Meet Mac

Mac flew home with Harry on tuesday this past week. All the way from Wisconsin, in a pet carrier, in the cabin of the plane, under the seat!
He was slightly big for the carrier, but it was better than putting him under the plane. He did not make a peep the whole 4 hours!
He has been settling in nicely. Such a sweet boy.

Jewelry, chicken coops, and other things....

So much is happening in my world right now. We are seriously exploring the idea of adding backyard chickens to our life! I spend a lot of time each day looking at coop designs online of what other people have come up with. The following is a coop that I really like alot. We are hoping to use recycled materials to build our coop.

I have also been creating now that my jewelry space is cleaned up and organized. I made these earrings so that I could remove the bead dangle and change them out depending on what I am wearing. I really like the ear wires and will be making more dangles for them.

My son has been creating also. We went to the Flower and Garden show a couple weeks ago when he was off for mid-winter break and he made a dirt head with hose, grass seed and soil. It is kinda cute!

I have also been working through my yarn stash and have made a triangle scarf and a knit hat. I'm not gonna share the pictures of those. I put those pictures on ravelry

Lastly: I won something on a blog giveaway!
I won this lovely pincushion on Crazy Lanea's blog! It looks perfect on my sewing table. Thank-you Lanea! I am gonna have to have a giveaway sometime in the future.

The weekend is here. Enjoy!

A beginning quilter

Ever since Harrison saw the mug rug I made for my friend, he has been wanting to make one. I hesitated. But then I thought "Why not." So he picked out his fabric. I did most of the cutting since it involves a rotary blade, but he did all the sewing by himself! He chose to sew the binding on with the machine which suited me since it was easier than hand sewing. He really enjoyed himself and is already planning what he wants to do next!

Mug Rug

To celebrate a major clean up of half my sewing/jewelry making room, I made a mug rug for a friend today using this tutorial.

I think it turned out pretty good. I used old jeans and some quilt scraps. I'll be making more for sure.
