Sewing...what a concept, huh?!!

                           Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD   Psalms 31:24

I FINALLY sewed, I have the fabric (insert fabric hoarder), I have the BEST machine (Betty), thread, a list of tutorials and patterns to try out, BUT the lack of time, or putting my sewing for me, ahead of other things is why I haven't...
some things that have been keeping me busy....I can't really complain because watching my son run his cross country races and riding horses are also at the top of my favorite things to do :)



the recent promp from my bestest buddy Rebecca, has been trying to convince  (force lol)  me do a craft fair, which would be a first for me (yikes!) when she told me about the craft fair at her church, I didn't think I could do it since Zachs cross country team has a meet that day...well of course, 1 week ago...I found out the meet was not going to happen that day...(insert grrrrrr!) I could have had an extra 3 weeks to be sewing my heart out! well I figured I will see what happens with my sewing this week...how much I get done will determine if I do the craft fair...I really don't think I will be able to do it (it's THIS Saturday!) I only have a few things sewn so far, and I don't want to show up with not enough, BUT of course Jim had to go out of town for 3 days so maybe I can sew all day and all night?!! we will see what happens :)



I LOVE this apron, (this is not what I will be selling at the craft fair, mainly totes, zippered pouches) , but ever since I saw this free tutorial on One More Moore's blog, at least a year ago, if not longer, I have had it on my list of to do's, go check hers out, it's so cute! I am in love with the fabric I used also, its October Afternoon, Farm Fresh, since my first craft love was scrapbooking, I LOVE that a few of the scrapbook companies are making fabrics in the lines of some of their papers :) how clever are they?!!

I am linking up to Life Made Lovely, Sew Chatty, The Girl Creative and Quilt Story, join in!
