Sewing and Beading...
My little dress sewing is done for now. Not by choice but by necessity. I was sewing along and BOOM! My machine had a metal on metal wreck and is now in for service. I was able to sew four dresses for Dress a Girl Around the World. Hopefully I was also able to introduce others to this wonderful charity project and they will contribute. My daughter actually bought this little fabric for me years ago and it was just the perfect adorable addition to sewing a dress.
This is one of the four dresses I sewed. I had fun putting pockets and ties together. Thinking of the girl who might wear this dress and hoping it brings a big smile to her face along with lots of love into her heart.
I also did a tiny bit of beading. A friend had a very small childhood necklace that she thought would be fun to wear from time to time however it needed to be restrung and lengthened. I selected some very small silver beads to add to the tiny little faux pearls and hopefully she will like it as much as I do. It can always be put back together as it was when she wore it as a little girl.
Now it is time for me to sort and purge my office desk. Not something I look forward to doing but it is necessary. I don't know why I save every little scrap of paper and paper clip and...and...and!
I hope you are enjoying your Summer/Winter and Creating what You Love. High on Life July...

I save every scrap of everything and then I can't find anything. It's a vicious cycle. The dresses are lovely. Hope your machine is fixed quickly. I'm sure your friend will love the necklace. Best wishes, TammyReplyDelete

I am neither thrifty nor frugal so why I feel compelled to save every envelope, scrap, button ETC. is beyond me. LOL If you figure it out I think you should write a good explanatory post! ;^)ReplyDelete
