I've tried to put myself on a fabric buying hold lately, since we have had so many expenses lately. I'm taking a class at night and we are going on vacation soon so a little less paisleys and florals and a little more money in our piggybank. I've really had to try and find ways to use what I have and keep the projects smaller.
I've had this vintage faded red checked tablecloth sitting around begging to be reborn into something other than a boring tablecloth. So I made a little pleated purse from it.
I am now on a pleating spree let me tell you. It is so easy and fun to do that every fabric I pull out I find myself saying, "hmmm I wonder what it would look like pleated."
I call the ants scrappy since they aren't perfect and weren't meant to be.
I've got a very busy weekend planned. Sewing, studying (I'm taking Anatomy and Physiology, boring), hiking, cleaning, squeezing my dog. Sadly, I still have not received my gauze so I can make that soft fluffy gauze quilt.
On a random note, I have become addicted to the ask a ninja website. I love the slogan "You got questions, ninja has answers."
