Big Bad Betty

My new machine now has a name. BIG BAD BETTY ! She has her decal and I am just waiting on more oil in her motor before I get her up and running full time. Off to the NAPPA for oil. HEHE

I was trying to work on my sling but my machine that I just had serviced and picked up on friday crapped out again. WHY? I have 17 left to do.

Check out my etsy shop for fresh listings

November already

November 9th already. Where has the time gone?
I'm working on my baby slings for the local baby boutique.
I'm just about finished my secret santa gift for one of my fellow etsian. Can't say who. I have to make a quick trip to the store for gift wrap and containers to sort my craft supplies and the extra's are going to destash in my etsy shop. There are a few personal projects I would love to be working on but I must prioritize especially this close to Christmas.
Well that is all for now.

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween.
We went to the mall trick or treating crazy busy but much safer as my kids have no concept of street safety. They honestly think they are invinceable. ( did i spell that right?)
It is taking forever for the kids to wind down. One has managed to cover himself in a layer of gum. Funny I didn't know you could do that with gum.
Looks like my post will be cut short now that I have to scrub gum off a kid.

The new machine

Well I've tried and tried and I have a problem with either the way i'm threading my new machine or something. The top thread keeps jumpiong out of the needle. How frustrating.
Everything else seems to be running smoothly so I guess I will call the repair guy Friday.

Well I guess I will have to work on something that does not need straight stitching right away. Out comes the serger. Now what shall I make? Off to figure it out.

I forgot my blurb on my shop at etsy and my etsy team.
I have 2 shops on etsy this shop has minagerie of items and my new shop is going to be more geared towards fun grown uppy things. That is once I am a bit more organized. Hopefully you can take a peak.

I am a member of the alberta team on etsy. So full of talented and uber friendly people. I love them all.
Thanks everyone for your help and ideas.

Psssst! Alison I will get to Calgary for coffee soon.


Hi everybody,
My very own blog.

Well I had 2 custom order handbags yesterday and had to whip out to buy a new iron and a new sewing machine. They just don't make em like they used to. It was a fairly smooth outting until we hit Giant Tiger. My Darling son pulled the fire alarm. The fire truck came and we had a good talk with the fireman, and the store manager, and several employees and customers. I have to say that they were pretty good about it. There might have been an employee or 2 that were upset but that was it. Oh and a very upset and emberassed mommy. Oh well with having 4 boys i'm sure it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Well off to get all of my new stuff set up to finish my orders.
Wish me luck
