Have you ever purchased something that just called to you and you knew you would never use it, but just had to have it? That "just because" crafter's purchase. Well, that is exactly what happened to me two weeks ago. After looking throughout the store, and proceeding to the exit empty handed, I turned to see a table filled with many red boxes. Hmmmmmm, very festive set up, so I went to take a looksie.
Ahhhhhh.....how pretty. So many to choose from. I know what they are for, but am I going to use them? Hmmmmmm, yup, it's happened before, not buying something and later hoping I had. What was I to do? Well, of course, I purchased 2 sets of two designs that I loved and an extra of one that truly called to me, even though, that one I really really knew I would probably not have use for, but it was soooooo pretty. I couldn't leave it behind, so it came home with me as an "orphan".
So there I am eyeballing all of the measurements sans tools and decide to start cutting the stitched fabric. OUCH, OWIE... the first snip hurts the deepest. All I could think of was to breathe deeply, in and out. Many snips and an almost nervous breakdown later, the item is finished!
In a few days, I will send the item to its new home.
