I Sewed!!

I have been wanting to show you these for about a week, but had to wait...they were a b-day gift one of best friends who reads this blog.  My Yankees-fan-friend who made these (we are Red Sox fans.) on opening day!  You don't see that mess, otherwise know as our desk. 

Now you must know that I am NOT a seamstress.  So this was no easy feat!  I had originally bought the material (from the thrift store, yes my friend knows) with the intent on making pillows for our couches.  I went over to my friend's house to help her with something and brought the material in to show her.  They matched her couches perfectly.  When I laid the material on our couches, they did not match.  Though they look good in the photos!  heehee

I even hand stitched the ribbons on so that you cannot see the stitches!  Insert, me jumping for joy!

I also found this beauty...for $4 at a yard sale.  I have already started working on it. 
Photos to come.
I saw this window pane one Friday while driving.  DH didn't hear me tell ask him to stop. 
I went back the next day and it was still there!!
Now I am on the look out for more!  This one's turning out so nice!
