I've had a busy day today, it's been nice
to be able to do
a little more. DH had to work today, his
one Saturday every
six weeks, which stinks but it has to be
done. So I thought
I'd play in my sewing room for a little.
Looks like it exploded, paper, glue,
everywhere, oh my!
My Sewing table, fabric squares all
neatly spread out by color.
I'm using some of these to make my
brooches out of.
My ironing board out, ironing fabric before
And all that on top are scrapbook papers.
Going through my
stash, oh, and I just realized my dresser
drawers are wide open.
So yes, I was in there, playing and making
a mess, which I always do
when I'm getting ready for a show coming up.
Sadly though, this is the first
craft show that I'm really not looking forward
to. I know its because I can't
do as much as I'm used to. All the sewing I do
and cutting and glueing.
Can't do that this time, so I'm just going to take
what I have and make things
that will be easier
on my recuperating body. My dear friend and
craft show parntner, Valerie, tells
me not to worry.
We'll have fun like we always do. I know
The craft show iscoming up rather
quickly, I try not to
think about it but
it's hard not to, its the first Saturday
in March. It'll be here
before you know it. But since I am still
so limited in what I can do
I decided to keep it simple. I have some
purses left to sell,
I'm going to alter some clipboards and
notebooks, I'm also endeavoring
to make some fabric
brooches. I have leftover fabric and
didn't know what I
should do with them, then I did some
research and found books
How excited I was, then I went online
and saw others were
making them as well, so many pretty
ones out there.
I made these over time. They are so much
fun to make!
So today I spent time cutting fabric. Lots
of it. I can do that sitting
down, so that is good for me.
I purchased two books on brooches and
I plan to purchase
another one for more ideas. Can't wait!
So, after that, I was craving
It's been over three weeks since I baked
anything and I thought
I'd try it. It was nice to be able to bake,
I miss it, but now I
I hear my tea kettle, time to make some tea.
Have a good night!
