Happy Halloween!!

One of the places I visit frequently, is the blog of my friend Maria. This is the link if you want to spend a nice time watching her beautiful projects. It was then, while admiring her creations , that I saw the beautiful pumpkins she performed.
I decided then, that I was going to do some as well for my home. I can tell you one thing, and it is  that after having looked at many sites online for a good tutorial, the tutorial that Maria used to make her  pumpkins, is the best!!! Look how nice result, and are really easy to make.

If you want to see the beautiful pumpkins that Maria has made, they are here.
In her post you will find the link to the tutorial.
The only thing I did different was to add a few  wood beads, here I show the photos
that I took, while I was doing the pumpkins.


Meanwhile I continue with my preparations for my next show, I'm taking pictures and
then will come the tutorials that I will share with you soon.

I'm linking this to Skip To My Lou.
Happy Hallloween!!
Have a happy sewing day!!!

Welcome to my first exhibition show!

Last week I spent almost most of the day in front of my sewing machine, I don't know how many hours I've spent sewing, but they were many. It all started on Saturday October 6 when I received a message in my mail, in which I was invited to participate at an exhibition show. I nearly fell off my chair, I have always dreamed to participate in an exhibition show but never thought I would do it.

The only problem was that the show was taking place the following Saturday, on Saturday 13 October, which left me only a week to sew. The exhibition was in benefit of people living with a
hearing loss, my parents are deaf and one of my 4 children, the yougest also suffers from hearing loss, it was for a good cause and I liked the idea of getting involved in the deaf community of my city.
In this publication I want to show you some pictures that I took of my stand and photos of my projects.The positive side of this adventure was the experience that I had lived, I loved being there and I could practice my language of signs. I was invited to attend an upcoming show on November 17th which I immediately accepted.

These are some of the pictures I took of my stand

I made these totes, they are really simple, unlined, I wanted to add the embroidery of letters LSQ what it means: Quebec Sign Language.

I also made some wine bags for gifts, what you see is written in sign language and it
means, Christmas in French ''NOEL".
My intention now is to create a tutorial to show you how to sew the wine  bags  and
how to make the  totes, do you think it's a good idea?
In the next picture you'll see two dolls, these dolls were already made long ago, there was a time in my life when I did a
lot of them and sold them. These dolls have a storage space inside for recycling
I shared with you a moment that was important to me, I hope you liked my creations.
Now I go back to my sewing corner, I have many things to create and also several
tutorials to write for you.
Have a nice  sewing day!
