Throwback Thursday: Cameo Bits and Bobs

It’s Throwback Thursday!  Wheeeeee!  This is really more of a compilation post than a throwback, but all of these projects are at least three months old.  Also:  here’s where the “sometimes” comes into my blog name!  Ha.

So, I bought a Silhouette Cameo sometime around Black Friday in 2015…and then I let it sit in the box for the next three or so months because I was “scared” of it.  Story of my life with every new fun crafty machine (took me so long to crack the coverstitch machine out, too).

I finally got over that and am finally to a place where I have a bunch of fun projects to share…from super frivolous to very practical!

My first project was cut from a file I bought from the Silhouette Design Store; a Valentine’s Day card for my hubby in 2016, from red cardstock and red rose patterned paper.  I forgot to ask him to find it for me until last night (oops), so here’s a stock image from the the Design Store instead.

February Plans: Part Two

I shared my selfish sewing plans for the UFO retreat I’m attending, and now here are my unselfish sewing plans (minus a few which are surprises).

Speaking of UFOs:  today’s the last day to vote in the PR UFO contest.  I would be over the moon if you’d consider voting for my Christmas Quilt!

And now for the rest of my sewing plans…first up, what I plan to make for my sweet boy:  CHEEKS!  He’s good clothing-wise for the rest of winter and Wisconsin spring (which is all of like 3 weeks long), but needs some more stuff for Summer.

Here are my planned makes!  Links to fabric included, if they are still available.

We Come From the Land of Cheese – July 4th Edition

First off, Happy Independence Day to all of my ‘Merican friends!  Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Monday to everyone else.  :)

Here in Wisconsin, Mr. 5, Cheeks and I celebrated the 4th by going to a cookout thrown by my Ma and Pa (thanks to my dad for taking these photos of our threesome).

We also celebrated in another way…
