Well, I did some sewing yesterday. Fun Fun!! I can’t share my project just yet but lets just say it involves the prettiest lime green wool felt, seed beads, hot pink thread & some blanket stitching (which I just learned how to do!), a little embroidery…SO CUTE!!! I’m dying to post a picture. Maybe I’ll just have to make another (similar) one that I can show??? Hmmm? Wonder if I have time to do that tomorrow??
I’ve been collecting boxes for my MOVE…not sure what to pack first. Hmm? I guess I could start with books, dishes (that we don’t use), the girls’ craft closet–I really can’t digest the thought of actually moving. We’ve lived in this house for five and a half years. I bet we have twice as much stuff as we came here with–at least. Scary! And sad.
Abby had her first birthday on the patio here.
Sara broke her arm three years ago in the backyard here.
Cash came home to here.
We’ve made a lot of memories here…it will be a sad day to leave this home.
On a happy note! Of course I’ve been thinking about what color I’m going to paint my craft/scrap room…I think I have to go with the blue…you can see the color here in the girls NOW room.
I just LOVE this color!! Its a Ralph Lauren color called Faded Seafoam–just so light and airy and happy. I think I got the inpiration for this from Candice–I think she painted her scraproom this color in her new house a while back. Good color. My bedroom is going to be this color too! This is what my room looks like now…I’m kinda tired of the green. (It looks kinda pea green in the pic…its not really).
The house we’re buying has lots of lovely paneling. So we are formulating a plan to overhaul the paneled look. Abby is not impressed with her would-be room all decked out with paneled walls. She doesn’t think it looks like a princess room at all! LOL!
Sew, back to sewing! I ordered some of my favorite fabric to make Sara a quilt (and other things) for her new room. Of course, its Fresh Cut! Mmmm, mmm, MMMM! Love that stuff! Also bought some more of Shangri La by 3 Sisters/Moda. Making somepillows for my couch with it. Isn’t it RICH and just beautiful? I think I have just about exhausted my Pay Pal account for now. NO MORE EBAY for me…this week 🙂
Isn’t it sad that you can’t really sew things for much cheaper than you could go and buy them. I was telling Scott the other night…that its really just a matter of design and preference with sewing these days rather than doing it out of neccessity. Kinda sad. But I suppose I am glad that we don’t have to trade furs for Calico and sit up by the candlelight to work and make our own dresses after all of the other days work was done (thinking Little House in the Big Woods). Especially since I HATE wearing dresses 🙂
Okay, well now, I’m done for now…TGIF!
Happy Weekend, y’all!
