Sewing 101: Shirt gets sacked

My awesome friends Jeff and Helen got me a rad shirt when I was pregnant with Millie.
I loved it.

Hey, no snickers about my crazy preggo photo.
Anyway, after the baby bump was gone, it was a less than flattering shirt.
I suppose that should have been obvious since it was specifically made for a pregnant woman.

Event: 3rd Annual Tin Barn Market Flea

I am usually a dollar short and day late when it comes to this event.

The first time, we were there the next morning and discovered that the yard sale was really just leftovers from this fantastic event the night before. The second year, I just wasn't on the mailing list. But this year... this year I was on it, and waiting with baited breath.

DIY Shade: Black Out Beaver

"Black Out Beaver"? It made you nervous, didn't it? Ha!

Okay, don't fret... it is all innocent.

Millie's nursery is fantastically light filled. I love that I rarely have to turn on the light in there.
Having said that, we are going to be moving Millie into her room, and out of ours. With summer days lasting much longer, the amount of light filling that room becomes a problem.

Solution - Blackout panel.
I decided to make a super easy black-out panel using items I already had:
An old airline blanket and canvas.

I cut them both to the size of the window, and stitched them together.

Artwork: Half frames

I picked this illustration up a couple of years ago in Smith Falls.
To get it out of the way, I just hung it as-is in its scratched green frame.

I sort of forgot about it until this last couple of weeks.
Re-discovered, I decided to do something with it.
