A Cake for a 3 year old 'Big' Boy

Of course it had to be spiderman .... the black/red icing turned all of our mouths and teeth purple, but he LOVED it :)

Two Quilts for two little boys ... Matt & Zack ... :)

Just finished these baby gifts ... I love making these little crib quilts.

Find of the week - a 100% preshrunk Cotton Bat for $3 (brand new) at a Thrift Shop that was big enough to use in both little quilts :) Gotta Love that!

I was going to make them identical ... but the little boys aren't identical ...
plus even if they were - they're two different people right?!

Sew Easy Butterfly Mobile ...

First of all - Full credit for the inspiration for this to Missie Krissie - SO gorgeous!!

The hoops are wooden Embroidery hoops covered in pink fabric strips wound around and glue-gunned into place. Then I tied Embroidery Floss 'x's so I would have something to fasten the strings of butterflies to. Attached the hoops together with about 5" of ribbon
Glue gunned ribbon trim on the inside & outside of each fabric finished hoop.

To make the Butterfly Strings you just sew with thread only on your sewing machine to create an intertwined chain then add a butterfly (you end up sewing through the middle) and then chain some more then another butterfly and on and on until you get the length you need. Then tie them on were ever you want them .... voila

Running for Boobies!!

I haven't stepped foot in my sewing room this summer ... I have been too busy - outside in the garden and flower beds mostly but as the temp drops, I am finding my way back inside :)

One of the things I did for the first time was the Run for the Cure ... It was so much fun that I can't wait for next year!!
