There’s a catalog that comes occasionally (I can’t remember which one) that goes straight into the recycle bin. There isn’t a model to be seen throughout the catalog – just clothes arranged in funny positions. Sure the clothes are cute, but I would never buy anything that just looked cute laying on a table. Why, I wonder would anyone put together a catalog like that? Well now I know why. Because taking pictures of clothes arranged like they’re jumping or shopping or dressed on flat Stanley is JUST PLAIN FUN. I couldn’t stop. I took so many pictures and finally felt guilty that mommy’s presumed “shower” was taking so long.
Anyhoo, I’ve made myself another bag. I had this red sweater and no purse to go with it. Amy Butler’s Lotus fabric in Cherry came just in time! I wanted to make a bag that’s bigger than what I normally carry so I can toss a ball of yarn in there without it looking like the purse is going to burst. And what happens when you buy your normal amount of fabric and try to make a bigger purse? Well, you run out, of course. Well, never fear – that’s when the stash comes in handy. Denyse Schmidt to the rescue!
Okay, I dare you to go arrange some clothes on the ground and start snapping some shots. It’s really too fun.
Oh yeah, and just in case anyone’s been wondering why I’ve been out of commission: Allergy season has started up with a vengeance. On Tuesday I go in for my RUSH immunotherapy allergy shots. I’ll be at the doctor’s office from 8 am to 4 pm. I SOOOO wish I could bring my sewing machine with me! Maybe I’ll bring some pincushions to finish. Other than that, it’s just magazines and DVDs for me.
