I made a pillow! I just started sewing again. I haven't sewn anything since being a teenager, and even then it was very basic. Sewing is a skill I've wanted to pick up for a long time now. The hardest part about started something new is starting. So after about 40 minutes of getting it set up and winding some bobbins, I was ready. I started small with something simple and something I remembered how to do: a pillow. It's not perfect, but even this one project was a learning experience. Since then, I've mended my favorite skirt, and made some jean shorts and capris.  I have the tools. Now to practice them! Let the sewing begin!

Movies and Clothes

Found some random stuff at Good Will. A pretty floral skirt, a nice button up, a Big Lebowski philosophy book (who'd get rid of that?), and Space Odyssey beta tapes!    Yep, beta tapes!  I'm thinking the skirt and shirt might be cute together... What do you think? Stripes and floral? Too crazy or crazy enough to work?

Fresh Cut Flowers

I did it! I grew flowers! Don't they look lovely by our wedding memorabilia?

Our Wild Home

We've encountered a lot of wildlife since moving to "the country". We love it. Many deer, one turtle, a cat, a possum (not pictured), and numerous others!

Scrapbook Framing

I recently learned that JoAnn Fabrics is my everything. Here is a scrapbook-frame I made with the inspiration I found there. Pictured is my late Grandma Johnson. Even though I was young her cooking and hospitality made an impression on me.
