Yesterday, I was not fit to be around humans. Have you ever had days like that? Too cranky for words?
I was thinking I had a little too much chaos. In my head and in my house. I have one of those "lists". A kind of wish list. Lofty goals. Things you'd love to get done. So I've decided to actually cross some things off that list. And here is one.
I got this neat wicker basket at a flea market for 50 Cents! Needed a little work though, a little love. I thought it would be a great place to store my ever growing collection of vintage sewing stuff. (crapola) Oh well, I love it. Especially the old graphics on the sewing needles and kits!
I had some cardboard from ordering 8X10 prints in the mail. I slapped some Tacky Glue and some thin batting on them, and covered them with this cute cherry cotton print. (another thing on the list: use up supplies you already have!)
For the piece on the lid, I made some extra pockets. I hate measuring, and usually don't. I just slapped it all on, and sewed it. Then I put more glue on the backs of the cardboard and set them in their spots in the bottom of the basket, and in the lid, behind the existing storage flap.
Ha ha! I love it! And it took about 10 minutes! I inherited some neat things from my Aunt Linda, so I have the letters she sent with them in there too. See that little phone? It opens up and it's a little travel sewing kit!
So, some things checked off, and out of my head. I feel a little better now. :)
I'm a bit more human again.
