Today I forced myself out of bed at 9AM...(what can I say, I'm not a morning person, and been having trouble sleeping in the wee hours of the morning, thus sleeping late) ....and out the door with the fur-girls for an early (for us) 45 minute walk, because I was expecting a stitching friend to join me today, and I wanted to be ready.
So, last night I thought to make another part to the giveaway today, and do some more stitch ripping on those curtain panels and see if I could get stitching on them.
I was going to make another tutorial out of this little sewing kit that I made "from scratch", but was soooo busy yacking with stitch friend that I forgot all about taking photos during it's progression. Similar to this Tute, only from scratch... Oh well... Next time!
I don't know what got into the fur-girls today...or at least one of them! I had 3 fights to break up within a 1/2 hour after friend came in... One of those days I guess?!
DD2 comes in after work and says, "What's all this? Where am I supposed to put my stuff?" when she sees the table piled with my sewing needs of the day... I told her, as per usual, to bring it all downstairs where she spends most of her time when home... 2 more weeks! ... 2 more weeks! 8-)
Some of the comments on my giveaway post have brought me to some very interesting blogs, and today brought me to 3 new blogs... THREE!!! Thus, I share them with you now to welcome them aboard... Terri of Terri's Bits and Pieces, Anna of Quiltmom's Journey, and Jen of My Little Craft Corner. Congrats on starting your blogs ladies! 8-)
Also, of interest, is this tutorial and this tutorial to make an apron out of old pants! Ya, I know, I thought "what?" myself when I read that. But check it out! It's cute!
This might explain my "2 more weeks?" comment...
I have 3 birdies. Two girls and a boy. First Girl out of nest 3 years ago, Second Girl has stayed in the nest, Baby Boy was out and back in the nest... Though... First Girl is moving back to the city later this month and asked Second Girl to share the apartment, thus she too shall fly away... Baby Boy says he will be gone before the snow flies, but I don't know...? Could it actually happen? The nest will be empty, but for 2 fur-girls... 8-)
That be it for today... time for supper!
