To occupy my time and distract my thoughts, I have been crafting a lot this month. With the help of my friend Amber, I finally opened my sewing machine that I got for Christmas. She had to show me how to thread the bobbin, and the machine, but I can now say that I know how to use it by myself.
We picked up a pattern and attempted to sew a skirt. At one point I may have unpicked the same part 5 times before getting it right. But in the end, I had a skirt and I was very proud to say that I made it. I wore it to church the following Sunday.
Our next craft was for ourselves and Halloween themed. We spent the afternoon pinning lots of pieces of material to a spray painted pool noodle. Please ignore the ugly door. One day we will repaint it.
Today I put together these candy corns with yarn. I love a simple project that doesn't take much effort or time.
Stay tuned, I am attempting to put together a quiet book. I'm working on the first page this week and hope to do a page a week until Christmas... or until I give up. Haha!
