Holy cow! Get yourself into something new and where does the time go? It seems as through the days have just flown by lately and here it is, a whole week since I've posted. More on that in a bit....
I'm sad to say that none of my kid's dresses were gobbled up and sold. Who knows what I'm going to do with them now? I should take a picture of the whole closet and show you how many are in there. Perhaps next time!
Today, we're going in several directions (due to my lack in sewing much at all these past two weeks). Truthfully, I found a pin in Toby's beard one day and it has scared me to death ever since. I love that little dog to death and if I were responsible for something happening to him, I don't know if I could forgive myself! The funny thing is that I don't use pins much so I have no idea how one got on the floor to start with. Thankfully, he didn't eat it.........but I'm so afraid that it might happen again. You must see him. Hubby and I groomed him this past weekend.........he was overdue by a week. Check out how hairy he was:
Kinda reminds you of cousin "IT", huh? Well, he looked much cuter when he was all done and back upstairs. I'm so glad that I'm still able to groom my own dogs. It sure has saved a ton of $$ all these years.
I am in a swap again....(big surprise)......so made a little off beat quilt to confuse my partner. This isn't what I am going to send her, since I don't think it's her style at all, but I threw it out there to see what everyone would think. I named it, "Secrets at Midnight". It's 12 x 17". Personally, I love it!
And a little closeup:
Nothing like a bit of color, huh? Too fun!
Yesterday, I received a marvelous envelope from my super talented friend who moved to California before her time! We had just met (here in Wisconsin) where she lived for years....until she moved to care for her aging parents a little over two years ago. It seems impossible it's been that long already! (Lucky girl does avoid our crummy winters now though...!!!) I'm going to try to steal her photo from her Flickrstream........aaahhhh.....poop! I just discovered that she has not allowed sharing. Phooey! Let me link you to her Flickr. Look for the envelope with my name....Carol! It's so amazing!
I sent her something too, but I will show you next time. For now, suffice to say that I have been busy in a different vein other than sewing. Somehow or another, I got "roped" into buying Copic markers lately. Too much surfing the net, I think. Anyway, I used these markers years ago when I was making Christmas cards to send every year and thought that buying a few more might be fun again. Well, one thing led to another and look what happened:
Yes, I am running out of room! I must find a different system of storage......but at least right now, I have no more room for more and perhaps that is a good thing! I LOVE these markers and I have been having such fun drawing and coloring my own designs. I started with a Zentangle that I had made a few years ago as you will see below, but I have since branched out and I will show you those next time. I have so many done, I must organize them first. Stay tuned.......
So....until next time........happy sewing, drawing, baking, cooking....or whatever your pleasure!
