Salsa Saturday, Sewing Sunday
I hit the farmers' market for tomaters because I had a wicked craving for some Jersey tomato salsa.
I spread an afghan on the kitchen floor (this place might have squirrels in the leaky ceiling and mold, but the kitchen is huge) and my two helpers observed the operation.
I tried to tell Moochie that you eat the salsa, not the jar box.
I got a decent yield--6.5 pints.
Today, I hauled out The Beast.
First, and there are no pictures of this, I mended my underwear. Yes, one might say this is the pinnacle of cheapassedness. However, it's more that I'm lazy. I cannot freaking STAND underwear shopping.
I went granny-panty shopping a few weeks before I had Moochie in anticipation of recovery (it all has to do with waistbands and incisions) and my head nearly exploded. So many cuts/styles, so many colors, so many sizes, so many prices--UGH!
I figured sewing up the ones I love and wear now would prolong me from having to repeat the experience.
But on to the good stuff!
Yeah, yeah, so I can't really sew a straight line...
I saw a link for this on Christina's blog and one that she had made.
It's a fidget square or Baby Crinkle Square.
Basically you sew a square with a piece of plastic, in my case some old plastic tissue/wrapping paper I had saved from who knows where, between two pieces of fabric and you put little ribbon tabs around it.
Simple and easy. And seeing as Mooch loves the crinkle and is a big tag/ribbon sucker I knew I had to make one.
I think he likes it.
