Some Sewing

Saturday, June 28, 2014


Here is the outfit I made yesterday for my grand daughter. I will make a few more outfits and hopefully she can start school with them. She will be with her mom's for 2 weeks of vacation time for her mom and then with us 2 weeks of my sons vacation time. So she won't be wearing the ones I make her for at least 2 weeks.
When the kids go to school it is not a month before they start out growing their clothes.
I read an article about not buying kids new clothes for school. Just shoes underware, etc. and school supplies.

Here is the gown I made for my mother in-love. It closes at the shoulders so easy for her to put on with bad shoulders and not being able to raise her arms too high.
If you want to see how I did it check out

If you do not get the craft page just look under title and you should see the different blogs and click on it. I think it just goes to the craft page.

PETRIFIED WOOD I FOUND

Sunday, May 11, 2014


I found the largest piece of petrified wood Friday evening.

It is hard to believe that this large piece of petrified wood was just a small piece that I saw. The rest was underground. My dear son used his shovel to get it out. I actually thought it was'nt petrified wood at first. Was glad I had my son come and look. They were all excited that I found such a large piece.

Wired Rocks

Wednesday, May 07, 2014



Here is some of my wired rocks. I am making them as necklaces. Just have to get chains for them. I am brand new at doing this. Was showed how by a friend.

I used some of my honey's polished rocks. Some are petrified wood pieces and red jasper.


We spent the day looking for petrified wood today. This is one of the areas we were looking at.


This is a ravine up ahead on our way back to the road. No we are not on a road but we are in a 4X4 vehicle and it is not too sandy in this area.


This is the ravine closer up. My hubby said I should go out and stand on the boulder and get a picture. I laughed at him and said no way. I have problems with heights, so he was joking with me.

That was our adventure for the day and my new hobby.

Nina

SEWING MACHINE AND AN APRON

Tuesday, April 29, 2014



My sewing machine quit working right about a month ago. I got about 15 years out of it. I felt almost naked without a sewing machine. When I got married it was not even a week after I had to get myself a sewing machine.

My church family from Concho, heard that my sewing machine had quit. They sent me a sewing machine that they found. I was so over whelmed at their generosity. They knew that I sewed a lot for the grand kids and myself and even hemed some of the congregations pants for the. I now live about 30 minutes away from all of them, but I still consider them a church family.

I ended up getting to see how the machine worked and I sewed myself an apron.

I am so excited to have a sewing machine again.
