The Shoppe

Wow, what a ride it's been. Three years ago I started a sign business using pallet boards and any other scrap wood we had and it's been quite a journey!! I never expected it to be this successful and to have it involve my husband so much. He convinced me to set up a little gift shop in our garage and that's where Hummingbird Hems and Home Decor evolved.  Here are a few pictures of the Shoppe, this is before we finished the walls.


Last fall, 2015, we finished the walls and what a difference it made. I love how it turned out and it was from repurposed wood from the remodel to our house.

My Awesome Sewing Room

My husband, Vern, helped me redo my Sewing Room. I love how just moving my cutting table and ironing station made my sewing room seem so much bigger and cleaner. I also got the walls painted, except for one which has wallpaper on it and I'm not sure what to do with it.

I'm back!!

My life has been a little crazy lately, starting back in August of 2012. I shattered my kneecap and had to have surgery to put it back together. I have finally recovered from it but a little slow on the walking but at least I don't have to use crutches anymore.
I'm finally back in my sewing room working on projects once again. I will work on posting more pictures of the finished products. I also bought myself another sewing machine, which makes it 10 in my collection!! It's a industrial sewing machine that sews leather and other heavy materials and once we got it all cleaned up and running, it was awesome!!
My first project on it was a recycled bag made from an awning given to me.
The bird on the front was from a Dairy Queen Banner.

CarBage Sacks

Been awhile since I've posted any pictures. I've been so busy with my sewing that the posting has been put on the back burner. These are the latest CarBage Sacks with more pictures to be added. Most of the wildlife ones are already sold and no more will be made with the prints.
