I got up early this morning in the hopes of getting a bit done before the "official" day began. Things did not go as planned however as the image in my mind of what I wanted to create...I wanted to make my first quiltlet or small fabric atc, something like that. it is a gift for a friend...and I could see it perfectly in my mind...did not seem to want to manifest this morning. I started to get very frustrated knowing I had only a bit of time, knowing that I had 4 sleeping children upstairs instead of 1. (We have three of Olivia's closest friends here. Their mommy just had a precious baby boy and is still in the hospital.) Knowing that I wanted to be ready to make homemade pancakes...well, the works for breakfast, knowing I needed to get things ready for the big scavenger hunt we are going on today.
Well, I ended up with this little bag that I will fill either with a few atcs for my friend, maybe some teas or chocolates. ? I used stamps by Cavallini and the ink I used is Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand. I stamped on muslin.
And while it wasn't what I set out to make perhaps I ended up with just what I needed. I even think I will make more of these little bags. Once I let go and gave in to what I was making I had fun working with fabrics and threads. It was a neat change from paper. It made me think of my grandmother and how I used to watch her embroider.
Kelly has the camera so I was forced to use the scanner. I put a piece of the previously made coffee-stained paper on top of the bag while it was in the scanner for a bit of a background.
