Another Trip to RoundTop

I had another fun and eventful trip to Round Top. This time my Mom and two daughters came along for the fun! We stayed at my favorite B&B, Wellspring. I didn't cover as much ground as I usually do but I still found a few treasures. We enjoyed eating the delicious "Mae's Burger" at Scotty and Friends Restaurant in Round Top. The weather was great and the Blue Bonnets were gorgeous. On Saturday night we attended the "Leftovers" party and we enjoyed the beautiful displays at this store. It is such a treat to shop at Leftovers, if you have never visited their store you should make plans to do so. I also purchased the new book about Round Top and all the activities and places that are so interesting in Round Top. I'm still reading and looking at it but it was well worth the money. Have a wonderful week. I know this is short but I am really tired from the trip and I have to rise early and work and then I have a softball game out of town tomorrow night which means a late bus ride there and back:(

In the Hoop Applique

I am on Spring Break this week and I have been learning a new technique on my sewing machine. I heard several people that I know talking about "in the hoop" applique embroidery. So I decided to try my hand at it. I have made several bibs and onsies using 'in the hoop". I am posting some pictures of some of the onsies and bibs.

Have a great week!

More sewing

I am in the middle of softball season so I am not getting the sewing time that I would like to but I finished a few items this past weekend. I love this fabric! The colors are so springy and fresh. This is a diaper/wipes mini bag with burp pads to match. When things slow down a bit I plan to make alot of these sets. I used fat quarters that I already had on hand. Linsi and I also made these adorable little shoes. You can get the free pattern for these at this website They are easy to make and so cute. All is going well here at home and we only have 49 days until school is out. It's hard to believe another school year will soon end. Haley and I are planning a trip to Italy and I am so excited. I have never been to Europe and this is going to be a nice experience I'm sure. We have several tours planned and of course we have included time for a little shopping! Have a fantastic Friday!
