Those crafty girls over at Sew Mama Sew are at it again with their Handmade Holidays!  Today is Day 16 – Gifts for the Crafter.

I wondering if I should attempt to make some sewing machine and serger covers…ummm, I’d have to make 6 for my regular machines…not to mention the industrial sewing machines…LOL.  Nah, then I’d have to embroider each machine’s name (you do name your machine like me, right?)…and I still haven’t named two of my sergers.  I’ll add this project onto my To Do List in Two Lifetimes.  Sounds like a plan!

Thank God it’s FRIDAY


Woo Friggin Hoo!  Tonight is Girl Night Out!  We usually do Thursday night, but I had completely forgot about my son’s book report due today I was too tired.  So tonight we’ll be doing some fine dining and hopefully some holiday shopping, too!

Tomorrow I have to go to another stupid kiddie birthday party…and while I’m there it might be wise to book my own son’s upcoming birthday party before I completely forget and my son is traumatized because his mother neglected him.

And I REALLY need to get working on two sets of baby gifts.  Hopefully I’ll get some sewing time in this weekend!

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!



  1. Those are amazing!! All great ideas.

  2. Lisa, I am SO impressed with the way you’ve searched out and linked to so many additional tutorials! What a fantastic resource (and a great time-saver)!

  4. fantastic resource – All great ideas , I am SO impressed
