There are many days when I really just don't feel like blogging.
Today is not one of those days.
I would be hard-pressed to give an accurate and complete description of what has transpired in the past week or so, but I know it included a medical false alarm for one brother, a too-high-sugar-level for another brother, an 8-hour fever for me, and a whole lot of Wii Fit playing by most of the family. I won't describe any of the Wii Fit game-playing here, because talking about riding a Segway around a city to pop balloons that come up from the ground because evil moles are blowing them from their holes gets sorta ridiculous.
Alrighty then, moving right along.
Voila. I painted.
Cotton-lined graphics tablet sleeve with freehand machine-embroidered tree and "love."
I have a bunch of variations of this sort of thing: laptop sleeve, cell phone sleeve, notebook sleeve, etc. It's not meant to be a bag, just something to protect your stuff when you stick it into a bag you already have.
I'll make you one. Just drop me a line in the comments or my email.
I promise it won't cost an arm and a leg. :D
This skirt used to be a dress, but I cut the straps off and used the elastic back as my waistband and thus converted into a lovely skirt with pockets.
This dress, I lengthened. That bottom piece wasn't there - I sewed it on and freehand machine-embroidered wavy lines on it.
Along with the tons of rain, humidity, mosquitoes, and raccoons that appear in the summer in our part of Texas, we also experience an influx of snakes. It's nice to have dogs around to alert us when snakes are present, and our puppies did just that the other day.
A really terrifying picture next (don't look if you're squeamish or don't like snakes).
Sorry 'bout the piece of grass in his face. My mom shot it with a BB gun while I took pictures (from a safe distance with a telephoto lens, duh).
And that is the end.
