A bit quiet on the crafting front in our house this fortnight.
It's also been raining non-stop the past week, so we haven't been hitting the parks much (or at all). We did a simple little paper craft this morning (photos later when the storm clouds go away and the lighting in the universe improves) which I will share maybe tomorrow.
I have a quarter-finished cardboard construction that I am desperate to work on but can't because it has to be a secret from the kids. It is cardboard AND electronics, which is why I think the girls will love it. I'd work on it at nights but I have a sewing deadline to meet, so argh! Priorities. Whenever sewing gets higher on the priority list than cardboard+batteries, the planets are misaligned.
I am also in a silly Top-Stitching Mania phase. Meaning I want to add top-stitching to every garment I am making. Slower-than-a-sloth-on-Sunday hand-sewn top-stitching, not the efficient sewing- machine type. Tomorrow (or whenever the lighting in the universe improves) I might take a photo of that buttery yellow linen with grey topstitching and ask you all if it's too ridiculous for a tunic or not.
Emily's teachers' end-of-year gifts are turning out to be somewhat nightmarish. It is entirely my fault because I miscalculated a very important measurement and I don't think it's going to work. And I can't start trying to fix them yet because I am fanatically top-stitching two identical skirts right now. Yes, she's started to mass-produce her own clothes, like a chain department store. When she has no time. She's finally flipped.
And all this, you say, without a single photo! What sort of blogging is this? How will she get us to believe her? Or pity her?
I don't need pity. I need a crate of jars of nutella. A crate of Bailey's Irish Creme also might be nice. Have you ever had Bailey's in your hot chocolate? I used to only drink hot chocolate that way. Mmmm.
