Long time no see...


Wow. I cannot believe how fast time goes by. I have been so busy sewing and shopping for school supplies that I have not really done much else. As you can see, even my poor blog has been neglected! This is a picture of me, my husband Terry and our youngest daughter Lorelai at the zoo in Chicago. I just got some yummy new fabrics called Barefoot Roses from a really cool fabric store Flapper Girl Fabrics
I cannot wait to play with these and make some pretty stuff! I already have some ideas in my head for what to do with these. I am also in the process of cleaning out my fabric stash. Ahhh, out with the old and in with the new. Perhaps I will list some on Etsy and also give some away on freecycle. I am also trying to get some stuff made for a Fall craft show that I am going to be in! I am so excited about that. It will be my first ever and as well as being excited, I am also super nervous. I have found some great advice online so i am doing my homework to try and be as ready as possible and although I am new at this, I want to appear as though I am an old pro. If anyone has any advice on set ups and inexpensive equipment to use for the show, please share! That is one area that I am having trouble with. I will be bringing purses, tutus, some skirts and dresses, and maybe some headbands and other small items. I am pairing up with my partner in crime Theresa from TRS Designs So at least I will not be alone.
