one of nick's nicknames for me is Veruka. yes, the girl from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fame. heh. the one that wants everything and wants it NOW. that's me. if you know me, it really is a fitting nickname. gotta hand it to that clever hubby of mine.
so when it comes to a project, like sewing, i'm really into it at the start, and then my interest wanes. and then i get frustrated and just want it to be finished. now.
this traight does not run in my family. my sister has the patience of a saint when it comes to many things, especially sewing. so when she's in town, i take advantage of it. she's incredibly talented, especially when it comes to sewing. like i said, i gotta take advantage of it when i have her here!
before christmas i decided i wanted to make a purse. we went to joann's picked out the fabric and tackled the project the day after christmas. no pattern, i just had an idea of what i had in mind.
we made this fun purse together. i love it! it was stressful (ever wonder why the word STRESS is part of the word seamstress?!), but we had a fun time doing it. ok, i did the easy parts, and she did the hard parts. did i mention that the majority of it was the hard part? heh. the inside is even lined with a coordinating stripe and has a little orange felt pocket to match the orange felt bird on the front.
after this project, we'll see if she's inclined to 'help' me with another sewing endeavor next time she's in town..... ;)
