A few little goodies in the works!










I promise, I have been busy...just not very busy blogging!
It seems that about this time every year I end up making some of these little guys,
my sweet snowman ornaments.

I just love them, they make me smile ~
I should have several finished and in my Etsy shop by the first of the week.
If you want to make one of your own,
I sell the tutorial with photographed instructions in the shop too!!



The above photo is just the first stage...they'll eventually look like this:



PLUS...I've created a pattern for a long, skinny stocking and have tested it out!
I'm going to add some wonderful antique laces and buttons to adorn the front.
So far, I'm really liking the shape of it....I just used muslin on the outside and the lining.
I would love for it to have an aged look when I'm finished ~ we'll see!!




I know it isn't even Halloween yet but I always start making these things
about this time of year because you and I both know,
we will blink and it will be Christmas!!!!
I'll be sure to share more photos as my projects develop too!


Thank you always for stopping by here to see what I'm up to ~
Wishing you a beautiful fall weekend dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Change is in the air and a SALE!!




As the weather changes and begins to cool,
my thoughts always turn to the holidays!

Halloween is fast approaching and we all know
that we'll blink and it will be Thanksgiving...
we'll blink again...and Christmas will be here!!

My mind is spinning, thinking of what project to make next.
I have a few ideas for Christmas that are coming together in my mind,
now just to make them happen!!!

I'm looking through my library of images for inspiration....
here are a few to share with you:









What's on my mind??? Skinny long stockings...angel slippers...precious lambs.
We'll see what materializes!!!

I finally finished that big fleur-de-lis soap order!!
Using only one mold was a challenge but I found
that if I just kept at it, steady as you go...
the pile grew bigger and bigger!
They really did look so pretty all stacked up in the box ~




PLUS...
I'm having a sale in my Sewmanyroses Etsy shop
starting now through this coming Sunday night (Oct 19)!!
Just type OCTOBERSALE in the Coupon Code box when checking out

It's time to get creative!!!!!



I hope you are doing so, so good!!!
Wishing you a beautiful fall weekend precious friends,
hugs and love,

A few days in the life ~











So...what's been going on around here???
Regular ol' every day things ~
washing clothes, cooking yummy dinners and
in the last few days, I've given a few hair trims!

I've cut our boys hair their whole lives and our next-to-the-youngest, Chase,
needed a trim Friday. Then, little Murray and Clara, our grandbabies, needed
a trim as well! Then their mama, Emily wanted an inverted bob...so I did it!
She ended up loving it!

I'm sorry, no pics though, I was just too tired!

All the while we have a soap order in our General Store Soap Shop
for 65 fleur de lis soaps for a special party
and guess what???
We have ONE mold!!!
So I've been pouring them constantly, popping them out,
then pouring another...
but it was a wonderful order and worth the effort.




Wishing you a wonderful day precious friends,

hugs and love,
Dawn
