handmade home :: my first project

it's been so long since my last post! i'm having some blogging blues, i think. partly because of blogger being so hard to deal with. partly because i have mixed feelings about my blog lately. and partly because i have been so busy! more on all of that later. in case anyone is actually reading this.

on to more fun topics :: SEWING!!!

i'm totally loving amanda soule's new book Handmade Home.

here's my first project from it. i made these for my niece and nephew for their birthdays while we spent time together at the beach last week.

they put them to use immediately which was so very satisfying!
they were easier than i thought, thankfully and i had everything i needed already on the premises. it's funny, i have had this extra screen from when we put a new screen in our front door. for 2 years i have been saying i'll make something with it. and finally, here was the perfect home for it!

next project from HH :: mail pouches!

Adorable bags! I need to get my sewing itch on to get curtains made for my kitchen and kids room, but alas, that itch isn't too overpowering right now. I am definitely keeping track of your blog, and happy you're back! Can't wait to see if we have a September cookie to bake, too!

(sorry, had to delete my last comment for spelling errors. Aaack!)

I'm reading....and so glad it's here to read. Do you remember a friend who loved cows and made you laugh? Yeah...that's me. And I love seeing how wonderful your life seems to be going.

What a good idea...a SCREEN! Amazing.

Thoughts about your blog...what does that mean? I only ask because I, too, have been having "thoughts about my blog" :)
