Rainy days & my sewing machine!

I had a lovely day yesterday...me & my machine. I finished many projects and hope to tackle a couple more today. It was a great rainy day...grab a cup of tea, put a fire in the fireplace, attired in those lovely sweatpants...you know the ones with the holes, too short, paint on them and the elastic waist is shot...ohhh love...comfy and ready to sew!

I have a few things i SHOULD finish..but i'm having one of those...LETS START SOMETHING NEW DAYS!!! Anyone else out there in blogland struggle to stay on task?

I love to sew...but the cold hard truth is...I LIKE IT ALL. In fact when i was in college i was a craft major. I know, can you imagine how happy my parents were to spend their money to send their daughter to college to weave! !!!
Well.......i also painted, pottery, jewelry making, spinning, toy making, basket weaving...I know FUN!!!! A little like being sent away to summer camp :) but i LOVED IT!!!

So yesterday..i made a pair of earrings to go with a pouch swap i started over a swapbot. I always like to throw in a little surprise. I think they turned out pretty cute..in fact i'm wearing another pair right now! :)

Also i finished up a coaster swap...made some matching napkins for those. Part of the fun is trying to figure out what your swap partner would like. She likes prims and country...hope she likes these!

A couple of extras for the blu bag that sold....a makeup bag & key fob (could be attached together to make a smart little "to go" bag)

Finished up the makeup bag for the giveaway!!!

Almost time...i'm so excited to see who wins. So many of you have entered and left such sweet messages. Thanks Ladies!

If you still haven't signed up...just leave me a message on my April 3rd blog.

Have a wonderful day.
