As planned, I did mostly sewing these past two weeks. I sewed a cover for our kiddy pool. It is one of those inflatable affairs that is over 2mx1.5m, so the cover had to be almost 3x2m.
I also made a mosquito net for our king-size bed, not an easy task moving all that netting about! But I'm not finished with the stuff; I have to make a net "room" (3mX2.8mx1.8m) for our yard, otherwise flies and mosquitos make it too miserable to eat outside. Man, how I wish we had stocked up on some mosquito nets when we lived in Mayotte. They were huge and, even better, CHEAP! *sigh*
I'm a little over "big projects."
I did sew two newborn hats for Coquille's first day...plus a test-run hat that turned out the perfect size for Junebug's baby dolll. LOL
Next up I have to make a new "diaper" bag and repair the nursing pillow I made for when I had Junebug. I would like to sew something for an Egyptian friend who just gave birth, but I need to find some cute, quality fabric first. Not easy at the best of times and not something I feel like doing while hot, heavily pregnant, and car-less.
On the art front, I made some more color charts, more "targeted" ones, kind of like this
. I also sketch cows. I suck at cows. Must sketch some more. Lazy me thinks I should just practice some "cartoony" cows since this book is not about cows. My more studious side thinks I shoud work on getting the real deal right first.
Anyone else want to share their creative endeavors from the past couple of weeks?
