It would seem that a stripy Pixel Cat has taken over my worktable.
Because, if my kitties are any indication, there are very few things in this world more comfortable than lounging on a lumpy bed of WIPs. (In his defense, he did pick the cushiest project in the pile.)
So, how was your Sunday? Filled with cats, and crafts, and springtime adventures, I hope!
P.s. Before you ask, no, he’s not wearing nail polish. That stylish mani is actually a set of pink Soft Paws claw caps (his favorite color). Pretty fancy, right?
The cats have taken over the craft studio and springtime allergies have taken over my brain. (Ugh. Blooming trees sure are pretty and all, but COME ON. I’m ready to stop feeling like my face might fall off.)
Luckily, pretty much all I’m doing at the moment is cross-stitching, which requires relatively little movement and/or brain power. (Did you hear? I’m writing a cross-stitch book!) So, thus far, most screw up-related stitch removal and its accompanying creative swearing has been kept to a minimum.
Right now, I’m wrapping up a quiet Sunday and getting excited for the creative plans I have scheduled in the coming week. Tree pollen permitting, there’s a whole lot of fun in the works!
I hope you’re all getting ready to have a great week too! And, if you’re also on Team Ugh My Sinuses, try not to let those histamines get you down. xoxo
Oh, look! My lipstick matches my spool of thread! (They’re Gütermann thread in color 430 and Burt’s Bees lip crayon in Napa Vinyard, respectively.)
Don’t you just love it when that happens?
On Friday, my pal Rachel and I kicked off the first weekend of the new year with a tote bag-making party, and I stitched up this fancy canvas fox tote! (Okay, the fox fabric is fancy—the tote bag was actually ridiculously easy to sew.)
I think it’s a pretty good sign for the coming year that my first finished project of 2015 was something that I made just for fun, don’t you?
Note: Just in case you’re dying to sew a fox tote of your own, the fabric is Foxsimilies from Charley Harper’s NURTURE Canvas collection from Birch Fabrics.
