Sping Flowers????

I actually can't believe I am posting this! My eyes are so tired of the computer by the time I get home at night the last thing I want to do is look at a computer screen! Not much craftiness or sewing going on here, but spurred on by Renee at Goosie Girl's
I made some biodegradable pots. Not only did her post remind me to start my seeds, I actually got it done. It was a close call though, I made eight of the origami pots and then went to get my potting soil. Not much there folks!

But I did remember the next morning to stop at Home Depot the next morning and get some more. (I really hate when I can't complete a project in one night!)

These are what I planted, Jessie wanted the sunflowers.

Renee suggested I use clothes pins to hold them open while I filled them with potting soil.

I only got two done with the potting soil I had. But my stop a home depot made me fill the others.

I actually started this post about a week ago, so I now have sprouts!!!!! I am really excited!
I love flowers!

Gotta go water my seedling's now! I love my seedling tray! It was a purchase at Kroger at 90% off after the holidays!

Be back soon!

No Crafting or Sewing

Working seven days a week doesn't allow for a lot of crafting or sewing time! I did manage to cut some fabric for pillows for my sister Tami. Hopefully I will be able to get 2 of them finished this weekend!

I thought I would show you a picture of a house that I stalk! I purposely go around the block on my way to work just to see this house. Not everyday, I am not that weird, just maybe once a week. This house is in an older neighborhood and a lot of the homes are being updated. There are much grander homes in this neighborhood but this one makes me happy! I have watched the owners bring this house back from ugly to wonderful!

I just love the leaded glass windows this house has!

I love the green color of the house with the bright white trim!

I love the white wicker furniture on the porch! They even have a white wicker SWING!!!

I wish I could see what they have done to the inside!

I don't know what they have planned for the bricks in the front yard. I keep driving by to see if they have done anything with them yet. I wish they would get their butts in gear! Don't they know I am waiting with baited breath???

Be back soon!

Super Quick Wardrobe Refashion

I had this skirt that was too long, almost to the floor long.

It's hard to see the pattern of the skirt but it has a black background with red and cream stripes running through it.

I chopped it off and added red bias tape to the bottom.

I will be wearing this to work tomorrow with a white blouse, red sweater, black tights and black boots. Super Quick!! I love it!

Be back soon!
