During the day, it's all a fabulous flurry of kiddie pools and sprinklers, watermelon and sunscreen, summer crafts and sidewalk chalk.
And when the energizers crash at night, then it's my sewing & craft time!
Who better to try new recipes and "patterns" out on but myself? Yes, it's such a sacrifice.
I feel like the king's wine tester. Mmmm.... good wine.
I made this necklace the other day, just because I needed a brief change of pace.
It had been too long since my last bead-string-delight.
Then back to sewing!! I got this red material, with smocking at one end, on sale the other day. It just looks so summer-y, so I made myself a dress. Really, this was the simplest thing I could have done with the fabric. I just sewed it up according to my measurements, hemmed, and attached straps.
And the new little apron... which I actually made for The Artist. She can wear it next. :-)
