It's time...

If only weight loss were this simple! It's time for me to get on 'a plan'...again! I've tried 'em all...had success with many, just can not master the 'keeping it off' part. Wish me luck.

The same, but different

Kitchen Towels with Split Damask Design
 I mentioned in a previous post that customers often ask for items to be the same, but different. Here is a perfect example of how that is achieved. Here the same designed was used for both towels, yet a simple change of fabric & thread colors make them look very different. Do you have a favorite? I like 'em both!

"Alike, but different"

Child's Tote/Church Bag
When cutomers order multiples of an item, they often tell me they want them 'Alike, but different'. Well, Honey, with  my stash of fabrics, thread and ribbon, that is not a problem here in the Basement! Made these precious Church bags for twin girls...what a sweet gift! Would love to stitch up one for you!'s%20tote%20with%20design.htm

Good stuff

Weather was crazy around here last week....lots of rain {lots & LOTS of rain}. We still managed to get in some good boat/water time at the lake and Mr. Sun totally faked me out on Saturday...hiding behind those clouds and BURNED me up! Nothing in the medicine cabinet was doing the trick, so I picked up a bottle of Unburn {great product name & description of what it does}. Really is good stuff and it really worked for me. Hope you won't need it this summer but if you do it's sooooo worth the $8

Child's Apron

Today I'm working on a set of aprons for my friend {and great customer!} Beth.  She selected "Berry Sweet Alphabet" and gave me creative freedom to select the fabrics...really happy with the finished product. You can get one for your little kitchen helper/artist here:

It's raining AGAIN today. Gotta love the dog days of summers in the South!

Five more days....

......until school is out for summer. Well, five more days with students, then a couple of teacher work days.  I have been in 'survival mode' for about a month now, so please pray that no one gets hurt in the next few days! Just teasing {maybe}....I can do this!
Split Pineapple Design

Finally caught up on orders today and took a few minutes to stitch out a little something for myself.  'Split' designs are the newest embroidery tend and chevron fabric is so popular right now...they work well together & I love the results in this project!  Wouldn't this kitchen towel make a great bridal shower  or house warming gift?  At Basement Bags there is also a  split watermelon and alphabet design available. Stop by and check it out!

White Bibs & Hooded Towel
Same is true with  white baby bibs or hooded towels...the possibilities are endless!

Today marks the end of my Spring Break-So  now it's on to living for June 9 & summer vacation.
