Oops, wrong definition of crafty. I mean the one that says “skillful or with ability, especially in handiwork.” Yeah, that.
I have been putting the new craft room to use.
I’ve been doing some sewing and mending, and then my friend Denise, Queen of Decoupage, came over this morning.
She decoupaged a picture frame while I covered a composition book to make a journal.
Then we both worked on the covers to our old 1970’s era sewing machines.
I added some printed itty-bitty kanji characters and cutouts of woodblock kimono prints.
But I think my favorite finished project was one I’d been meaning to do for a week.
When I got the sofa, I kept a couple of cushions from the old one.
They didn’t not match or anything, but I thought they’d look better if I re-covered them.
Using this extremely fast and easy method, I whipped out two pillow covers in well under an hour.
I found the fabric in the bargain bin at JoAnn. I wasn’t sure about it at first but it’s definitely grown on me and now I really like it.
Altogether not a bad day’s work!
Knitters, do not despair. I am still knitting away on the ESP (Enormous Stealth Project). It is probably within two weeks of finishing (one hopes). Especially since I go back to work on Monday.
Yes. Monday. Wherefore went thou, summer?
