A Valentine’s Day Upcycle and Time to Meet the Parents.

Good Morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! I made a cute and easy upcycle for you yesterday to celebrate this Day of Luh-Uh-Uh-Uh-Ve. It took about 30 minutes and only required some spare red fabric and a cast-off little girls party dress. Let me show you…… I’ve had this stripped tunic for a while. It’s comfortable,Continue reading “A Valentine’s Day Upcycle and Time to Meet the Parents.”

A Dunkin Refashion; Follower Feature; and Some Sewing.

Dunkin Gets a Refashion….. Good Morning! The downside of taking the blog dogs running is everything gets filthy. The inside of the car gets filthy, the outside of the car gets filthy, and Dunkin gets filthy. I’ve been pretty good about washing the car but Dunkin is a mess. It is time for him toContinue reading “A Dunkin Refashion; Follower Feature; and Some Sewing.”

Tah-Dah!!! We Did It.

Our first sewingjourney is finished!!! Whooooo hoooo, whoooo hoooo. Remember when I said this trip could either be a disaster or the best thing ever? I think it was a little of both. Just at different times. I journeyed; I sewed; I survived. I also learned a lot. And, met a ton of amazing peopleContinue reading “Tah-Dah!!! We Did It.”

Suprise!!! We are going on a Sewingjourney…

Good Morning! Pack your bags, we are heading out on a real-live-sewing journey. You will need a jacket, gloves, possibly a raincoat, walking shoes and clothes that can get sandy or wet. Are you excited? When I first thought of this blog I thought, “What if I combined sewing, traveling and buying fabric?” (All thingsContinue reading “Suprise!!! We are going on a Sewingjourney…”

Week 6, Part 1: What I Made Between Hacking, Sneezing, and Napping.

Good Morning! I feel w-a-a-a-y better. I have put on real clothes three days in a row AND I went to town for groceries. The cupboard was getting pretty bare in the McGree house. Poor Dunkin had been reduced to eating Mitzie’s canned catfood…….which honestly didn’t seem to bother him. He steals her food everyContinue reading “Week 6, Part 1: What I Made Between Hacking, Sneezing, and Napping.”

Week 5 Part 3: Changing the World One Marking Pen at a Time–While Making Your Projects Look Awesome!

Good Morning. I am sick with a cold and feeling sorry for myself. A rotten little cold-troll latched on to me while I was editing the Marcy-Jacket update and I haven’t been able to shake it yet. At this moment, I am sitting in front of the computer wearing flannel pajamas, drinking coffee (I knowContinue reading “Week 5 Part 3: Changing the World One Marking Pen at a Time–While Making Your Projects Look Awesome!”

Week 5, Part 2, (or) How I Saved the Marcy Jacket from Self-Destructing in the Wash:

Note: I saw that the pictures from my last post didn’t upload for everyone. I think I have it corrected. If you want to go back to the previous post you should be able to see them. (Especially the picture of Mitzie!) Good Morning everyone! Spring made a pivotal move this week. Daffodils! Nothing saysContinue reading “Week 5, Part 2, (or) How I Saved the Marcy Jacket from Self-Destructing in the Wash:”

Week Five in Three Parts: Organizing; Marcy-jacket Update; and Changing the World One Marking Pen at a Time.

Good Morning!!!! It is a cold and blustery day. Spring is coming but Winter is letting us know it hasn’t packed its bags yet. Mitzie-the-Sewing-Kitty says it is the perfect day for curling up in a hatbox in the closet. In today’s post I am going to talk to you about making a change withContinue reading “Week Five in Three Parts: Organizing; Marcy-jacket Update; and Changing the World One Marking Pen at a Time.”

Third Date Time; or Doing Good and Feeling Good

Okay people, it is happening. Yes, you and I are “officially” on our 3rd sewing date.  Since it has been awhile since I dog-paddled in the dating pool, I thought I would ask Google for a little help.  I asked “What is the significance of the third date.”  She sent me to people that hadContinue reading “Third Date Time; or Doing Good and Feeling Good”
