FUN in Tataville!
Last weekend Kimbo from Creating By The Lake came to visit Tataville. We had such a great time! We shared papercrafts and sewing projects that we have been working on. There was so much we wanted to share and even though we covered a lot, another weekend in the near future is a must! Below are a couple of papercraft items we made (treat bags and patchwork/quilt card)

We also managed to include shopping in our agenda and "OH MY" did we shop!!! Shopping for what you ask.....fabric, fabric and more fabric. Robert Kaufman/Darlene Zimmerman's "Little Darlings" was calling my name; I think we must have cleaned out the shelves! I have visions of pincushions, aprons, placemats, and of course quilts!

I also found a bolt of Vintage Batik/Rayon fabric that is absolutely beautiful; I plan to make a dress with this lovely fabric using a dress pattern from a class I took years ago. Among the many fabric "must haves" that were purchased, I bought some black & white oil cloth, perfect for the oversize utility tote bag patterns that I have. It will be my first time working with the oil cloth and I am hoping I will master working with it in no time.

My list of sewing/projects "to do" continues to grow by the minute, I will be a busy lil' gal in the upcoming weeks and cannot wait to share them on my blog when finished. The first project on my agenda beginning this weekend is to make/complete my "Annie" for the Aunt Pitty Pat's Sugar & Spice Swap that I am in. I am going to tea die the fabrics this evening.....SO EXCITING!!!
