It has occured to me recently that I bought 90% of my latest wardrobe from Amazon! The Amazon Fashion has really stepped up it’s game and I have been loving it!
Over the summer of 2020, I was furloughed from work and without a job to go to and dress up for, I came to the relization that I had fancy clothes for the office and a few “casual” shirts for the weekends. But since I was no longer working and have 3 young kids – I NEEDED casual clothes! So I bought a few to make me look stylish!
All these shirts/blouses are all UNDER $20 each!!!!!! I ordered a Large in all of them to they fit a little relaxed so I would be more comfortable and all of them were perfect!
If you found me because of me recent YouTube video, welcome!!!!
I started English paper piecing a year ago and I absolutely loved it!! And still love it! I’m planning on making a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt that will be completely paper pieced and I invite you to join the journey on my YouTube series in my EPP Vlogs!!
With your fabric is easiest to start by cutting strips.
Cut all pieces to 3″ strips and then use your 1.5″ hexagon paper to cut. Use an “add a quarter” ruler to make cutting easy!
Then – we glue! Make sure if you’re doing a Grandmother’s Flower Garden you choose 1 fabric to be the center of each flower. I am using yellow. I’m also using a layer cake for the petals.
once you have all your hexes glue basted it’s time to start prepping your flowers. I chose to keep all my colors the same so each flower is the same color. when putting them together I kept them in their color order cuz as you can see the orange and the salmon are pretty close in color. If I was doing this in a dark area I might get confused and mix them up.
Now it’s time to start stitching. First you’re going to sew two pedals together and then another two and then another two. This way you should have three sets of two petals and then your one center pedal
Then things get a little difficult when you start sewing them all together You’re going to have to fold some hexies in order to get perfect stitches.
From where information and details on how to stitch them completely together go visit my YouTube site!
Hey everyone. I haven’t done a podcast episode in over a month. The reason? Well I would record my episodes during my morning commute to work. And beginning on March 21st I believe I started working from home and therefore moving my commute and moving my time to record.
And now I have been forwarded for my job for up to 4 months and even though I do have more “time” I am constantly hanging out playing with and taking care of my two children which are three and a half and two years old.
When the pandemic began I wore an original song that I called appropriately Pandemic.
The song was released on my podcast at 4:30 on March 30th. Which is today 🙂 here’s a link please take a listen and enjoy. Let me know what you think. Also know that this is the really edited version that was produced through GarageBand. Well it’s probably overproduced but hey it was fun.
I mentioned this back in day when I talked about my real deal self-care practice. But now I want to go into a more in depth talk about why I love a certain body wash.
