Hi all! Its been a while! Okay, its only been over a weeks since I last blogged and that was on my oldest niece's birthday of all days too! She is a turkey baby. Next year she will celebrate her birthday on turkey day again. This happens every six years by the way. And yes, she actually was born on Thanksgiving. And yes, we all fasted that day instead of feasting. She was worth it though! As for this years feast it went well. As I mentioned my husband and I host it, and we arranged it to be a covered dish type of shin dig. Meaning since we host, we provide the turkey, mash potatoes, gravy, and table settings. Everyone else in the family is assigned a dish to bring. It does work out rather nicely and it cuts the expense and work by a fraction.

Just taking a peek in on an Isaboo moment. She was playing with my daughter at this moment, and when Izzy is in a play mood watch out for those claws! If you might have noticed my daughter is kind of hesitant on trying to pet her head, so out came the hoodie strings instead!
Hope you are have a wonderful Sunday!

Have you ever bought a pattern and regretted cutting into it because you either lost or gained weight and loved the item you made, or if you had a child's pattern and they out grew the outfit and you wished you could still keep making that outfit but you can not because you cut into it. Not to mention that the pattern cost over $15.00 and now you really regret cutting into that pattern because your BFF who is a different size, loves that same dress too! Well this is where freezer paper come in to save you from that moment of regret for cutting into that said pattern. Freezer paper has to be one of the most economical products that a sewist will ever have among their abundance of supplies. Freezer paper is not only purpose-able for tracing out clothing patterns, it is also good for applique, and stabilizing fabric to run through a printer for easy made templates. Today however, I am going to show you how to save some money on the extra pattern spending by tracing a pattern with freezer paper with no light box needed.
