Getting my Crafty Groove on!



After an exhausting couple of weeks with no sewing, knitting or crafting of any sort, I have most of the weekend free. After two trips to JoAnn's and one trip to Hancock's, I have enough "supplies" to keep me busy for awhile. The first project was bulletin boards with pockets for two high school graduates. My two daughters each picked the fabric for one of the boards. As you can tell, they have very similar tastes. In spite of me saying, "How 'bout this? How 'bout this? How 'bout this?" as I held up many different fabric combos, they stuck with their very first choices. Are these girls related to me? The queen of considering each and every single fabric combination before deciding? Oh well, they DID turn out cute.

Next up... A dress for me to wear to a graduation party... TOMORROW!

Those turned out awesome! So do they take them to college? Is it some American custom I am missing? LOL
