Embroidered Fleece

Gail is really into things monogramed so what better way to practice was to hop over to Walmart and pick up a few fleece pullovers.  They are a bargain at $9.95 and they are cut nice so they don't fit to boxy.  She will wear them under a vest and look super cute.


The font I used is called Vine and I purchased it from RiverMill Embroidery, over on Etsy.


I love projects like this.  They give me the opportunity to try out something new to me that is "crafty".  I learned some new things while doing this project while also learning some new techniques with my embroidery machine.

I just love when a project comes up like this!  There are many monograms in my future for sure.

Cooking Club and some new Headbands...just for the perfect someone!

I had the pleasure of attending the Fresh Mama Cooking Club today that my friend Lil has started.  You can find out more about Lil and her wonderfully healthy recipes, made using locally grown and organic fruits and vegetables.

What a wonderful group of ladies.  We made granola, egg cups and veggie soup.  And today was an even more special get together because we were also making these goodies for a family in need in town.  It was so nice to know that we were helping out someone in need.

Look at these ladies....

I have to say when Lil tasted the egg cups she was very impressed with Holly and I.  Holly is the lovely lady two in from the left above.  We kind of took liberty with Lil's recipe and she said we did a fantastic job.  


Today was also fun to see Lil and Donne showing off their new embroidered headbands.  They say it all!  Lil feeds us all good and fresh and Donne KICK OUR BUTTS...well I like to say ASS but that would really not look that professional on a headband would it?

It was a great day and I am so very thankful for all these ladies and the friendship we share.  Can't wait till next time.

Color Combinations: Red and Blue, Turquoise, Robins Egg, Fire Engine Red

I am getting the itch to paint another piece of furniture and have been looking at color combos that I am liking lately.  I totally love the red and blue combos.  And seeing I have a red stove and accents in my kitchen, and blue walls in my dining room I thought it might be nice to start tying everything together.

Before I start showing them off I have to show you this White Chocolate Rocky Road candy image I found on Pinterest.  It started the whole color combo fascination for me this week.  Of course it is not my blue and red combo but doesn't it just look divine?  YUM!



Here are some of my favorites.  


Love the red coffee table and side table.  The accent pillow with all the colors is just what I want to do with fabric on these two funky octagon chairs Gregg found for me years ago.  They have a total 70s vibe but need to be re-upholstered.  Anyway that is where I am going to bring in a colorful fabric.


The blue I am going for is more of a turquoise or robins egg blue.  Can't decide.  I want a happy vibe, colorful and playful.  Kind of looking for VINTAGE meets IKEA.  Weird...huh?


See, here is more of the lite blue (robins egg) that I have on the walls in my dining room.  I also have an old hope chest that I painted a few years ago in a mustard yellow.  Love that in the room.  But, it needs to find it's IKEA counterpart.



See here you can see the blue walls with the yellow piece.  It needs red I think.








So, that is it for now.  I have not quite found the right match, but hope to keep at it until I find something I am satisfied and totally in love with.

More later on this....
