An Experiment

August 20, 2007

I left work irritated after having to stay late, annoyed by a meeting and slightly stressed by two projects. Thankfully, traffic cooperated and I beat a rainstorm so I pulled into the garage in a slightly better mood than when I left work. I was excited by some burlap I found at Joanne fabric. I bought it not knowing exactly how I was going to use it (I do this more than I should). My drive home gave me a few minutes to think and I came up with an idea. The pups and I went straight upstairs to experiment.

I’m about 90% complete. I used my seam ripper a LOT. But in the end, I think I will be happy with the result. Of course, I already have an idea for how to improve it. Pictures to come tomorrow when the experiment is complete.

On a separate note, I made my first purchase from Sew Mama Sew. It was such a wonderful package to receive. The fabrics are beautifully presented. I highly recommend the site!

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

You can email me at mlynapier [at] pobox [dot] com. Thank you for stopping by!

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
