Happy Sunday , August 23rd y’all! Such a busy week here… how about y’all ?
I made this while he was still sleeping… it came together really quick though!
I used 3 twist ties for the nose bridge area.. and I just got in some soft round black cotton elastic this week so I was READY! Once cut and sewed… I turned and sewed in the nose metal…
Then following that youtube video I linked above… I played fabric origami and sewed everything in place for MY MASK!!!
See how 3D it sits when not in use! I love how it stays away from touching my face too 🙂
Throughout the week I continued to focus each day on some quilting… I am looking forward to next month when I can hopefully get in for a eye doctor appointment… because I found out my insurance covers a large part of new glasses like these
for about $100 to include the lenses with beefed up UV and blue light protection for my eyes too!!!! This is an online glasses shop where I use my current good fitting frame to find another frame using the numbers inside the legs on my current frame 🙂
Nails got a clean slate and some extra conditioning to my cuticles too with Mineral Fusion … then prepped with alcohol wipes for a nice dry surface to put the new nail polish strips on …
Here are the nail strips and the packaging… with all that comes with them for around $15 from Color Street…
That $ spent … gave me this mani and enough for a future mani or pedi too!!! What a great deal 🙂
I wasn’t due to change my nail color (Seattle Royale had only been on for a week) but it looked rough and I needed the pick me up… Jannessa had just done hers too with some investigation involved in her new set…
She played with the question of “What would she like Color Streets Clear As Day top coat strips or liquid top coat on the new nail strips… She is trying them out this week to see which way wears best 🙂
Doesn’t she have awesome nails!!!! Wanna try a FREE SAMPLE mailed to your home of these nail strips??? I can make this happen if you leave me a message you are interested … we can message each other to get and give info for you to get a few to compare to traditional polish wearing 🙂 <<<
If you use Blogger and are experiencing problems… PLEASE TAKE TIME TO
From inside your own blogger account *if you use blogger that is* you will notice a ? with a circle around it .. when you click on it you get the option to leave feedback… they can’t hear us belly ache over the issues new blogger formatting has if we don’t tell them!!!
For instance I am still having MAJOR issues with photo uploading.. so I am doing this in batches depending on time and topic this week… going a bit easier but slow for sure!!! So tell those that can help is my advice.
In July when my daughter came to visit we started making a wallet for her fiance’s cousin… He loves anything to do with aliens so Brandi drew out the alien head and I appliqued it on the wallet front.
So yesterday I decided Brandi needed a holder for her sewing machine manual, bobbins, and attachments… I found this pattern HERE by Sew Can She… this link includes a Youtube video link too 🙂
This outside fabric Brandi had fallen in love with while she was here and it fit perfectly for this make!
And see how nice it holds all her stuff… it can go in that case that holds her Singer 401a vintage 1956 sewing machine too 😀
Digging around SewCanShe’s website I found this cool BOM for about $8/month for 12 months…
Moving down a bit now…
And a right handed shot too … moving even lower on the heart center…
I should be done with the heart next week… so hopefully my daily slow stitching will show more NEXT WEEKEND 🙂 My goal was to be done with the heart by the end of the LOOOONG month of August leaves… we shall see!
And here is the meme that helped me kick it up a notch this week to get so many different things completed this week…
I will be making an appointment for a shape up trim… so this made me laugh! Do you have Covid induced lack of hair trimming … or are you in shape??? I am curious !!!
I am so excited you decided to stop by my blog… Now leave me a note so I know you were here! 🙂
