sharing from my heart to yours
So I HAVE still been creating. I just haven't had the success I'd like to have lately! Yesterday I made a skirt for myself. Now it's a shirt. The skirt was sad. No, believe me... it looked like a frumpy sack hanging around my waist. I didn't even dare take a picture! Maybe some day I'll make another attempt! So then I decided to make a shirt out of it. Still not totally impressed.
For one thing, I think I used that wrong material, plus it ended up being a little snug, so once I wash it, it might not be wearable any longer. At least not by me! All this was a frustrating learning process. Not a great day yesterday. I did a few things a little wrong, so now it's more of an 'inside out' style. ;) Doesn't look horrible... but I'll most likely just wear it under something else. The pictures are also horrible. Must have had bad lighting... doesn't show the color well at all.
I like the ruffled neckline idea... but it turned out looking better with the seam showing than without. Once again... I think part of it was the fabric. I also did a little layering thing around the bottom of the shirt... didn't turn out as I planned, but I like the idea.
This is my favorite part. I hope to use this on other things in the future. I guess once I get all these techniques down I could probably use everything in the future! But this rose is what I like best! :) I got the idea from Ruffles and Roses.
The (somewhat) bad day yesterday wasn't help by the fact that both Sky and I have nasty colds. I am feeling somewhat better today, so I'm hoping we'll be over this soon. I was tempted to take a picture of his nose this morning, but I'd probably gross you all out and scare away my readers. I refrained. Poor little guy.
So the worst thing is when you're not feeling great, and neither is your baby, and you're feeling guilty for not getting much done around the house. So today I decided it's the 'do nothing and don't feel guilty' day here! I'm just going to relax (sleeping in SUPER late with Sky was nice!), spend time with Sky, and only do stuff I feel like doing or have to do. Supper is in the crock pot, so that's covered for when my hubby gets home. He didn't get to join us in the do nothing day!
I'm also having a Tupperware Party next week! If any of my readers are interested, you can order from me online. Just email me and I'll send you an invite link so you can place your order!
Hope you all have a great day! It's BEAUTIFUL outside here in the Pacific Northwest, so we may have to go enjoy that! I also should* work on my Pink Project for this week!
*Should, meaning IF I feel like it today! :)
