6/14 Craft Post

Sorry about last week, I actually downloaded the pictures of the little bit of crafting that I got done last week then forgot to post it. Then as days went on it was just too late. I added some flower pictures and one bird picture to make up for it.

Anyway, I finished page 3. I’m now moving on to the next page of the cross stitch. These are the more stitch heavy sections so it’ll probably be awhile before I get to another page.

I lost one of my masks week before last. Somewhere between going home and work it disappeared. I pulled yet another mask I had in the house but it was too damn tight around the ears and I just couldn’t wear it so I went back to the sewing machine to make another one. I made three. I have to admit it was a good way to get rid of some ugly ass fabric in my stash. (I picked it up when I bought a mystery pound of fabric. They can’t all be winners I guess.) These masks have a paper clip inside as a nose guard so it is more adjustable. Now I can have fresh masks as I’ve been wearing the same disposable one for the last two weeks. Meanwhile the manager is giving them away like candy but we have to ask for them and we can’t even get the two per day we’re supposed to. This whole making more stuff for myself thing may actually go somewhere.

I want to use textures to give the pictures a different feel but I don’t want to use any I find online because trying to keep up with who to credit is a pain in the ass. I could have sworn someone was giving classes somewhere on how to make canvases that you can scan for such purposes. but I can’t find it so it may not be offered anymore. As it is, I have other priorities for money anyway so I might just grab one of the canvases dump paint, tissue paper and other stuff on it and just wing it.

Anyway, that’s basically what I’ve been up to. What’s on your craft table?
