B is for Buttons and Bingo and Believe and Bliss

Well I have been working on a few things.  I love these little vintagey wire hangers, so I decided to create a few wall hangings. These will probably end up in my Etsy shop. I did get some of my purse organizers with matching wallets listed.  These are sew fun to make and so handy to keep coupons, receipts and your shopping list right where you can find it.
I can't seem to concentrate on just one project lately,  I just flit from one thing to the next.  Maybe I need a road trip to clear my head.  There is a wonderful antique shop in Lancaster, Ohio that I love.  It is called the Ole Shoe Factory.  I can spend hours in there. Hint, hint.....who wants to come with?  Have a good week everyone!

Sew Sweet Cupcakes

Can't you just see a cupcake rack sitting on this for a Birthday party...so cute!
 Don't you just hate it when you want to make something and everything just goes wrong?  I was so looking forward to a long weekend...(I had Friday off) and I just could not get the creative juices flowing.  Arggg! I cut fabric wrong..my machine was being a pain, I couldn't find a pattern I knew I had purchased.  I finally just had to walk away.    So, Sunday was a new day and I decided I wasn't leaving that room until I created something cute!  I have had this fabric for a while and decided it would make a cute table runner.  I might have to make some matching napkins or maybe a Birthday Banner. It measures 36 inches long and 12 1/2 inches wide.  I channel quilted the fabric first then added the ruffle and backing.

Thanks to my sisters great idea I have been filing fabric. What a concept.  I still need more hanging file folders. I haven't gotten to the third drawer yet, but two are done. I may change a few things. If they are small pieces, I put 3 or 4 fabrics on one file, which made them kind of thick.  Trial and error I guess, but this freed up 2 shelves in my closet for card making supplies.  I rearranged the whole room, so it's a little more user friendly.  When I am making cards or scrapbooking I always hated dragging out all my tools and cluttering up my work area. So, I moved my table next to the closet that most of my tools are in.  I can easily reach in and get a punch or whatever, use it and place it right back in the closet without even getting out of my chair.  I am lovin' that!  I also finally got my  "S  E  W" letters hanging on my bookshelf.  I love the scrolly design. I got them at Hobby Lobby.....1/2 price..Yeah!
