Happy Monday!


Happy Monday!
Moe came over on Saturday afternoon and had fun with both pugs. They ran and played in the backyard even though it was wet and rainy. Unfortunately, it was too wet to bring my camera outside so I missed a cute photo op. I will get pictures next time though.
I had fun on Sunday sewing in my new chair with Emmitt & Bogart at my feet while Fred watched football. It was still cool and rainy and the perfect day to make some art.

Melanie and I are working on our fabric journals for Sue B.'s online class. I cannot believe it is week 3 already.
We are having so much fun that we signed up for another 5 week journal making class with Sue that begins October 31st.

Registration is still open if anybody wants to take the class with us. It is so much fun.

My journal for this week is almost done and I used some of the new fabric I showed you a couple of weeks ago. I will have pictures for you soon.

In the meantime, here is another pin cushion I made for my friend Peng Peng. She loved that photo of Emmitt on his green blanket, so I made a pug pin cushion with green felt on the back for her. If you would like to make one, it is super fun and easy. Here is the free pattern from Dear Fi.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Please let me know if you sign up for Sue's class. The lessons are fun, easy and very well written. You get a library of fabulous journals to make and a spring board of ideas for much more!

The class looks like a lot of fun...do you have to have a sewing machine or skills or anything? I didn't see any requirements. I don't have as sewing machine...!

LOVE your pin cushion! Super cute fabric!
