A friend and I made five costumes for a summer VBS program at church. There’s a vulture, and two women and men in Old Testament time-style clothing, you know robes and headdresses and staffs. The vulture is the coolest, if you ask me. I packaged them up nicely, because despite its environmental hazards, packaging really gives the final item justice and makes it sing.
I’m feeling blue today–bogged down by commitments and unable to enjoy daily life. I hate not having time to make a good meal, take pride in a clean house, some time at the craft table. I feel I’m always forced to choose between sleep, getting the basics done, or having some free time. I’m lacking in purpose and spending so much time on something I’m not really committed to and take little satisfaction from. I know I’ll snap out of it, but it’s where I’m at today on this beautiful June day. But, before I leave you on that note, I have some great links to share.
One, is this fabulous boutique. Oh, the clothes! Two, is this great basting tutorial for putting your quilts together that I forgot about until after I finished that last quilt. It looks like it will deliver the results I’ve been after without buying one of those huge quilt stretching contraptions that won’t fit in a single room in my house. And three, is this other fabulous tie-on slipper tutorial that you have to check out.
