- The Halloween banner last week
- The conversion of a tshirt my husband gave me over a year ago- he wanted short sleeve instead of long (not crafty but had to be done since I found it!)
- More non-craft but MUST BE DONE: Hemming up a pair of jeans I bought LAST summer...yep, they've been languishing for over a year. I'm not a seamstress by ANY stretch and doing things like cutting off 6" of a pair of relatively expensive pants stresses me out a bit... so I don't do it quickly. Why buy them? Because I tell myself this will be the time I'll hem them with no reservations. Uh huh. Sure Jen. You keep telling yourself that.
- The continuation towards completion this week (I hope) of a Halloween project I started a few years ago. Yeah. A few. Like... 6 or 7 probably. Yeah. It's bad. I do that- I start something, get bored, decide I don't want to sew anymore (Did I mention REALLY don't like sewing), whatever, and the project gets dropped for a year or 6. And there's another part of it this project I started and can't even find. *sigh* This is the pattern the projects are from:
- A big pile of lightly felted sweater pieces on my table being turned into felt leaves. I'd love to show you a picture but darn if I can lay hands on a camera right now. I picked up a few wool sweaters at Good Will the other day and tried felting them in the wash. 1. Hmmm... put them in a tied up pillow case when washing so the PILES of lint that come off don't go down the waterways? I wish I'd known that before I washed them 4x. Hopefully it wasn't enough to foul up our washer lines!!! 2. Top-loading washer= good for felting. Top-loading washer without the central spindle= not so good- there's not as much agitation= lightly felted. Adding golf balls to the pillow cases before tying helps and didn't seem to bang around in the washer too much... I hope.
Hope you're all having a good week! I'll get some pix up when I've got some goodies to show and I can uncover a camera.
