Things haven't changed much around here! I still am doing very little sewing, but (it seems like) lots of drawing and coloring. I suppose that's not bad for a change. After 5 years of intense sewing, (and periodic children's garment sewing before then), I needed a break. Have you ever noticed how creative people can jump from one thing to the next? I've always been like that. I get my fill of one thing, and switch to something else and then to another thing, and eventually seem to get a little knowledge of lots of stuff. Sometimes it gets to the point when you wonder how much you really need to know though......I mean there will always be new things......and how many crochet hooks, and knitting needles and colored pencils, and fabric, and stamps, and paper, and markers, and cookbooks, etc. do you really need? I am overloaded with stuff, it seems! You too????? I bet! That's how us creative people are!!! WE have to be prepared for the latest passion, right?
I have no idea where that came from.......it just popped into my head. Let me show you the latest stuff. The heck with my platitudes.
I finally made a 2nd pincushion. I did send the 1st one to my partner though. I thought it suited her better. This one, I sent to my swap mama. I figured they could use it for an angel pincushion if necessary.
Then, I got to reveal what I made for "The Little Quilt -Sew, vote, Swap group. Mine came in at #2 for this round. I called it, "11 Penguins". It's 11x12"
Then, here are the envelopes I sent to my little great niece this past week. The first one is the early reader, and the next two contain the a-z mystery series books, "The Quicksand Question", and "The Invisible Island". It's come to where she is now guessing the names of the books by the envelopes. lol
And the drawing continues. Below are various envelopes I sent to friends. The ones to my fans who requested one are not shown because I surely wouldn't want to spoil the surprise.
Remember that I would love to send you an envelope too. Let me know.......! You might be surprised how it will brighten your day!
