Handmade Helps Out the Brushfire Victims

I am working on a little handmade goodness to send to handmade helps out. I have some dishcloths and a couple of scarves that didn't sell on ETSY, so I'm sending them to Australia to brighten someone's day. I'm also working on a couple of sweaters for stuffed animals to send along as well. If you have something you make that you would like to donate click on the link above or on the button on the left and get involved! If you want the pattern for the webkinz sweater to make some and send them, check it out on this post. The more handmade, the more love gets given!

February Project for One Project a Month Challenge

Here is the peasant shirt made from the blue and brown paisley fabric. I was worried about the necklinek, but it turned out great. I am not real happy with the sleeves, they could be more streamlined and less "dolman"ish. I think I can solve that problem the next time I cut out the pattern. I am learning as I go along. Really I'm a quilter, so maybe the next project will be a quilt project! :) I wouldn't have finished this one without the challenge to keep me going. And I finished just in time for the end of the month, whew!

Work In Progress

I am working on a shirt for myself using this fabric that I purchased over Christmas. I think this is going to be my February project for the challenge! I am getting close, but thought I would give a sneak peek at the fabric :) I am just in love with the pale blue and brown paisley!

a rose by any other name

I inherited this rose bush in our house that we rent, and I don't know a thing about roses! I don't know if I should prune it to make it bloom more, or will that make it bloom less? I don't know how to feed it or anything. Can anyone help me? What I do know is that it is beautiful when it blooms. I came home on a cloudy day to find this gorgeous bloom! It was a ray of sunshine for me :)
