Full Moon = Happy ME

Hey all!…there is a full moon tonight and I am full of energy like always when there’s one…I am supposedly a moon child and I believe that to be true….I always seem to feel my best when the sun shines in the daytime and the moon shines at night…..now of course with all the good feelings comes a buncha sewing and crafty ideas so I have been creating like crazy….
anyway, does anyone watch Project Runway?…I had never watched it before this season (Season 10) but I guess there comes a time for most things…I have been really enjoying this season a lot and always keep myself up to date…now remember my girl Pink Cookie? (my dress form)  well since I now have her I have been wanting so badly to learn draping techniques…Project Runway is so full of other fluff that I hardly get to see them work but I do notice some of their techniques…they do a sketch of what they are going to create before every project…I need to learn that too…One of my back issues of Sew News had some information on draping and sketching but I have a feeling that those techniques are going to be like all the others I learned…all of a sudden!…I read and read but I learn the best by just doing it…..
**Off subject** my huny just came home with a shirt from his friend…He told his friend that I can put his button back on his shirt….I don’t even like his friend!!!!!…but I will put the button back on his shirt; just because I’m nice like that…(wink-wink)
I also started a new window treatment for my bathroom but that will be a WIP (work in progress) because I did NOT realize all the ironing involved….I wasn’t ready…LOL….
well let me share my projects I have completed this week and stop rambling…talk to y’all soon! 😀

Mug Mat…pattern from Sew It All Volume 3

(without the mug) 😉

A coaster I created for myself….this is my pattern and one of my excuses to use rick-rack…
I may create a tutorial for this one….

More mug mats but with my own patterns…..these are so fun to make and they are so useful too….these are going to a good friend of mine over at Bella Card Creations…find her on facebook by searching that name…she has any card you can possibly think of….have a looksee! 🙂

Multi-purpose roll….this pattern is in Sew It All Volume 2…this one is going to one of my childhood friends….

MsKRS’ pencil skirt….so easy and cute….wearing it this weekend….:)

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
