Painting, Sewing, and Painting

We had a slow weekend and I got a lot done! So proud of myself! We repainted our entire room...yay! (By the way, sensuous gray was the winner.) Now, I have furniture to repaint. Some furniture to get. Wall decor to buy. A chandelier to re-finish. New bedding to buy. Frames and shelves to paint. And the list goes on....
I will be posting pictures soon as I get things done. Piece by piece. Rome wasn't built in a day.
Today, Aubree ( showed me how to sew! I have been wanting to learn for awhile and since my sweet husband decided to buy me one I better learn how to use it! We spent a few hours chatting and sewing and it was fun! Here is my first try:
I just love it! Here is a close up of the rosette. I added the button after I got home.

I can't wait to start making some more dresses and getting more patterns to work on. I hope the sewing part improves the more I make!


  1. That is so adorable. I'm your newest follower. I'm throwing my first link party today (Monday) it would be great if you would stop by and share your project.

  2. You really did great for your first dress! Can't wait to see you take off. Once you start you will never stop. :)

  3. Thanks Aubree! You were a great teacher! :) I am already wanting to sew some more!
    Great Jamie! Thanks!

  4. Thank you so much for joining the More The Merrier Monday Linky Party. Be sure to come back next week. I look forward to seeing more of your projects.
