Mountain Camping

I made another trip to Washington State to see my childhood BFF, Laura, again. I only had a couple days off from work so it was an action packed long weekend. There was a day in Seattle, happy hour(s) at her home, a Jeep road trip for mountain camping in Leavenworth with her husband and a tubing trip down the rapids of the Wenatchee River. LOVE THIS LIFE!

Reconstructed Western Shirt

Cool temperatures and rainy days has me spending a little free time in my sewing room. I found inspiration in a reconstructed western shirt tie top I purchased in Canton Texas and then I made my own from one of my grandfather's snap shirts.

Flea Market Basket/Cart Liner

For $2 in two large burlap coffee bean sacks and $8 in two yards of fabric I made a liner for my flea market basket/cart.  You can buy plastic liners but I wanted something more uniquely mine.  I just measured the sides allowing 1/2 inch for seams, added inner pickets, ties at the bottom and tabs for the top.  Now it's ready to hold some great flea finds in style.
