I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend? I've worked a lot, because there was the "Music Fest" downtown El Dorado. I didn't get to spent that much time with my husband cause of that, which made me a little sad.
Since he is at the police academy now Monday thru Friday, we try to cherish our weekends and having a whole bunch of quality time. But this weekend it just didn't really work out.
We already know we will go to Little Rock next weekend, so that is definitely something to look forward to!
Since I have trouble sleeping lately, I get up during the night a lot, reading or working on some crafts projects. I just recently bought my very first own sewing machine! I'm super happy with it!
I've learned some basic sewing stuff back at high school, and my mom used to show me a few things as well. But I'm not lying if I teel you: It's been at least 17 years since the last time I was using a sewing machine! So I have to get back into everything.
Here are my 2 first "real" little projects. Beginner level of course.
The Buttercup Bag
It's safe to say: This is a Pinterest classic!I never thought I would be able to make something like this. But the pattern is very easy, and Rae made a BRILLIANT job putting together the instructions. I did a "light" version - as you can tell the magnetic snap and/or buttons are missing. But I will definitely make some more, now that I know I can do it!
Please check out Rae's blog and the tutorial HERE!
I like it, M hates it! I did a combination of sewing & knitting. My mother in law gave me 3 balls of different mesh yarn. Since I am not a huge fan of the way these scarves turn out, I wanted to try something different. I like the neon colors on the dark grey!
It's a 14"x 14" - feel free to shoot me an e-mail if you would like to buy it!
