On the bright side, after a few years or contemplation I finally bought a sewing machine. Last time I used one of these to do something other than a basic trim was when I was 9, so you can say I'm a bit rusty. I justified the purchase as an investment for making window treatments in the new house, but I'm also really excited about finally having a sewing machine handy for cards and scrapbooking. I plan on giving it a spin this weekend and posting something next time. Speaking of sewing, anyone have suggestions for good sewing websites and references?
In the mean time, here's a project I made a year ago but that I had a lot of fun doing - a chipbord album for my newphew's Cowboy themed birthday party for his 5th birthday. He just turned 6 this Saturday, so it feels appropriate.
The album is by Basic Grey that I got from my sweet DSS sis last year and the papers are from the Stampin'Up Outlaw collection.
