I received this pillow sewing book for Xmas, I just love it! I've already learned some new techniques.
Yay! Cartwheel ,cartwheel, round off, jump stars!
(Okay maybe not, but you know what I mean.)
Immediately upon opening I knew I'd be up all night sewing this cushion.
One hundred half triangle squares later I had my cushion.
Feast your eyes.
Of course I threw in a skull (or two)--that's a must.
I love it when a project makes me so happy.
What make you "sew" happy?
The back is linen in indigo. I'm so drawn to blue colors, I really think I'm meant to live by the sea.
Maybe I should ask for a yacht next Xmas? heehee
I also started on this star last night.
Another scrappy project.
Creamy linen surrounds the scrappy star.
Let's see where this goes in a few days.
These are gifts from my BFF.
Rainbow colors + chocolate + skull stuff =
one happy lady
I hate that whole half bar in record timing. I loooooove dark choc. Ugh.
Are you a dark or a milk choc fan? I mean I won't discriminate or anything, but if given the choice I'm all down with 70% cocoa or even higher. Yup.
I know. (!!!) squeal scream
As for family news:
Mia lost her front tooth Christmas Eve night. The tooth fairy was mighty good to her for being brave.
She's been busy practicing her Paleontologist skills.
And this one, need I say more? Pictures speak a thousand words.
I was trying to be a good parent and help them have a creative outlet with felt art, and instead a felt fight ensued. Geesh.
See you soon- Ruby and I are off to catch some Boxing Day deals.
