New toy, big dreams

Well, this beauty showed up at my house last week, a birthday gift from my 2 beautiful daughters and my Mom. (Thank you, thank you, thank you.) I am so EXCITED I could explode! I have been wanting to get into this Etsy thing ever since Sheriece sent me the link about 3 months ago. Oh, the possiblities! I hope my creative juices haven't completely dried up. I have crocheted about 5 scarves for the little kids at a Cherokee daycare center (it is a project here at work, we are trying to get 250 hats, scarves and/or mittens) for Christmas, all of which turned out pretty cute, so maybe I can muster up enough creative mojo to come up with some cute things. Purses, baby blankets, baby clothes, little girls dresses... oh, I can't wait. Now if I can just make it out of the fabric store with some purchases. I am famous for going into a store, spending an hour picking things up, then stop, look at everything in the buggy and just turn around and leave. It drives those who happen to be with me at the time CRAZY! Maybe if I do a few deep breathing exercises before I go in I will be able to make some selections and hit the trail to sewing bliss. Wish me luck!!!

Good luck! I know you have much creativity flowing thru you. I think it looks like fun, although sewing was never my thing! You'll do great.

I LOLed when I read that you sometimes fill a cart and then walk away...oh, we are more alike than you know. I have done that many a time myself. I lose my confidence.

But you are so creative and talented that I can hardly wait to see what you do! Not to put any pressure on...

(And btw, in your last comment on my blog did you mean you hadn't received my card or a card from Judy? Yours was mailed last week along with everyone else's...)

So none of you called me to tell me to take "crotched" out and replace with "crocheted"!!!!!!!!!! Great. I am going to have to delete this blog now and go back into random blog stalker mode. Swear, swear and more swear. Sorry, blog-friends.

What? People still sew? Amazing.

Exciting!

Sometimes you just have to jump in! Maybe you are scared of messing up??? So, start with some vintage sheets that you only spent pennies on. Then if you mess it up you haven't spent lots of money. And if it turns out great then you have been thrifty and repurposed something.

When are you gonna show us what you've been making?
