It's so hot I can't think.

I was trying to title this post and sat staring at the screen for who knows how long. So! Hot! Can't! Think! I am not a hot weather person. My favorite season is fall. I love sunshine and warm weather, yeah, but when the INSIDE of my house is 87 degrees (after cooling it down), that's too hot for me.

Anyways, this post isn't really about something, I just wanted to post some pictures of things I've been working on lately! I have at least 13 new projects to share, and I decided to spread them out over the next week or two. Here are the first couple things.

I made this zipper pouch for my niece's birthday. I LOVE this owl fabric! I have been hoarding it, and figured it was time to use some more. >>Here<< is the tutorial I used, in case you want to make one too!

These are some cards I made for Mother's Day and Graduation this year. I ironed some fusible web onto fabric and ribbon, cut it to size, and ironed it onto the card. (I pre-printed the message onto the card stock first) While the card was still hot I pressed it in a book to flatten it out. Then I sewed a border around the edges. I like using fabric for cards because of the texture it gives the card, and also it's a great use for those small scraps you don't know what to do with!

I'm going to go check on our homemade popsicles now, and get stuff ready so Jer can barbecue up some dinner when he gets home! I hope you all are staying somewhat cool today :)

Wow, it all looks great!
If it makes you feel any better, it did get up to 87 in my house today too. Which I agree is WAY TOO HOT. But mine was d/t the wood stove, not the weather! ;)

Oh goodness! Your sweetly wrapped package arrived today. I have made those baby shoes at least five times and never did I ever dream they could be reversible! How in the heck did you manage that? They are just perfect on the inside too......Can't wrap my brain around it. I have been looking at them for 30 minutes and still can't figure it out :) Taggie darling! And the socks....I have gone to your shop and looked at your sold monkeys twice. They are so inspiring. You need to make more! Thank you again for the lovely giveaway. And a big squeeze to Kade for picking me :)
