Still humming along.

At least my sewing machine is.  

My last post dealt with cleaning and re-hemming our shower curtains. And while I love sewing, I hate the whole 'hauling the machine and all of its accessories out in the morning only to have to put them away again in the afternoon' let alone dealing with the heat from my iron. But thankfully with this cooler weather the iron hasn't been the issue it is during the summer.

This January a very good friend of mine became a grandmother for the first time.  
And it was a girl!
I realize not everyone wants to see everything I made but I will show you the items Wilbur begged to model.

I didn't have enough fabric left over from the dress and ruffled panties  to make a  matching bonnet so I  ended up getting some eyelet for the brim of this hat.

And since I had so much eyelet left over I made a shabby chic head-band.
Wilbur tries his best to look humble.
Unfortunately, much to Wilbur's distress, his big pitty feet just won't fit into these little shoes so you'll have to settle for this very plain picture.

I've also been working on my own fish-themed wine bag pattern but so far it's been a dismal failure.  Thank God I'm no longer a bartender and I don't have to drink my mistakes or I'd be in big trouble.


  1. How cute, and Wilbur too! Your friend is going to love these for her new grand-baby!

    1. Cheryl, my girl friend informed me the (damaged but thank God I enclosed everything in zip lock bags) package arrived and it will be delivered this weekend. I can't wait for pictures!

  2. Every dog in the marina is now making fun of Wilbur for having to wear that frilly hat! I should report you to the SPCA!!!

    1. Greg, the dogs here at the marina already pick on my innocent baby! And I hate to admit it but Wilbur kinda likes dressing up.
