Sew and Tell Monday ~~~~Go CARDINALS :)

OK, first things first! I cannot believe the Cardnials are going to the Super Bowl. I am over the top excited!!! I am a native, born and raised in Phoenix. There arent alot of us around. Especially my age. Everyone is from somewhere else here. I have felt so bad for the Cardinals for so long because even at home games people were there to support the other team. If they were playing Dallas, everyone in the stadium was wearing blue, Green Bay and all the cheese heads were there. It seemed nobody wanted to support the home team. Granted they have not been very good,,, but ya still support the HOME TEAM! So maybe, just maybe now they will get the home town support they deserve. OK, off my soapbox, it just had to be said. lol

This week I have been sewing and trying to come up with some new things. I have sewn this artist apron. Its perfect if you work craft fairs. I have several more colors and styles coming. I often see a fabric walking through the fabric store and something just calls out to me. I walked by this adorable pink taffeta with ribbon sewn on it. I thought, that looks like cupcake frosting. Well, why not, so the idea just popped into my head that fast. Cupcake throwpillows. I love the way it turned out. I will also be doing them in a pretty shade of blue and lavender. I have another project about done, but got distracted by the game, so I will show you that later. Have a great week, and happy creating...........until next time...gail PS: I have no idea why my apron is upside down! lol And stay tuned, the next blog post is number 100 and a give away. :)

Hi Gail, I love the apron! I was just telling my DH that I wish I had an apron for when I work. I get glue and glitter everywhere and I can never find my scissors. The pillow is really cute too! Have a great week and woo hoo for the Cardinals!

Hey buddy, I thought of you when the Cardinals won!!! Great cupcake you have there. It sure won't last long. I have been having a bad case of turtleidus! Plus I just got my laptop back from being repaired. Been thinking of you too!
