Mommy Pig and Piglets

I am really serious about finishing up all of those projects that I blogged about! Right away, I finished that big mommy pig. It just needed more stuffing, a small repair, and a nose. I bought the pattern about 5 or 6 years ago from ikatbag HERE. Part of the reason that I procrastinated so long on this one was because I wasn’t too thrilled about how it was turning out. When I started it,…

Egg Nest No-Bake Cookies

Every now and then I find that one of my blog posts has disappeared. I probably accidentally deleted it at one point when I cleaned things up around here. “Cleaning” the blog is better than cleaning the house- it actually stays that way! Anyway, the other day, I was on a crazy cooking spree with breakfast sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. Spring sports are starting up and with three of the girls on three different teams…

Finish-A-Long Goals Q2

I am not holding back today. I am a procrastinator. I start things and don’t finish them. Then, I start other things and just keep piling on the unfinished projects. My sewing table is in my bedroom- some of those unfinished projects are the first things I see when I go to sleep and when I wake up. There are other stuffed in different areas of my house, too. I feel like a failure for…

Baby Clothes Memory Bear Pattern and Tutorial

I really can’t take credit for this idea. A friend asked me to make a stuffed bear from the outfit her baby wore home from the hospital. She got the idea from Pinterest and it was a bad link so I can’t source it.   So, I had to come up with my own bear pattern. I used as few pieces as possible, but some extra stitching gives it more shape and allows it to…

Furreal Friends Monkey Diapers and Pillowcase Top

My daughter got this adorable Furreal Friends monkey for Christmas. It really is super cute, even if the nose ripped in the first day or two. (She also got a dog two years ago and it broke in the first few days. If these things weren’t so cute that she still loves them immensely I would stop buying them due to the poor quality). There was also another problem. The bottom holds the batteries and…

WIP Wednesday ~ SPRING!

I am so happy that spring is finally here! I needed some sunshine!!! The flip-flopping spring teaser weather the past few weeks had been pretty disappointing. I was kind of in a mood and I ended up not finishing the girls’ Easter dresses. I just didn’t feel like it. I will finish them all eventually, but I am not stressing out about it. I have 3 1/2 done and need to do a lot of…

Baked Omelet Roll and Freezer Breakfast Sandwich Hack

I don’t like mornings.But, I do like breakfast!It just takes me awhile to wake up enough to make breakfast. One of my favorite easy breakfast dishes is baked omelet roll. It just looks fancy and the eggs are nice and fluffy since you  mix everything in the blender. I have made it for brunch showers or MOPS meetings. You can add in spinach for a nice pop of color (and healthiness). Bacon or ham would…

Mend Holes in Jeans 3 Different Ways

My 7yo has been really hard on her jeans! I guess she is just at that age. I also catch her crawling around on the floor playing with her younger sisters a lot. Whatever the cause, she is wearing holes in the knees of all of her jeans! Some of them I just bought her a few months ago! Grrr! I did get her another pair, but I don’t want to keep buying jeans because…

Easter Baskets 2016

My shop isn’t officially open, but I made some Easter baskets this year for new babies who wanted to match their older siblings. 🙂 I accidentally dyed my hand aqua with this one. Oops! The camo baskets were dipped in natural walnut hull dye. They are probably all a little too young to hunt eggs this year, but I am sure they will carry a few treats on Easter. I am glad that I am…

WIP Wednesday ~ Getting Ready for Easter

Besides one for my nephew, I finished up all of my Easter basket orders last week and it was a big relief to be done so early! I will share pics of all of those later this week. We had a spell of nice weather, so I spent some time in the sunroom cutting out one of the girls’ Easter dresses. I usually don’t start them until a week before Easter, so this was highly…
