My client had a great sized little sectional that needed some sprucing up. She wanted a dark denim sectional with “jean topstitching”.
AFTER! I love the pop of color in the room. It adds so much.
There’s a thread that’s actually called “Jeans Topstitching” by Coats and Clark. Dual Duty plus. It’s a TON thicker than normal thread, so your stitching will actually stay on the top of the fabric and show more.
- My oldest son went to his first Prom a few weeks ago, I made him a bow tie and matching wrist corsage to give to his date out of my scrap ribbon and linen. I love that he’ll let me be a part of it, and I can be creative and make girly stuff.
2. We took the kids to Costa Rica last month. It was an adventure! We drove to Las Vegas to catch flights since they were half as much as from SLC, and we all know I’m frugal…so there you go. Plus we were hoping Logan was going to qualify for a race in Arcadia, the day after we got back to Vegas. Which he did! So we drove the rest of the way to California, so he could race. He got 9:22 on the 2mile race! Then we drove 10 hrs home the day after the race.
Traveling with big kids is so much more enjoyable than when they were little! We got to sleep in, read books, swim in the ocean at the same time–instead of momma staying on the shore holding the baby. I’m really cherishing phase 2! When did they get so big?! Two out of the 3 are taller than me now.
