Go To Your Crafty Place

For those of you who wondered what I would do if I didn't work on eBay, this is the answer...I would throw myself into crafty crafts. This weekend, we constructed Vin's Transformer's costume, I made this dress for Mattie to be the American Girl, Samantha, and while I waited for the paint to dry on Vin's costume, I finished the grouting on my mosaic table which I began so long ago. Since I had some grout left, I went ahead and started the other mosaic project that had been brewing in my mind, but I'll have to save up for another tub of grout to finish it (and sell it on ebay, hopefully!) While I waited for the grout to dry, I felted (ie, washed in hot water and dried) a stack of wool sweaters I have been stock-piling to make a few more sweater quilts, so nice for this time of year. I owe my sister one, as well as one for US, since I gave the ones I made last year away for Christmas. I still have one more costume to procure for Vin's reading character costume for school...which I am already plotting, using a pair of panty hose and some hats...you'll see....

Great costumes! Your a good seemstress...I know how to sew back from those days of making all our clothes, but I would rather have my eyebrows plucked out one by one!
