i spent the weekend with my sewing machine.
we have really bonded.
a couple of months ago i convinced two friends to do a craft show with me as a fundraiser for davis.
they were all over it.
and every day, they come to work with something pretty they've made.
necklaces, flower pins, hats, scarves, etc.
and i sit there, nodding my head, trying on their goodies, oohing and aahing.
as i make NOTHING.
not good at all.
but this weekend i made up for my lost time and lazy weekends.
i sewed 21 pillows.
i made two chalkboards.
i painted a chair and reupholstered the seat.
anna and i made button hair clips together.
there is a HUGE pile of pillows in the craft room. (this is just a few!)
first i cut and cut and cut.
some of the fabrics i had for months.
it was almost painful to cut into them at first.
i am a recovering fabric addict.
it's pretty obvious that i am attracted to bright swirly patterns and lots of ruffles.
and today my arms are sore.
from cutting and SEWING!
so sad it's almost funny.
so what's my next project...i'm not sure!
but i'm sure i'll be hangin with my homey, my brotha, my bro--my sewing machine, silly!
