Doing more blog searching and doodling, just so I don't start my study (Library Technician), which really I should do, but I'm doing this instead! Found this blog Best of Etsy who writes up her own favs. I love the cardstock and the pincushions and the pencil art and the brooch/earings. Wow! So many things I would love to buy. Handmade things are so interesting/unique/madewithcare/personal etc etc - maybe that's why I love looking through my extensive list of crafty blogs, to see who made what next. I know I only have a few listed on my site - but I will list more!
Softies do it for me - they make my heart melt - I love cute ones, ugly ones, and all in between!
Monday Blog Treat - ACE!
Working more on my Cookies quilt - called that 'cause the fabric is from 'Cookies and me' by My Sister and Me. I'm up to machine quilting it - simple in the ditch and diagonal lines, but they were starting to buckle and looked crap - lots of unpicking and redoing - I don't enjoy this part of the process - it will never look as professional as the professionals - (who'd think!) - but this quilt is for my girls' school fair craft stall - enough money has been spent on the material/batting etc, that $100 more for quilting is out of the question. I just want it to look good - not perfect - perfection is not my goal, but Not Crap! (Excuse my french, if that offends!) I've got 'til March 18 to do this quilt and to baste, quilt, bind a 'Funky Monkey' quilt, multiple aprons made from cotton drill, and other little bits and pieces - all by March 18 Arrrrrrrrrhhrrrh! Don't panic - I'll do it!
