Q: Why do men's clothes have buttons on the right while women's clothes have buttons on the left?
A: When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put the buttons on the maid's right! And that's where women's buttons have remained since.
What do you think??? Fact or Fiction???
I am still working on pin cushions, wow those things are popular. I use mine every day and just love it :-)
The picture today is a birthday present for a friend's granddaughter. Cute little FUN purse, with cell phone pouch, credit card wallet and there is even a change purse to match (see picture below). What a sweet grandma to have something special made just for her.
The change purses are a lot of fun. Look at the one with the playing cards....what a fun pouch to hold your POKER MONEY $$$$$.....LOL

Does the little guy in your life want one of these Race Car Mats?
It can go in the car, restuarant, doctor's office, or even at home....giving your child a clean (germ free) surface to play on.
It is approximately 11" x 17" when open. When finished playing, park your cars (holds 8 - not included) and fold into thirds and close with the velcro closure and you are ready to go.
The little carry handle is a perfect size for little hands.
Special orders are my "special-T" and this one was for Janie in Riverview. She wanted the colorful puzzle piece fabric for the outside. And for the pockets inside, she wanted each one (of the SIX) to be a different color. Ok...no problem there..... Janie is a very organized person and wanted to organize the inside of her purse as well. :-)
I delivered it to her about a month ago and she seemed THRILLED with her new purse.

Love this cute color combination....
Medium size tote which is a perfect size for diaper bag, scrapbook pages, books and other items. Perfect for teachers to carry items to school, or perfect for the traveler to take with you on the airplane.
The FUN purse is just perfect for theme parks, a day at the market or the person that just likes the smaller purse. The strap is long enough to wear cross body or if you want it shorter, just tie a knot in the strap and voila a whole new look :-)
We have been waiting to show you all this Texas Longhorn beauty because it was a birthday present from me and Michelle to Fredy. We celebrated birthdays and Father's day yesterday...oh what fun we all had too :-)
We ordered fabric for the backing (as it's a little hard to find Texas fabric in Florida) and then Michelle started to "borrow" shirts from Fredy's closet - one by one. LOL She then got chicken and had to tell him she was taking them and gave him a little hint as to what she needed them for. It still didn't seem to spoil the surprise. He was SUPER thrilled to receive his quilt and his shirts are no longer just hanging in his closet. They are now forever preserved into this quilt for him to use and use and use.
Happy Birthday Fredy

Ever wonder what to do with all of your college shirts that you no longer wear, but do NOT want to get rid of????
Yep, you guessed it...make a memory quilt from them.
Soft and cozy, this quilt measures around 50 x 60 inches and is perfect for getting cozy on the sofa to watch all those college games :-)
It takes about 25 - 30 shirts....let me know if you are interested.
