It's been a busy week here at the Greuty home! For a few days, the weather was wonderful (pardon the alliteration), so we were outside quite a bit. Also, I've been quite preoccupied with my current obsession: Etsy browsing. Seriously obsessed. It's a real problem. Anytime I make a little bit extra in my shop, I usually use that money to buy somebody (or myself) a gift. I have a sister and a friend who are having birthdays early next month, so as you can imagine, I have some important shopping to do. Naturally, I will try and make them something as well, but I so love supporting the handmade business! Here are a few of my favorites that I added to my cart for purchasing as soon as I win the lottery:
|Gorgeous shabby chic earrings from PoshPatina|
|pink studs from baydesign|
|this amazing fabric by Jennifer Pananelli from freshsqueezedfabrics, my favorite fabric shop!|
There hasn't been a ton of time for sewing, or motivation actually, but I did manage to get a bunch of stuff cut out for the shop.
Some of the purses I'm making are going to be hard to let go of. The fabrics and patterns are abs gorg. Lately, I've been making almost all of my bags out of fancy designer fabric, and it never fails that once I finish it, my first thought is: "Ooooh. This would look great with my blablabla shirt and bluedyblooda pants, I probably should keep it." One of these days, I really do need to make myself one though. I hate my current storebought purse, but any crafter knows that you are usually your own last priority. I gotta get on it though. My purse is really ugly.
Sorry if you like it. You can have it.
I need some help! My current slipcover for this chair (this pic is without the cover) is basically falling apart.
I need to make a new one, and I'm thinking something like this:
Much love to my faithful readers! Thanks for putting up with me.
