A Little Break... Back to Work!!!

My Bald Man and I took a little trip on the holiday weekend to Tellico Plains.. now growing up in Athens, TN I have been to the falls and river up there often.. but Bald Man, after living in TN for over 20 yrs had never been!!! Ofcourse we had to take Pac, he loves a good road trip! This is at the overlook going up to Indian Boundary Lake ...

Down by Tellico river... Bald Man just had to 'test' the water and see how cold it was... yeah.. its pretty cold,,, mountain rivers typically are.



Bald River Falls....
I am the first to admit we do not take advantage of living so close to such a beautiful area... many beautiful natural areas are so close to us ! I mean, in K town... we are so close to the Smokies,,, not far from lots of North Carolina mountain lakes.... we really should get out more and explore close to home.
I used to enjoy hiking a bit... but after almost stepping right on a huge copper head up in Coker Creek I stopped... that was 16 yrs ago. I think it may be time to 'let it go' haha!! and hit the trails every now and then. After all, its great exercise!



But now back at the homestead.... my work... (joy) this week is to make Bald Man a new shirt...
so far its all cut out and the collar is almost ready to go on. This is a super easy shirt to make.. Hopefully I will get it done tomorrow!

Remember, all you who sew out there, sew for your man! He will buy you more fabrics and machines!! hahaha!



I've had several embroidery projects I've wanted to get to...
The first one is this thrift store pair of cropped skinny jeans ($5).....

I finished the leg embroidery today and did some Sashiko stitching on the pockets... I'm also adding a brocade detail to it.. and maybe 1 more thing.....






Below...
This is now on the back of my short sleeve hooded knit jacket,thrift store find, ofcourse ($3)
A pink camo skull!!!!! Done with reverse applique', the little flower was done regular applique style! LOVE IT!
And its not done either.... I need to add something to the front and I want to line the hood with cute fabric (probably pink camo... shocker!)



Both these designs are from Anita Gooddesigns.. Urban Boho and Asian Fusion,
her embroidery cd's are my favorites! I need a few more from her collections!





Everyone have a blessed weekend....
God is so good to us....
Whoo Hoo! we're getting lots of rain today.... much needed rain!

What a beautiful area for a trip. I grew up in Virginia. Those pictures remind me of the beautiful area. Yes, I do need to sew for my man. He'd love it. Nice embroidery designs!

Glad you both had a great time. The waterfall is beautiful. The embroidery is gorgeous. My guy's favorite item is shorts.. so far 5 made... he loves them.

Angela, thanks so much for the compliment. When I read your post about eating clean - I thought "no way" could I give up sugar. Well, I've given up MY sweet tea - (which was probably 3 or 4 times sweeter than anybody else. I haven't had it in a month and a half. I just need to get more consistent with the exercise.
