I’m not dead!
Between school, business and various men (tee hee) I’ve not managed much crafting this week, but rest assured that I am not dead. Yet. Most of my designated crafting time (yes, I have designated crafting time) had been dedicated towards trying to work thigs out with Beastie, to no avail. It’s a shame because the sewing bug is chewing on me like a bulldog on a pork chop. I must sew. Must! I just can’t, because my machine and I are (and there’s no nice way to put this) at war.
Of course, even with my productive crafting time seriously scaled down and/or eaten up by (wo)man/machine treaty negotiations, I’ve still finished a thing or two. I picked this top up second hand, and though gorgeous it desparately needed help. The ribbons were either a) torn off or b) worn through, so I snatched up my handy dandy stitch-ripper, a needle, and a spool of red ribbon in order to get my repair-woman on:
I think it’s hot. Now if only my attempts to repair Beastie would work out as well.
I’ve also done a bit of beadwork in the form of a single forlorn monochrome ear wrap. It’s shiny and pretty and all, it’s just kind of pitiful when you consider that’s all I’ve managed for the week. Ah well.
No, really. Even my toenails are teal.
I’ve got some good stuff planned for this weekend, including a tutorial and the continuation of Calla, if I can figure out where in the bloody hell I put her. I’m organized like a riot– that is to say, not at all. I may even churn out some hand sewing, if I can find that. Ah, to have my own studio with bright flowers, big windows, and a place for every goddamned project.
I leave you with one of the many things keeping me busy this week:
