First July Post (Still Kicking and Screaming)

I'm around. Got a couple of emails everyone concern and hoping all was well. Everything is ok. My girls and I are doing fine. My girls was gone for the 4th of July weekend and I had time to myself. Got to go out have a little fun with some friends. But, all is well. Been working on putting Nesa blanket together that is coming along quickly. I am giving myself until the 20th to have it completely done. More lovely ladies is sending more squares so as they come I just get weaving them on. Thanks to all the lovely ladies from the CVille Criskad (Christina), Titus2woman, Pineknott, Ms Danny and Mom w/a motif. Thanks ladies.

Here is the update on Nesa's blanket so far so good. So cute.:)

Still a work in progress

These 3 rows to the left I have to add on to the blanket

But, everyone get the idea on how it's coming along.:)

Also got to do me some sewing. I brought these plain white capris. I wanted to make me some white capris but, couldn't find no plain white double knitted fabric anywhere. Everywhere I went they had the printed white mixed with other colors. So I decided to buy me some plain white capris to go with the shirt I had in mind to make for me.

So I took some DMC floss and did a little stitching at the end and on the upper part of the pocket just to add a little pink to it.


So now on with my shirt. Here is the fabric I have in mind to make for my shirt. Don't know what kind of fabric but, it looks like some knitting kind of fabric that I fell in love with when I seen it at Walmart for 1 dollar a yard but, I knew I would have to wear something under it due to that you can see everything though the fabric. But, I knew I had a pink tank top at home that would look nice with this fabric.

So I whipped up my shirt see. (


Front, has a long V cut
Started on July 7, 2008
Finished on July 7, 2008
Took about 1 hour and a half or so to finish
No pattern followed just used a old shirt as I draft for this shirt

Yet another front view

And Back
You see how I did the half circle in the front and the back of the bottom of the shirt to give it more on my on style. Liked how it came out. Curves on my butt lol.:)

Also the purse to go with my new outfit. It has a zipper and some melt round chains for design:) Don't mind my mom's face in the corner of the picture.

Inside purse

Also since I am the main steamstress in the family everyone is hitting me up to do them something. My cousin liked the tinkerbell summer dresses I made my girls. My cousin wanted one also. So I whip this up for her.



Started June 9, 2008

Have I told you lately that you are my inspiration. I love the dress you made for your cousin...TOO CUTE. I have been wanting to sew for a long time but never really had the time to do it. Now, my grandmother is willing to re-teach me. So happy. I am happy you are all well. Still praying for Nesa.

I thought I commented already, but I can't find it. Oh well, I probably entered my login info wrong or something and didn't check it again.
Great top! I like that you embroidered the capris to match, too.
Can't wait to see what you make when you get your yarn and start that 'rollercoaster' of crocheting! I know what you mean about having ideas or projects you want to make, but no materials!
