What I have been up to.....

Well the play "Honk" is over and I thought I would show you some of the things that were made for the play. My friend Martha and I made about 9 of these mop caps in different shades of gray.

This is only half of them. Remember this is the week Tax Season ended. Time was nowhere!!! I didn't even have time to change out my thread. It wasn't noticeable though!

Here is Jessie's T-Shirt she made and wore to school to help promote the play.

For the ducks, I purchased yellow t-shirts and made orange visors. I had my friend's daughter make some barrettes with yellow feathers sticking up. I also purchased some yellow shorts for when the ducks were young and made three yellow skirts for when the ducks were older. These skirts were made Thursday - April 15th after I got home at 9:30. The 1st showing of the play was on Friday!

They were a little long on the girls, but that was better than too short!

Jessie and I attended a shower for my soon to be daughter in law. She is engaged to Son #1.

We also went to our granddaughter's 13th birthday party. No pictures, I rushed from the shower to the birthday party! I wish I had one!

Be back soon!

A Little Bit Done and Thrifting

I have been doing a little bit here and a little bit there, but not much. I have been wanting to make some new bar stool covers. So I took a half hour and tested out my pattern.

Not bad, but I think it needs more pleats! I will add more pleats!

I just used some scrap fabric I had to test with. I also cut a circle the same size as the stool out of a memory foam mattress pad. It is definitely comfy and much better than the store bought lumpy ones that were on there! I just need to decide what kind of fabric I want to use.

My seeds are sprouting and doing really well!

My red flowers!

My daisies!

I did cheat and use a couple of peat pots I had in the basement. What can I say..........I was tired and wanted to finish the job of getting them planted.

I did a little thrifting last week and found this great mirror for my sewing room! I just needed to shabby it up some!

There this is so much better!

I just need to get it hung up to add to my collection on the sewing room walls!

Be back soon!
