don't have a stroke


Yes.  This is the third time I have posted this week.  No one die of shock. My track record over the past few months has been pathetic at best.  But I think I may be getting some creative mojo back.  I started with some small projects.  Those work best for me.  And Erin inspired me to make a new camera strap.  I made one a few years ago  when I first got the camera, but I like to change things up a bit.  Can you believe I am as ADD about a stupid camera strap as I am about the purses I carry and shoes?  Okay, maybe not that far of a stretch.

Above is a bit bigger project.  Soon it will be the red heads new bedspread.  Its simple and pink.  Just the way she likes it.  If only I were sewing it as fast as she would like. So here's to some renewed crafting.  I am a MUCH happier person when my sewing machine is humming and my children are not staging some sort of a mutiny.  Aren't we all?

Yes we are. I notice my machine is getting dusty. I have been so wrapped up in getting the yard done and the garden done. NO TIME! Plus my arms and legs hurt so bad at the end of the day, I don't think I could push the pedal. wink*

Oh how I wish my machine were humming. We are on week 3 now of waiting for the repair to be finished. Le sigh.

The new bedspread is going to be so cute. I can't wait to see it finished. Hey, no pressure though. :)

Happy you are crafting. Mo will adore the pink bed cover- especially when it is wrapped around her.

Oooh. Pretty bedcover. And camera strap. Crafting always lifts my spirits. Finding that 25th hour is the hardest part! Good luck! xo

lol, I hear the mutiny thing! I try to sneak down to my sewing room when my girls have gotten busy with friends and such, if they aren't busy I usually don't get much sewing done!
that looks like it is going to be a cute bedspread, and I love the camera strap, and trying to find a tut now so i can make one!
Have a good weekend!

I've been seeing a lot of cute camera straps and cozies around lately. Yours is one of them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad you're sewing some stuff. Yes-I'm happiest when I'm creating and my children are being civil little human beings. LOL!
