These are my two fun ones made for moi!
These are the necklaces I made for Melia for Chirstmas. More stolen genius obviously from Kathy who taught us how to make these ummm whenever that was. She is all about the princesses and so I figured how much easier does it get then sticking a sticker on and looking like a genius for my daughter! It turned out to be more involved when I didn't love the border on the stickers and then decided to exacto out each princess - that was eight princesses since I made some for my neice for Christmas as well. My eyes were totally fried after two - I had to spread it out over a couple days and I may have roped Vance into doing one or two =).
These are the little Christmas ornaments I made with Melia's help for the wonderful ornament exchange hosted at the house of Madame Fabulous. We had fun and of course I had to make one or two for me!
Next comes my recent sewing phase - I know its been fun. I finally made a bag for my cricut cause it really does travel a great deal and is really rather annoying to carry. The making of this was a gong show mainly due to the pocket I thought would be so easy. Note to self: check to be sure your piece of material is the right direction before attaching pocket because then you have to change everything else to match. sigh.
Then after making that bag I wanted to make bags for the comfortors we bought our kids before Christmas and then had to haul everywhere for two weeks - really annoying. These were WAY easier to make once Vance suggested I trace a bowl for the circle on the bottom. I can not draw a circle free hand. Not one of my skills. I also found a new favorite fabric store in Lethbridge called Marshalls. They were very nice to me and found me cheap fabric despite my having no idea what I really wanted or needed. Guess which one is for which rascal? Do you love my model? She had to help and always has to help when I sew. How you may ask? Well she passes me pins when I need them and I pass them back when I take them out. Thats the best I could come up with for helping with sewing!
Well my last sewing project is Im making another dress for Melia - same pattern, different material. It has been way easier than the first time but Im blogging instead of working on it while trouble is sleeping so it may be a while yet. Then I think I need to try to get into scrapbooking again cause it would be lovely to get caught up before this new rascal is born. Yikes - two months! I think I'd better start working on my denial about having another baby =)
The other day when we were at the fountain in the hat Vance asked if I wanted an updated picture of my rascals and the funny part is I didn't think I needed one - they havent grown have they?
There is a chance I may be in denial about them growing as well. What is the next step after realizing you are in denial anyway? I only ever get that far.
