|Tinkerbell Costume - almost done!|
And of course, this little costume would have been one-heck-of-a-bunch cheaper at Costco. But at least I can say it is Mama Made.
Now on to the spider....
And, if you're saying to yourself, "yes, if this blog is called Quilting Barbie, why the hell doesn't she quilt anymore?" you'd be asking the same question I've been asking for the last month. The truth is that we have our house on the market again. Hubby got a great job transfer to a town about an hour and a half south of here. He loves his job, I hate having to get the house ready for showings. Most of my sewing stuff is in the crawlspace, and the rest in jammed into a wardrobe in the sewing room. The lights are put away because they don't look pretty. The real estate agent says, "less is more." He clearly doesn't understand my fabric addiction.
I'm dreaming of quilting projects....Sometimes when I can't sleep I think about what I'm going to make next. Nevermind all the UFO's jammed into the damn crawlspace. Oops, I just said damn...is that okay? Sometimes I talk like the logger truck driver's daughter that I am. My mother would be disgusted. She is not a logging truck driver's daughter. But she married one....
I promise I will quilt again. And have photos to show. And I might even join a swap agian too (especially if the nice folks at the Pretty Little Pouch Swap would let me join their group...but I'm still waiting...)
If you are still reading this rant, thank you. I appreciate it. Are you sewig Halloween costumes?
