Recyle and Reuse

I had been throwing out the top hems of the sheets that I use for my rag rugs....
I finally got an idea after feeling guilty about wasting the hem
and here's what I came up with.
I made this large tote bag out of the hems of various sheets to make the bag
and the pocket.
I used a piece of sheet for the handles and an old pillowcase for the lining.
It would make a cute "sleepover" bag....since it's made out of sheets.  LOL!
Anyway, it will make a great tote for dirty clothes, groceries, clothes shopping or whatever else.
Next thing...
I have an idea brewing in my little head.
We have this old door sitting in our backyard and the glass is broken.
I was thinking if I took all the glass out and brought the door inside
that I could use it as a........
get your imagination going.....
quilt rack.

I think the weathered look of the door and the old handle would be cool
to put my grannies quilt over. 
Do you see it??
Stand the door up and put the quilt through the window space.
Earl thinks I'm crazy, but  I think it will look really cool!
Recycle and Reuse and make some cool stuff.....
that's what I'm talking about!

The Start of Another Scrappy Quilt

I've started another scrap quilt.
I still need to quilt the other one, but I started on this one anyway.
I have so many ideas for when we move.
I want lots of scrap quilts and rag rugs in the house.
I want to surround us with happy colors and memories.
we just need to find a place to move too!

The Flower Girl and the Dress I Made for Her

My granddaughter Leigha was Lexie's flower girl.
It was hard to get her to smile,
she looked adorable!

I made Leigha's dress out of a wide prepurchased headband, a couple of regular prepurchased headbands, tulle, ribbon, daisies and a slip made out of a layer of muslin (so she wouldn't itch, organza and then a thicker tulle.
The whole dress and headband cost me about $22.00 to make.
Not too bad and she looks so cute!!

Here Comes the Bride

My beautiful daughter Alexis
got married last Saturday.
 Alexis and Jake

the ring
The wedding was so nice and I had such a good time.......
too good of a time if you ask Ezie and Mallory.
I visited, drank, and actually danced.....and danced.....and danced.
I DON'T dance,
but I just let go and danced and had so much fun!
Lexie was beautiful and I hope it was the day of her dreams!

Top of Scrappy Selvedge Quilt Done

I finished the top of one of my scrappy selvedge quilt last night.
The kids liked it and I do too!
I'm probably not going to have time to put the backing on for awhile
and I'm really nervous about doing that part
I'm so excited to get it done too!
I have a couple more quilts in the works and hopefully
I'll have some done before winter
so we'll have some nice new cuddlers!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
