Being crafty….

Denise Schmidt ‘Katie Jump Rope’ Burnt Orange fabric

I have never considered myself to be particularly crafty. Sure I can knock up a meal or cake in a flash but anything else – not so much. I don’t know what possessed me to buy fabric, but I did. And then I decided I would make cushion covers. Now, I am not a good sewer. i have never been a good sewer. I find sewing stressful. My partner commented today he was waiting for the trainwreck of sewing pandamonium to occur. But, it diBeing Craftydn’t happen.

I researched – YouTube. I figured out what I needed to do. And I sewed. Oh, how I sewed. Stress free. And now I have completed two different types of covers and am researching lovely fabrics for the next ones. Heavens knows what I am going to do with all these cushion covers. But, they are gorgeous. And I made them. I am happy.
