Heather, that hat is so stinking cute! They are going to love them.

Grace, your cactus is very pretty. I miss doing cross stitch and seeing your project makes me want to go dig mine out again. It's so relaxing.

Last weekend I made luggage tags. It's hard to see in the picture but the one on the left has a clear window for name & address. I have a terrible time sewing on vinyl. It always slides & doesn't lay flat. I tried cutting the piece larger than needed & trimmed after. I stopped & picked up the foot several times. I used a plastic foot, not sure what it's called but it's shorter than a regular foot.
Anyway, for the second tag, I made a fabric pocket instead.

Nice wooden decorations, Ruthie.

Great luggage tags, Andrea. I have some vinyl I was going to use to make something. Maybe I should practice first?

Thought I would share my latest Pinterest project from this past week. My sister who cans a lot, has been saving old rusted canning rings for several years. So we made pumpkins using twine, decorative paper strips and two sided tape. Also a glue gun at the end to tweak a few things. Most of my Pinterest projects are fails, but I’m kinda proud of this one.

A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel.

Andrea, cute travel labels... I know if I could still travel I would love those on my bags

Wanda, I love your pumpkins. I've seen them painted but never done like that. I like your way even better!

Ruthie Ann, all your wood projects look wonderful. I hope the fall show was a success.

Andrea, the luggage tags are so cute.

Wanda,I love your pumpkin! I want to make one of those. I'll have to see if I have any old canning lids. It turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

Grace, I can't wait to see it. I'll have to see if I have time to do some this weekend.

Vanessa, I have had to do that too. Except I just put all the stuffing back in and stitched the holes shut lol. That's the best I can do with my sewing skills!

I dad that at first but Dr. Rose MD (messy dog) ripped it right open. The original material was pretty flimsy.

We had one like that with the flimsy bottom so I hand sewed a piece of fabric over the bottom. I used a heavy cotton like what they use on lawn chairs. It's now functional and washable again.

Working on charm pack coasters (Christmas, Halloween, Spring and Autumn) for Christmas presents. I have about 60 to do so I am stacking and pinning first then will sew all of them at one time.... Hoping it won't take too long to get them done. I have about 3/4 of them stacked so it is going pretty fast. Shout out for my DH. While I was up visiting my friend's mother, he cut 60 5" squares of batting for me!!!

What a guy. Lucky you Theresa. Do you rent him out -- he could be kind of a sous chef of sewing.
