Playing with fabric

I was so excited to receive my first order through my very own shop here on this site last week!! I had tested and tested and tested everything before launching the shop feature, but there was always still that off chance that something wouldn’t work right… but it did and I’m so happy!! I’ve been […]

After taking quite a long break from sewing and doing anything at all with regard to Noby Designs {thanks to everything that has happened these past few months}, I’ve finally gotten off of my butt {figuratively} and opened the Noby Designs Etsy shop!!!

Busy work

Lately I have been trying my best to keep busy and not give my mind a chance to think about more than the task at hand… while I do like to think about anything and everything, really being able to think about anything right now is not a good thing… and so I have been keeping myself busy.

Breathe in, breathe out…

It has been a little crazy here these past few weeks. Since the beginning of September we’ve driven to Door County Wisconsin for a rained out Labor Day weekend vacation, Noah started preschool, I decided to start Noby Designs and then started sewing up a storm in order to get some bags ready for the Warrens Cranberry Festival, we drove up to the Cranberry Festival and last but definitely not least, Ray, the kids and I celebrated a very low-key and relaxing birthday (my 34th) yesterday.

Sew busy

For the past 32 years, Ray’s mom has been driving to the annual Cranberry Festival in Warrens, WI and selling her crafts. Ray and I have driven up there a few times in the past few years to help with some of the work on the last day… even little Mr Noah has been there twice.

New creations…

The sun is shining, there is a breeze in the air and life is good.

As you all know, my sewing machine and I have reacquainted ourselves over the past few weeks… well really I’ve used that time to get to know her a little better, since the machine I had spent the most time with stayed in Germany after my move back to the States.

Kindle cover {Foto Friday}

Today, while the kids were sleeping… well Noah was napping Abby was awake… and in between visits to the candy bowl (this is why I hate having chocolate/candy in the house!), I decided to finally sew a cover for my precious Kindle. I seriously love that thing and have been reading so much more since Ray gave it to me as an early birthday gift a few week ago. I saw a tutorial for a Kindle cover on Chica and Jo, but didn’t like how it opened to the top. I wanted to make one that opened up like a book, so I used that tutorial as inspiration and modified it to fit my needs… and I am sooooo happy with the way it turned out!
