My latest addiction

I had to take a short break from quilting & sewing, it seemed like almost everyday and every evening I was sewing something or quilting something....that's killer to my hands, arms & not to mention posture, I'm almost 7 months along in this pregnancy now and the swelling sucks!--I know time flies, I feel like I just announced we were having our 4th :)

A friend of mine from my mom's group introduced me to hairbow making--BIG MISTAKE, we all know how I am when I pick up a new hobby/craft--I go crazy! and that I did, a trip with a couple of my gal pals to the ribbon outlet and major purchases here and there from Joann's and Michaels has created a ribbon explosion, but the organized maniac and neat freak that I am couldn't let it sit that way for a very long time. All of my ribbon now is organized and separated into types and colors, all loose ribbon is rolled and I bought a perfect caddy to take along with me for when we all get together again for more hairbow making.

It's such the perfect side hobby right now with quick results and so very much needed with everything our family is going through. I love it, I'm just trying to perfect my techniques and make my bows look somewhat decent. Right now, I have two little girls with very little hair, happy to help their Mommy and model her finished bows!

Beautiful ribbons for beautiful little girls. It's good to have something to work on. You have enough ribbons for a lot of bows and other pretties...

Hope you are feeling ok! And getting enough rest!

I love the idea of making hair bows, how neat. Unfortunately my kidlets are too old for them now, sigh.

You lil' ones are gorgeous!

Oh no, looks just like my collection. Well, it started as my daughters collection and I inherited. It is very addicting. but oh so much fun. I don't have little ones to make bows for, but I sure enjoy making them to sell at local shows.
