I loved Jes' post about needing to have an artistic outlet every once in a while. I wish mine was as easy to clean up as her writing is! I love crafty things with beautiful fabric or paper but projects involving them tend to be a bit messy. I tried to be content with a "digital" craft but alas the lure of the fabric store and unending Pinterest ideas won out.
Witness the great fabric splurge of 2012:
|Ahhh. A thing of beauty, no?|
Reality set in though as I attempted to spend one Friday evening sewing and instead spent it putting children to bed and back to bed and back to bed again. Then, as I can't stay up all night like I could in the "olden days" the project sat unfinished on the dining room table until I couldn't stand it anymore.
It's not all I had hoped for or planned but it was fun and we all have new library or meeting bags. And I have a nice little stash for when inspiration and opportunity meet again.
|For Malia of course|
I LOVE my new library bag. Actually it was meant to be a gift but I couldn't bear to part with it. Sorry, anonymous person...maybe I can make you another one??
