to work on my pillow now that i have the polka dot fabric!. I will share with you in the next post  what i have come up  so far..

Do great things!

Polka Dot Craziness!

I've spent the day looking for the right piece of fabric online to use for my new pillow that i am working on.  What I am wanting is yellow with red dots, not to big of dots and not to small of dots not to bright of a yellow either.. The fabric i had in the back of my mind i seen months ago  online is sold out it's by Riley Blake.  :O(  I did find several that are similar to the RB one.   They are from , Etsy and Allegro fabrics , Okay so my issues with these choices are -to big of dots, not the right yellow, or to small of dots and flannel not cotton.. The closes one to the Riley Blake is made out of flannel. I am going to go to our local Quilt shop tomorrow to see if they have anything.. If not i will order the one from Allegro's. and maybe I think it would be best to get both to see them in person. I think buying fabric online sometimes is not always the best idea unless you have seen it in person..

Have a fun and blessed weekend!

Saltbox House Pillow

Hello guys how you doing?
 I wanted to pop on and share my Saltbox house pillow I made, I am also going to make other styles  soon too.  I am going to work on making chimneys for the next ones, i think that will add a nice homey touch to them.

This morning we went to Joanns to purchase sock yarn I am going to crochet wreaths for the doors and maybe windows on the next  house pillows I make and i think i will crochet trim going around the windows too, who know what i will come up with or end up doing :O)? We also stopped in Hobby Lobby to grab some beads  (they were on sale half off) to decorate the wreaths with. While we were in HL of course i needed a new container to put all my new beads in so i used my 40% to buy a container to store them in. I love it..

I have this idea to make a new pillow it will be a while though, I am going to take my time and do a lot of research before i make it. I want it to turn out just right.. :O) I will share the process as i get going on it..

Until next time guys be good!

Fabric and chit~chat.

Last week was the most busiest week ever. I have been shopping for fabric,yarn and back to school cloths for Hailey. Still not even finished yet. She doesn't start school till the end of August.

I want to get some house cleaning in today and i haven't exercised in a long time. I just kind of put it on the back burner. I can feel a difference and i don't like it. So that means i need to get back into the routine of it. I know once Hailey goes back to school and it all settles down around here, I can get back to my routine. In the summer it's hard to keep a routine you know, well at least for me..

I went to Joanns on Saturday and picked up some Halloween fabric. The Christmas selection they have right now in store isn't the greatest of choices i think. So i just grabbed Halloween fabric.

Not sure what i'll make this week? I want to work on so many things but I'm not really selling  much of anything so my finished items pile is taking over my craft room. :O)  That's okay with me though i will just find more places to stash everything heehee, so i can keep on crafting and doing what i love..

This coming week will get a little heck-tick Hailey is going to watch Kayla's dog and guinea pig for a week while she and her hubby go to California.  That will be nice huh..

Stay on course and everything will work out.

Where Have I been?

Where have I been? I have been doing nothing but crocheting for the last four days.. Since I am a beginner at this new found hobby it takes me a while to turn stuff out.. But it's so much fun an I know with practice i will get faster

. I have missed blogging I haven't blogged since i think last Thursday?  It's nice to get on here and just empty out some of my thoughts ;)

Here is what i have been working on- bowl filler pillows ...

 I Got them all listed on my ebay  what crazy work that all is.. But if people buy from me it will all be worth it.. :O)

Hope you like them.

Tomorrow i am taking a break from crafting ,I think i will do a coconut oil treatment to my hair, soak my feet  and paint my nails OH I am  just going to  pamper myself i guess for the day.. That sounds so nice..

Get up and have a pamper day for yourself!

Fall / Halloween Potholders

 I finished all my potholders / hot pads! I think i did a pretty good job on them! I'm going to make more of the  candy corn hot pads to see if i can get the candy corns to be just a little sweeter! :O)

Hope people on etsy and ebay like them enough to buy them! I can hope right?..

Now for the rest of my day i think i will look through my Mollie Makes magazines for inspiration.. I think i earned it.. :O)

Tomorrow is my hubby's 49th b-day  Hailey and I  are going to go shopping tomorrow for his dessert and dinner goodies.. I hope to get in my Friday Faves too..

Here is a look at my potholders/hot pads..

Aren't they so much fun..  Not bad for a beginner huh,?  :O)  I'm open to constructive criticism... There is always room for improve..

I am so thankful for so many blessings, how about you?

Went as planned!

This  morning i had some time to myself to crochet, I was able to crochet two potholders. :O) YaY ME!  Youngest didn't get up till after 12:00 this afternoon then she grabbed lunch and watched Days Of Our Lives , so while she was doing that i worked on my crocheting. Then she went to a friends for a while and i was able to finish two of them! Today was great!

Tomorrow I'm going to try to make the Jack-O-Lantern potholders. To me crocheting is challenging, it's so much harder for me that sewing is.. But i am going to stick with it because i do love it so!

I hope your Wednesday went as good as mine did.. Talk to you all tomorrow!!!

make sure to brighten someones day..
