I promise I've been working on other things, I just haven't taken the time to sit down and write the posts.  I did use my insomnia to list some things I no longer need on ebay this morning.  Maybe if tomorrow is a sleepless night again, I'll write tons of blog posts... of course, I should really use my time to clean and organize... but that's a whole 'nother discussion...

In case you missed it, below is last week's entry, also My entry to  the appliances online  crafty creations competition. You can enter too at Lil’luna!

Knits used to scare me but now I truly love working with them, especially old t-shirts, so I've been looking forward to this week's challenge!  Even before Pinterest, we all searched the internet, magazines, stores and more for inspiration.  One of my favorite bloggers is Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy.  When I came across an enormous striped sleep shirt, I knew what I wanted to make:

Of course, wouldn't the whole outfit be wonderful in t-shirt fabric?  Good thing I hoard t-shirt!  Here's what I started with:
A pile of yellow scraps, a white maternity shirt, a long sleeved pink tee with pretty stitching that didn't lay flat and a huge striped sleep shirt that said "Property of Alcatraz"  um, yeah!  A few snips hear, a few stitches there, a bit of hot glue and a ribbon later and I'm pretty pleased with the results;


Now, if I could only make my kitchen look as good as Lindsey's!!!!!

Peace be with you,
