Day 9: Faceless Self Portrait & Day 10: Something I made

i've spent this last weekend upcycling my favorite pair of jeans! they had this big ugly hole in the upper thigh that i couldn't fix.i've spent the past few years looking for a jean skirt that i really like. i wanted one that reached my knees, and had a little flair to it! because it seems like recently, all the styles have been hyper mini, reaching the floor, or skin tight! not for me, no thanks. so here's what i ended up with! i measured it against a favorite skirt of mine, added 2" for hemming, ripped open all the seams, and sewed the bottom of the legs into the gussets i opened up. and ta da!

from yesterday: little izz playing with toys (childhood memory)

and today: watching a television show on my computer while sorting old photographs (technology- which still boggles my mind most days)

Combo! Day 5: Someone You Love & Day 6: Childhood Memory

my bad on the late update!
the someone i love is always supportive of my creativity, academia, and general way of being. and he's never afraid to be silly with me. like eat cupcakes with hello kitty rings on them, then wear the rings all day. as pinky rings. i've never been happier than with my dearest C.and as for childhood memories, i've seen friendship bracelets around the interwebs a lot in the past few months, so i figured i'd try my hand at it too! i haven't made one of these since i was really little. i picked up colors of floss that match yarn colorways i'm particularly obsessed with. this is just the first of the batch!

Day 5: someone you love

all the people i love live far away (wah!) so this is a picture i took a couple weeks ago of someone i love very much!

also, i wish i had those sunglasses too because the orange ones you just cant wear everywhere without getting stared at...

Day 4: Favorite Color

i can never pick just one favorite color, so i decided to go with today's favorite color.

cold beer and new yarn :)

G's day 4

so i was all like ok cool we're starting day one yesterday, and apparently K was all like it's the 3rd of august, i start with day 3 today, and then when I discovered that I was all like oh..yeah... that makes sense...facepalm.... so I have some pictures to share now :)

day one /two (false start): self portrait/what i wore

day four: favorite color

these were taken with my phone so not great quality nor very artsy, but i'm cooped up at work all day, so i am hoping to get more creative with the next days to come!

Day 3: Clouds
at sunset in fayetteville.

a new stitching hobby!

i was given this absolutely lovely sewing machine for my birthday this month! it's a singer stylist 7258, and i completely adore it!

i've got big plans for this machine! and i've already made a bag using this tutorial from //between the lines//.
i've got such a long list of things i want to make now! it's an every growing list, and i can't wait to dive even further in to a new fiber addiction :)
