Tornado damage in Luther Oklahoma

We went to a wedding over the weekend and partied like it was 1999. As for sewing, I did get my silk crepe steamed and ready to cut!

We had a tornado Tuesday and I have at least 50 downed trees- my old barn is finished. I thought I published this post Monday, but I guess I spaced out!

Let’s see what’s going on last this week.

Gold and torquise glitter nails

Can you believe I have nothing to show you?! I couldn’t find motivation to sew anything this week. Here’s a fun fact though. My sister in law is a nail tech, and she uses me like a Guinea pig. I get to try out all the crazy nail designs…and post them on Instagram. I have a cool, sewing inspired manicure to show you soon- you’ll love it.
