On the one hand…

I finished it!!!
Here it is, early into the hand sewing part.  Notice how close together the stitches are.
Much further apart at the end…

This is the very last bit of hand stitching that I did on it.

Back side

I thought that adding the pocket and belt loop would look really cool as part of the binding but was a huge pain to hand sew.  Live and learn.

Done and done.  One the other hand, it’s time to move on to…
Cleaning the craft space.  I didn’t take a before shot.  This is in the middle of the process.
Seven full bins…that are visible…
Here’s what I’m throwing away.
On the other other hand…Let’s not talk about this tucked away corner from my mosaic days.
…or this one….

PS – I know it looks like I found the camera but actually I didn’t.  We had purchased a warranty on the first camera.  You know, those things you pay for, never use and kick yourself for the whole time.  We had a month of the three years left on it when Matt remembered it and so got the camera repaired just in time.

Train Wreck

I am having some trouble posting here. 

My camera is missing.  I know it’s somewhere in our house. 

I also haven’t finished anything to take pictures of (If I had anything to take picture with) because we are busy prepping our house to put it on the market.  We are hoping to change neighborhoods.

I could post pictures of the basement wall I painted or the empty spots where the furniture I’ve given away was but they aren’t interesting. 

Plus- again- I have no camera. 

This has slowed down the Etsy shop, too.

I haven’t given up, though.  I will be back to posting once the camera resurfaces.  It’s bound to with all this crazy decluttering.  In the meantime, please enjoy this train wreck from the ’70s:
