Being Sick

is absolutely lame.
At least that’s my opinion.
I’ve been fighting a cold for a few days now. I think the most annoying thing is it’s just lurking there, waiting to pounce when I least expect it instead of just becoming a full-blown hurricane.
So here I sit, having decided to take today off, and I don’t feel great, but I don’t feel the absolute worst. Just a little stuffy, a little sore throat, and a little miserable. Blech.
What do you do when you’re feeling not your best?

Two Ways With Frames

So I have this uber-fantastic fabric that I love working with. It’s bright and colorful as well as super adaptable. I’ve made all sorts of things with it.
I wanted to do a little something different, though. So when I was organizing, I found a couple of truly ugly frames. Bought myself some pumpkin orange spray paint and went to town with them. Next, I glued the fabric to the cardboard frame backings. Using some cool buttons someone gave me, I designed a little focal point for one.
I think they will be a fun addition to a little corner of the house that needs some unexpected color.
Here’s a couple of close-ups:

First Onesie Design

Well, here it is: the unveiling of my first onesie design. It’s for a little girl. I didn’t want it to be too girly, so I used a not pink fabric. Sure, it’s got flowers, but it’s bright, and it’s bold: it’s orange! (Can’t go wrong with orange, right?)
But to keep it kinda feminine I used a heart template. I love it. The stitching is a bold orange zig-zag. The backing I used will probably make the edges fray a bit after some washings, but I think the effect will be overall very cool. Kinda vintage, kinda cottage chic. What do you think? More designs to come…
