Baby quilts I made last night and finished today for two of Teah's friends who are having their baby showers together Saturday evening.  I also Monogramed the monkey quilt but it was in red and you would be able to see it as well.

These are a few more pictures of my fishing trip:)  We got in the water right before sunrise and it was beautiful.  I caught around 25 fish including a black drum, red drum, puffer, pin, spot, whiting, and something we weren't sure what it was.  I had the best 3 days and I thank my daughters boyfriend Andy for taking me out and I can't wait until we go again.  Even being in the tail of a tornado that we found out later with rain, lighting, wind, hail and waves in the waterway 3 to 5 feet and you couldn't see in front of you and two or so miles ahead of us to the landing dock..  Andy didn't have one bit of fear in him as he was calm and I kept calm.  I guess that's the Army in him and two years of being around me:)

I guess you can tell I haven't been sewing.  Andy my youngest daughter Teah's boyfriend of two years came to the beach to take me fishing.  We have had a great day and we are going back out tomorrow.  Hope we catch some big ones:)

I'm not sure why this picture didn't show up on my blog below as it shows more of what I've been doing

I've been busy making pincushions,angels,tutu's and pacifier holders.  The pacifier holders are made from flowers,beads and bows.  They have been so much fun to design.  I'm planning on making 20 of them all different for the craft fair.  My husband came to the beach Thursday so I've not been able to do a lot of sewing.  We did have several cookouts with our friends and took our boat out fishing without catching any but we had fun:) Have a wonderful Sun. and I will be visiting your blogs today,can't wait.

I forgot about the 8 Ikea containers for $1.00 each at the Goodwill.  Took some close ups of  the other items.

I love Craigslist!!!  I took a different way to the beach to go look at this listing and I'm glad I did all of this for $34.00.  All of it is new in packages.  The buttons 26 packs sells for $2.29 each at Michaels.  The flowered ribbon is what I'm using on my items I'm making and I'll show you later as I was so excited to show you my deal of the day:)

I went home for a few days to help my Dad out as my Mother died last Aug.  We have been busy canning green beans and beets. I will be heading back to the beach with some new items I've been making.  Can't wait for you to see them:)  Thanks for all you sweet comments and I'll be going to your site seeing all the wonderful things you've been doing. I love seeing your items as it pushes me to get busy!!!  Take care and will post tomorrow.

This is the seashell fountain I talked about below.
I thought I'd share some of my favorites at my beach home.  Each summer I try to do a redo to a room and last year was the living rooms turn.  I painted the blue chest and put white as the background to make the color pop.   I added the seashell fountain this year and I've really enjoyed the way it sounds so much that I bought my Dad one:)

Well this is some of what I got done today.  Love my little girls outfit and headbands.  Wouldn't you want to write with a flower pen?  Selling for $1 as I have about 22cents in them.  I love the box that I have the Tooth Fairy Pillows in:)
The top picture are items that I'm making over.  The first thing was to redo my sewing chair to use at the beach. I've been sewing on a project that I've debated on for a while now. I'll hopefully finish it tonigh. Off now to volunteer:)

These are the quilts that I finished yesterday.  I had fun making the one with the dogs on it.  I always start several quilts at one time and then finish them at one time why I don't know.

I finished my sign today as my neighbor screwed the buttons and scissors on and had this steel stand he was going to throw away.  A couple of weeks ago I showed 2 skirts that I was going to make over.  So here is one as I made it unto a pillowcase dress.  I love taking something and redoing it.  Tomorrow I'll show you the quilts I finished today!

I thought if I'm going to take my crafts to a craft show I would need a sign.  So I got busy and came up with this.  I just finished painting it now I have to glue it down.  Now tomorrow I will start my sewing :)

I just had to share my finds for the day on my way to the beach. The bottom baby set that I don't need but bought as it was new and only $2.00. The cream thing the lady said was her Christmas tree skirt and that it was Victorian and for a $1.00 I bought it.  The top picture is my finds at the Fancy Fllea.  For $22.00 I bought these neat wooden containers to put my craft and sewing items in at the Southport Craft Fair.  I also bought the small quilt for $3.00 to put inside the wooden crate.  I do have to do some work on the quilt.

This is the pieces to the quilt that I've been making for a while.  I haven't been able to find the backing to match it as the colors are always off. When I bought the bathroom curtain I loved the way they added different textures to it. I found a small pack that matches the material off of Ebay that I can add other textures to now. Now that the bathroom has these colors in it and looking at some of your blogs I really want to finish this quilt and go to my Thrift Stores and find things that I could also put in the bedroom that are timeless and pink:)  I can't wait to go back to your blogs and see what else motivates me!!

I redid my bathroom in Shabby Chic and I love it.  Michaels, yardsales and a little paint and it's almost finished. I'll sew some tomorrow but until I get back to the beach nothing will be finished.  I have taken so much of my sewing to the beach it'll have to wait.
