What’s On My Table Wednesday

Hi everyone! I’m currently catching up on orders (sewing up my 37th Annie dress) while I stare at this awesome fabric from Kammie Lou Lou’s….I’m dying…dying to make something with those prints! If you haven’t heard of KLL fabrics they are fantastic! A little bit pricey but you get what you pay for….unique prints on quality cotton. I have also ordered a castle boarder print featuring the Fab5 that should be arriving soon. So if you are planning a Disney vacation any time this year and need something special please let me know!!! These prints are super limited πŸ™‚

Until next time!!

What’s on my table Wednesday….

Several weeks ago, I was tasked with making a few super hero costumes. Except they were not the normal every day ones. These were super special for 4 super kids! I was hoping to have a in the moment picture to share but that hasn’t been shared with me as of yet. I will update this if I ever get one. The kids have their own comic which is so amazing! They helped me narrow down the fabric choices and this is what they ended up with.

So cool right!!! I hope they are encouraged to draw more comics and maybe someday we can pick up a published copy somewhere!!!

Until next time…

To Disney We Go….

Ahhhhh….Disney…how I’ve missed you!!! Met some of our favorite characters, rode some rides, ate lots of great food, recreated some pictures, surfed with Stitch, found a Merri Poppins creation wandering around Hollywood Studios, took some selfies with Mary and Snow……

All in all it was a GREAT trip. We are tired but getting back into the swing of things. It definitely wasn’t long enough!!! I did come back with some new ideas for the shop. It was really hot last week, so I’m adding more character sun dresses for sure!!! Check back soon πŸ™‚

Until next time….

Surprise 40th Birthday Success and Updates

So the birthday boy blew out his 40 candles!!! The surprise party was a success but I have to admit I don’t like secrets. That was super stressful! He had no clue what we were planning πŸ™‚ and he wasn’t exactly happy with me (for about 5 mins). I had him picking up his own supplies and he didn’t even know it…LOL. Sneaky! But now he can say he’s had a surprise party and check that off his bucket list! We celebrate his birthday every year but not always in a big way. It’s hard for those people born around the holidays, they do get the short end of the stick. I didn’t quite finish his quilt either. For some strange reason I have had a ton of orders! People are planning Disney trips left and right! LOL

My husband’s biggest request was that the quilt would be big enough for him to wrap up in. I think I accomplished that! It’s going to take me a while in between orders to finish up the quilting portion but I have it sandwiched and partially quilted. It’s a beast. I thought the Bargello I made was enormous. NAH! Evidently I can go bigger….

The Bargello couch quilt is on top for comparison. The hubs quilt fills quite a bit of the living room floor! I’m thinking the next free weekend will be dubbed “do not interrupt me I’m quilting dad’s giant squares” weekend. But not this weekend!! This weekend wraps up High School Swim season with Mr. A going to States with his relay. The hubs and I also have an annual work party to attend. Miss H is settling into applying for scholarships since hitting accept to her #1 pick of schools. The other two kids and pets will be along for the ride..LOL

These are busy times! Oh I did say I was working on Disney trip items…well here they are!!

There has been so much stuff going on!!! Now let me finish up tax stuff and then I will be sewing up some more new items! I have a really neat order to share next week!

So until next time!!!

What’s On My Table Wednesday

Sloooow and steady. That is what has been going on around here.

I have been getting things accomplished though! My office is still a disaster with all of the projects being worked on at the moment. But here is a quick recap of what I’ve managed to finish…

I’m proud to say that I did complete those 2 mermaid UFO’s I mentioned!!! I am also working on finishing up my husband’s quilt for his birthday next week. It definitely feels awesome to check things off the list.

And I found these half finished knit baby pants that were almost wearable in my UFO pile. They only needed elastic for the waist! I’m sure I ran out of elastic and set them aside completely forgetting all about them. Honestly I can’t remember how long they’ve been in the pile. Anyway, they will be in my shop soon once I get a few picts of them!!

Hopefully by me finishing up some of my UFO’s, it will encourage you to finish a project or two that you’ve put on the back burner for whatever reason. Everyone has something!!! I would love to hear about it πŸ™‚ Leave me a comment on what you have waiting to be completed!!!!

Until next time….

Big Plans

So a few days ago I shared that I had big {HUGE} plans.  Well that meant I was finally going to seriously tackle the LARGE pile of UFO’s that I have accumulated.  A UFO is (if you don’t know) an UnFinished Object.  I have several bins of them. Too many.

What’s really sad is some of the dresses are almost done! Which frustrates me a lot since I know there are several awesome items just waiting….ever so patiently.  I have such good intentions of being organized and then it all unravels.  So my goal is to finish 1 a week through August.  I might be able to get more done but who knows.  I have already condensed them into quilts and garments containers.  So that’s a start!!

I have 4 quilts going on.  A cat quilt for my daughter for when she goes to college, so I have some time for that one.  My Harry Potter quilt that is halfway through.  My husbands that I might finish up in time for his birthday this month!!  And a special one for a friend.  So for today…I’m going to tackle these 2 dresses.  They probably have an hour’s worth of work left before they are wearable.

They are both mermaid inspired and perfect for summer.  With the new awesome Disney deals just announce, maybe a lucky little girl will get to twirl in the park and meet her favorite princess!! I will post an update once they are finished and loaded in the shop πŸ™‚

Until next time….

Happy New yEAR!

Hey ya’ll! Long time no see!?! Yep that would be my fault. You see, I always have the best intentions but lack the time to cram it all in. I know I’m not alone. So for this year’s resolution I’m going to cut myself some slack and just take it 1 day at a time! 😍 That already feels manageable!

Ok..so what does that mean for my shop?? I guess you’re going to have to check in and see what’s going on. I do have plans. BIG, HUGE plans! But first, a not-so-secretive secret to share. After many, many years…12 to be exact….we are going on vacation! To…..DISNEY! Yes you heard that correctly! The Herndons will be hanging out in Disney this year. All of those crazy sewing hours will have paid off. So THANK YOU again to those who have supported my little shop. I’m secretly hoping to spy a few of my creations running about so drop a comment of when you are going so I can see if we will be there at the same time! So exciting!

One new item coming soon is the option for coordinating ears! They are so much fun to make and wear. My oldest daughter has been designing several to share with her friends on their band trip to Disney in a few weeks. So as I get some pictures back of them in use, I will start adding those to the shop.

 

 

 

Just some fun simple ones to start off 😍 And watch for new characters like Goofy! This dress was so much fun to make. I love the pocket!

 

So that’s all for now my friends!! Until next time!
