I think we've looked at more homes in the last week than we have in our entire lives before then.
We have finally found one that we put an application in for, and tomorrow we'll know if it will become ours (to rent) for the next 18 months.
Nightimes and very early mornings have been quite productive for Blossom and I. It helps to keep busy when your life is a bit topsy turvy!
Look what we've made...
Blossom loved the look of THIS tutorial and made her own version on some baby shoes...
...and then she decided to play with a tiny pack of 2 1/2 inch Frolic squares that Dawn sent her. She made the sweetest fabric envelope (her own pattern!)...
Then she gave it to me. :-) I'm going to put all the lovely little notes she writes me inside it.
Have I ever told you that I have a real zipper-phobia?? Well, I truly do. I hate them - they scare the bejeebers out of me! When Blossom and I made those clutch purses the other day (you can see them HERE) I finally began to build confidence in working with those zippered teeth.
I found THIS tutorial and increased my zipper-skills by making two really sweet cosmetic purses last night...
...then today I finished my Handkerchief Purse (a gorgeous pattern of Judith's). I had done the stitchery months ago, and had the fabric chosen for the finish, but just kept holding back because of the stupid zipper. Not anymore! \o/ All my beautiful vintage hankies now have a safe and pretty place to dwell.
Not content to stop whilst I was on a roll, I decided to make another zippered purse, this time using my own 'Little Bird In Tree' stitchery...
Oh, forgot to mention that I coloured my stitchery, too. Those Golden Delicious apples look scrumptious!
Have you begun your July Challenge yet?
Look at Heike's beautiful pillow! She has made my little design her very own, and I love it!
Tonight I am going to rest. We may have many days of moving ahead and I think I can slacken off a bit with the sewing, don't you? (But I can hear Blossom turning pages in pattern books....)
PS: I was asked if it was ok to use green for the leaves in the Daisy-Do BOM. Dear friends, please use whatever colours you like - make the block *your very own*. Give yourself permission to be creative. :-)
