Sew Happy in Sewville...
Yes! I am Sew Happy in Sewville! I was able to pick up Pfaff Sew La Te Da Saturday afternoon. I am like a kid in a candy store...and I love candy! Of course now I have my sewing machine back and got it plugged in and find zero time to sit and sew. Go figure as that is why we are flexible in life.
This photo shows the five pillowcases I mailed today to the Pillowcase Project. I don't normally duplicate them however I had the perfect fabric for two identical cases and it worked nicely. I wish you could feel how very soft this vintage fabric is. I sew want those little children in the hospital to rest their heads comfortably and be able to get well quickly and completely.
As I shared on this previous post this is one of the vintage ATCs I created and sent to Kimberly for swapping. I always enjoy Kimberly's ATC swaps and signed up to participate in the most recent. Pink, Black and Bling is what I am currently working on. No sneak peaks yet as I am just beginning them and I tend to create as I go along. I begin with an idea but then I let it flow as I go. How do you create yours?
I received these Vintage ATCs and each one is wonderful. Thank you to M. Buisset (top left), Karla (top center), Kimberly (top right) and Dawn (bottom). I adore each one.
This is a close up of the tiny little charm tag Kimberly made using Shrink Art. "She is an Artist" is just such a sweet and appropriate charm for each of the ATC swap participants. Kimberly always goes the extra mile and does something wonderful for each person. Thank you dear!
I am very grateful for each and everyone of my followers. Thank you for thinking enough of my postings to comment and to visit over and over again. I am humbled by such wonderful compliments on my hair photos I shared.
The days are running their own speedy marathon and I am having a slow time of keeping up. Our weather has been Spring glorious and continuing our California "exceptional" drought. For all of you still snow covered and ice frozen I hope you have Spring and warmer weather very soon. The calendar says Spring will be this week. I hope Mother Nature agrees for so many of you still experiencing Winter. Mr. C and I have been working on the property to rake and gather fallen limbs and debris and leaves and pine needles to keep a clear fire break. I can't imagine our small efforts would be any help in a forest fire however we always do what we can to feel safer. And just like cleaning house everything just feels better afterwards. A few pain relievers and an Epsom Salts tub soak helps us feel better too.
Now lets make beautiful and creative and fun things. Creative Bliss is my Joy. What is your Joy?
