(Hope may have been the wrong word for me! I’m not quite that sappy on a daily basis. What this image has to do with hope, has me stumped. Ummm … I hope someone besides me cleans these up?)
I am upcycling wool sweaters again, which translates to –> the kitchen is a freaking disaster zone!
I know I said, “crafts schmafts” (and I meant it when I said it), but I somehow find my way from one craft site to another, they are creating great things, and I just can’t help myself. I MUST sew! Mmm … Esty, I love it!
Sadly, I’ve nothing to show you except the button mess above. I don’t think I am one of those people who can take you photo-step by photo-step through a craft project, while actually completing the project. Every brain cell available is focused on the project (to hell with the children!). The sewing machine operation has me totally out of my element. I couldn’t possibly operate it and use a camera (or parent) at the same time. I don’t even breathe while I sew. SERIOUSLY. I hold my breath and pray with each seam. It is terrifying.
I’ve discovered, using a sewing machine seriously stresses me out. My heart pounds, I sweat, it feels like my first driving lesson. Thank GOD there are no other ‘sewers’ on the road, because I would have zigzagged them to death. It would most likely be classified as a ‘sew and run’, because I stop for nothing but ginormous swigs of ice water (I’m sweating remember!). It’s sewicide for my nerves. Yet, I shall persevere.
I’ll quit yakking about my terrify afternoon of crafting and get to the really important stuff, like the winner of this week’s ‘Happy Book Day to You ~ the Series‘ giveaway.
The winner is:
