Pillow and cake class.

I wish all these were pictures of sewing projects I have completed! I miss my sewing room soooo much, I just can't seem to get motivated to keep at things when it's set up in my bedroom. Before, even if I had 10 mins to spare I could go in and leave everything whenever I wanted and not worry about how things were left. I have so many things I want to do!!
Anyways, I did take a beginners cake class with one of my best friends since moving back and on the last night we we learned how to make roses. I never dreamed I could make these. With practice they will be even better!!

I finished this pillow just last night. I was supposed to embroider little swirly vines coming from the stems, but wanted to have it done before halloween. I was sorting through the christmas sewing I have to do and it's lot's...I better get motivated in my new sewing space!!! ;-)

My poor little neglected blog :-( Things have been so busy with the move, settling in to our house and all the "life stuff". I miss my sewing room sooooo much. I did set up my sewing maching in our bedroom :-/ Not much sewing has been going on but I did manage to finish this pillow for my very very VERY dear friend Jody. I forgot to take pics so she took some for me. She loved it so much, it's her profile picture on facebook, lol. Don't you love giving things to ppl who truly appreciate it!! I made her a little tea bag pouch and she went on and on how much she just loved it...she is the sweetest thing and has been such a blessing in my life which is why I made this pillow just for her!!

Nie Nie is going to be on Oprah!!

Oh my gosh! I knew it from one of her previous posts that she was going to be on Oprah. She didn't say what celebrity, but she did say she was in "chicago" filming talk show segments...and today on a oprah preview, it showed a peek at her story!! I saw the family picture, it was her!!
Okay, for the few of you who have not heard of this amazing woman you have to check out her story. I first heard of her and her husbands plane crash a year ago and have followed her blog ever since. I was so intrigued by her that I went back and read every one of her blogs she had ever posted.
According to it will be on Wednesday. A few other stories will be shared the same day as hers. Wow, her story is so worth making it to Oprah, she is so phenomenal!
Her sister also has a blog, she is an amazing, funny, witty..worth following her too! :-)
I'm trying to find my camera software so I can upload some pictures for blogging and I cannot find it! My other computer is stored away...I will get pics and an interesting blog up at some point!
