An "easy" pattern + Some hearts

Hey all!…its kinda in the middle of the night over here in my neck of the woods but similar to my other sewing and crafty buddies; we never hardly ever sleep…we are either sewing, thinking about sewing, talking about sewing, researching something about sewing, etc…you get the idea…If you didn’t know I am also completely obsessed with sewing magazines…I have every volume of SewItAll and snatch up any other one I can get my hands on…My most recent finds were stitch|craft create Winter 2013 and Better Homes and Garden’s Sew Fresh 2012; found ’em in Target the other day….
I whipped up a new shirt for myself earlier (did I ever share that I am kinda sorta a selfish stitcher? well I am but only a little wink-wink) but I still wanted to sew something else…My sewing magazines to the rescue…they are chock full of sewing ideas that can be modified to fit anyones fancy…I always make anything I make my own…that is one of the reasons I love sewing; it is so personal….
You know I will start to ramble so I’ll get to the sharing of the photos…Today’s/Tonight’s projects include my pretty, sparkly new blouse (made from a pattern this go ’round) and some abstract hearts…
P.S. I do want to share that my hearts are GREEN; I made them from some of my scraps and the filling is t-shirt (my daughter was so kind as to slice one up I had in my stash) instead of fiberfill…they came out so darling…my bowl is beautiful tooooo!…oops, I rambling again LOL…okay, here are the pictures! (smile)

reference material (this line of patterns is very frugal; they dont have a bunch of complicated instructions or pattern pieces…very beginner-friendly….

front shot of my new shirt…Pink Cookie is such a good model…;)

Bowl bliss….

MsKRS’ abstract hearts…LOVE

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!
