Chenille, Tea Dye and Sewing Machines...Oh, my!!

Good evening Ladies!! Over the weekend "Big Daddy" and I went and did a few of my favorite things. Not only did we visit a local Craft Fair, Friday evening after work. But then we headed back out Saturday to a Apple Butter Festival in the quaint town of Kimmswick, MO. Some of you may be familiar with Kimmswick, it is the home of 'The Blue Owl', a very Y-U-M-M-Y restaurant that was featured on the Food Network.

Needless to say, after returning home from "Prim Heaven", I was inspired to take a try at making some of my own prim goodness. So, after work today, I went to Joann's and picked up a few supplies. I bought some chenille, embroidery floss and couple other supplies for future projects.

So, when I got home I dug out "Big Daddy's" birthday present to me....
Isn't she a beauty girls!?!?!?

Anyway, this is where the "Oh,my!!" part of my title comes into play. SEWING IS HARD!!!!! Especially, circles!! I was trying to make some Snowman Ornies, and let's just say my first Snowman's head is a little lop-sided. Poor guy!! But thanks to "Big Daddy ", and his awesome sewing abilites Snowman #2 was MUCH better!!

Pretty sad whenever your husband is better at using your sewing machine than your are...LOL!!...Oh well, practice makes perfect right!?!?!?

I can't wait to see your snowmen, either!! What a great present! I got a new sewing machine a couple of years for Christmas; it does everything!! It pretty much sews by itself!

Take care,
