Labor Day. Take two.

I think my blog hates me.  I spent forever last night trying to resize the photos so they would fit.  So I’ve tried again today.  They may be too small now, but let me know what you think, because I will try again (Anything to please my readers!)  And yes, GFF that is G@tor fabric!

Now I’m annoyed.  I had a post all written for y’all.  Complete with pictures!!  And the freaking interweb ate it.  So, I bought my little sewing maching on Friday and I’ve been playing with it on and off all weekend.  I’ve got an official lesson Thursday afternoon so I can learn all the little details.  I love it and I am so excited to have it.  Here is it’s first official picture. 

And this is the fabric for my “Quilting 101” quilt:

And this is the fabric for my flannel “raggy” quilt (it will probably make more sense when I finish it and you see the finished product. 

And the fabric I bought today to make a quilt for CP’s parents for Christmas.  I know it’s only September, but I am sure it will take me a while and I want to have it done in plenty of time. 

I had more than this written, but since the interweb ate it and I’m annoyed, you’ll have to take the pictures and I’ll try to recover the rest of the post for later.

Sew simple!

I took a beginning sewing class this weekend. And I learned how to machine sew.  I made a pillowcase.  Then I made another one. So, I have 2 pillowcases I sewed all by myself!  I must admit, I am pretty impressed with myself, but I am having trouble with my picture sharing. As soon as I figure it out, will post pix so you can see how I did.
