I know I'm talking to myself here, but I deserve it. No one reads a blog when there is nothing to read. Now I will complain; I don't know why, but it seems more difficult now with the kids (age 7 & 5) than when they were babies. I thought it gets easier? The house is a constant stream of talking, demanding, & destroying. I know I should relax and enjoy this time with them, but some days I want to run from the house screaming. Oh, and here come the holidays, which means less time & more cooking & shopping. I do try to make it as simple as possible, but the reality is there are demands from school and family that make it not so simple. If I had time, I would do some paper crafting, so I wanted to share these:
You can download the PDF here Download Alice. To transfer the images, you can use embroidery transfer paper or a transfer pen - use the transfer pen on tracing paper & then iron the image on your fabric. Please send me pictures if you do stitch one of these. I want to start one of them soon, but the next couple of months is going to be busy. I was thinking of doing something like this on patterned fabric using only one thread color. Enjoy!
I said Tuesday morning, but it is still Tuesday! The winner of Carefree Clothes for Girls is twomittens, and Felting for Baby Debbie. Congratulations! I will send you an email to get your address. Thanks again to Make Good Books for letting me preview these.
The second book from Make Good Books; Carefree Clothes for Girls. After looking at this book, I wish I had girls. SImple and very cute.
I've enjoyed looking through these books. They are inspiring me to get back to crafting. I'm going to keep the giveaway for these books open until Monday and will announce a winner on Tuesday morning. Good luck and thanks again Shambhala Publications for sending me these books. Good luck!
I wanted to share some of the projects in Felting for Baby from Make Good Books. They sent me this book and Carefree Clothes for Girls to preview; both make me wish I had girls or a baby to make something for. The Make Good Book series are Japanese craft books, but in English (the English part really helps).
I wanted to show you two things I made, but the other photo is on my other memory card and I am too lazy to go look for it. This is a mini Cheshire Cat nesting doll. My goal is to make a whole set.
I'm still looking at the two books I mentioned earlier. I am also trying to read the August book. Baby steps.
Life has thrown me off balance. I am trying to wade through the hundreds of handouts from school. I feel very unorganized and just learned what a "walking taco" is. This was one of the fine healthy choices for hot lunch this week. My son is obsessed with hot lunch and I fear it.
Shambhala Publications of Make Good Books, contacted me and asked if I would be interested in previewing Carefree Clothes for Girls and Felting for Baby. Ah, Yes! So, over the weekend I am going to look through these and post some pictures and thoughts next week. Even better, since I do not have girls or know anyone having a baby soon, I will have a giveaway for these too.
Now I must avoid taking quizzes about which alcohol is me on Facebook.
Edward was spotted here; Sarah Eliza you are next, please send me your address.
