Future pattern for sale in the works.
We’ve had our driveway blocked for about 2 months. January 8th to be precise; the water main broke sending a river down the road. With no warning, the cavalry arrived to patch it up on Wednesday.
Another road taken down the Katy Trail with one of my daughters and husband. At least I didn’t receive bunny ears (eyes rolling).
Some more of our walk on the scenic Katy Trail.
Another Road Taken with my neice to my favorite section of any store – The Fabric Section! Let me just say this is a gigantic step for the next generation. Fabric purchasing and selection is an unknown territory for many of them. I’m beaming here if you can’t tell!
And guess what?! She sews! Zach you have a good catch…. but I’m sure you know that 🙂
Back to the subject at hand.
Our 3-generation project has begun. Above are the fabric choices she made, the blocks that she and my mother cut out, and the sample arrangement suggestions I sent to her via cell phone. We’re making a special something to use in her July 1 wedding. Can’t tell you what we’re using this for yet, but I can tell you she chose view #2. I am in total agreement.
Have a Wonderful Rest of Your Sunday!!
I opened my FaceBook messenger one morning to see a picture and a little request for the item below.
But I don’t think it was in the right color. So still creating some. Unfortunately they are in a pile next to the sewing machine. Time has not been a friend the last couple weeks. But I did a test run on the one above as you can see and it passed my scrutiny as well as the family’s. I even created a little ‘love’ for my grad student daughter.
As time permits, more will be made. Until then I’ll leave you with a little list of uses for this newfound creation.
Have a wonderful Sunday!!
In the spotlight this Sunday is my one and only…..
He drew my name in our family gift exchange and a little bird apparently told him I needed to go shopping. And shopping I did!
Just lookie at what I came up with Aaron!
Taking time this Sunday Sampler to say Thank You for your help in resuscitating my fabric and yarn stash. #NeverEnoughSuppliesInTheSewingRoom
Not everyone can say they have a sister named Barbie. I can and she definitely scored on Christmas Day with being the “Hostess Superlative” for our family get-together.
But the Sunday Sampler ‘Barbie Score’ has another twist.
This gem came in the mail from the hubster! Let me explain to you how rare it is lately to find Ken doll clothes patterns. Barbie rules the roost without a doubt. My dilemma is compounded in a daycare with 1 girl versus 7 boys. When it’s time for my Miss Emmi to play with the dolls, the boys are surprisingly eager to join along, provided there are male counterparts.And there are only so many clothes for those ‘Ken’ dolls. Mainly just shorts. And the boys are a bit indignant on this subject. So part of my time off for Christmas break is preparing to make some of these poor neglected AquaMen/Spidermen/Kenmen their own line of clothing. Wish me luck!
Happy New Year Everyone!!
Sunflowers are historically know for being happy flowers. So a little sun on your shoulders is just the thing to send cheer someone’s way. Which is the inspiration for my latest item on Katy Trail Creations on Etsy.
And then of course it helps that my daughter is enjoying these beauties in person in the Sunflower State.
See you next time on The Sunday Sampler
I just survivied 2 days of utter flu misery. Getting vertical was out of the question. I’d sit, lay down, walk to any room in the house to just find a place to sit or lie down. Body aches of mass proportion. Le yuck!
So sitting and being idle after chasing children most weekdays is just plain hard to get accustomed to. I may never retire. Sigh!
So while the body healed, the mind wandered and I decided to take the plunge into creating a crochet pattern.
This is the finished product. A Crochet Sunflower Knob Bob. Ties onto pot handles to keep your fingers from getting burned, saves time by allowing you to check what’s brewing, and adds convenience of not misplacing your pot holder. And it’s pretty to boot!
Will I make another??
I only hope it’s not because I have the flu next time.
Sitting here as the wife of a retired law enforcement officer and daughter-in-law of a firefighter thinking the tragedy of that horrible day never shocks me any less. The making of snowflakes is for my personal remembrance. They will be on my Christmas tree this year. My heartfelt sympathies as always to the victims’ families.
