Not awesome. Mrs. Church would send me straight back to Victorian sewing school. But it’s leap years beyond my last attempt. Sadly, it’s in the middle of a scrap with no practical purpose. /sigh 😉
… My Crafty sister-in-law’s young co-worker gave her a bunch of fabric that had been abandoned by some relative. It, of course, found its way here. It’s mostly quilting cotton, some cuter than others. There’s a lot of Christmas fabric, which I confess doesn’t do much for me, but maybe it would be a good excuse to make a zillion reusable fabric gift bags. And there’s some really nice unbleached cotton twill. And apron prints. Lots of apron prints. >_< what would you do with a sudden and unexpected abundance of quilting cotton?
What was supposed to be a quick examination of the (minor) alterations needed for my cousin’s wedding dress turned into a game of dress-up such as we haven’t had since we were ten. The kids and I squeezed her into a remarkable number of things in my wardrobe. She especially liked the Grecian Sundresses, and totally rocks the fluffy dresses. Still working on getting her to believe that sewing stuff herself might be possible. 😉
Today I made our annual Christmas cards. No, they won’t be there in time for Christmas. (Really they never are) It’s hard with crafts like this not to try to outdo yourself each year… But this year is definitely a “roll-back” year… Especially since the box with all my stamp pads and embossing powder is MIA at the moment. Note to Mom and Crafty and anyone else on the Christmas list who reads this: you are still familially obligated to act surprised and delighted when you get your actual card.
