I will be needing to make one my own travel journal as seen here. I don’t tend to get into the whole scrapbooking thing very much, but remembering your travels definitely calls for something special. I like the list element of the journals. I spotted a list of things I like, what we did today, what I am wearing. Listing things would be a fun and easy way to keep track of everything.
I need to make one of these journals because very soon Adam and I will be going on our second (in almost ten years) vacation together. Whoho! we have tickets to the opening game of the Oakland Athletics out in California. We are in heaven for this vacation. One of my brothers lives in San Fransisco so we may stay there a few nights and visit. I will also be checking out all the fabulous shops that I read about on this SF girls blog.
Heather Ross’s new fabric line that hasn’t been released yet is killing me. I will be in sewing heaven once I get my hands on this aquatic themed fabric. Did I mention I love swimming?
I’ve been running home from work everyday desperate for the aqua and peach colored yards of gauze I ordered from Denver Fabrics to make these quilts.
Last weekend we were on the hunt for sea glass. I've been looking to add pieces to my sea glass collection because I have been thinking about sewing seaglass into aqua gauze.
Oh yes, and if you are still reading with me at the bottom of this super big post I discovered something I didn’t realize about iron on fusible webbing and appliqués. This is probably nothing new for a lot of you crafters and maybe if I read directions more carefully I would have picked up on this months ago. So when I am about to do some crazy appliqué that requires fusible webbing I have been doing the following: cutting out the shape in the fabric, then using the fabric as a template to cut out the shape I need for the webbing, then ironing etc. I struggle insanely with trying to cut out the webbing as closely as possible to the fabric shape and it results in loose fabric and stickness on my iron. Soooooo…even though this is somewhat a waste of fabric and webbing, I started to: take the fabric I want to make a shape from and before I do any cutting- I iron it onto webbing ( I’ve been using the two sided Lite-bond kind), then I cut out the shape. This method keeps the shape perfectly covered in webbing. So cool. I hope my explanation makes sense.
