Sewing room update

Okay will last week I posted about loseing my sewing room. Well it happened I gave in and let my DD have her room back. I am now in my utility room where I originally started out. Oh what a mess we have created with this whole move. Ugh.......there was just not enough time this weekend to get it all done and so my house looks like we just moved in, there are boxes and bags and laundry everywhere, most of it is in my dining room cause it is my sewing stuff and I am having to re organize it all so I can fit it back into the small room I have been sentenced to.
I seriously need to go through my girls clothes they have way to much laundry that none of them keep up with and complain about it when they do have to wash. Guess I don't help with the hords of clothing when I continue to sew for them and add to the chaos. :)
I have been going home every day after work and working in the house for atleast an hour or so depending on how hungry my crew is when we get home and how early dh gets home to cook for everyone, lol, yes he has been the cook and bottle washer for awhile now he is usually home before me and so he just starts supper and so I just let him, lol. :P
I will post pictures of my new/old sewing space as soon as I can see it. lol.........................

What a fun weekend

Just wanted to share with all of you how wonderful weekend we had. My BFF and her kids and fiance came down for the Jr rodeo in our town. Her son Gage is a bull rider and a handsome one at that:) Our kids have grown up together, even though we have not always lived close to each other we have always stayed closely in touch.

It was so crazy seeing Katie and Gage as teenagers, they are such awsome kids with huge personalities. Funny how the years pass.

Our kids had such fun together and I think we had even

I just love this gal......Go Katrina!
And have a looky at my whacky cowboy(not) husband:)
I love you Katrina your are truely my BFF and can be myself around you and apparntley much more:P

Give Away and other blabbings

Just wanted to share with all of you these cute little skirts and the pretty little girl wearing them oh and lets not forget the awsome photographer. Stop by this blog and leave her a comment for a chance at winning one of these sweet little skirts.

As you all know I am into making skirts for my girls lately. I know I have promised pictures but unfortunitley my camera was borrowed and was just returned this past weekend, ugh.......... I do plan on taking some pictures of the girls Easter outfits and another skirt I have finished. I have not been doing much sewing outside of that, I still need to finish the top of mine that I started. One reason for my lack of sewing is a messy sewing room and I am the type that cannot be productive in such clutterdness(is that even a word?) and the room was my 11yo dd's room and she is now begging for it back even though it was her decision to move in with our youngest dd. I have not decided if I am going to give in to her yet, 1. is she is the one who begged to be in the room with her sister which was alot of re-arranging and moving of furniture, which if we move her back in her old room we will have to start that process all over. 2. I don't want to have to lose my space I would have to go back to the utility room where we originally planned would be my hobby room but since then I have accumulated lots and lots more stuff(mainly fabic) and I am not sure where I would put it all. I will take a picture of this area and all the stuff I need to make fit in there and see what, if any, ideas my blogger buddies come up with. Until then pray that my daughter changes her mind or I get the guts to put my foot down with her and say NO!

The weekend has come to an end

Man just when the fun begins the weekend ends. What is up with that? The week days drag by and the weekends fly by.

I did get a little sewing done this weekend, didn't sew as much as I wanted due to total laziness but did hit needle to thread which is more than I have done in awhile. So far this pattern is very easy but not to sure about the fabric I have chosen. It is a very thin knit fabric with a ton of stretch, I am still crossing my fingers that it comes out ok because I love the pattern on this material. Here is the pattern I am using.

It is Simplicity 3790. I just love this pattern and am very hopeful that I can finish it this week.

After this project I am going to start my girls Easter skirts, actually I may have to sit this one on the back burner and start the skirts right away seeing that Easter is this coming weekend. I will post pictures of the fabric I am using for the patterns above as well as fabric that I plan on using for the Easter outfits. Need to get my camera batteries charged cause I have tons of patterns I have purchased over the last couple of weeks as well as some wonderful fabric that I must show off.

Tomorrow it is back to the drawing board. Hope you all have a great week.

Hugs, Kathy
