I threw a birthday party for my 2-yr-old nephew, Nathan, yesterday. We had the whole family over and everyone chipped in. Mom brought balloons, sister did the cake, lil' bro brought soda and Nathan's ma & pa provided the food. All that was left were the decorations and favors -- a far easier load than anticipated. However, I'm afraid I may have gotten all of the credit. So, this being my one public forum, I'd like to thank everyone for the help! Happy Birthday Nato! -- and all of my love to your mom & dad!
On a different note, Laura has posted some new photos of her home, including the bedspread curtains I was telling you about. She'll be stuck in bed for the next number of days, so send her well-wishes and some links to fun stuff (she has the company of a laptop with wi-fi). Have I mentioned that Laura is great? Laura, Laura, Laura.
And, lastly, after a number of requests, I've added a Yo-Yo Tutorial to my sidebar. Yo-yos are among the simplest things to sew, so the tutorial is quick and easy. There are, however, some helpful tips about stitch length, and the beginnings of a project gallery at the end -- I'll add more yo-yo projects in as I complete them.
that I was able to use one of my own fabrics in the tutorial. And, not in a sneaky, you-can't-really-see-what-I'm-talking-about kind of way, like the last teaser. Instead, there's a nice, crystal-clear peek at one of my polkadotty paisleys (in brown), so go check out the tutorial!
Oh, and no, the green polkadot is not mine. <!-- ckey="5CC96513" -->
