First off, I want to show off my first sewing project! I am very new at this, I've only sewn a few straight lines besides this little purse. I found lots of tutorials online, and made this bag. I am totally loving it! (If you're related to me and a girl, you can be looking for this at a Christmas near you! ~ you can pick your own fabric if you want!)
Yesterday, I decided to paint a little desk I've had for years to put in Mary Helen's room. On the way out, I got tangled up, fell out the door and got this:
But, I did paint the desk, and the girls painted bird houses made for them by a family friend. We all had fun painting, and I'm only in pain when I move, so that's good!
I forgot to get an after of the desk...I'll get one soon!
Today was my birthday, and I have felt so special! Friends that you don't get to talk to often enough call, and friends stop by with apothecary jars (Thanks, Tracey, How did you know I would LOVE it??), flowers (thanks, Amy!!), or lots of thrift store jars and other things for my collections (thanks, Aunt Sheila!). I also got a gift card to Joanne's so I can sew something else!!
Until Next Time!
