Good Morning Tuesday 4-24-2012 !!!

We had a beautiful weekend.  We traveled with some friends to Fort Bragg, CA and enjoyed just being away!!!  Sometimes we have to do that for our souls :)    It was actually more of a working weekend, well.....sort of I guess.   Our friends daughter graduates High School this year and last year she asked us about doing her daughter Senior Portraits.   Now mind you I am no photographer, but I LOVE photography.   I have been learning a little more and a little more over the past few years, and sometimes I get it right, and other times, well.....I don't :-/    

My husband and I spent about 10 hours on Saturday Hiking to waterfalls, visiting Mendocino, stopping at the harbor, running over to the skunk train, and ending up at 10 mile beach....all with cameras in tow!  

I think we did GREAT---obviously we are bound to get a few pictures of the 500 plus that we took :)

The best part about the whole day/weekend was we spent it with friends and family, there was no stress and we got to practice photography!   The best way I know how to learn is TRY it....and Learn from it.   Yes I am a hands on kinda girl. 

Here is a little Sneak Peek

Work In Progress!

Awww Prom 2012.  I Love Prom season :)  Every year I am given the honor of custom making my daughters dress.  She thinks about starting in January and usually by March she decides on something.  She explains to me what she wants and about the time I "think" I understand and start drafting a pattern, it is not always right.  But Hey we are learning, and more than anything we are communicating.   I am going to miss this next year!  

Anyways, After a few weeks of drafting, muslin, and a test dress we finalized the design.  Today I cut the Lace fabric and ran into a few sanfus--LOL   I learned to hand sew lace today :)   I thought about a dart at the corner, did not like that look, thought about gathers, but she wanted a very clean look.   Well here is it SEW far----lots of hand sewing to go, and lots of details to figure out....PROMISE it will be done before PROM.

How to make an adjustable Head Band

A fun and easy way to make an adjustable Head Band.    A little bit of elastic, a plastic ring and slide and a needle and thread or fabric tac and you will have one done in no time!   I prefer the adjustable ones, because sometimes the headbands just feel to tight, or want to slip up the back of my head.   These are GREAT for everyone, and you can make the smaller for the little one if you need to.

Rainy Tuesday

Good Morning!  Well I guess good, we need the rain, but I am ready for spring!  I want to open all the windows and get a nice breeze blowing through the house, some sunshine through the windows, and turn up some music and SEW SEW SEW.

But instead I will embrace the rain here in Northern CA, and complete a few projects, and lay out some new fabric combinations :)  All in a days work <3
