Trying to sew again

A work in progress and maybe if I blog about it I will finish it! I don't have a very good reputation at finishing things around here, very sad I know. Sheesh, I can't even keep up with blog posts. This pillow is going to be a birthday gift to my very special cousin. I know she'll love it. We love vintage photos and anything that includes them. I was inspired to make this when we saw these kinds of beautiful pillows when we were out shopping last month. I immediately said "I can make that"! Of course I can, it just takes me forever. It's a bit of a tackle in gathering the tuille. If anyone has any tips, tricks or how-to's, please let me know! I've tried different ways; gathering by machine, by hand and just pinning it in place, ugh.

See you in a few days with a finished pillow!

Busy summer!

Again, I'm late at blogging. I can't seem to catch up with all the other stuff going on in my life. This week I'm on vacation, but no, not going anywhere, just taking time to relax around the house and staying local . . . . and maybe make something exciting! Anyway, here is a snapshot of cards I made at a workshop I went to yesterday. I love making cards!

Try to catch up later, thanks for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Back

and no longer a Stampin' UP! demonstrator. It's a good thing, as much as I like sharing papercrafting and products, I found it hard ...
