I've watched all 3 "Indiana Jones" movies and now I'm on the older episodes of "Star Wars." I've watched romance movies, comedies, TV episodes, ugh I'm bored. And I'm pretty sure I have ADD because I can't just do one thing.
This is a blanket I'm working on. I crochet; I tried knitting and I just can't get it.
Soon to be a scarf I'm making for my friend, April. She's coming to visit this Wednesday, so I have to finish it by then.
This book is sooo good. I highly recommend it, especially if you like Jane Austen. It's like Jane Austen meets Mary Higgins Clark.
I set up a sewing table out in our soon-to-be-sitting room. I will soon have a "crafting closet," I call it, in the guest room. It's a walk-in closet, so I'm going to put in a writing desk and do my best to make it an organizers dream. But, for now I have to use what space I can.
I set up my computer right next to the sewing machine so if I'm working on something and I need to check the tutorial often it's right there next to me. And yes, I have my trusty Starbucks cup, and headphones to listen to music on my computer.
This is what I made tonight. A laptop sleeve intended for Jessica's larger laptop, but it didn't fit :( I'm bad with measurements. For being my first sewing project on my new sewing machine, I think I did a pretty good job.
I put pink felt on the inside, for some extra protection.
No, I don't like pink, I don't know what you're talking about :) The tablecloth was not on purpose, I actually got them for a wedding shower and my friend was doing pink. And the sleeve was not intended for me, although the one I have for my pink laptop is in fact pink.
This has to be my favorite part. It's a darker pink color, by the way. It looks kind of red on here. I got to use the nifty buttonhole stitching feature on my sewing machine and it took a couple (ok, like four) tries, but I got it just about right.
For the full tutorial in the laptop sleeve, go here.
I think I'm gonna make a sleeve for my cell phone. Maybe tomorrow...or maybe the next day. I need to rest more. Like everyone tells me to.
Well, my meds are kicking in now, so I'm off to bed.
