Hopefully I can get this post out there :)
I haven't had time to do much crafting, I have bookkeeping to do--year end--tax prep stuff...YUK! No fun at all-I'll be so happy when this is DONE!
I have found time at night to practice on my sewing machine! These are my first attempts...they aren't very good...but as they say; Practice makes Perfect-or in my case...Just Keep Practicing! :)
I just drew some Hearts and Stars and made my own patterns...I have to say they don't look as bad on here as they do in "real life"! I have the hardest time keeping my stitch STRAIGHT! And I have the darnedest time stitching my opening closed--it's so OBVIOUS where I hand stitch it closed! :(
Hopefully, in a few months, (or by the looks of these-a bit longer) I can look back at these and see an improvement!! I really think I did better on my sheep make-do's, and I sewed everything by hand on those! I know.....I hear ya.......Keep Practicing! ;)
I also wanted to let my 'surprise b-day present' recipients know that I do have everything finished and ready to take to the P.O....but we are having bad weather, ice yesterday and now snow which = BAD ROADS!
I'm not one to drive in this wintry mess...so I have to wait for Steve to take me to the P.O. Hopefully I can get there tomorrow or Sat. I'm sorry for the delay guys!
Well, I hope you all have a FABULOUS Thursday-I sure hope it's more fun than what I'll be doin!!
...bookkeeping awaits me!
