Hairspray + hot rollers = the need for curl smoothing products. If you can't tell from the picture, those curls are basically on top of my head, and had no plans to succumb to gravity. A than oil and wearing a hat has hopefully calmed things down a bit.
Newest knitting project nearing completion. I can do colorwork! Who knew? I might be addicted. It's so much fun to watch the pattern show up.
Peer pressure. The cats think I should call in sick and snuggle with them all say today. I will resist, but gotta say that sometimes they have really good ideas.
Teaser shot. The built-ins are almost complete. Just a few more screws. I looks so good in here!
Today's outfit. Not really, but it feels like that. Plaid wide-legged trousers with cuffs, and a turtleneck sweater. I keep thinking one of the Charlie's Angels is going to show up and ask for her outfit back. But I'm rockin' it.
Nearing the end of sewing month. I have taken the last few days off for no good reason, but I'm back today with these lovely jelly rolls. They are leftovers from other projects, grouped by theme or color, and these 7 are nearly ready to sell. Another 4 still need mosaics made up of all the prints, but my eyes are getting blurry from staring at the screen so long.
I didn't want to sew tonight. Didn't really want to do anything, but I had episodes of Stargate SG-1 to watch and the month of sewing is almost over, so I pushed on. Instead of sewing, I gathered up my 2" strips, most of which had already been sorted into themes, and got them all prepped for selling. Then it took me half an hour to make up the collage if all the included fabrics for just 2 of the piles. If I keep plugging away at it, I might get them posted on etsy by the end if the month. (I would have preferred to cut out fabric for a new dress, but couldn't justify starting another project, even if I do need clothes that for my current waist size.)
In case you couldn't see in that last pic, the ruffle fabric is kitchen-themed! How cute is that? It will look especially lovely once my kitchen is painted pink.
One if those towels is actually finished! And ready for use! Crazy, I know.
More sewing! Had to stop when I'd used up 3 partial bobbins of white thread. I didn't want to wind more.
More ruffles, and mini ric rac too! Now, I have to go order groceries and watch Sharknado. For reals.
Took Friday and Saturday off, but I did some actual sewing today! Lots of ruffles!
Tonight's efforts: prepping towels. I'd already picked out the fabrics and ribbon, but tonight I figured out exactly what I'd do for each, and cut the fabric out. The top two, as well as a third that's not pictured, will be sold or used as gifts. The bottom two are for my kitchen.
Sitting at the dealership, waiting to find out how much it will cost to repair my side view mirror. Last Friday, I accidentally backed into the tree in the middle of our driveway. Probably wont have time to fixed my chipped nail polish or do anything in my office tonight, so I might have to take a day off. We'll see how long this takes.
The giveaway pile grows! I also set out some quick and easy projects, so I might just get to sewing this week. Burp cloths, towels, that sort of thing. In case there's a surprise baby shower I need a gift for, or housewarming, or… who knows what. People live handmade gifts. At least, the people I know do.
