Playing catch up

, ,
If you do a lot of creative projects, you know how easy it is to get distracted. And I've got little, unfinished tasks piling up.

So, today was all about finding the time to wrap those up, which worked out perfectly because my little one took a 3 1/2 hour nap!

If you remember from a few posts back, I wasn't happy with the finishing on my topiaries. I imagined another approach to the base that might work out better. And, guess what? It did!

Check out the yarn-wrapped sphere. It really fits my style (and hobbies!).

I also utilized my old book from yesterday and mixed in a few felt pieces to change the look of the top. I love, love, love the way it turned out.

Also on the list for the day... scarves!! The fabric that I ordered earlier in the week finally came in so I was ready to sew. I thought I'd like the look of a wider scarf and cut all of my fabric accordingly. However, I didn't like the one that I made up - it was too heavy. So, I trimmed down each and every piece! How did I ever survive before my rotary cutter? Do you have one? Don't you love it?

Two more things to share with you today...

My friend and I are planning a monthly creative workshop, open to the community. We've been planning it for a couple of months now. We are providing all of the materials, instruction and inspiration, and refreshments. There will be a nominal fee to cover our expenses, but the product that you leave with will be worth it!

Fun with your girlfriends... Learning a new skill... Leaving with something you can be proud of...

Interested in attending? The first event will be March 27 from 2-4 p.m. Please let me know!

Lastly, just something personal that I'm really excited about. I've told you that we're building a house, right? Literally 85% of my supplies and fabric are in storage. I'm anxiously awaiting unpacking!!

Anyway, here's the first glimpse of my sewing room!

And here's the other side, which will be a play-space for my little ones.

The challenge will be finding the finishing touches to make our spaces blend together. But I'm up for the challenge!

See you next week... with an update on the rug. I promise.
