~ Not Singing the Blues ~

Don't ask me why ... but I had a driving need to sew something other than blue.
I needed to sew some pink and some green and some orange.
I really, really enjoyed it.

It has been 100 degrees here in Southern California over the last few days. I'm so looking forward to summer and its bright happy colors ... and possibly cooler temperatures.

Make your sunglasses happy this summer with these happy cases.

You can find them here!

~ Eight Armfuls of Angst ~

I'm not sure why it took me so long to finish this one, but I have ...

... and I'm happy!!

Wait ... maybe it was because I had tremendous trouble sewing with this lovely blue metallic thread. It pretty much broke one or two times per wave.

I changed to a metallic needle, adjusted my tension about 16 times and yelled out loud to no one in particular.

I finally had a measure of success when I switched the thread to a horizontal rather than a vertical position.

Ah, who cares!

He is done and he is cute as a button (admit it.)

He is also up on my Etsy Shop and you can find him here.

Always.  Worth.  The.  Effort.
