The pants on the left I recently picked up at a clothing swap. They are so thin and cozy and anD I love more than anything the tie in the front. This morning I attempted to duplicate them. The pants came out great but they were made for
My 9th grade self not my after 2 babies, hips run in the family, 37 year old self. So I try again tomorrow. If you are a size 2 and you want them (the green pants) give me a shout.
I started making my own wreaths about 5 years ago and every year they improve. I think I have mastered the technique and thought I would shoot for making a star wreath this year to shine on the house all winter. I Love winter so much, I am always looking for and creating a shiny beautiful twinkle somewhere. The process was a bit tricky but It looks great wrapped in the lights. It is not big enough so I just ordered a 30″, hoping it will be visible from the road!
I received steve jobs’ biography for christmas and coming from a woman who loves her zen and her ipad it is a must read…. every person who owns and utilizes a computer on a daily basis should learn the history of your machines. What a world They lived in.
I blog a post with total confidence i will do it again tomorrow But… Here i am looking at this last blog post and my daughter has nearly doubled in size. Today i write tomorrow i may not but lets focus on right here right now.
On a completely unrelated note. I grabbed this book at the library the other day completely on a quick thought that it may be interesting. I want to start a shop i am not a business minded person right now so i guess i start here with this book. It is a quick quick read. Maybe hence the title. It is old and it talks about the 911 system just being introduced. Old books rock!!
..i came home today from a shorter visit to NH that was just, let’s say so INSPIRING spiritually. I did bring a project of making a continuous bias strip. i haven’t tried it in awhile and the piece of fabric is huge so I hope I can line it all up and cut away i guess if worst comes to worst i cut strips and sew them together BOO! but i walked into the studio and it smelled so good. i don’t even know what but I can’t wait to get in there, expecially with my little BF! someday she will be my partner in sewing. if she wants too..until then…so many projects sew little time…
I was inspired by a tutorial posted by Melissa Haworth. I purchased the tutorial and spent the past two years finding just the right sheets. I followed the instruction on how to layer the strips and ruffles and the rest I had to take side roads. I used a quilt batting instead of a flannel sheet. I love the weight it gave it. I also measured my strips and cut them out the width of the quilt instead of making super long ones. It is so beautiful in my daughter’s room. I love it. Thank you Melissa.
