Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

FNSI success!

Finally managed to get something done and it wasn't felt food~ I finished some Christmas I Spy bags! Two will go to Kal-El for his birthday this coming Wednesday; might save the third to see how these two hold up!

FNSI~ take two!

Okay, so signing up for a FNSI when I knew I'd be running a rehearsal and I still had a set to finish wasn't the best plan. Fortunately, there are two sew-ins this month so let's try again! I'm in the middle of a felt food frenzy that began last month when I started making felt food for Kal-El's Christmas gift. He's getting a play kitchen and his mommy wanted some felties for him to play with. She's a little swamped, having just had a baby and all, so I asked if I could make them. They are a blast! I started with a sandwich but quickly went to cookies because, well, yes. They're COOKIES!
A few so far:

Orange slices:

Two slices of bread:

Chocolate sandwich and chocolate chip cookies:

Since taking these pics, I have added apples, cheese, lettuce, bacon, two pastas and cinnamon rolls, which I may re-do because I put waaay to much icing on 'em. Today I have to put the food aside so I can work on pj's for him and Leia. Do you love Christmas sewing as much as I do?

FNSI December

If ever there was a month that needed a Friday Night Sew-In it's December! Who's done with all their gift-sewing? Oh, you are. You ARE? Well, ppthhhht. Then you can take some time for yourself (hmmmf!, make yourself some cocoa, and sew some holiday stress away at a Friday Night Sew-In tomorrow, December 9 OR December 16! Yes, Heidi and Bobbi, the super hosts of the Friday Night Sew-In, are having two FNSIs this month to help get those projects done!
Visit Heidi at http://handmadebyheidi.blogspot.com/ ( click on the title of this post) to sign up. And have a cup of cocoa for me!

'tis the season to be jolly. And busy.

Even when I'm not working on a show; I'm trying to catch up on all the stuff I wanted to do when I was working on a show. And then I run out of time and it's time for a new show! In the midst of Christmas crafting and gift-making, cleaning and decorating, not to mention putting together the Christmas program for church, it's time to start working on "A Flea in her Ear", a wacky farce set in the 20's. Should be fun!
I never showed the finished bathroom project, did I? I told you (somewhere, some post) I never remember what I say I'm going to post in the future. Let's all agree I have enough trouble keeping up with the present; I must stop saying what I think I will do with this blog and we'll just go with that. Rambling.

Anyway, the bath. Tore off paper- resurfaced walls. Didn't plan to deal with the floor but really had to.

Before: the worst wall:


The window wall:


(The curtain wasn't done yet but it is now!)

Behind the door:


The floor-please forgive the stubby toes!
Before; with filler where tiles were damaged:


Fresh paint and wallpaper scraps livened the vanity:

I din't take a picture of the tub area because I didn't do anything to the tub area, except some trim. The shower curtain is anchors and sailboats; it nicely matched the curtain and decorative towels we hung on the back of the door. And it faded it it's first wash so it has already lost it's fresh, clean, new look. C'est la vie. I like my new bath! But I kinda miss the rubber duckies.

Or maybe not.
