I’ve been a little preoccupied this week, hence a slight lack of posts. I’ve had several job interviews this week, yay! Hopefully something good will result.
Anyway, I stopped by a 99 Cents Only Store yesterday to pick up a few things just for the heck of it. As I have mentioned before, all my sewing supplies are stuck in storage for who knows how long. I have been dying to make something, anything. Every time I saw any sort of craft supplies in stores I got this urge to buy. Even those flimsy little sewing kits with the dinky little pairs of scissors that barely cut anything. I usually stopped myself since I already have tons of needles and threads and ribbon, even if I don’t really have access to them. Seemed like such a waste to buy something I already have.
So basically I finally broke down and bought some basics. Needles, safety pins, and some thread. Now I can at least do some hand sewing and mending. I also got some socks, tights, hair accessories and jewelry. I’m especially excited about the jewelry. I got a set of 3 pairs of faux-pearl earrings, a cameo necklace and matching earrings. I kind of think cameos look strange on earrings, especially dangling ones. However, as soon as I pry of the hooks, they will make great charms for bracelets or necklaces. And the huge one on the necklace will probably work better as a brooch. Then I use the chain for other purposes. Plenty of things to make already. However, the cameos will have to wait. I have another special project to start working on, but I will explain that one at another time.
