This is our first grandchild. He is so cute!
We get to watch him while our daughter works. What a blessing.

Refashion - I like this

I refashioned a shirt that I have.

I used a t-shirt that my husband thought was not soft enough.

I cut 3-inch strips from the bottom of the shirt and pieced them together.

You then change the setting on your sewing machine - the stitch length is the longest that you can get and the tention is the highest you can set it.

Then sew close to one side of the strips and it will ruffle for you. (I learned this on someone's blog, but not sure which one.)

Just pin it on your shirt and sew it on and you can have something like this.

From plain to special.

Wish this was for me!

I worked on this tote bag for a friend I work with today.

One of her aunts died and left her some quilt squares.

I used two of the squares and make her a tote bag so she could remember her aunt in a special way.

I put some pockets on the inside to hold any special small items.

I sure hope she likes what I did. I will give it to her next week.

Bed skirts - Bed Skirts - Bed Skirts

I spent all weekend making 2 box bed skirts for my daughter. She is a third year college student living in the second story of an old house with three other girls. She put her bed up on risers so she could store more items in her room. Well she has a roommate so I had to make two bed skirts because they could not find anything long enough.

Not very exciting but they did turn out great. I forgot to take pictures before she took them.

We mothers will do anything for our children.
