SO, SO MUCH!!!
I’m not even that good at taking pictures with it… but it makes such a difference.
Today I made a birthday gift for my cousin’s daughter, Birch. (seen above playing with B-Bug after her b-day party… when our camera was still alive and kicking).
Ron and Cora lead a remarkably natural lifestyle … so I couldn’t just run to Target and get her a flashing light toy or play make-up.
So I got creative… and made this:
I can’t tell you how proud I am that I’ve busted out the old sewing machine yet again. I made felt envelopes with velcro stamps and filled them with one fabric note with ribbon taggies and the others with letters and pictures
Once again… my sewing is ATROCIOUS! But, I’m just glad I remembered to lower the needle this time.
Unfortunately, Jeff was sewing some bean bags for the throwing game he built… and used up all the white thread. Even more unfortunately… he is out of town and is the only one who knows how to fill the bobbin. Neat… my husband knows more about the sewing machine than I do.
…SO BLACK THREAD IT WAS!
I hope Birchie likes it… and doesn’t make her first sentence …
“Geez… did a blind person sew this?”
Speaking of crafts, I painted 3 ‘modest’ mermaids for Lily’s friend, Sarah’s, room… none of which I took a photo of.
While I was making them, I painted one extra. I guess I’ll put it in my etsy store.
that’s the last time the word MERMAID will ever appear on this blog…
