STRIPES MEET WILLOW




MONDAY, MAY 21, 2012

I've been "away" for some time,
not intentional, just happened.
Random life situations, pet concerns, exhaustion, brain farts.....
When I mean away, I mean no real computer time,
No Facebook
No blog stalking
Nothing.
I checked a few emails and that was it.
I tried so many times to get back on here,
never worked!
I've caught up on most of my fav blogs recently,
 so it seems I may be coming around.
:)
Since I didn't get the pleasure before........
April Fools!
I hope it was all fun
Happy Easter!
I pray you received the gift of Resurrection.
Happy Mother's Day!
 Mommas, whether biologically or of the heart,
 I hope you felt appreciated and honored!

online


and

Happy to just be :)

Although I've been "gone", I have been VERY busy.
More childcare added to my schedule, new activities for my kids :), a "little" sewing-for-profit project for my sis's pal again,
(which took much longer than it should have)
and striving to get it done so I could continue boutique items.
Aside from the eternity scarfs
 HERE
that I worked on previously,
I only got to work on 1 blouse which I didn't even get to donate
 this weekend to the boutique, lol 
(I'll show you in the next post)
I've been "gone" I tell you!

I KNOW I said I was going to make & donate lots.....
I totally failed.
I feel really bad too.
I did however donate a few items I had previously worked on.

The event was beautiful,
lots of people came to receive great clothing,
free haircuts,
prayer
&
food.

BUT I have a chance to still help out!
This June our church will host
its 3rd fundraising sale to support outreach & growth in the church.
I will for SURE donate items.


Now on to the STRIPES.

Image Detail
Isn't this cute?!
Very similar to what I worked with but larger
found HERE


I worked on covering S's seat cushion & pillows.

S is my sis's boss.
I mentioned here that my sis E. had me doing another project for S.
This will be my 3rd.
S. must continue to trust me lol
Of course this was weeks ago :/

CUSHION & PILLOW COVERS
Little hands had left this 6 month old seat a tad worn.

Here it is after!
