Pictures and an Introduction!

So, my sewing class is now complete and I have finished my pajama pants! We shall save that story for a little later.

For now, I wanted to show you the pillow that I made.

I was really happy with it!

Now, moving on to the pj pants. As I was wrapping up sewing them, I happened to notice how long the crotch area was. I just went along with it, and got ready to try them on, in order to determine how much to hem them. I slip them on, tighten the draw string, and sure enough that crotch was entirely to long! :) Needless to say, I had to re-measure and get them just right.

While I think the pj pants are cute, I do not know that I will be strutting my stuff in them. They just don't quite fit right, but I was proud with how they turned out and the fact that I made them. I learned how to use a pattern through making them, so hopefully other things can be made as well.

Here is a picture:

I think they are pretty cute!

So, those were my sewing class results! Highly enjoyed the class and can't wait to sew other things!

Now, as far as the cooking and baking portion of the blog goes.

I haven't been taking many pictures of what I have been cooking, but most everything that I have made lately, has been coming from this amazing magazine:

I got a subscription to it for Christmas, and I LOVE it! I highly recommend this magazine. The recipes are easy, and HEALTHY!!! So, I put my stamp of approval on this magazine.

Well, one last little thing. I wanted to introduce you to a member of our family. At first, she and I did not get along. She felt as though I was invading her space and taking her man, and while she still thinks I am taking her man, I don't think she thinks I am invading her space.

This is Zoey:

Now, for those of you who really know me, you know that I don't usually enjoy cats. In fact, I don't really like them at all, except for this one. I must say, I like her. I still don't know how to act around cats, because I am more of a dog person, but I am starting to like her. Ok, maybe I kinda love her. :) But other cats, no thanks.

Well, that is all for now!!!

Way too long

Hello my friends,

I am so sorry that I have not updated since February. I do send my apologies.

I have started my sewing classes! I really enjoy it. When I was little I always enjoyed doing stuff like that, so I am glad that it is carrying over into adult-ness. I have learned so much!

I have made a pillow, and I must say, it looks pretty dang good. :)

I will post a picture soon.

We are now working on a pair of pajama pants at the moment. I am interested to see how they turn out. I have a feeling they are going to be uneven and one leg will be tighter than the other, but hey, maybe a new fashion trend will start?? You never know these days...

Speaking of "trends," I go into Wal-Mart to do my usual Tuesday night grocery shopping and saw quite a number of folks who felt as though their "trends" were the hottest thing around. But there was one in particular, that I found to be most exciting.

For one, the person didn't look like they had any pants on because the shirt the person was wearing was really long. Next, the person was wearing tube socks with the feet cut out so the person could wear flip flops.

Hey, if you feel comfortable, go for it, but my feet would be cold.
