a little of this and that

I tried to play in the sewing room
I got just enough time to pick these 5 charms for 
another zippy bag and cut them in half
now to find a color for the strip and strap
then sew them up
I have a purple loving niece who would like this one I think 

here is a green one I pulled together

and beige and black
love this combo too
I figure if I cut these out hopefully I can sew them
by the weekend.....at least get the strips sewn maybe
that is a start

meanwhile, back at the ranch, other projects are cropping up
remember the yard sale last year? well we are
having a party for residents this July
Summer Fling- with a beachy theme
soooooooooo  needed some beach pails and supplies
at the dollar store. these will be washed and 
filled with "fish and chips" (one will have goldfish crackers
and the other some potato chips" using the shovels as scoops
cute huh?
there are other cute ideas like sanddollar cookies- just a 
round sugar cookie with 5 almond slices to form the star
cute cute! I am looking forward to getting more
done for it.....Pinterest has such great ideas!

and some Christmas shopping got done. a deck of cards and
a plate done in photos for someone
they came out awesome! but not sure if they read my blog
so cant show right now

there are still pants to hem, and books to cull out of the quilt library.....

and flowers to hot glue into my wishing well.
this will take time as each flower needs to be glued to the stem first
THEN I can arrange them in the well for outside.

never a dull moment around here........
