Monday, busy weekend helping kids.


Here is some of the ribbon sewing I have done, and I have many more to go, but I am off this for a while and onto the camo wedding sometime today.  I do have four zippers and 6 pairs of pants to hem before I can start on the wedding.

The infamous pile of camo and orange.  Yikes.  This includes:

1. hemming camo wedding dress

2. attaching camo ribbon to veil

3. altering two orange bridesmaid dresses (too small) must put in inserts

4. make 4 camo vests

5. make 4 orange vests

6. alter flower girl dress

7. possible third bridesmaid dress

We spent the weekend helping kids at the new house.  We work and work and I still don't see much progress.  But the carpet layers are coming this Friday and they are having hardwood laid in three rooms, so it is hard to get things unpacked only to repack to move them.

I did manage to get up on cupboards in kitchen and clean the filthy, dusty, grease laden cupboards.This house was built in 2013 and I don't think those were ever cleaned as I found saw dust from builders under the grease.  I went out and washed off all the front porch furntire and cleaned the front porch well.

Then we moved and moved things trying to organize the garage.  Everything into piles, then everything to one side, then set up shelves and then fill shelves, then everything back to other side and set up a shelf, everything back into garage.  All the while trying to keep two babies happy.  Hubs loaded his truck with garbage and boxes to the limit and took it to recycle this morning,only to go up and do it again and he still isn't home.  Nate took an entire truck load to Goodwill and they will certainly have to do much more of this if they are going to fit into this house. It was a crazy exhausting day.

Daughter is bringing the kids down tonight while she teaches, so Nate can paint with out distraction. So I will get Kelsa and Schmill cuddles.  Can't wait but I need to get to work.

I just am so happy with this bookcase, I can't even tell you how much I love it.


I also love this TV cabinet, I got from my daughter.  I love being able to cover up the TV.

This is what it looks like open, I just love it.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. Oh I love the bookcase and the tv cabinet!
    I don't love the camo wedding stuff. I'm sure you have done a lovely job sewing it, but ick.
    Enjoy your snuggles.

  2. Oh! I love them as well! Madison stocked some camo items in her boutique, and would you believe they were some of the first items to sell?!?!? Have a cozy evening, my friend.

  3. Those are both nice pieces. Enjoy your snuggles.

  4. What a gorgeous TV cabinet!!

    You do have a lot of sewing to do.

    God bless.

  5. Grandson Gavin was born in a Tulsa hospital and I still remember a 3 generation family in the waiting room with us, they were ALL dressed head to toe in camo. The grandma even had a camo purse. And it wasn’t even hunting season.
    Lucky you getting sew all that formal camo and orange.

    Your new home is looking great!

    1. Thanks Rhonda, not the first camo wedding and won't be the last.

  6. I hope you show a finished photo of the ribbon project!

  7. I am sure the bride and groom will be thrilled with their camo/hunting vest wedding. And one day years down the pipe they will look at the pictures and probably wonder what they were thinking.
    Your house is really shaping up!

  8. Oh wow, I like that bookcase and tv cabinet too. We recently put up some shelves and they are just so great for getting stuff up off the floor and helping to organize stuff. You are a busy lady, Kim.

  9. I wish I had your energy Kim. The book case and cabinet are lovely!
