They're just quick, doodley sketchy things but they serve to illustrate my obssesion.
Very cool, Pag!

The programs actually give you some cool stuff to work with. You just have to be willing to let go of a certain amount of control and not be overly worried about precission. A lot of the brushes have some sort of randomness to them that you have to work with. It keeps things interesting and I find it a fun little challange to figure out how to maipulate that randomness to my advantage.

I have several drawing apps for iPad, you are inspiring me!

I had my eye on a pretty set of sheet for a while. Today while at Walmart I found one set of these sheets on the clearance table. For $13 I got a set of double sheets and pillow cases that match my color scheme.

I'll be making a set of cafe curtains to cover the lower part of my picture window. All I need now will be a tension rod to fit. Plus, I'll have plenty of that pretty fabric left over to play with.

I don't know. I feel like a kid in a toy store. We learned a few days ago that there'll be a second grandchild born into our family this year and I'm almost getting the shakes trying to figure out what and how many things to make for our new arrivals.

I love making curtains out of bed sheets. It's so much cheaper than buying curtains ready made. I bought lace panels once and tacked them to lavender twin sheets, they were so nice in the guest room/office I had.

Sheets are so pretty and cheap too!

Walmart recently re-introduced a fabric department. Extremely expensive, very little selection. Ackkkkk!

I miss the old fabric departments where they used to have sports teams cotton available.

Just remember Katie H not to work those fingers into pain. It can take the joy out of the making.
