I sawthis bag yesterday and knew I had to get started right away. Well, that was my first mistake. It was a problem from the beginning. I just couldn't get anything right. Yesterday was a bad day anyway, and this made it worse. As I started ironing my pretty fabrics from Barb, I burned my wrist on the iron. Then I started cutting the pretty fabrics from Barb and cut my finger. Anywho, I got the bag done and actually like it.
This bag does have problems. Of course, they are my mistakes. So, if you see some, please just act like you didn't. I think I have a few people that scan over my work just to critic it. I've gotten some weird comments and emails in the last week. I'm not sure why. I would hope I would never leave such comments or emails to someone. So I leave repeating some famous words my mom used to always tell us........"if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all".
If I loose a few followers because of that..so be it.
Ok, so I saw this on TV this morning and it has stuck with me all day. I want to know what your guilty pleasure is. Of course, PLEASE KEEP IT CLEAN..........mine? You want to know mine? I have several. Some will be a shocker, some won't. Of course, I can only hope no one will judge me for these. (i know this blogging world can be cruel sometimes, i have emails to prove it) Anywho, let me give you a few examples of a guilty pleasure definition.
"A guilty pleasure is defined as something you enjoy, even though you know it’s bad for you."
"A Guilty Pleasure is defined as something that would ruin us if our friends knew about it."
"A guilty pleasure is something you would listen to, but sure as hell wouldn't wear a t-shirt in public of."
"A guilty pleasure is something that I pretend to like ironically, but secretly really like"
They kinda all mean the same thing, but these are some that I found while googling. Mine are as follows:
Rap Music-i know, weird huh......just can't help it, it's stuck with me since high school and no matter how hard i try, i can't shake it.
Grape Smirnoff-in moderation of course, just love the stuff.
Sewing/Quilting-although it's not bad for me and i don't think any of my friends would hate me for doing it. People (many) are often surprised that i quilt/sew.
I'm sure i have many more, and even can name more. Just don't want to freak out my 115 followers. Although, I know all 115 don't follow anymore. Had something to do with a giveaway. haha
So, I want to know what everyone's guilty pleasure is???
Woohoo.........mama's got some new goodies. I was a little disappointed in the fabric selection. It just seemed like I couldn't find anything I "really" wanted. The green, blue and pink/brown are fat quarters. For no particular reason, other than they caught my eye. I can always use white thread. The breast cancer fabric I got for my mom and aunt, I'm going to make them a matching wall hanging. They've both been struck with breast cancer (among other cancers) and their younger sister died of breast cancer at age 38. Also, their mother died when my mother was 18 of breast cancer. So, this will hold a special place in their hearts. And it's a surprise............sooo SSHHHHHHHHH. I also got some yardage of muslin or whatever it's called. And see that shiny silver pad under all this? It's an ironing pad. We all know, I have a very small space to sew in. I had a small ironing board that would go from under my table, to on my table, to under my table, to on my table. Get the point? I hope this works well for me.
This is my current project. Totally my idea and I didn't see this anywhere. Seriously...........most things I make, I get an idea from somewhere. This is for the hubs grandma........she totally loves anything I make. You can tell, she really treasure's it. I made her a summer table runner. I bet she still has it on her table. And just so........it's still summer. Here I have her a Fall hanging or whatever she wants to do with it. It's not finished. Noticed the dead grass at the bottom. If you've been to California in the summer, you'll understand why I made the grass DEAD. I'll post a pic once it's finished.
