"La-dee-dah", that pretty much sums up how I feel at the moment. Not too much going on, but too much going on all at the same time, does that make any sense? Regardless, I'm moving right along.
I've been trying to do a little sewing to update the shop, remember, I used to have an etsy shop? Way back at the beginning of the year I made a vow only to spend on fabric what I made by selling in the shop. Boy, have I ever left that one behind! I'm real excited about these new bags, made in the style of the daisy button bag, but it sure is taking me a long time. Who knew the addition of a pleated pocket to the front would be so labor intensive. Sheesh! I had planned on starting out with 6 fall colored bags, but as of now I only have 3 partially finished. I also have a few bags that I made earlier this spring/summer that I plan to list. Two of them I made for myself, used for a very brief time, then decided that I didn't want them. I threw those two in the wash (they washed beautifully), pressed them, and now they're as good as new. Do you think that's weird - me listing those? The other bag is a pleated purse that I made for a friend, but she never got back in touch with me to purchase it. Oh well, her loss.
I know, 6 measly purses isn't much of an update, but that's something. I'm really not cut out to 'sew for sale'. I much prefer to sew for myself or for gifts, but sometimes I get the urge to make something that I don't need, like 6 pleated pocket purses! I'll let you know when I do update - it may be next week or next month, who knows.
Before I forget, I was tagged last week my Linda for the Craft Meme, so here it goes:
Four choices--list crafts that you are familiar with, in the categories you'd choose.
- Love it! This is my thing. Sewing, of course! I really do love anything to do with fabric. I like sewing for myself, my kids, my home, and accessories.
- I do or have dabbled in it. Crochet, knitting, embroidery, card making, stamping, painting, jewelry making, and quilting. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to devote to any of them. I can only do so much!
- I'll give it a try. Photography - this is something I have an interest in, but have never really explored. I'd also like to try making pottery. Oh yeah, there's also printing on fabric - I'm very interested on this, but have no idea where to even begin.
- I've got absolutely no interest. I'm afraid that I'm going to offend lots with this one, but scrapbooking is something that I really have no interest in. I've tried it in the past, but I can't get into it. I guess I'd have to lump collage into that category as well. I do admire those who do scrapbook and make beautiful collages, but I don't have that talent. But who knows, I used to have no interest in knitting, and look at me now!
I think I'm supposed to tag 4 people to do this, so the first 4 people to comment on this post, go for it, if you want to, that is.
