My Next Project(s)

This week I will try to make a whole outfit, (Try being the key word here...)

 First will be a new top!

Got this pattern off of Pinterest of course. I love the Butterfly tops. They are so cute.

Then I shall make a Wrap Skirt...

This too came off of Pinterest.

 I am still working on the dress I made from this pattern...

It made a nice LONG dress. I think I might wear it to a friends wedding in June. :) Or for our One Year Anniversary Picnic in June.

 If I have time and the supplies, I may make a pair of these pants...

A friend of mine showed me this picture and asked if there was a way to make them... I said I would try. Doesn't look too hard. I have never made pants before so I will get a simple sweat/pj pants pattern form the store and go from there. The waist looks like a wide bias tape (I know how to make that) and the legs have 1/4" or smaller elastic in them. Then make a draw string to keep them up and TaDa!!! :)

 I will try my best! :)

 Til Next time,

When Life Gives You Lemons...

 You make do... (me)

I found this little picture today, and it just kind of made my day.

Pinterest Photo
I have been trying to teach myself to sew my own clothes. I am finding lots of good ideas and patterns from other blogs on Pinterest and I'm just trying my hand at everything. I really want to make more skirt and dresses, but Now I really would like to try to maybe make some pants and tops too.

 My Darling and I are trying to save as much money as we can, so that's why I'm trying to make my own clothes. I'm mending and sewing and knitting and crocheting like crazy! I'm also thinking about making and selling some of my home made Coffee Sleeves at a store in my hometown where my Momma sells her soap and other crafts. I just need to get some made up and e-mail the stores owner. :)

 Not a whole lot has been going on in my life as far as exciting or life changing. The weather has been in the low to mid 70's this week. Yesterday I could have guessed it to be in the 80's it was so hot. And I was in a skirt (nice and flowy and knee length) and a tank top with a little shoulder cover and sandals. I was very warm by the time I got to work. Today how ever, it's raining and chilly. But it's better than snow I guess.

 This past weekend I got to go visit with my family. My little sister was sick over Easter, so it was nice to see her up and about and cleaning the cow pin. ;)
 This weekend I'm going back to help in the garden and just relax.

 I haven't been cooking much, but today I think I'll make some fish with some stir fried vegetables and a cup cake or two for dessert.

Rachel Ray Tilapia - 1 cup grated parmasean, 2 tsp paprika, 1 tsp lemon pepper / garlic salt, 1 Tbs parsley, dash red pepper flakes Coat fish with olive oil and cover in cheese mixture, bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes until fish is white in middle

Cup Cakes For Two- for when you just don't need a bunch of sweets laying around - 1 egg white, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 cup flour 1/4 heaped teaspoon baking powder, pinch of salt, 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
I think this will be a very good lunch to have while watching a movie and crocheting.

 Hope you are having a wonderful day whom ever you are.

Many Blessings,

A Little Bit of Sun, and Hope

 I remember planting bulbs with my momma one year. I remember her telling me that even when there is snow on the ground these flowers will bloom and grow and give us hope for spring.
 This is the flower I look forward to seeing Every Spring. The bulbs are so close to the surface, that as soon as the Sun gets the least bit warmer, and like clock work it's mid March every year!, They pop their little heads out of the snow, giving us hope for a Beautiful Spring! ~ The Crocus 

Many Blessings,

Easter Weekend....

 So, My Easter Weekend started on Friday.
My Darling and I went to his moms house for dinner. It was a very good dinner and I had a blast playing with my (New) Cousins Baby Girl. She is soooo cute! I can't wait to have my own little ankle bitters.

Also, On Saturday, I went to my Best Friends (all of my friends are my best friends btw!) Wedding Shower! It was fantastic. We talked, ate way too much chocolate, and just had fun. I can't wait for the wedding.

 Then Saturday night My Darling and I went to one of his friends house and had a great dinner, and some nice drinks and played mario cart into the wee hours of the morning.

 Easter Sunday, we woke up at 8:00 am to get ready for the 9:00 am Church service then get everything ready to head out to my grandmas for Easter Lunch. My dad, older sister and her family came over as well. Momma and little sister were home sick.

 For their Easter Baskets from their Aunt, I gave my niece and nephew a homemade gift. My niece got a skirt,

 She was very happy about it and thought it was so darn cute.

 And my nephew got a tie,

He looked Adorable in it. I can't wait to make more!

We also had a Surprise Birthday Party for My Grandpa Jack (69 But is so active and  rotten at times. I love him so much)

My nephew sharing with his grandma.

"Whats in Your basket Sissy?"

They romped for so long I was getting tired!

Busy and her new hair cut and missing teeth.

His Tie turned out so cute! And he kept it on almost all day! :)

 Today is My Mommas Birthday. I'm so very thankful she is my mommy. I couldn't have asked for a better mom. She has taught me so much and is still teaching me. I can't wait to see her on days I visit, and miss her so much when I'm away. But I can always feel her love, and I always think of her and pray for her. I love my momma, and I'm so very thankful she is my mom!

 It's Monday morning, and I'm sitting here drinking my coffee and sitting in the sunshine ready for spring and warm weather. I'm ready to start planting a vegetable and herb garden, and getting things made and put away for Christmas, I really want to get a head start on it this year so I can save some time and money. And I'm just ready to go outside with out a coat and boots. I just want to say, "I'm going for a walk!" and just walk right out the door, no coat, no boots and making sure I'm layered up enough. Just shorts or skirt and a tee shirt and flip flops. Warm Spring just can't get here fast enough.

 But I guess for now, I'll just sit here, drink my coffee and wait.

Many Blessings to you.
