Clocked In

Been busy this past week, and I’m about to get busier.  Tomorrow starts the last week before taxes are due which means our office is about to get swamped with last minute filers.  For those who may not know, the due date for taxes this year is April 18th instead of the 15th, or have I mentioned this before?  Apparently the 15th is Emancipation Day which is a government sanctioned holiday in Washington DC, hence the extra few days to file.  Anyway, I managed to find some time to finish a couple more projects.

I got this clock about a year ago in a goodie bag from a picnic.  I had intended to do something with it, but never got around to it.

Finally did something with it.  First I drafted a quick pattern by tracing the clock face part with notebook paper and tracing around.  I used this to cut the fabric just right.  I glued the fabric on with Mod Podge being careful not to get it on the face.  After it dried, I used a glue gun to add lace around the front and also on the sides.  Finish off with some bows and now I have an adorable little desk clock.  I still can’t decide what to do with it.  Should I keep it, give it away, or sell it?  Any suggestions?

I got this shirt for less than a quarter at a small thrift store.  I loved it for the sunny yellow color.  Problem was that is was too big for me, plus I like to cute things up a bit.

I took care of this shirt sort of the same way as that red t-shirt (see Red?) except that I didn’t chop off the collar or add ribbon.  I did add lace around the collar and along the sleeves on the outside of the hem this time.  While working on this one I notice the washing instructions on the tag.  I think it’s a little odd that a cotton polo shirt needs to be dried laying flat.  I guess it could be worse, it could be dry clean only.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Red shirt
  • Red skirt
  • Hair bows
  • Clock
  • Yellow shirt
  • Headband
  • Bag
  • Big bunny
  • Wristbands
  • Little bunnies
  • Easter dress

Five down, six to go.  The next one might have a little bonus to it.  That is if things go well.
