Sewing madness....

This past week I celebrated my birthday. Nothing outrageously crazy just a nice evening with all my boys. My husband made us dinner. When I say he made me dinner I mean he FRIED chicken. Yummy! Yes, it was delicious. The boys had basketball practice and then we had ice cream cake for desert. Anyways I got a special gift I have been wanting for some time.

A sewing machine.

(happy dance)

Well I have been sewing my little heart out. Get back into the swing of it. It is sort of one of those things like a bike, once you learn you never forget. This machine is so smooth, quiet and most of all NO knotting up everything. Its awesome. So here are some of the projects I've been working on.

Pillow inspired by Pottery Barn and by bestest friend
