Even though I’ve been busy, I don’t have much sewing to show this week.
I used an online tutorial to make a pillowcase dress for Annabelle. Her mom bought her one recently that has become one of her favorite dresses. I hemmed it last night and will wait for a photo to see if it’s anywhere close to fitting her. The good thing about these dresses is that they are totally adjustable.
We hung curtains in the dining room! We’ve been in our house for five years and it was about time. I love the way they look in here. I saw these particular curtains on an Instagram friend’s post and she told me they were from Target. I quickly found them online and they were here within 3-4 days. I love online shopping!
Hubby and I have really enjoyed the birds, squirrels, and neighborhood cats this year. There’s a lot that goes on outside, even when we aren’t looking! We are making an effort to watch them more. Notice the butterfly reflector decals on my glass door. The hummingbirds kept flying and bumping into the door, so these were added for their safety. I hope they work!
I started picking through my fabric scraps last night to make something red white and blue. I’ve seen so many cute Americana displays online that include mini patriotic quilts. I’m hoping to try out one of my “new to me” sewing machines this week with that project. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Have a safe Memorial Day and always remember those who died so that we can live free!!
