My Summer Adventure in Sewing

This past December I bought a sewing machine.
With NO IDEA how to sew.
Now when I say no idea, I mean it.
I didn't even know how to tie a knot in thread.
Let alone sew on a button.
Good thing SSG Army Pants was taught how to sew in basic training.
So with this Summer this is what I am going to do.
I am going to learn how to sew.
With a little help from my friends.
I am going to call this 'My Summer Adventure in Sewing'
First I will show you some projects that I did last week.
I took an image off of my Silhouette and made this owl pin cushion.
I made this ruffle pillow too!  I am pretty excited that I actually did this!  But I want to do better!
My goal by the end of the summer is to make another pillow like this and see the before and after difference!

{Oh Summer... How I Have Missed You}

Warm weather has finally hit Utah!!!
Yesterday was the hottest day of the year here at 81 degrees!
It was nice to let the boys out in the back yard and let them play in the water!
My babies getting hit by the sprinkler!
Kids were busy, and SSG Army Pants was busy cleaning up the yard.
So what was a girl to do?
Craft, yes that was how I was going to take advantage of my quiet time.
So I whipped this up.
I would like to introduce my new door hanger.
Just in time for the Fourth of July.... uhhh like a month away.

Maybe one day I will make new curtains for my front door.  Maybe...
