Yep, that’s me – a guilty blogger. Why am I guilty? Because I don’t participate in tags. Okay, I admit it – tags make me nervous. I’m flattered, of course, but I freeze. FREEZE.
Jenny tagged me
Thanks, Jenny! That is very sweet! While I love being creative, I think people might be surprised at how influencable I am. Case in point: When I go to the fabric store with my friend Cindy, I’ll look at 2 fabrics and say, “I don’t think these two fabrics go together.” She’ll say, “I think they do.” and all of a sudden, I’m thinking, “Yeah, they really, really do.”
Ashley tagged me for
Thanks, Ashley, for the nod. :) It means a lot coming from an amazing knitter and seamstress like yourself. Most of the time I feel like a tired-girl blogger, but your award makes me feel like a rockstar.
And Lisa tagged me for the meme of 8s.
So here’s my 8:
1. I didn’t grow up in Texas.
2. We moved here 8 years ago,
3. after we were married
4. and hubby got a job offer here.
5. Hubby grew up in Texas
6. and has a slight Texas accent.
7. I do not have a Texas accent,
8. yet heard myself using the term “y’all” with my kids yesterday.
And for something crafty? I finished a scrapper apron this week. I’ve been waiting for my dress form to arrive so I could take a picture and the dress form finally came yesterday! I’ve been looking for a fabric-covered dress form that didn’t have all the adjustable cracks in it. I’m usually not one to talk about where I buy stuff, but I know y’all will be curious. And since curiosity killed all them cats over in yonder Hicks county, I got the dress form from PB Teen. It’s slightly smaller than me, but is for picture-takin’ and display purposes, so it’s perfect.
This apron is for Melanie, and she strongly encouraged me to embellish this apron.
Embellishing is a weak area for me, so I tried REALLY hard…
…some pompoms, appliqued circles, and buttons…
On it’s way to you today, Melanie!
