Lots to do...

We had family come to town today, so I started my day off cleaning the house, doing dishes, mopping, etc. I started in on my girl's closet, but found a shirt that I really like, but was stained. I hate that. So... I got my sewing machine out and started to play. Who needs a clean house anyway? Here it is - inspired by Alexis! Thanks!
Somehow Moo managed to stain the bottom of the shirt, which worked out well for this project. Please understand I am not playing favorites... Moo will just wear what I make. I have some Bug projects coming up soon.

I took this brown fabric that I love, and cut it into 1/2" strips. I used two, but I don't know how long they were. I folded and pinned and pleated the strips into the shape I wanted - a nice little heart. I sewed down the middle of the strip, then did it again...
... and again... until I had reached the center.

Here it is all finished!
This girl is an adventurer! This is the best shot I got out golfing tonight... Love the Tetons in the background!
