Not so fun.
Anyways, I wanted to make a needle book for my hand sewing needles. I googled and found quite a few tutorials. Kinda picked a little bit of this and a little bit of that from them and this is what I came up with. I really like the folksy large stitches, kind of a fan of the look.
Closed, it is 3"x4". I am going to make a much larger one now. There is no way all my needles will fit in this. But it was fun and I think it came out really cute for a just jumping in and giving it a go, with really no plan. (That's why the next one will be much larger).
So after a half dozen shades of blond later, she wanted to be Kylene again. So off to Heather's we went.
You can see it was kind of a process to get it back. She had to put a filler on her hair before she colored it back. That would be the orange/red dye. Then she put Kylene's original hair color on.
YAY......We have our Kylene back.......well until she tries something else...*smile*
Love your new hair Kylene.

I am going to try to learn the long arm machine tomorrow. We have had the machine a year now. I will see if I get frustrated or enjoy it. Mike has done all my quilts so far, he does such a fantastic job. I will see what I can do or just give in and let the Man do it. I'll try to remember to take pictures tomorrow of my new adventure.

We both love this place. I'm just meandering around, wondering how to fit the whole warehouse in my house. And then I spot this. Mike found a friend..I do believe his name is Quincy. Yeah, they are on first name basis now.
Kinda hard to get a photo of it between the sofa and table. But you get the idea.
My new cabinet in the front room. Big families can NEVER have enough storage.
It looks short in the photo, but it's around 4' tall.

So this was the morning of my birthday.(I love projects, so it was all good)
Mike is getting a pad poured for his new shop.
Since he gave up his last space up for my sewing room. *smile*
It is 30' X 60'. I am really excited for this project, I know he will enjoy having the
space again for all his projects. It wont get started until the end of the month or so. Kassadie has
a surgery planned in about a week, so once that's passed he will get to building.Yay.
