Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

This is my 150th Post.. I can't believe I've had 150 plus things to talk about... !! Kind of makes me crack up!!

Last night I stayed up til about 2:30 in the morning crafting a gift for my Mother in love that I want her to have BEFORE Christmas.. since the gift pertains to Christmas... I have no pattern.. no rhyme or reason.. it's something that I came up with... the "pouch" for the CD is the same McDonald's fry pattern that I cut the bottom off on.. and then sewed it shut... She loves my Christmas CD's.. so I thought I would burn some of them and share!! I will probably add more embellishments.. but for now I had to walk away from it... Ü

Ok.. Now before you peek at my sewing project.. PLEASE keep in mind I am not a huge sewer.. I'm pretty much self taught... and I'm NOT perfect.. but I thought of this idea and I wanted to go with it.. I had this bunch of fabric that I was just going to toss because I thought.. "Where or how would I use this????".... and the light bulb went off.... Again.. I Have no pattern...no rhyme or reason.. this is just it... and you experienced sewers.. HOLD your chuckles please!!!! Ü While I was sewing this I had to battle my cat too.. she ran off with the needles.. and string.. ahhhhhhhhh she was like watching a little child!!!
Its a toothbrush holder and a tube of toothpaste for travel.. I want to put floss and a cheap timer in their for my friends daughters... you know the rule 2 minutes for brushing!!! No EXCUSES!!! Ha Ha Ha Ha....

And this is Emma Lou Who ( her name for two years now.. LOL LOL) She was quite tired after all the sewing!!
