Old McDonald Had a Farm EIEIO

This is the Book.  Minkie of Different Colors  and Pages are Separate so You can undo the knotted Ribbon Binding and wash the pages in the machine.



Here is the book in use

Okay, so she likes to read it upside down, it's her book, at least she likes it! Besides she is only turned 1.   It came in this bag...

Why waste wrapping paper if you can make a bag they can use!

Finished Old McDonald Had a Farm Today!....

The Birthday Book... Finished, but the Music Box attachment is in progress...

It will be finished tonight with barns and tractors and animals on Minkie with the farmer... and
two music boxes... One plays Old McDonald Had a Farm and One plays The Farmer in the Dell

Have to add a grommet and some more stuffing.

One side you push the Tractor and the other side you push the tractor or the barn.

Sometimes a work in progress takes time, for the extras.

Happy Valentines Day!

I haven't posted since my slicker cape and boy, I sure have been using it. Snow..Rain Rain Rain.... and it was perfect.   I love the 'Treasure Hunt Room'  at G Street Fabrics... amazing how sometimes the things I pull out of there are perfect timing...

What Have I been Doing?.... OMG... too many unfocused things....

I have been adding alphabet letters to the Old McDonald Farm Book.  So today, I hopefully will finish that up.  I need to deliver it on the 15th, so I have 2 Days...  I had a little trouble finding the right theme fabrics for some of the letters.  Today I am going to print the fabrics for the letters I couldn't find at G Street.  Hopefully that will work out.  I ordered some fabric transfer for use on my InkJet Printer and I have to do X H  maybe a new A J N O Q W- I got the fabric for the Y yesterday and then enclose the music box - attach and that project will be out of here....

So today I also have to do Valentines Outfits for tomorrow...HaHa... we will see how that goes.

Got some Earrings...

Fabric...but no time... so  Scarf and one of these earring pairs...


Remember this blog is what makes me have to finish things, and hopefully inspire you to finish your UFOs too.  I was in a hurry the other day and needed a quick chemise, so I grabbed an old half slip cut the elastic off and took the lace trim from the side slit and removed it sewed the slit together and put the lace as straps.  Hemmed it and put it on for under a silk blouse and away I went.  I never used it because it was too short, but upside down it was the perfect chemise.

I have to go ride my exercise bike and drink my 33 oz of water before I start the day.

Those are RED pants to go with the heart Earrings and Scarf
