Wordless Wednesday -

In jail at Appomattox Court House, VA. This was taken back in 2007. This was a really neat place to take a tour of.

Skirt Re-Fashion

I had this skirt tucked away in a drawer, because it was stained up. Being white the stains were very hard to remove and it just got to where I didn't wear it anymore, because of the stains. I was at Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago and saw this material on the 2.00 rack and decided to grab a couple of yards and re-vamp this old skirt of mine.

First I measured and cut it off with my rotary cutter and mat.

I then measured the material, sewed it together, and sewed around the top twice to gather it.

I pinned the right sides together and loosened or tightened the gathered part as needed to make it fit the denim top.

I sewed it up, turned it right-side-out, and voila!

A total re-fashion of an old, stained up skirt!

Crochet Angel

Hello Everyone! I am sorry it has taken me so long to post. I started a part-time job and it has kept me really busy. Between homeschooling and working, I haven't had a lot of time for much of anything else. I have done a few projects lately though. I am intending to share them with you in the next couple of weeks.

I recently have been crocheting a angel tree topper and just finished stiffening it. Here is a picture:

It's my first time to work with this small of a yarn. It was very hard to keep my tension, so it isn't the most perfect crochet job, but it's the best I could do. I am hoping to make some smaller ones for ornaments. I hope I improve as I go.
