Can someone PLEASE explain to me why I often do this, PLEASE! This weekend I went to Edmonton for a friend's birthday and to get some fabric and sewing supplies. I was looking at the wall of sewing tools at the fabric store, saw a tailor's awl and thought to myself, "Hey I don't have a tailor's awl and I really need it!" Bought it, came home and, lo and behold, I already had a tailor's awl in my sewing tool box. Yee-haw! Ugh!

And guess what?! What I really needed was a new pencil sharpener and AA batteries for my computer mouse which of course I completely forgot.

In the meantime please excuse the really blurry photo above and the extreme boringness of my blog. I'm still in the middle of sewing a madness a sewing madness.

Sew need a break

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

The last couple of days I've been taking a break from this

and this.

To do this

and this

looking at this

and making some of these.
Egg tarts, 蛋撻 (dan tat) . YUM!

Don't you hate when this happens. The little Lego heads gets stuck in the little helmets, and you know what works really well to get that head out. Just drop them on a hard surface...FYI.

I am Iron Man

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Lately everyday is Halloween at my house thanks to my parents. You should have seen their faces when they opened up these Christmas presents. I'm beginning to think that my boys were born wanting to be superheros.

Cracks me up every time they parade around the house with this huge Iron Man mask compared to their tiny bodies. They look like bobble heads.

Holidays were officially over on Monday with Darcy going back to teach. So back to routine and back to lots of sewing. If I don't update my blog for a while it's because of the big pile of fabric on my sewing table below.

I can't believe I'm posting a photo of my craft/work room on the www. It's such a mess. I thought about tidying it up and making it look magazine like before I took this photo but I thought the Where's Waldo like feeling of it was so much better. *cough..cough*
