Sewing for babies

Since I have my new sewing machine I have wanted to make some blankets and such for baby shower gifts. It seems like I am ALWAYS having one to go to, so it would be great to have some blankets and other things made ahead of time. I made 2 blankets today and I plan to make some other things too. I found this tutorial online for the blankets-I love the edge on the blankets :)

Looking Up

So things just seem to be totally looking up. I am feeling so positive and happy the past week. What a HUGE relief.  It just shows that the decision I made to put Gillian back in school was the right one. We all seem to be happy around here :)

Happy Monday!

Yay! A whole new week and I am excited!  Did some more playing in my art journal today-played with an acrylic ink eyedropper and just drew a random image of a wolf. Lots of random thoughts going on today-just enjoyed the process :)

Free To Be Me

So my daughter is back in school...........and I am in the process of doing my art again. The past couple of days have been amazing, and I am so thrilled to have my much needed "ME" time. I have so much time on my hands now I don't know what to do! But I do know one thing-I need time to nurture myself right now.  I am thrilled to again be my own person-and my daughter can be hers. There is so much I want to do that I don't even know where to begin! Here is my art journal page today, and the pic of myself was printed on inkjet transfer paper and ironed onto muslin. I finished the edges with a zigzag stitch and also stitched some straight stitches on the fabric as well.
