I have decided to focus my creativity towards certain persuits. I think making pincushions will be the perfect fall/winter craft for me. I will also be learning embroidery skills as I go along. I plan to make some more cloth diaper burp cloths that not only have the decorative flannel in the center, but I will be adding some small embroidery to them. I am such a novice and pictures will be forthcoming but be forewarned. My work is in the crude stages. Getting my ideas from my head to fabric and needle will be difficult but I have some great help along the way.
I have been Googling for websites with info and have found a few really helpful sites and blogs. I was first interrested in the miniature pincushions from reading Gigglepotamus and seeing a link to Schmaltzycraftsy there. Lauren at Gigglepotamus is very creative and I love all of her work. Jen at Schmaltzy is featured in the book Pretty Little Pincushions and both have Etsy shops. I am not aspiring to have an Etsy shop but I am going to be making my items as gifts.
I recently learned about RSS feeds and am happily enjoying their use online. It’s really cool because I don’t have to wait for a huge graphic laden website to load until I have looked at the feed update that comes to my LiveMail on my laptop. How cool is that? Cooler if we switch back to dialtone!
On the job front, Phil starts tomorrow with orientation and training. We were able to take his tools to the hangar and get a look around. I could see the lights in his eyes as we stood in the hangar among the grease and toolboxes and airplanes. He is feeling much better these days.
Get ready because I am changing the template of this blog and I hope the font is larger. I don’t like the small font and I don’t have time to mess with html stuff. So I just want to switch to a premade template that suits me and my needs. Let me know if you like it.
