Milly Mouse's Halloween

Meet Milly...she lives in the pumpkin down the road. With fall coming she's thinking of not renewing her lease on this great one room home. See... someone already painted a face on the front door.
This is a Cherokee onsie that will fit a 18 to 24 mth old. Milly has been machine embroidered on the chest. I've added a little ruffle a little off the waist to give it a dress look.
I guess I better stop and find something for dinner tonight.

if my head...

Well, if my head wasn't attached... I'm usually very careful about where I leave my keys now a days, because I would lose them so often. You guessed it, lost them again. Just spent 45 minutes looking for them.
Please don't tell hubby...he swears he's going to get me a clapper for my keys.

Do you lose things, too. What?


P. S. I'll get back to business later today, got to find another place to hide my keys when I come back from the post office.

this is scary!!!

Hi guys,
I've got the second site up, kinda scary, but exciting. My third site will only be for supplies, which I have a lot of. Since I'm featuring more of a clothing line all the other things not in use will go up for sale. I do have patterns listed on my main site but not for much longer.
Huey G will remain small right now while I build some more stock but look out. Things that will listed are
  • bows
  • headbands
  • ornaments
  • shoes n booties
  • patches
  • and anything else

Just watch out. Does this mean I have to quit my day job?



Lace Ornaments
They can be used for Christmas, weddings or a baby's room. Come up with any use you want. I will be opening up my new website on etsy with these ornaments. The website will be www.hueygaccessories.etsy.com and should be up sometime this next week. So far I will show these ornaments plus some butterflies and flowers.

Keep on the lookout for the announcement.
These ornaments will be able to be ordered in colors and quanities.
Will be great for the person who has everything.

to much space

sorry, to much space in the last blog. Ruth

Good Saturday Morning...

Good morning,

It's a beautiful morning here in Plano. Sun's out, not to hot, not to cool. I'm setting outside a little this morning reading when I get a call from hubby saying look north. Asking what I need to look for he says you'll see. Well I did see. Coming up over the house tops is a low flying ballon heading in my direction. Suddenly it disappears and I'm wondering where it went. The ballon had turned east and was getting lower and lower. Didn't want to miss the chance, went and got my camara, started taking shots of the ballon when it reappeared, as it landed behind the strip center across the way.
Ok, you caught me. I'm practicing placing photos on the page. Still don't have the hang of it but I'm sure I'll get it with A LOT of trial and error. Subject was fun and not something I see to often.
When you place pictures, do you load them first then write around them? Need some hints.
go get you some coffee...

hubby brought home dinner...

Well I didn't have to fix dinner tonight, my hubby brought home dinner for us. Wasn't that nice of him. Ruth

it's Friday and what am I going to fix for dinner...

I really should be doing something else today but I've been enjoying reading all the blogs showing up on etsy this morning.

After looking at all those great blogs I see that mine needs a lot of work. What's the old saying
"one bite (byte) at a time". Some of the things I'm seeing is all those add on ideas, giveaways and just great info.

Gotta scoot, I have a conference call to take (thought I was on vacation) in a few minutes.

it's Friday and what am I going to fix for dinner...

and what did you do on your vacation...

I know that is the question I will get next week when I go back to work. Well... I've done plenty this week. Clean the house, shop for food, go to lunch with friends and dinner with Scott a couple of times this week. But the main focus this week was to get myself in gear and get things made for my store on etsy.

I wanted to try out a few new designs that has been on my mind for a while. Like lace ornaments for Christmas. I've done the machine embroidery for 4 differnet ones; angels, balls, star and snowmen, but finished the hand sewing on the angels last night. That's what is shown in the pic's. Now to decide which of my sites I'm going to put them on. The angel I've actually been able to make a smaller size, so we'll see.

I've gotten another Halloween Pillowcase Dress made that is a layered twirl in orange and black. The dress is 100% cotton in all our favorite patterns. Pumpkin and ghost, moon and stars, candy corn and the ever favorite bats. I've used 5 different patterns for this dress and the most fun is the lace buttons that I made from cute embroidery.com. I was amazed as how pretty they turned out. With the new laws going into effect in Feb 2010 I needed to come up with something to replace all those buttons that I use on my projects.
Well I'm still playing and learning how to do the blog thing so stay tuned.

Hello all,

Just taking a few moments off to get on the computer to see what is going on. Today I have been working on embroidered lace for Christmas ornaments. So far I have made angels, bells, stars and balls. There in the starch bath right now, I'll take them out and lay them out flat to dry in a couple of hours.

I'll be adding some fall playsets to my etsy sight later tonight. Maybe tomorrow I'll add some Christmas things.
See I've already got a start with the picture to the right.

a little bio

Hello, my custom clothing for children sell under the name "fairie wings and pixie dust". I have been sewing for many years and have enjoyed sewing and creating in many different forms. Clothing for children is now what I focus on but have made and sold products for the home as well as the toybox. I do take custom orders, so please don't hesitate to contact me for a special order.I do have a full time job that I fully enjoy but as with most folks, look for a creative avenue to "just make me happy". Just being in a fabric store makes me feel like I'm in a candy store.
Thanks for reading and getting to know me.
We've just recently moved from Houston to Plano and I'm still unpacking those millions of boxes that followed us up here and have decided to downsize my inventory. So look often as I will be selling a lot of different sewing supplies.

Just to get started

Hello all,

This is new to me so be patient. I'm trying to make a place I can be creative but also make my mark in the industry. What industry? Custom clothing for children. Stay tuned to what show's up in the new little while.
