Damn stupid knee pain for keeping me up all night again tonight...
the wonderfully tacky 1971 felt & sequin calender is done! Now to
bring down the property value of the house and hang it on the wall...
project is to spiffy up the plain heavy canvas reusable shopping bags I
got--rumor has it that the next thing our state will outlaw is paper
and plastic grocery bags. They're trying to get people to bring their
own bags to the store and use them, and phase out those damned plastic
bags, something I heartily endorse. Towards that end I got some
vintage-y iron-on transfers to put on my canvas bags. It's called, 'A
Chicken's Romance' and is hopelessly cute.
got them off ebay, the only hitch being that one--the 'Cute Catch'
sheet--is missing. But I'm sure the seller will make good on it. The
seller has a cool thing going where she takes old designs and reprints
them. I figure 'A Chicken's Romance' is from the 40's.
is showing an interest in needle arts and knitting/crocheting, so I'm
going to try and set an example by doing. Figured for her I'll give her
some really simple and fast flowers and things like that to embroider
so she doesn't feel overwhelmed and lose interest.
hot on trying knitting, but I don't know if she'd have the patience of
dexterity for it quite yet...I may see if I can nudge her towards
crochet for now.
