The skirt for my Trash2Trends project. I have to sew all the pieces together, but other than that, it is done! The bodice is also finished, and if you noticed, I made a choker from some tubing to fancy the whole thing up. Have you ever tried to iron plastic? Kinda tricky, but so far, I haven’t melted anything, and cross my fingers, that won’t happen.
It’s been nice having my own crafty room downstairs with extra tables and room to work. It’s like my own workshop, it’s so nice to have the tools I need right there and available and where I can find them when I need them. Guys can have a wood shop, I can have a sewing shop. Hey….I like that name, The Sewing Shop. You heard it here first, don’t steal my idea.
Now I need to do an internet search to see if someone already has that name.Well, there’s one in Louisiana, Milford, Ohio, and Canterbury. No worries, I’ll make it work.
Anyway, putting the final touches on this week to get ready for next week’s show. If you are in the area, come see all the cool designs! You’ll be amazed at what people do with paper, and plastic bags, and rubber, and cardboard, and cd’s, and medical supplies….
Anna just loves to look out the window. She guards the house from her perch.
The weather has warmed – 40F – so the snow is melting, which makes it easier for her to run around outside. The ice makes it challenging, since she’s missing that front leg, so she ends up sitting most of the time and watching the birds and the world go by. She’s so content just doing that. Wouldn’t that be nice if we all could be just content watching the birds and the world go by?
A little bit of work on my Trash2Trends project today. I’m sewing together some masks to make the bodice and it’s coming together quite nicely. This material is so easy to work with and pretty forgiving. I figure just a little bit every day and it’ll get done. I should have this done this week, then I need to finish the skirt. There are so many wrinkles in the skirt material and I’m trying to figure out a good way to remove them. I have a hand held steamer so I’m going to try that. I tried putting the skirt material in the dryer and setting it to ‘touch up’, which did seem to work, but left the material a little used looking. Not a good look.
A high of 36F tomorrow! Almost a heat wave after this past week, and it’s projected to be a high of 54F on Thursday! That’s t-shirt and short weather!
Yes, I know I look ridiculous, but that’s how you dress in the cold.
I told Nate that there is NO WAY a person can look cute in the winter, no matter how much you try. You are either warm and comfortable and look that way, or you are fashionable, freezing, and highly uncomfortable.
Those are your only 2 choices.
I go for warm and comfortable, no matter how ridiculous I look.
