Now that wedded wednesdays are over I guess I should start sharing some things I have been working on currently!
As of late I have fallen into my routine of half finishing a project and then getting distracted by another enticing project. Anyone else suffer from this same thing? I sure am lucky to have a husband that tolerates my fluttering about from one project to the next without finishing one. Our kitchen chairs have had blue painters tape on them for roughly 4 months...and only one is painted. Oops.
Anyway, moving on from that bit of embarrassing honesty ;) I have been working on a cute little project for a friend who is about to have a baby...like in 2 weeks kind of soon! And I have been working to make the same thing for the little boy that I nanny. It will be something similar to this. Mine is going to be a bow tie though :) I'll be sure to post pictures once they are finished.
I also have been thinking about this project for a while but had not taken the time to go and get supplies and such until recently. So, I have been trying to figure out the best way to make this lovely lace and jersey infinity scarf. My first attempt left me very grumpy and without a new scarf to wear. It was a bad night.
A few weeks ago I had a chance to go down to LA and go fabric shopping! If you have yet to go, stop reading and go! Seriously...it's amazing. For roughly $40 I got about 20 yards of fabric. Uhm, what??? The Fashion district is a magical place that makes all my dreams come true and not all my money disappear :) Here is just a quick shot of all the fabric I got while I was there
I have a few ideas for some of the fabric. One of them is this ADORABLE dress!
I also have a great dress pattern to use one of the fabrics for.
I have quite a lot of ideas floating around right now. The goal is to finish the scarf and adorable vest onsies before I start anything new! Oh, and maybe get to those kitchen chairs...maybe ;)
What projects are you working on? Any great craft deals/finds for you lately? Speaking of, I heard of this fantastic website called the plaid barn. Every day they have a new deal on craft supplies. It is great! They shoot you an email with the deal in it and you can decide if you want it or not. I love it. So, if you are looking for inspiration, you might find it there. So, check it out!
I hope you are all having such a wonderful day!
With love from Burlingame,
