I tried posting this last week, but there were some technical difficulties.
Let’s start out with my new blog award. Soon after I posted the other one, I received one called the KreativBlogger Award!
Isn’t that just a pretty award? 😀 Brenda Myers nominated me for it.
Here’s what I have to do: The rules of this award are to list seven things I love and then pass it on to another seven KreativBloggers.
OK, here are seven things I love:
2) Knitting Looms
3) Knitting needles
4) Crochet hooks
7) Watching my children grow and become their own individuals with their own creativity.
The seven bloggers that I nominate to receive this award:
4) Knitting Without Needles
5) Knitting Muse
6) Cre8tive KJ’s Corner
7) Looms, Boards, and Graciela
Now, onto what I did last week. I sewed. I sewed my very first project with a sewing machine for the very first time….and I made up the pattern on my own! Here is my machine that I have been too terrified to touch for months:
It’s really not so scary when you actually sit down and watch the video tape that came with it to show how to work it. 😛 I really do like it now. We aren’t exactly inseperable, but I am confident enough to have made myself a Bible cover without following any pattern. I sat down and measured my Bible, then applied those measurements to make the flaps that hold my Bible in place, then made an outer cover with a pocket. It also has handles on it. The kids liked it so much that they sorta wanted to steal it. And my MIL who is an experienced seamstress (is that the word?) her whole life, PLUS she works in a factory that sews clothes, was very proud of me. 😀
Here is Sir Thade posing with the finished Bible cover (I told you they wanted to steal it!):
Please don’t pay attention to the crappy linoleum. It’s gonna get replaced…….eventually. 😦
