A friend of mine recently added a grandson to the family. She wanted a ‘boy’ bib and asked if I had anything I could whip up. That’s all I needed. I was sure I had a fabric to fit the bill.
Here is a ‘boy’ bib with spaceships on a blue background. I also made a burp cloth to go with it. I hope she likes them.
Yes, we love our fleece throws. All of them: camping theme, Christmas theme, plain ones, fancy ones. We use them almost every day.
Sit on the sofa, oops – forgot my throw, get back up, grab one and sit back down. They are so snuggly and make TV-watching so much nicer, don’t you think?
Riley likes them too. He tends to use them as chew-toys. Yeah…not good.
By the way, today is ‘clean-the-basement’ day. Lots of de-cluttering going on. And a ton of dead bugs and cobwebs are going bye-bye too. It feels good to be doing something productive. And something that’s almost craft-related. That’ll be next. And I can’t tell you how excited I am to be going in that direction.
The photo? Not my space. Wish it was. That’s the sun room / enclosed porch at the Essenhaus Country Inn in Shipshewana, IN. We spent a long weekend there a couple years ago. I love the space: lots of windows for natural light, white bead-board, wooden floors. Wow. THAT would be a great workspace,wouldn’t it?
With the revival of my crafty spirit, I’ve found it necessary to re-evaluate my craft space. It’s not really a ‘studio’ per se (although that sure sounds nicer and more professional than ‘space’). But it IS a dedicated area to me and all my craftiness.
Right now, it’s an absolute mess. Located in a corner of my basement, it’s been left untouched for several months. Spiders, bugs and cobwebs have taken over. I’ve piled things on top of piles thinking I’d be back to put them away. Sometimes that happens.
So…it’s time to get serious and get things put away and cleaned up so I have room to work. Clutter is not good for the creative spirit.
Speaking of new studios and workspaces, Alicia has a new office/studio and Anna Maria is converting her attic into a new creative space. Jealous. That’s what I am. Jealous. But I’m happy for them. Can’t wait to see Mrs. Horner’s space once it’s finished.
Okay…I’m off to work. Have a great day…and make something!
Yes…it HAS been a long time since I’ve posted here.
Since taking a long hiatus, it only seems natural that I’d return. And so I am. Sort of. I am working on a new blog site. It won’t be here at Blogger. I’m opting for a self-hosted blog using WordPress and a Woo Theme. I think you’ll like it.
So…buckle your seat belts: it promises to be a bumpy (yet fun) ride!
