We didn't work on the table too much. Tim just cut the legs for it. I didn't take a pic.
Yesterday I was in my sewing room making an apron for Jacob.
For his birthday last month we bought him a little kitchen , I made him a little apron. He love guitars.
Thought this was cute. I will take it over to him today.

A few weeks ago we picked up some pallets. 4 to be exact. I saw on PINTEREST  you can make furniture out of them. Me I am thinking  hey great idea. ( But then I am not the one making it, hubby can do it)
Tim took 2 of the pallets apart,  stacked up some wood and dragged the other pallet in the garage. I want him to make a coffee table for the living room. All the years we been married (38) we never had a coffee table.
I don't really know why just never did. Seeing this on Pinterest sparked an idea.  These were new pallets. WE were at the mall and the Men's Warehouse was doing some remodeling inside. I went in and asked If i could have some of the pallets . They said yes. There were 10 or more, I wanted them all but Tim said 4 would be enough. We are keeping in the guest bedroom, I didn't want the rain to get them dirty yet. LOL

taking some apart
 making the top
 making a shelf 

The other side Tim will make a drawer. I want it to be rough looking.Will see what happens.I am anxious to see how it will look when its done.

Amy bought me a ruffler foot for my machine. it looks like a crazy piece of machinery but it is pretty simple.
you just place the fabric under and away it goes  makes your strip of fabric into a ruffle...
I didn't want to waste fabric so I added the ruffles to a bag.. You can never have too many bags when you shop.
The top ruffle is a double sided, its cute. Ruffled in the middle

While I embroidered the towel I thought I'd do a little bandana for Willie too.

I am on an embroidery kick right now. But Amy wants me to come over and make another purse.  maybe we will combined the two.

I embroidered this yesterday for my sweetie  Harley Davidson oil emblem.
he always carries a towel in his saddle bags to clean off the bike when he rides somewhere.. I figured  why not a Harley towel. He likes it  and that is all that matters.

Made these little for Dylan and Harley when the play ball. It gets pretty hot here in Texas, when they play ball  running around the bases. :)
I haven't used the embroidery part of the machine in awhile. I thought I would do a few things again.
As I was going thru some of my designs I found these   perfect for the boys.
I am getting better every day,  healing is a slow process. It still hurts to talk, smile or laugh, But its getting better. I must admit I am going alittle stir crazy   I haven't been out of the house.

New Pincushions

For the month of April in Liz Sew Along we were to make pincushions. Anyone that knows me I love pincushions. Of course I couldn't just make one. I made 2.
Amy came over and we got buy cutting and sewing. The first one is actually all hand sewn.
This is called the Catcus Blossom 
I bought the measuring fabric in West Texas when I was visiting Timmi.. cute  right?
Here is Amy  and Mine together
The second pincushion Amy called the 10 minute pincushion... She had hers sewn in a snap. I was decorating  that took Time. lol She couldn't decide what trim to use.

All 4 
Amy and I love how they all turned out.
