BODENSEE & the beginning of a QUILT

This weekend we went to Bodensee :) I can't believe I have been living here in Stuttgat for 3 years and I didn't know about this magnificent getaway.  We just went there for a few hours but it is definitely worth going there for a weekend getaway. I have to thank Corinnea for the great pictures she had posted on her blog that made me want to ask her all about her trip.

Gio's New Quilt
The fabric is by Moda, Nautica & Nice.  Gio loves the ocean. He loves fishing, sailing, rowing, swimming anything that has to do with the water. I really liked this fabric and I thought he might also enjoy a nautica theme in his room this year.

NEW toy/top

Yesterday we went to pick up Ivan's/our new toy and a a new outfit how to be worn for the occasion.  I almost messed it up because I forgot that you had to iron the elastic for it to shrink. I cut it and sew it before I did that.  It almost didn't fit me.

T-shirts REFASHION to a dress

Photos were taken by my DH. I love him for humoring me and stopping on the side of the road today to take these pictures. I Love making things out of t-shirts. So fun and easy to work with. The best part is that it hides the mistakes really well.

So, I decided that it can also be a top :) How do you guys like my action? Lizy's action, cool huh :) I am just playing around in photohsop . You can do sooo many changes to your photos, it's incredible (LUUUUUUUV this program). I am learning so much and they might not be perfect and cool like the photographers but it is great fun. ;)


Today i finally got back on the "band wagon". I've been wanting to create something but just too darn lazy to do anything. Today, I was inspired by Kelly's beautiful skirt, loved it! I really digged the way she did the waist band with a t-shirt. So, with a little instructions from Kelly and Corinnea I ventured into my creative side. Corinnea had given me some t-shirts that were laying around in the shop and I had been wanting to do something with them. I needed to create something that was going to make mama proud, I hope she likes. I have two more left and I am planning on making something else that has been pondering in my head.

My son's gf is studying abroad in China and she took a picture with this terracotta chinese warrior. She emailed it to him with a little caption "so, the resemblence is a little off but lets pretend, k". Gio responded, "cute babe, in a Mulanish kinda way. That's why the caption is "A Mulanish kind of way" I wanted to create a fun LO, so I cropped the warriors face and added Gio's to the terracotta warrior's body. They both got a laugh out of this one :)

We went on a 10 mile ride last weekend to "Schloss Solitude" and we ran into this wooden gator, so we had to represent Gville. GO GATORS!!!! a must do trail!!! Great for kids of all ages and its covered under a beautiful canopy of trees. Very little sun unless you want to enjoy tanning which alot of people were doing..... I love the sun, but I have to be at the beach or the pool where I can cool off if I get tooo hot.

New LO's with some templates I created. I had seen a similar template on a LO before I left on vacation and I really liked it so I had to create my own. Kind of cool, right :)
