Sewing Party

Julie came over today for her very first sewing lesson. It was so fun to have someone to craft with! She's a natural and the eye pillow she made is gorgeous. We had a little photo shoot--she was supposed to be looking relaxed but she just couldn't keep from giggling. I like the smiley pictures better anyway.

This week has been kind of funky--Julie picked out some funky vintage sheets for her eye pillow and Amy posted about funky potholders. So I've come up with something a little bit funky to give away on Monday. That's right, Monday is Sew Mama Sew's May Giveaway Day! I'm so excited. Their giveaway days are always  a great way to meet new people and to have a chance to win some cool things. There's still time to sign up to give something away if you're interested. 

Hope you have a great weekend! Got any good plans? K and I are helping my mom with some yard work tomorrow for a belated Mother's Day present. She's got quite a garden this year. I plan to soak it all in. I miss my garden already (but not my neighbors). 

Be sure to stop back here on Monday for the giveaway!


  1. What a cute photo session. It looks like you had fun! My daughter (4) had a sewing playdate on Monday. Her friend came over and they made pillows. It was so sweet. I would have posted pictures but I would have wanted to ask her Mom's permission and that would have required telling her about my blog! You know, I still don't have a giveaway for SMS. I have been too busy with the extra potholders. Ideas???

  2. Sewing parties are such fun. I've had a couple with Lia that included homemade pizza and a couple bottles of wine.

    Love those vintage sheets. And I'll check out this giveaway. Good tip!

  3. I would love to have someone to sew with. But I usually end up sewing late into the night -- when most people are snug in bed or engrossed in television. You are so lucky to have your sister nearby.

    Happy gardening this weekend.

  4. a sewing party sounds so fun!!!! love what she made
