Our family never had much extra money when I was growing up and I was always kind of envious of my friends who owned an Easy Bake Oven.
I have started working on a new English paper piecing project again. For those of you who do EPP and have tried the "flatback" stitch for working on curves, it does nothing but frustrate me. So I was ready to give up on this project. But my friend, Elizabeth (@occasionalpiecequilt) walked me through doing the whipstitch. It worked and I have renewed vigor to keep going now, with the goal of using up my precious Oakshott scraps and maybe even making 20 blocks. These fabrics are so beautiful. And SO hard to photograph.
Charlotte has a retro-looking record player, so when I saw this pattern for a pillow, I made it right away. Months ago...I finally finished it this week and it's so cute.
Speaking of retro, I laughed when I saw this.
Yes. Exactly. Hip hugger/bellbottom pants. Long hair parted down the middle.
My mother would have hated this dress that I made in college. Way too short. However, I loved it!
These pictures always make me wonder what future generations will laugh at. Will skinny jeans look weird to them?
When Rene' posted a picture of this mug in her @craft.table.orlando newsletter, I had to hunt one down. Thanks, Ebay.
My brother, who owned many types of birds while growing up (homing pigeons, roller pigeons, parrots, etc.) told me once that he wanted to write a book about birds. I saw this one and thought it would give him a laugh.
Are you playing Wordle? Considering that words were the biggest part of my career, first as an academic typist and then as a medical transcriber, I seemingly have more difficulty with those pesky five-letter words. On the days when Gabe is at our house, I make sure that I have played it first, and then he plays it on another device. He is very good at it and it's fun to compare the words we used to solve the puzzle. This was one of my good days. More often than not, it takes me five tries...
