The most exciting thing happened this week, which has stirred-up the craft zone that lives in my heart.
A friend of mine from church has a friend who is an interior decorator who specializes in custom drapery. This weekend they are having a garage sale. This interior decorator lady was selling her high priced fabric for $4/yard!!!
And she let me come to her house and buy fabric before the crowds. So I have been busy, busy, busy trying to think of all sorts of things to do with this fabric!
Speaking of sewing projects...
I have already made the bed for our new little addition. The bed was harder than I anticipated and I am not totally pleased with how it turned out. Coming up with this bed without a pattern was difficult for this right-brained mind of mine.
I think I used too much stuffing the bottom of the bed, and not enough in the sides.
I hadn't intended for it to be reversible, but somehow it ended up that way. Go figure.
Although this didn't end up exactly like my mind had envisioned, I think it will do.
Also, if you are trying to make any gifts this year I highly recommend taking a look at this list.
It is a list of 100's of things you can make for Christmas this year.
Also I am folding paper like a maniac to make a variation of these star ornaments, which will be mailed to friends far away. I am also making these ornaments for the people in my life who are nearby.
I am also thinking about making a few more of these. Although not in the amount I made last year!
All right. I should run. The Mister has today off and so we are taking the kids to a friends house so that we can shop together. By the end of this day I should be done with my Christmas shopping! Yippee!!
Happy Friday Y'all!
