purple puffs.

I made the assumption that I would be catching up on my sewing, crafting, and creativity after summer school was done; however, my energy has been totally zapped because of 1. I returned back to work and even worst, 2. the air-conditioning is not working!!!!!!!! ARGH. I have been trying to avoid my house, which means I end up avoiding my craftroom, which means I don't get to make anything fun.

Well, I was desperate...so, I lugged my sewing machine into the kitchen the other day, and blasted the fan in my direction, in order to make four little purple puffs. There's a fifth one, but I didn't want to rethread the bobbin, because it was so stinkin' hot.

This weekend, my husband and I plan to get someone to fix the air-conditioning, but then I start school on Monday...so...I don't know if I'll ever finish the fifth one. :)




By the way, I did tell my professor that I made the adventure bear (embarrassingly enough). See, I had this terrible thought, quite suddenly after I gave it to him, that perchance, maybe, could it be that I didn't remove all the sewing pins!?! It really plagued me. What if one was still stick in the bear and he tried to hug it and got a horrible surprise??? I would so get an F! So, I e-mailed him explaining the situation like the stupid goon I am. He was really nice about it though.

This is #1 of my Seven Shames. The other six will come later (I have to sort through a VERY long list to pick out the best ones). I was tagged by The Happy Hippie , who put a spin on the Seven Random Facts tag game. I like her rendition of it. :)

so sweet those purple puffs. i like your # 1 of your Shames That would be so like me to worry about something like that. My Mom though is the # 1 worrier and the # 1 question asker.
hope you get your AC fixed soon. I think crafting in the summer is much harder then the other seasons. I can't wait for Fall.

I love these purple puffs! And I'm glad you told your professor you made the bear for him, and of course, we don't want anyone getting poked with pins!

Good luck with the AC!
