What I've been Up To......

Wow I can't believe I've been absent for so long!  I have been kind of busy and have neglected posting a bit...  But I am back :0 )  Here is a little peek at what I have been up to this month.

 Payton turned 1 years old, we had a fun party.



I made his Winnie the Pooh cake, 
it turned out pretty good but I had a rough start with the outlining.



A recent trip to the flea market inspired this tricky treats Halloween apron.  I based the pattern of a vintage find, enlarged the pocket and added a second one for maximum candy storage capacity.  This would be a great apron to wear on Halloween night, it will keep you from running back and forth to the candy bowl.

I just completed this Strawberry Fields travel/makeup tote.  The idea was inspired from a recent book gift from my husband.  Simply Sublime Bags, 30 No-Sew, Low-Sew Projects.  I highly recommend this book, the instructions were supper easy to follow.  This bag sold with a few days of posting on Etsy.  I will be doing another strawberry bag soon and other patterns soon.

I like the strawberry bag & the Halloween apron. The apron is a great idea for Halloween night when all of the little ghouls and goblins come begging for candy.
