Evelyn's day of wedding shopping

Evelyn got engaged to Patrick on December 27 and today we went to look at dresses for her.  They are not having a traditional big wedding but they are having a dinner party at their favorite restaurant on October 15th.  They are probably going to elope before then and just enjoy the party.  Evelyn doesn't like everyone looking at her and gets anxious about all that stuff so this will be perfect.  We didn't find anything perfect for the party yet so will keep looking.  She looked gorgeous in every single dress she tried on!  Her friends said she would look good in a burlap wedding dress!  They were a lot of fun today too!  Evelyn has a friend who is my age!  Funny how life goes.  

I made some Valentines pillowcases for a teacher I work with this year.  She is a wonderful person and found the man of her dreams this fall!  Maybe the pillowcases will make her have sweet dreams of the futuređź’š!  


Easy mug rugs for winter

My niece's birthday was right after Christmas and we went up to Vermont to visit.  I made her these cute mug rugs as a present.  Kenny got me the embroidery CD for Christmas so I was excited to use it right away.  The entire project is made in the hoop!  (Except for the binding.)

 

We liked them a lot so I made us two red ones last Sunday.
Cute, right?  The Singer sewing machine/vacuum store in Riverhead had the embroidery designs!  

Valentines wall hanging doneđź’š

I am a member of the Shabby Fabrics Vintage Blessings wall hanging club that gets delivered by mail every month.  Of course I really need to have yet another monthly sewing obligation! I was smart about this one and ordered the laser cut version so it's essentially ready to roll as soon as it arrives.  I love all of Shabby Fabrics' kits and fabric collections!  Tonight it's all done and ready for the table.
