Per Her Request

"A purple dinosaur with green spots and blue spikes, Mommy."
No perfect, but complete.
A three hour sewing session finished just in time to attend "Zoo Boo" last night.
I guess I can't say I don't make costumes anymore!

Happy Hobbies!

The First Note Taker

I can definitely see room for improvement on this.
I'll probably piece the front section for future
note takers to add a bit more interest to the outside.

This was a gift for my husband's aunt and she loved it!

The pattern can be found here.

Happy Hobbies!

Cables and a Tiny Tale of Dinosaurs

I did it!
Cables are so much easier than I thought.
I know, I know, my pictures don't really show them all that well.
The finished project will photo better!How funny is this?
We tucked the little people in and came into the hall to see some of our friends heading out!
Wonder where Mama Dino is taking Baby shopping?
Target? The mall? It must be Barnes & Noble.
Oh to be a 5 year-old!
Happy Hobbies!

Getting the Hobby Groove Back!

Picking out patterns from these!
Thinking that Christmas is coming!

Starting this bag with yarn from my stash.
(A little knit-a-long with some work gals. )

Making progress on the cozy I started so many weeks ago.

Finally making this note taker from Pink Chalk Studio.

Fabrics from my stash.

More note taker fabrics options...

Making my first costume since a pre-made dinosaur for Little Miss was not to be found!
I was told, "purple dinosaur with green spots and blue spikes" Yes Mam!!

(Thankfully a gal pal was able to locate a pattern from her stash since I couldn't find a pattern anywhere either!)

Many other things on the list to finish and more to start!

Happy Hobbies!
