I’m sharing this with you for two reasons. One, because it is so stinkin’ cute. Two, because I want to make sure I keep the links so I can look at it every now and then and think, “I would really like to make one of those.”
A playhouse to fit over a card table! The first one I saw was here. It includes a garden and an apple tree and all manner of cute cutenesses. Here are two others with crazily adorable adornments.
That is all.
I’ve been working on a sewing project, friends, and it is driving me up the wall. Not the project itself, really, but my sewing machine. To be more specific: my lack of skill and knowledge regarding said sewing machine. The thread keeps going “thwang!” and snapping and tangling up and I’m ready to chuck this project — and the sewing machine. I’m thinking I need to find a new hobby to persue. Something for which I have a skosh of natural aptitude. Before I do that, though, I might try to sign up for a sewing class.
Until then, I’m going to watch some HGTV. Unless I can figure out how to watch “Project Runway” online.
(I think the “Color Splash” guy was shopping at TJ Maxx. Awesome.)
In a moment of daring and great self-confidence, I bought this pattern last fall, thinking that I would breezily make several of them to outfit Poppy for the spring.
I unfolded the pattern yesterday and looked it over. Then I cut out the pieces, folded them up, set them aside and went off to have a bowl of ice cream and a good chuckle at the expense of Daring Nichole. She’s so delusional.
Oh, but that’s not the end! I pulled everything back out today and tried to sew! First I made a crooked denim tube. Then I threw it in the floor and cut out the “yoke” pieces again. And it worked! (More or less.) And then I got confused! And I think I attached it the wrong way! So I stopped!
Now the parts are folded up again. And so they shall remain until my mother-in-law comes over to help me.
