Big Pillows for Little Heads

Made some pillows for the nieces. They promptly fought over who would get the one with the birds on it (the one which I love and thought they would hate).


Made an envelope cover for my mom's travel pillow because, well..I could.


Also, my brother climbs trees and cuts them down!


I should have some more substantial items to show next week or the week after. I am staying surprisingly busy despite my unemployment. I have a job prospect, but nothing concrete yet.

Take care, my friends!

Hello, my friends

First, thanks for the well-wishes in the last post.

Although I enjoy hearing the owls hooting at night, and the eagles calling in the morning, I do miss my friends. It is a lonely life, out in the country.

My running is improving, but I was a bit too lazy about it last week, and slacked off. The week before that I was visiting my grandmother and only ran one day. Wah. That's my fault though.

I have finished some knitted things, but I have been working on the sewing mostly.

Nearly finished a bag, although I am not happy with it. If you look closely you can see the pins. I am very proud of making the pleats though.


Made a tote bag out of a batik that I wasn't wild about. Misread the instructions and screwed up on one of the sides, so the bottom panel is a little off, but it isn't bad.


Made some kitchen towels with a decorative stitch, just to practice sewing in a straight line.


I can barely walk in a straight line on most days (just clumsy, folks), so I'm not sure why I expect to be able to sew in a straight line.

I think I might try to apply for a specialist position at the nearest Target since my job hunt in the corporate sphere hasn't been going anywhere.

Take care, my friends.
