This is an easy one seam tutu. That's all the sewing that's required one seam in the elastic. After you have measured the waist and sewn the seams together all that's left is cutting and loop tying. Here are the 3 colors i have chosen for my daughters. She is 6 months old. so her waist is pretty tiny. About 10 inches of elastic. I only purchased a yard of each color. I cut the tulle into 4x10 inch strips. Here is what it looks like on my little one. I tied a few scraps on a headband for a little flair.

It's not as if I have let the past year go by with out completing any projects. I have let the year go by taking little to no photos of the items that I have completed. I was simply to tired to take them or I just forgot. I finally got around to completing most of Elizabeth's nursery. The one thing that I hate I haven't gotten to yet is her Quilt. I have purchased the fabrics for it but I am having a problem with execution. Time gets interesting to manage with a 5 month old around. She is on my lap as I type trying her best to get to the keys. I was really fortunate to receive her crib from a dear friend that no longer needed it because her little one was ready for a big boy bed. Brinda was nice enough to donate the bookshelf so we didn't have to purchase one. I had been holding on the $15 chair from the local H4H Re-Store. I decided to recover it in a light grey Duck cloth. The side table I pick up at the local thrift shop for $7. I painted it and added the trim around the top.

Wow! It's been over a year since my last post. And this one will be short. My 11+ pound dictator is asleep in the next room and I am stealing this time from some important task....like the piles of laundry in my bedroom! I never got around to posting the nursery Items that I made for Maria. Here they are. I promise to put Elizabeth's nursery next. And soon.... Here is the Quilt for her little boy. The bumper. The crib Skirt and the last is the window valence.

This time of the year is so busy. I always seem to add more to my plate than what seems reasonable This year is no different. You would think that my erratic yoga teaching schedule, Etsy shop and baking I would be busy enough. But NO! I have to add a half marathon and dinner guest to the list! I also managed to add Bronchitis to the list! (running in 35 degree weather was against Dr's orders) Hooray for antibiotics! If you have visited SarenaVictoria.Etsy.com and thought that there were slim pickings then I am here to explain that the reason is below. Hillsborough Yoga and Healing Arts Center. They have scarves, yoga blankets and slings. And Very soon I will be adding legwarmers to the mix! Its getting chilly!

Most of the grain from Kit's beer brewing goes in the compost. But some of it goes in freezer bags or straight to the kitchen for "The Porter's" treats. I like to make them rather than buy them not so much because I am a crazy Dog lady! I'm so far from that but because a few years ago when we purchased the last few bags of treats from the big pet store the bag was full of those little res bugs! Yuck Out went the bag. and in came a friend with this recipe. Even if you dont brew as someone for the spent grain if you know a brewer.

Grey and yellow go so well together. When I see them I just smile. I made the quilt and received a request for a skirt to match. I think I may have to do these colors again. SarenaVictoria.etsy.com
