WOO HOO, Bob made PJ Pants

Bob, my fiance, has always wanted to learn to sew with a sewing machine. One day while in Value Village he picked up a sewing machine. We talked with our friend Trailmix and she got us in touch with a store in Niagara Falls that helped Bob set up the sewing machine and purchased some supplies with it. A few months went by and he still hadn't used it. One day, Trailmix and her man asked us to go across the border with them for dinner and shopping, we went to Joanne's an awesome place to purchase material. We each picked out our favourite fabric. I picked PIRATES and Bob picked ROBOTS.

Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, he finally has completed the projects and here are the piccies to prove it. I LOVE THEM!!! I want to go shopping again and buy some different fabric.

Newest Projects

Sorry I haven't been around lately to post. I've been busy painting, geocaching and gardening. Thought I would post my newest projects I finished recently.

Above you can see a French Waiter I painted on an old cupboard door. I still have to choose a colour to go around the edge. I think he looks adorable and Bob loves him too. :o)

On Thursday night we had our last painting class for the season until Fall starts up. We took three pots and painted them with bricks, did shading, added windows and doors and voila, a lighthouse. lol We stuck it in the front garden and Bob made a walk-way at the front of it. It's pretty big if you look at the stairs beside it you know it is 5 stairs tall.

Last, but not least, a new addtion to my ETSY store - a mini Yellow Submarine painted Stained Glass Window. Here's the link to my store.
