I had no problems making this outfit, it came out looking just like the pattern.This is something I would make again.

I have a question.Have you ever went to a store and the people in the store didn't want to help you?I went to Walmart to take my son to get some school supplies.Whenever I go to Walmart I always go see if they have any nice fabric on their clearance rack.So while I was looking, the sales lady was on the other side of the fabric rack.I found the fabric I used to make this outfit on the rack and was so happy I knew what I was going to make with it.So I go to the cutting table and wait for the sales lady, she acted like she didn't see me there.So I went to get her,I was a little upset,but I didn't show it.My son whispered in my ear Mama she act like she don't want to help you.I said maybe she had a bad day.Now the fabric was a 1.00 a yard.I told her I want 5 yards of the navy fabric and two yards of the other fabric.She started flinging my fabric off the board and she folded it any kind of way.I didn't say thing I just took my fabric and receipt and went to pay for my things.Long story somewhat short I got home and she made a mistake and charge me 2.00 for all that fabric!!:) :) :) :)That was a great day!!!!

Well thats it for me!!Happy crafting!!

Pay it forward gifts

I join Ms Dishmey in a Pay-it-Forward game just before the Christmas Holiday.How it works is you have 365 days to make a gift for three people.When I posted it on my blog only one person joined me in this game. Ms Lesa join me, so I made her three gifts to make up for not having a total of three people to join in with me.I really had fun making these gifts for Ms.Lesa she says she really like the gifts I made her.I am going to have to try this again some day.:)I made her a neckwarmer,bracelet and a apron.

Pattern: Simplicity 3752 view B
Fabric: 250 count sheets
Well thats it for me happy Valentine's Day!!!

After seeing Crimson Purl knitted neck warmer I had to have one.I am not a knitter so I went on line to find a crocheted neck warmer pattern and made me one.This took me only an hour and half to make love it.This came in handy this week because it has been very very cold here!!
