is what I'm doing. I have all of the tulle cut out and sorted into individual bags, the elastic cut and sewn into the circle and am about to get started on the tying. (I'll try to take pictures throughout and do a quick tutorial, just in case you would like to try to make one. Meredith & Lotta.... you guys can whip one up for your girls if you want... no sewing involved!).
Anyhoo....... I'm pretty much doing anything I can to keep from getting started. I wish I knew why I procrastinate so badly.... it's what I'm about. In fact, one of my very favorite sayings of all time is:
"If it wasn't for the last second........ I'd get nothing done!"
And that's the truth.
So, while on the subject of procrastination.........I made this when I got home from Church:
It's already on Etsy and will hopefully sell as easily as the rose one I made yesterday. It's a biggun at 33" long from the top of the strap to the bottom of the bag. I love the colors as well and really should keep it as it's the last of this tablecloth...... but since buying my beeee-u-teeee-fool Ball bag from Rhiannon....... I don't need to!
Oh, on the shop front..... time is ticking closer to the day we open! We plan to open on September first.......which of course I haven't even checked to see what day it falls on yet, but whatever. My Angel of a Husband built our office walls last weekend and is at this moment building the shelves for the shop. Here is a rough shot that I took this morning.
He made the back with bead board which matches the walls of our office. He still has one more left to build and then he wants to put some trim along the edges. We plan to paint them a nice smooth vanilla-ish color. (Our walls are turquoise!). I had one little bolt here and the house and so I ran in to test it and then take a picture to share with you guys). Next weekend...... WE PAINT! Then the next weekend I guess we get to start "playing shop" and set everything up.
I counted the other day and so far we have had about 117 bolts of fabric delivered plus two bolts of muslin. I also ordered lots of notions the other day and of course yummy patterns. We also have some great smelling triple scented candles, notecards and some great patterns from Sublime Stitcheries. I hope it all goes well for us!
Well crud. I guess I have to go get to work. Amelia is asleep and both boys are with their Dad today and of all times this is the best to do work. Have a great Sunday ya'll!
