My Fun and Awesome CLASS!!

So, I thought these photos were lost forever, but alas, my super star hubs was able to get them back for me AFTER the photo card had been reformatted and NEW pictures taken.  Well, not ALL the pictures were restored, but enough to share with the you!  Whew!  That was close!  So, this was another class for Women’s Day at my church.  Last year we did notebook covers so this year I thought…”let’s add some fun!”  Applique of course!  This is also good for those who don’t really sew or don’t even have a machine.  Good for all!  I tossed around a bunch of ideas on what to applique and finally settled on a bag so the women could use it after the class and a bag is good for all women, right!?  I made this bag as my example…

That tree was so fun… and time consuming!!  But, it was worth it.  They give this bag away as a door prize!  I added a little pizazz to the back (yup, channeling the 80s with pizazz!)

I even did I little sketchy fun stitching like I’ve seen over at One Shabby Chick because I really want to be just like her one day.  It’s true.

Fun!  Right?  Okay, so here are some of my fun ladies… we have the girls that keep coming back because they love me and I love them…

Here was my youngest… she’s also one of my youth girls… LOVE her!

I had moms… I mean, STOP IT!  Look at her work with that baby!  Let’s just talk about that peanut of a baby.  SOOO cute and itty bitty… Love this girl.

I even had overflow.  One lady jumped in at the very end since I had an extra bag.  She worked on a chair because all the seats at the table were filled.  That’s determination, my friends.

Most people didn’t have time to actually SEW theirs on, but some worked FAST and got to it!  Look at her go!

It was so very fun!  So, I learned that birds are taking over the WORLD!  People love some birds… Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

And 4:

Some thought outside of the birds tho:

Just not very many…

Anywho.  It was such a fun class.  I really have to do more of this sort of thing.  It’s too fun not to.  I actually get to next week for the pregnancy support center in our area.  Yay!

Ta for now!

    Love how Paige is ironing with her baby in toe. Let’s not let my husband see that. It will only reduce the excuses I give my husband as to why the house isn’t always clean….
