sunday stash

sunday stash, originally uploaded by suesueb.
Some really sweet Christmas fabric destined to become another little girls' dress. It really could be worn throughout the winter. Will post a picture of the dress later this week-I need to go finish up a little quilt for a birthday gift for today. I'll visit around tonight when I'm relaxing! Go visit here!!

Joined Amy's Christmas ornament swap again this year. I even started the ornaments!! It's always so fun, sort of like a secret Santa. Check out the adorable badge she made for us. Love, love, love.

Pink Saturday

Another Pink Saturday already and I hope you join me in visiting some of the pink blogs from here.
Showing some more dresses I made for a friend's grand daughters. Trying to do some Christmas early.

I love this fabric by Alexander Henry-so bright and fun! (trying to find some more) It's hard to see but I used some fancy stitches along the hem.

I hope you all have a wonderful Pink Saturday and will try to visit as much as possible this week. I won't be participating for a while with family matters and holiday and sewing obligations. Wishing y'all all some wonderful months ahead with family and friends!

Creative Spaces

I love checking out the Creative Spaces hosted by this lovely lady. So many great inspirations and really cute ideas!! Sharing my space this week with some Christmas ornaments I'm making for a swap. Finally joined all the quilters with their hexagon love. These little bitty things take some time! But they're really quite addictive. Maybe after the other holiday chaos settles down, I'll try to make some larger ones.
Going visit the other creative ladies on the list-later!

Movie sets and loving my repaired Bernina

They filmed a small movie in town last week and I took a few pictures of the set before they started. It's being done by a local couple who have done quite a few films, historical fiction and non-fiction. This one is about WWII soldiers who married French girls and brought them home after the war. They set up this store front to recreate the 1940's.

Isn't it neat??

Don't you wish the prices were the same today??

I did go watch a little while when I walked my dog but didn't bring the camera. Loved the old cars and clothes!!

On another note, sewing happily with my repaired machine. I had sent it off for a few(long) weeks and really missed though my d-i-l lent me her Brother. I've been having fun with the fancy stitches that I couldn't use for so long. Check it out..............

Little flower stitch.

Zig-zag for the applique and a buttonhole stitch around the yoke.

Making me soooooooo  happy!!!
