Yesterday I got some great goodies from Brenda, who is way over in Australia!
On Tuesday I made Emilie go into the comic book store with me, and you know what the guy was so sweet to us. I really recommend going to your local shop and getting these inexpensive acid free bags (ment for comics obviously) if you have a lot of patterns. If you ever cut them and they don’t stuff back in the envelope right, or if they are falling apart these are ace. A pack of 100 was like 4.99, and the cardboard boxes (very sturdy and nice) were about three I think. I made the tabs from extra chip board and dymo labels (of course!). Yes I really need to stop organizing and get to sewing. To that end my mom and I got the rest of the fabric we needed for a quilt class we are taking March first. So excited for that. I did do a quick craft (with ribbon):
An old charm bracelet of mine, just tied it together as a necklace with some yummy double faced satin (I used this color and size). I saw this in Blueprint once (RIP). I also think that button necklace that Brenda sent would look good with this sweater, since it would sort of bend it would be all about texture. Oh and I’m getting a haircut today so ignore that do. Other happenings:
Been meaning to get this done for um, over a year. My mom had her kitchen re-done and her and Bill gave me the extra pieces of soapstone from the counter tops.
It will look a little more finished once I finally get the quarter round on the rest of the molding and can oil the stone (that’s how you care for it and it keeps it dark and rich). I was going to have just three big pieces but we didn’t have enough, however I think this ended up being a great solution, and the stone was free so you’re not going to get any complaints from me.
p.s. I’ve lost 2.5 pounds, and my jeans fit looser (looser meaning I can wear them for more than like an hour), whoo hoo!!
