>May 1-8: Clothes and Accessories!


 Completed This Week (May 1-8):

 purse <post is coming>
 Painted Lamp {Does anyone know how to make a cute before-after pic using picnik.com?}
 Current Projects:
Travel Placemat for the little one
 – I’ve purchased my fabric, so I just need to get started.
  * Circus by M’Liss Big Top Acts on Blue Cotton Fabric
Spring Top (tie-top tank) – The top itself is done, but it’s held together with giftwrapping ribbon because it’s all I had at the time. I need to get out and purchase some purple ribbon. I forgot to take the shirt with me when I hit the fabric stores yesterday, so I’ll have to remember to take it along to color match.

Future Projects:

 I’m not sure what’s next for me. Obviously finishing up what I’ve been working on. Then I guess I’ll hit the bookmarks or blog-browse until something else catches my fancy. One thing I’m a little tempted by is a runner for our kitchen table. The only caveats are that the table is a hot mess, it’s covered in paper and boxes and what-have-you, and I’ve never had a decorated tablescape before. Still, I’m thinking I *could* do it. No fabric or color choices yet, but it’s an idea.

Other Goals:

  *Run more regularly! I was so close to placing in my age group (29 seconds) in this last 5k. I think there’s no reason I couldn’t speed it up! I want to run more consistently and really push myself.
  *Cook all the veggies we got from the co-op this month. We got a ton of summer squash and zucchini and some bell pepper. I need to cook like crazy this week to keep it all from spoiling!

About anestinthemaking

Hi! I'm Kristi! I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I'm a newbie to sewing and blogging, but I'm excited to get started! Sewing is the first hobby I've really had in a long time. In high school, I sang, I played the piano, I played in the band, I wrote in journals. I went off to college, got married, started a family, and lived a life without hobbies. How boring?! Then I started reading blogs. One thing led to another and soon I was at my co-worker's house borrowing her sewing machine! I haven't looked back since! Sewing is a release for me. It's so much fun to create beautiful and useful things. It's fun to be learning something new, and it's fun to share it with you! So welcome! Take a look around, and let me know you're here! I love to meet people and respond to every message I get! And I can't wait to meet you!
