I Took The Day Off Today...



So I could work at home. We're going camping for the holiday weekend and I wanted to spend some time today working on my to do list.

Last night I got my little sewing machine out not knowing what I wanted to do with it. While I barely know how to sew I'll never be accused of being a slow at it. Major lead foot Annie here. I wanted to practice putting some paper through the machine so I made the little ditty above with some vintage wall paper scraps.

I also wanted to make something to hold a gift for a friend so I sewed this up too {don't look too close}...



I'm not sure yet if things are going to work out between me and the sewing machine, it's yet to be seen. It's all dandy until I have bobbin problems and then I want to break up.

I'm off in a few minutes to put my giveaway winner's prize in the mail {hi Cassie!}.



When I return I'm going to start two new projects. One will be using the new 7gypsies paper...love this....



And the new Melissa Frances treasure box. Isn't it pretty?



Enjoy your day!

Lisa;
My relationship with my sewing machine improved dramatically when I finally broke down and read the directions for bobbin care and feeding. If you haven't had your machine serviced and cleaned lately that can make a HUGE difference as well.
Happy stitching!
