So far this summer, it’s rained a lot. I’m not just talking a day or two here or there, I mean almost every day since Taylor has gotten out of school (which has now been over a month). Consequently, those fun summer activities (like going to the pool or the zoo) haven’t happened, yet. So the other day, we decided to make a trip to a local museum – The Museum of World Treasures.
If you’ve surfed the internet for aprons, Japanese craft books, or sewing sites, more than likely you’ve stumbled across Amy Karol’s blog, Angry Chicken. Now she’s taking that same friendly tone, projects, and inspiration, that she blogs about and turning it into a book – Bend-the-Rules Sewing.
While working on my swap package the other day, I decided it was time to clear a WIP (work in progress) off my desk. I’m not actually sure if I could consider this a work in progress since all I did was take it out of the package and look at it, but still, I’m happy to report that my Cup O’ Joe mug is complete – and it’s wonderful!
Are you sick of seeing faux sweets yet? I swear, that the items that I’m making for this swap will be coming to a close soon…. well, within the next two weeks (just kidding)! But until then, I’ve made a few more things.
One of the nice things about coming home from being out of town is checking the mailbox. I had a few surprises inside mine when I came home….
If you didn’t get enough of yesterday’s links then here’s a few more that might give you some inpsiration:
I’m slowwwwllllyyyy sifting through emails and reading through everyone’s crafty blogs (even though I don’t always comment, I always visit the URLs that you all post in the comments section) and I’m feeling like I’ve been missing so much! So I thought that I would share some fun links and contests that I’ve stumbled across (I may be posting more tomorrow, I’m only up to the G’s in my feed reader!):
