I’ve been keeping myself busy around here while the gardening season is getting warmed up… I’ve been doing a lot of sewing:
Both of these pictures were taken on an extremely windy day. So windy, in fact, that the power went out for a few hours later that afternoon.
I also finally finished the project I had been planning to display all the beautiful shells I found on vacation:
Finally, I have quite a few good friends who are having babies in the near future. Since I’ve been reading all sorts of fun craft and sewing blogs, I see a lot of cute baby projects that I’ve been able to try. Most recently, Husband and I made a set of onesies for a couple we know who wanted some rocker-baby gear for their little one:
Husband and I dyed some plain white cotton onesies black (RIT dye) and cut out freezer paper stencils to “screen print” the designs with fabric paint. Some closeups:
We were pretty excited about how well they turned out!
I still have at least 5 sewing projects waiting on my lovely craft table right now, as well as scrapbooking that is calling my name. Recently I have been having a lot of fun scrapbooking with my friends. While it is hard to gather up just the right supplies to lug to someone else’s place to work, it *does* make me focus and get my layouts done. Maybe I’ll actually catch up someday!
Just thought I’d share some projects… Crafting and gardening keep me sane 😉
