2 bags done...

I had a busy weekend... a baby shower, the gym and 2 birthday bags to sew. I finished Sophie and Jamie's totes this weekend. Sophie's bag is sparkly with butterflies and Jamie's has pirates. They are both lined and have straps and I am very proud of myself! I am loving sewing! I also finished 3 skirts, but I haven't been able to get pictures yet, so hopefully I can show them to you next week. I have also been working on a coupleof purses, so maybe I will have them to show you too!

2 cute bags at my house and I can't wait to make more!

I was really busy in the kitchen after I posted my blog last week. I had taken a cooking class with my mom to make pierogies. The instructor sent the remaining potato filling home with me, so I ended up making another 4 dozen pierogies on Wednesday afternoon.   I have 2 more bags in my freezer now that are twice as full!

Have a great weekend. Mom and I will be in the basement working on scrapbooks

Here Goes..... Nothing??

Well, here goes. I think I will give this blog thing a shot. I have been inspired by so many blogs out "there". A few friends, a few with similar interests that I really enjoy reading. So I hope to inspire someone, or at least give them an idea for dinner. Please bear with me while I figure out this site and how blogging works, linking information, and getting everything in order. It might take me a while to get everything set up how I want it!

I of course will be including recipes and links to several on the web. Also, I will be doing some crafting since I have time on my hands right now. I have really started to love sewing, and my wonderful husband surprised me with a new sewing machine last week. Would you like to meet her?

Quite a nice upgrade from this, don't you think?  Yep, I sure do!
Along with sewing, I have been cross-stitching and of course knitting as always. I made my mom 2 breadcloths for her birthday and lined them with a pretty yellow basketweave fabric. She was pretty excited! Oh, and I am selling them for housewarming gifts, shower and wedding gifts and holiday/birthday presents if anyone is interested... I have a good selection of patterns.

I will be adding more soon. My goal is to post at least 1 blog a week to start, more if I get a lot done and have pics to share. See you soon!
