Messes are a good thing
Perhaps this will sound crazy, but the house is suddenly TOO organized. I feel like it is so organized that I have to spend all day keeping it that way, and I am starting to resent it. I told you it would sound crazy! Either way, Jack and I have spent some time today making messes. I feel better now, like I can breathe again. Messes are good.
I found this cute little potholder at the thrift for 50 cents the other day. I hung it up on my inspiration board for a few days, and today, this was born:
Clearly still a work-in-progress (that top piece of trim is crooked and making me crazy!), as I have only gotten as far as cutting it out and putting it together. And, because people often ask me, I use lite Steam-A-Seam II to do my applique with. I find it is a lot easier to sew or embroider through once you have it pieced together.
This stuff is too good not to share. Offray felt rick rack. I bought these microspools at Wal-Mart. It will be great for baby booties and loads of other projects I am sure.
P.S. I am still using the Old Blogger and they are having issues today. If you can't leave a comment or see photos or what-have-you, please come back later and try again!
