Is My Blogging Mojo Making a Return?




Oh, my goodness!
I may have figured out 
how to create a little blog post
from my iPad!

Before I left Texas,
I redressed my daughter's table,
upcycling a pair of my son-in-law's jeans.




It was time to start packing things away for the summer,
but I wasn’t quite ready to stop sewing.

I freehanded the curve onto a large piece of paper,
and cut it out to create the pattern.
A little walking foot quilting,
and voilĂ !

Today, I’m off to the Massachusetts shoreline
to revisit my old stomping grounds.
Hope I can embrace the changes
that I’m sure have occurred 
over the years.
I’m not big on ‘development'.

Enjoy your day!
Stay sweet!
XO

So nice to see your post today! (Good for you to figure out Blogger on an iPad. I haven't been able to.)

Awesome use of the jeans, very cute table topper, and placemats. You haven't visited Mass in a couple of years....I am struggling with all the changes just down the street that have happened in the past 2 weeks.

Welcome back!! What a neat idea to put those curves in the placemats. They make a fun design around the table. Have a lovely day! I hope you will find some places unchanged—or at least familiar enough to spark some pleasant memories.
