When I walked by the Tiffany store--which was loaded with teenagers, wtf? I was 24 before I set foot in a Tiffany store--I saw that they had an interesting embroidery display. Not sure if this means cross-stitchers are cool--especially since they've mixed embroidery tools with sewing thread, but there you have it. (I didn't photograph the other display with "T is for Tiffany." We were in a crush of people.)
When I was downloading the photo from my phone, I found this picture I took of my aunt's birthday gift. I bought the premade felt purse and pieces, and sewed them together. But, and this is what I am most proud of, the zipper pull was missing from the purse. We bought an earring at Target, well we bought the pair but just used one, and turned it into a pull. Since the balls in the flower centers are beaded, it was perfect.
The house still isn't cleaning itself. Why hasn't the Jetsons become our reality? I think scientists just want to keep women down.
