Full Moon = Happy ME

Hey all!...there is a full moon tonight and I am full of energy like always when there's one...I am supposedly a moon child and I believe that to be true....I always seem to feel my best when the sun shines in the daytime and the moon shines at of course with all the good feelings comes a buncha sewing and crafty ideas so I have been creating like crazy....
anyway, does anyone watch Project Runway?...I had never watched it before this season (Season 10) but I guess there comes a time for most things...I have been really enjoying this season a lot and always keep myself up to remember my girl Pink Cookie? (my dress form)  well since I now have her I have been wanting so badly to learn draping techniques...Project Runway is so full of other fluff that I hardly get to see them work but I do notice some of their techniques...they do a sketch of what they are going to create before every project...I need to learn that too...One of my back issues of Sew News had some information on draping and sketching but I have a feeling that those techniques are going to be like all the others I learned...all of a sudden!...I read and read but I learn the best by just doing it.....
**Off subject** my huny just came home with a shirt from his friend...He told his friend that I can put his button back on his shirt....I don't even like his friend!!!!!...but I will put the button back on his shirt; just because I'm nice like that...(wink-wink)
I also started a new window treatment for my bathroom but that will be a WIP (work in progress) because I did NOT realize all the ironing involved....I wasn't ready...LOL....
well let me share my projects I have completed this week and stop to y'all soon! :D

Mug Mat...pattern from Sew It All Volume 3

(without the mug) ;)

A coaster I created for myself....this is my pattern and one of my excuses to use rick-rack...
I may create a tutorial for this one....

More mug mats but with my own patterns.....these are so fun to make and they are so useful too....these are going to a good friend of mine over at Bella Card Creations...find her on facebook by searching that name...she has any card you can possibly think of....have a looksee! :)

Multi-purpose roll....this pattern is in Sew It All Volume 2...this one is going to one of my childhood friends....

On a Sunday afternoon

Hey everybody!....this may turn into another vent post so beware....anyways, the bad news first school situation is dire and I have a huge bill that I have to take care of before I can even take my next two courses...I am completely and utterly tripped out about it but I do still have my faith that things will work themselves out....I am also equally frustrated with my job situation.....If I would be able to finally get a job, my school situation wouldn't even bother me in the least...I usually don't talk about these things because it just seems like I am a wet blanket but I am about to burst at the seams with irritation...
My "friends" aren't really cool anymore, even the one who seemed to really understand...such as life right?....they may have never understood me anyways...I don't even visit them anymore and they don't visit me...I have some new friends that are just my style but I don't want to bog them down with this kinda mess....although they may be needing some venting time too...I kinda feel bad using my blog as my diary but it seems that I am comfortable writing my thoughts down here...and plus I need a new diary anyways...the others are chock full...
The good news is I have still be sewing though...I truly believe that sewing came into my life for a very good reason...I NEED to sew at times as it may be the only time the negative thoughts are invisible and I don't feel them at all....The days are still absolutely beautiful with the sun shining every morning....sunshine makes me happy too....I may have seasonal depression (S.A.D) because when the sun doesn't shine and they days are gloomy, so am I...of course my doctor has a wonder pill that promises to make me feel better but I don't believe in stuff like that...just bring the sunshine back and I will be just fine.....Well enough of my rambling and time for some shots of my latest creations....ttys

Whoo me?

What would a honey badger do?

Hey all!  I finally was able to dress Pink Cookie up in her first outfit...(well the outfit is mine but she got to try it on first LOL) huny went through his t-shirts and gave me a bunch of em....I refashioned one into a halter top and embellished the halter with fabric paint...I have since fell in love with yet another thing crafty: fabric paint...its awesome and it lets me make personalized stuff which is another thing I love...I also made a lightweight knit skirt....the combo was super cute together and so comfy.....on another note, only two weeks of class left and I for one and glad...I have had enough of these particular courses and instructors....ttys!
P.S A honey badger will do whatever he wants because he just doesnt care....I must admit at times I just feel that way....Yesterday was one of those days....LOL!...(shrugs shoulders)

Pink Cookie all dressed up!

Me! :)
