Checking in...

Hello everyone. I'm just checking in. I just found out that our apartment is almost ready and we will be moving in on Monday. Yay! It got new paint, carpet and tile. I'm so excited. I hope everything fits, as we are moving from a 5 bedroom house to a 3 bedroom apartment. Most of you know that we moved from Illinois to Texas over spring break. The husband and I decided on a divorce, I guess there was no other way. This is a new adventure for us. I was born in Houston but haven't been home in 15 years. We love it. I will return to regular blogging next week. In other news I lost my camera and really have no way of replacing it any time soon, as my income right now consist of child support, and trust me that's not enough. So cell pictures, I guess. One last thing...there will be a giveaway soon for lots of lovely fabric. ~Maranda

Getting back

First a big thanks to my sewing machine for not dying on me.

I have never done the maintenance and when I got it out last night, it wouldnt stitch the stitches right. Took it apart and was surprised to see this. There was alot more lint under the bobbin. Note to self: this is why maintenance is important.

Something new happened in our house yesterday. JJ got his 1st loose tooth. So I sewed this for him.

Very easy project. I was done right at 30mins. I patched worked the front, but its 2 9in. squares, with a 3 1/2 square for the pocket if you are interested in making your own.

I will leave you with the beautiful orchids my kids brought for me. I have such sweet kids.

Happy Sewing,
