I've negleted this blog for quite some time. Maybe I should get back into it. More of journaling than anything else.
Well, I've been on a bag kick lately. Why? I'm not one to change bags alot. I just enjoy the process of making them. I love seeing how different fabric combinations look together. In January there was a sew along for one particular bag. I participated. It was fun! These ladies were also making some awesome wallets. I decided that I needed to try these. OMG!!! They are so addicting. You can alter the wallet flap. So many possibilites. I have physically made 3, mentally hundreds!
Why only 3? Well I have been volunteered to make 7 pair of lined curtains. If they were for me I could just whip them out, but they will be seen and even criticized by some people. I feel anything that non family members see are a representation of my work and must be my best. I took my time on them. It would have been faster if the fabric wasn't so twisted. We tried to save $$. You get what you pay for. I'm rather pleased with how they came out. Now I just have to make the tie backs.
I woke up with one of those headaches! I wasn't sure if I would be sick or not. Had the feeling that I was but coffee smell didn't bother me like usually with one of these. Give it about 1 hr and I was. Once I was sick things settled better.
I really want to make another wallet! I have 1 in mind to give that I wanted to make before the curtains. Tore the house apart looking for the fabric even. That had to go on hold. I also was asked to make a special one. I have to find my black and white fabric for this one.
My body wasn't in the thinking state, so I cruised the web looking for a certain paper pieced pattern I had done years ago. I know I have it some where. Key word: SOME WHERE. Looking at pictures is about all my body can handle right now. Did I find it? No. I love this flower. I'm not crazy about
paper piecing but will occasionally do it. I'll have to go through the pattern box another day. I did find other patterns that I would like to try down the road.
It's mid afternoon. What to work on? Wallet? Tie backs? Crocheted Hats for donation? I need to keep my hands busy. I'm sure I'll find something. It'll be something simple I can assure you.
I'll try to keep you posted Thanks for listening to my rambling and have a great day.
What a Van Load of Stuff!
