In other news, I've been busy. Just not sewing. My oldest started T-Ball, we had a dog for a week, (best dog ever), wrapped up preschool graduation, got new furniture for my kids, my husband got a job, planted our traumatized garden, did a Bird Unit (homeschool style) with the kids, and
Anyway, in trying to keep the mess/stress down for the last month, I didn't bring my sewing machine out. (I'm a very messy sewer) But I did do some crafting.
This used to be my favorite purse-from Fossil of course.
|I put a snap in--you can see it on the bottom piece. |
I didn't even stitch it in. I hot glued it. If it had been a bigger snap, I may have used duct tape.
It's been that kind of a month:)
I also made peacock feather earrings. And then I threw them in my purse. Now, they are trashed. I really liked them so I'll probably make some more. (Does this sound like "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" to anyone but me?) And not put them in my purse.
(Unfortunately, no promises on this end)
This sewing I did a couple days ago! As long as I get all those crossed out things done today, I might show you tonight! It's made with 3 rectangles (sound familiar?)
I really should branch out--but lately, I just need easy.
This is what happened to the rest of my purse (the necklace)
Believe it or not, this is the best picture. I'm not a
photographer like my mom. (Who is doing a recap of
her time aboard the USNS Comfort on a service mission, by the way.
You should check it out)
So wish me luck, I should be posting again shortly. (yea!)
Right now, however, I must settle a dispute between Anakin's ghost vs. Darth Maul's bodyguard. Sigh.
