2 Sketches 4 You Laura #46 + How to make the sweater flower
I don't know about all of you, but I'm ready for some WARM weather! Maybe that is the reason when I saw Laura's sketch, all I could see was a surf board. I saw someone else make that same comment. I grew up in southern Calif. only seven blocks from the beach and I'm longing for that beach weather again. At least I can look at this card and think warm thoughts. haha!! Hopefully all of you are staying warm and getting a bit of sunshine today. At any rate, I can always keep some sunshine in my heart, right?! Some of you asked on my last post how I made the sweater flower. It is the easiest thing ever. You just cut off about 3/4 to one inch of the bottom of the sleeve and then make a basting stitch around one of the edges and pull your threads tight to gather. Make a few stitches in the back to hold it together. Then add a brad or a button or another flower or whatever to the center. You can make a TON of these flowers from one sweater. Just keep going up the sleeve and cutting off more one inch pieces. So easy!
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
