Wild Flower pin cushion from Jodi (usairdoll), which I have been meaning to make for myself ever since Amanda made herself one several years ago. As is so often the case, I never got around to it. But now I don't have to! Isn't it fun! I love the fussy cut petals. And the colors are perfect - bright and fun. Perfect for my new sewing space. And it's filled with walnut shells, so it won't go flying across the room when I try to stab it with my not-so-sharp pins.
Lastly, I received this really cute angel friendship bag from Laura VanVleet in the Friendship Bag Swap. I guess my friendship bag got lost or something, and Laura, who is one of the mamas, made me this fun bag. Don't you love the little strawberry and kiwi in that fabric strip? So summery and fun.
In other news, the my new sewing space is in its 3rd or 4th iteration (nope - no new pictures yet... soon I hope). I thought I had it nearly finished yesterday, but then the wall bracket came for the computer monitor (I have visions of watching movies and Craftsy classes while I sew) which required moving all the stuff stashed against the wall, and then finding studs (which are apparently hiding), so it's not up yet.
And in the process of creating this room, I have managed to tear up Every. Room. In. The. House. Of course there are paint and tools (including some kind of saw) in my kitchen. And goodwill stuff and the old bed frame in the living room. And too much furniture in Arielle's old room. And a complete reorganization of the garage. How do projects mushroom out of control like this???
And I haven't really sewn in 10 days.
It's making me crazy.
Tell me it will get better? Please?
