Great Thanksgiving!!

First of all I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!!I had a great Thanksgiving!I cooked and baked and did all that good stuff!Family and friends all came our house for dinner.Great time!!

My sister and I went out shopping at 4:00 in the morning.I wanted to go to JoAnn's and she wanted to go to Walmart.Well I gave in and went to Walmart.We went to the super Walmart got a close parking space walk right on in.Then we get to the electronic department that's when all heck broke!!They had all sales items wrapped up in black wrap with the salesman standing by the items until 5:00am when the sales start.Guys when the that clock hit 5:00am this is when the people went CRAZY!!I wished I wished I had my camera so I could have video tape that!!!.After my sister got what she wanted, I went to JoAnn's and she went to Jcpenny's.The main thing I wanted from JoAnn's was the dress form that they had on sale for 89.99!!They were all gone I was heart broken!!!!So I went to pick out some flannel material they had on sale for .99 cent a yard.Got ready to get in line had to get a number.The number they were on was 5,I had number 62!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I waited 2 hours to get my fabric cut out.I made a lot of friends while I was waiting.Well now I have enough fabric to make PJ's bottoms for family and friends.

This is what the two hour wait was for!!I only paid 16.00$ for 16 yards of fabric pretty good I think!!

Simplicity 3961

This was a easy sew.I just love easy patterns.I bought this pattern when JoAnn fabrics had their Simplicity patterns on sale for 1.99.When they have a pattern sale I have buy at least one pattern to feel good!
Material:This fabric had been in my stash a while couldn't remember what kind it was.I do remember that it was on clearance for 1.50 an yard and that it was machine washable.
Notions: 7" zipper,hook and eye, one package of twill tape.
Color: gray/black and a hint of blue.

I want to use this fabric to make a top to go with the gauchos I made.The thing is it is only two yards of fabric so it will have to be a sleeveless top or a short sleeve top.I am going to try and use a pattern I already have.TRYING VERY HARD NOT TO BUY ANY MORE PATTERNS!!WELL FOR THIS YEAR ONLY!!!

My very first crocheted slipper!!My dd loved them so I will be making more.I added the pom pom to them.
Yarn: worsted medium
Color: Frosty green
Pattern: Child Slipper (very easy)

Well that's it for me have a great day!Happy crafting!!

Computer down and no camera!!!!!!!

First of all I shouldn't be on my computer!!My computer has a virus!!!My dh got on the computer and the next day everything was a mess!My dh opens up everything that comes up on the computer when he is on the Internet!!Well when he got off the computer it was like the computer went crazy!My virus protection didn't even protect my computer from what ever is wrong with it.So I will have to take my computer to the Geek Squad to get the virus or what ever is wrong with it fixed.

Went to get my camera to get a picture of my progress with Ms. Shorty.Looked all over the house for my camera!!Couldn't find it!Called my dh to see if he knew where it was!He gave my camera to his brother to use.He has had my camera for a week!!!!

I think what I am saying is I am lost without my computer and camera.I sneak on the computer every once in a while to make some comments because I am going stir crazy without it!!!!

Well that's it for me until I get my computer fixed!!!!:(

Have a great day!!!!!

Well I did get some sewing done this week!I made Simplicity 3690 view E and C.This is one of there easy chic patterns.I love love easy patterns.Top was very easy to make only thing is the tucks in the shirt were very small so it took ME a lot of time to get them in right.With the vest I no troubles until I got to the lining.My lining came out a little short when I was pinning it to the vest.I check to see if all my darts were put together right.Everything seemed to be together right.I didn't have enough fabric to cut out another lining.I hate to tell you guys what I did in fear that I might be put out of the sewing blogging world !!!HA HA Well I took what fabric I had and sewed it to where I needed more lining and cut off what I didn't need and sewed the lining in.You can see what I am talking about in the picture below.PLEASE DON'T KICK ME OUT OF THE BLOGGING SEWING WORLD!!

This is where I had to do some special alteration!HA HA!
Notions:(top) interfacing (vest) five 3/4 buttons
Fabric: (vest)stretch denim (top) cotton blend
This was a great pattern even with problems I had with the vest.

My hubby and I finally finally went to see Tyler Perry new movie.Why did I get married. Yes I put on my newly made top and vest and off we went.This was a good movie.Thumbs up for Mr. Perry!After the movies went out for drinks.I tried a new drink call What she's having.If you like fruity drinks than this is the drink for you.


I have been working on Ms Shorty.I ran into some gauging problems with her.I had to take her down four times before I finally got the gauge right.I might have to put her down for a while so I can get started with some Christmas gifts.Yes it is that time again.

Ms Shorty!This is the sleeve.

Well that's it for me you all have a great day!!
