TGIF world! Its me again.I’m on day three, and it has definitely become an official “roll”, right?
Ok – This week I made and /or actually completed a couple of projects. I believe the blog world calls them UFOs?(Unfinished objects, get it?)That’s so cute. The first is a lounge size pillow I made for my niece. She picked the fabric and the pompoms.It’s made with the envelope flap on the back so it can be washed (and yes, it is yet again, a PILLOW). I'm sticking with what I know, but the lady at Joanne's swears I can move on to a skirt. Anyone have a newbie skirt pattern that can't be screwed up? If so, I'm interested. :)
Also, I am happy to announce, that after one year of choosing and purchasing the fabric, I actually sat on the floor until midnight and ironed, pinned and sewed a seam / hem (this is my sewing “newbie” knowledge showing) for a valance / scarf thingee that hangs over my window in the powder room, and the seam is almost straight.It looks really pretty good to me.Whose laughing now, I know I wasn’t, I was seeing double by then.What do you think?
Thanks everyone for the comments - still love to hear back with suggestions for future projects and maybe just stop by to say hello. Feel free to follow - it will get better!
Just for fun - this is the view at The Oasis Restaurant overlooking Lake Travis in Austin, TX. Isn't it beautiful?
