Well, I have been finding some time to craft, now that I've dropped resumes off everywhere and have got on a few subbing lists and am just waiting to be called, for the moment, and not actively out looking for work for hours a day. So, my first task, I have decided, is to make a cover for my sewing machine. Two consecutive toddler boys has almost been the end of my sewing machine (I should take a picture of the poor beaten up girl for you sometime, but I can hardly bear it). I am afraid, with the sewing machine out in the living room on a desk now that my third, upcoming toddler will be the death of her. Thus, a sewing machine cover to hide away all the interesting levers and switches and bits that come off (there used to be little hinges attaching those bits, but no more). I wanted to make something pretty and fun, and I've been puttering around, improvisationally adding things to this for a few days now. Its 14 x 16, and should cover one side of my machine.
In the meantime, Little Miss Shabby has started up a fun Flikr group for fabric stacks. I had this one sitting around in my shelves, so I thought I would snap a photo of it:
this block which sort of looks like toast popping out of a toaster to me. We shall see . . . its on my list of "things to do eventually" anyway.
