So I’ve been busy….

SEWING!  Yep, I sew too.  That’s actually something I love to do, just haven’t in a while.  Especially since it’s summer and it’s not that transportable.  I’ve made many things.  Here are a few from back in the day….you know, before knitting.

Santa Claus

I made this full blown Santa suit from red velvet.  What an experience.

Giggles

When my girls were younger, we used to go all out for Halloween.  The scary music, strobe lights, fog machine, we would hook up a microphone that altered your voice through the speakers and this scary clown would come out and scare you.  We had a table with a huge bowl of candy….the good stuff, you know…chocolate!  And it was on a table with a table cloth on it and when you walked up to get candy from one of the people we had helping us, the leaf blower would blow the table cloth out and scare you too.  You definately earned your candy at our house.  LOL!  Great times!!!

Wonder Woman

And this is my sister.  She wanted to be wonder woman.  So in less than 2 hours behind the sewing machine (yes, I know…not much to the dang thing) this is what she got.

There are a few others I have made for my girls.  But I’ll have to dig those pics up and scan them in.  Little Red Riding Hood, Minnie Mouse, Poodle skirt…and probably a few others I just can’t recall at the moment.

But here is what I’ve been working on lately…

That’s right, project bags.  I might look into my own little etsy shop.  Just depends on how people like them.  Let me know what you think.  Here’s another one…

Perfect for the smaller, on the go projects.  See, Sheldon the turtle, his yarn, the pattern page and row counter all fit with plenty of room to spare.

Sorry for all the pics.  It’s been a while since I’ve had the camera out.  Well, I need to get to bed…I’m taking the girls school clothes shopping tomorrow.  YAY!

It’s been a while…

So here it is.  August already and I have yet again left over a month out of my blog life.  Well let me catch you up a bit.  Some may have already been stated and the rest may be boring to you.  But, it’s my blog and I owe myself this much at least.

Let’s see….where to begin.  I left my part time job at Heavenly Creations.  Life got busy and kids were busy so I needed time to be with them.  I am still gainfully employed at my full time job and am thankful everyday for that.  I still live in the same place and am still searching for a house.  The school levy didn’t pass, so I’ll be looking in other districts.  I am very sour about this topic and will save that one for another day….NUFF SAID!  I am still knitting and update my ravelry as much as I can.  On the needles now: Aeolian Shawl ( I call it the alien…lol) and my mitered square blanket.  I have come to accept the fact that the blanket is a life long project.  I knit a square here and there and for the first time ever, have more than one thing on the needles at one time.  That was very hard for me to do.  I’m a faithful, one project at a time knitter.  But I think I’ve broken that rule.

I still workout on a regular basis and have realized just how good it feels after you are done.  I never would have thought that going to the gym and working out would give you more energy, but it does.  I think once the time change happens this fall, I will start going in the morning before work.  I’ve went a few times in the morning and it’s nice.  Quiet, and not to busy.  Just the way I like it 🙂

Okay, now I have to get back to work.  I just wanted to update real quick.  I will have some pics of my shawl here soon.  It’s awesome!  Can’t wait to share it with you.

I promise to try to blog more often.  Just sometimes life gets in the way.

C-ya!  Dreem
