First sorry about the poor pictures, this camera really needs more natural sunlight then today is offering.
I did a "mini" (literaly) with Rebecca and just look at what she sent me!! A little party in a box.
I wish these pictures were better because everything is so cute. She even included wrapping paper!! The hats are so sweet and look at the ribbon spools!!
The cake is from Turkey Feathers I am such a spaz that I feel like it was made by Martha herself. (I would rather have this mini one) My little piece of fame. If you have not seen what they make you have to look because my pictures do not do this cake justice!! Thank you so much Rebecca you out-did yourself!
Shay, thanks for clearing up: why hang a skirt overnight before you hem? Shay said in the comments for those interested....
"Skirts that are not cut on the straight of grain, IE that have bias or half-bias seams, need to "hang out" (no pun intended) to allow any residual droopiness to appear before they are hemmed." Thanks so much and I waited and hemmed it and there is no droopiness!!
Roxanne: I actually made the Garden bag for my sister's birthday, so no I won't be using it in the garden. But how chic would I look gardening with that bag? You know in case BH&G happened to be driving by to photograph me.
Our flooring is half in-in our lower level if you remember our flood so long ago. The whole process is taking longer then we'd like, but when you do your own work that is what happens. So I still have no place to sew and most of my stuff is in boxes in the garage. I have managed to drag out a fair amount that has multiplied in our living room.
On the note of things in disarray I thought I would list all the things in disarray (okay they are downright broken) right now:
1. Both washers (yes I have two) are not working- one leaks and the other just spins-no agitation- which is agitating to me
2. Both dryers: One is apart awaiting new parts and the other takes three years to dry a load (slight exageration but you get the point)
3.Stove: Only two burners work-the other two have been replaced once already and they just fizzle out.
4. Vacuum: The dirt bucket part is held on by packing tape which has to be replaced each time I empty it and yesterday the plastic deal that holds the wand thingy broke- I guess it wanted to be taped on like the bucket. Sheesh I hate plastic.
5. The letters: L and V and the space bar on my laptop have lost there keys and they are really hard to get back on properly once they pop off. It is so hard to type like this... You have push harder on these spaces to get them to work.
So whah whah for me I am going to go have a pity party for myself with my new miniature party supplies!!
