Father Cube: Great Father’s Day Project

Oh, WOW! I just got a great email from CurrClick. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I was trying to find something neat to do with the kids for Father’s Day. Read this….

Here is the link to the product. It’s only $2.00 right now!

Fathers’ Day is June 21!  Make a lasting tradition with Dad! 

From the makers of the Fathers’ Day Project Pack comes another great product! The Dad Cube is a fun and meaningful project for fathers and children to make together, or for children to make as a gift for Dad. During the course of the project, children will get to know their fathers better, express their love and appreciation for Dad, and make a terrific Fathers’ Day memory that goes on and on!   Once you make the Dad Cube, it is passed back and forth between father and child, always with a note of appreciation or a small gift.  The project pack and materials are cheaper than a greeting card, and over the years, it will mean much more! Appropriate for all ages.

One ‘Sweet’ Purse

I made this for a contest….and I fell in love with it, and I don’t even like candy corn. Only problem, DD wants one now and this one took me about four hours to make. Maybe I can skimp and use felt for hers.

—side view—

It feels sooo good to be able to sew something. I’ve been working on a quilt now for about three months (or more). It seems every time I get started on one thing with it, something happens. The top looked perfect when I got it finished. After putting four (yes I said four) layers of batting behind it and a layer of flannel, it looks wonky. I broke countless needles trying to bind the stupid thing. (I only call it stupid because it was such a problem).

—pre-quilted—

This was a project for the kids great-great-grandmother. She did the embroidery years ago. The kids great-great-aunt was going thru her mother’s stuff and happened upon them. This will be a present for her. Shhh…don’t tell her, she doesn’t know yet. The reason for the four layers of batting, she is bedridden and is always complaining of freezing. This heavy thing is definitely going to keep her warm.

—close up of her embroidery—

I just have to say that I don’t usually quilt. This will be my second completed large quilt that was machine quilted. I did make the boys a quilt each that I tie-quilted. Those were made after the first sewn one. I only have a regular machine and those big rolls just don’t want to go through the middle. ….pause while I dream of a bigger machine…

Well, I’m off to make about six school buses. That’s a fleet!

Easter Memories

Wow! I can’t believe this year is going by so fast. I remember last Easter. I spent the whole morning sewing my daughter’s Easter dress. Thankfully, this year I got it done the day before. I must like to cut it close on timing. I guess that’s why I file my taxes on the last day.

This Easter was different. The kids woke up with baskets of crackers and juice boxes on the table (alongside the ducklings and chickies). I have never made the kids a basket before and my DD had been wanting one of those pre-made ones from the stores. When my Mom heard about my never doing baskets, she told the kids about how we ALWAYS got one. I hope they don’t expect one next year. That was too much trouble.

Anyways, I guess now I have to get ready to file my taxes. I finished my in-laws today. I have theirs down to a science. The lady has us scheduled for two hours. Today we finished them in 30 minutes. I guess I’m getting better. Next year, I’m aiming for 20 minutes.

Here is a pic of my DD’s dress and basket. Never again will I sew stretchy satin. I hate that stuff.
