Photo 8

20 Feb

This shot I got accidentally. I was home with the boys today and knew I was going to be limited to my house for any pictures. I was a little grumpy this morning and feeling uninspired but had taken some hand sewing outside with me while the boys rode their bikes. I set it down on a dresser we have in the garage that needs to be refinished and inspiration struck. I had to be quick though because every time Monkey sees the camera come out he tries to get in the shots.

I have a new love for mason jars thanks largely to Pinterest and I am happy with the lighting on this one. I really need to try to get the boys to go for a walk around the block so that I can find more things to shoot, my only worry is while I’m focusing my shot they will be off and going without me. A vacation would be nice too to get away into different scenery, although that will have to wait until May.

In sewing news, I am almost done with my little hexie holder which is good since I started another hexie project today. I have a pillow that is in dire need of a new pillowcase so i decided to whip one up. Something sort of like this

I found this from film in the fridge, she has made some beautiful quilts and has some great tutorials. Anyway, I like this idea however I want the hexies all the way to the left edge and of course mine will be different colors to match our bedding and I don’t plan on putting an edge to it but I just wanted to show where I got my inspiration from.

And now it’s time to finish my little holder before heading off to bed. Tomorrow is going to be a long day at work and home. Thankfully I work with coffee so I’ll have plenty of fuel.
