The Wednesday Showcase

April 26, 2017   /   byRhonda Buss  / Categories :  Feeds
It looks like the storms will soon be rolling in to Chicago. My Gracie absolutely hates rain, or being wet in any way for that matter, so she is safely sitting behind my chair, tucked into the corner. When Little Bit was still alive, and I would take the dogs to the beach, Little Bit loved everything about the water, chasing the little birds, running through the water. Gracie would be in the dunes, as far away from the water as she could be. God forbid her toes got wet! :)  

As I've said in the past, the Wednesday Showcase is typically reserved for those who are following my blog. Just a little way of saying thank you, thank you, thank you :) But, there are times when something comes up that I just have to share. Such is the case today.

If you don't know Tracy of Tracy's Sewing Studio, then you are in for a big treat! Not only is she an incredible sewist, she's an artist.

Her husband is a master brewer for Yellow Springs Brewery, and they recently rebranded their cans. Tracy was inspired, and you won't believe what she did!


She cut butterfly shapes from the cans. 


Made a dress and attached the butterflies. Amazing!!! 


Isn't this just lovely?!! 
The dress was entered into a juried art show. I hope she won.


On her post, Tracy included a video so you can see exactly how she attached the butterflies to the dress. So pop over, you'll find so much inspiration on her blog.


Next up is the loveliest lady. I met her when I went to the sewing expo in Puyallup to audition for the Sew It All program. As it turns out, we have many things in common, and one in particular is she too flies an airplane!!! In fact, she is super lucky as she actually lives at an airpark. Her name is Kathy and she blogs at Running With Rocket, named lovingly after her dog Rocket.

Kathy is so incredibly creative. Below is a clothesline bowl that she recently made as a gift at Easter. I just love how she used the thread to give definition.


There are so many tutorials on her blog, but I decided to showcase this one for baked potato bags. She says that these bags put out the fluffiest potatoes one could ever want.


Kathy makes the most incredible cards. On the left is a picture of a friend's horse, and on the right, the card she made for her. Look closely and you'll see an airplane in the background :)


On her blog, you'll find not only fabulous ideas, Kathy shares recipes AND her very green thumb! On the left is a picture of her blooming jade plant. I'm so jealous!!!


Kathy also has an Etsy store, so if you see something on the blog, love it, but would rather not spend the timing making it, you can most likely find it there. 

Have a wonderful day! I hope you are able to squeeze in a little time just for you :)
