Ice Pop Sleeves!!!!!

After yesterday’s pattern woe’s it was back to the drawing board. If I have learned one thing (aside from measure twice, cut once) it is this; When all else fails, especially your pattern, try again, adjust and make it work the way YOU want it to work. Such was the way with these sleeves. Granted, I did not get the 6 completed that I had hoped. That is what tomorrow is for. I do promise that more are coming.

The great thing about Ice Pop sleeves is they fit any brand of ice Pops(otter pops, etc) and they are lined with terrycloth fabric on the inside, cute cotton fabric on the outside(in boy and girl styles). They measure approx 6in x 2.5 inches. Just slide the ice pop in the sleeve to keep those little hands from freezing! They are completely machine washable

We? I mean ME!!!!!! I…uh, sure. At any rate, I am going to use this blog to post about my latest sewing/embroidery creations and some of the great meals/desserts I make. Why? Well, for a couple of reasons:

1. I love sewing. I can’t believe I never learned how to sew as a young person. My dad always encouraged it, and he had this old sewing machine that belonged to my grandma, that did nothing more than collect dust in our home. Both of my moms(birth mom and my chosen mom…another story for another day) are AMAZING with fabric and a machine. My late MIL made the most GORGEOUS quilts(I’ll post about her very soon) and after my friend Kathi taught me how to do a straight stitch, well, I was hooked and my MIL bought me my first machine(a babylock Xscape.)

I have not stopped sewing since. I love creating new things. My favorite projects are those that people randomly come to me and say “I wish you made______” and then I research, find and create what they ask for. It’s so fun.

I hope this site becomes a big motivator for me as well. I have so many projects waiting to be completed!!!!

2. Whenever I post on Facebook that I have made something great for dinner, or as a dessert, appetizers, etc I get comments like “Recipe please?” So this is the place to post all of that!!!! I’ll post my meal plans as they are completed too. Complete with links to recipes and pics as I take them.

So if you are ready to embark on a fun, and at times sarcastic journey with me, welcome aboard!!!! Please keep your hands, arms and legs inside the blog and remain seated at all times. Hang on to those hats and glasses, cause this here could be the wildest, most fun ride in the..errrr, wilderness????
