Starting Over ...

So I'm all moved in to the new house (not completely unpacked yet).  And I have internet again (haven't had that in two years).  Looking forward to setting up a new sewing room (an actual room, not a dining table or a desk in the living room).

Hope to be back in the swing of things and sewing again in just a few short weeks!

Connectivity ...

Due to Internet issues (I no longer have Internet at home) I haven't been blogging lately. It's just too difficult on my itty bitty phone.  I'm also not able to utilize facebook.

I am posting quite a bit on Instagram though so feel welcome to follow me there. www.instagram.com/sewystuff

I do still follow all your blogs via Bloglovin, I'm just not able to contribute right now.

WIP Wednesday

This week I am working on a set of baby bed bumpers for my soon to be born (in about two weeks) grandson.  He will be my third grandbaby, but my first grandson.  No, he wont be spoiled.  Well, at least not one bit more than the two girls are! 

Three done, three more to go.  Trying to get them done this week so I can take them Saturday when we go to his big sister's second birthday party.  

These are bad nighttime indoor photos.  Hopefully I can get some good ones when they go on his baby bed.

Sweet Baby Girls ...

I've been refashioning or upcycling or being thrifty (or all of the above) lately. 

This is a men's dress shirt refashioned into a toddler dress. 


You cant see in these pictures but I also made her some little matching panties/diaper cover from the sleeves of the shirt.  


This sweet girl is a boon to my sewing ego.  Every time I show her something new I have made for her she immediately starts pulling off her clothes and putting on her new ones.  

She is also learning lots of new words now (she'll be two next week) and thankfully "Gamma" is one of her favorite words! 


And this one is a big kids tshirt refashioned into a toddler top.


So far this one's favorite two words are "doggie" and "cookie".  But she'll be saying "Gamma" before you know it (because this Gamma is working really hard on teaching her!) 

Actually "cookie" might be her word for "Gamma" because every time she visits my office she reaches toward my desk drawer and says "cookie"!  (Yeah, this Gamma keeps a stash!)

Two Down, One to Go ...




I have the shorts done on the third set, and half the top cut out.  I have to go get more red fabric tomorrow.  I hope they still have some!!
