Welcome to my blog. I hope that you enjoy it. My goal is to keep everyone posted as to my sewing and things that will be sold in my store at http://www.idahoatheart.etsy.com/.
I'll also blog about other things that interest me like my family, cooking (sharing receipes), things I learn along the way, etc. Hope you all enjoy.

Recent Projects

Sorry that there are no pictures today.  Several of the projects that I have finished are Christmas presents so I will post the pictures after Christmas.  I don't always have tons of time to sew.  My daughter naps from about 1-3 most afternoons and that is when I take time to sew.  I also find a little time after her naps but it really depends on the day.  Thursday I was able to finish my biggest project and able to spend more time on other projects.
If you remember the sleeping cushion project I started a week or so ago, I was able to spend quite a bit of time working on that.  In fact I finished one of them and now need to start on the other cushion.  I will post pictures when they are both done so you can see the zipper addition.  The first one turned out really well I think.  I learned a lot.  It was the not the first time making a 3D object but it was the first of it's kind.  There was a lot of picking and resewing and testing and pin pricks in my fingers.  But it is now done and the second one shouldn't take nearly as long.
I also have been working on more children's aprons.  I just need to applique cute things onto them and then I will be able to mail some off as gifts to friends and others will be posted at my store.
Today I started working on our Christmas tree skirt.  It is going to be reversable and very cute...I think.  It has also given me a lot of ideas for Christmas Tree skirts to sell on my store.  I hopefully will have the first one sewn and posted here so you can see by the end of this week.
I also had a request to make another Snowman table runner so I will also be working on that.
I have so many ideas and projects that I want to work on and I know that I have to prioritize in order to get them all done when they need to be done.  I will not be making any more Fall table runners for this year.  With time running out I just wont get them ready for Thanksgiving.  So I will work on the snowman table runner and then I am going to look ahead at upcoming holidays as well as birthdays and plan for them.
I will be making another trip to Joann's to pick up more material next week, I think.
It has been a good couple weeks and things are finally getting finished.
