I worked on the floor again this weekend. I thought finding the motivation to craft was hard, convincing myself to work on the floor in this heat and humidity was even harder! But I did it. It took me all of Saturday to finish the last major section of floor. I just have to go back now and put the edge pieces in.
And, no, I didn’t glue myself to anything this time.
The molding promises to be fun because I threw away the old molding! I’m usually a little more thrifty but the old molding was so thin that it split and broke as I was removing it. Good molding doesn’t do that.
I could barely move when I woke up Sunday morning. But my muse was back at least temporarily so I made a bag while I had the motivation (and it is a motivation problem usually). I’m not selling this bag either… muahaha! MC is going to have a fit if I keep making bags for myself!
The asian floral fabric is yet more fabric from the defunct fabric shop. I have not only been planning this bag since last November, I even had that fabric cut already! All I had to do was cut the green fabric, the handles, and the interfacing. Okay, that is actually a lot of work. The one part of bag making that I really despise is making the handles… usually I pad them but I was too lazy today.
And does anyone else have problems with their rotary cutters getting dull quickly?
Answer to a question about how I organized the bookshelves. I don’t really have much of a system. I try to keep smaller books higher and taller books lower but I don’t kill myself to make it perfect. I also keep books separated by major genre categories… fiction, childcare, my biology collection, etc.
