So this will be another quick and dirty post, one of my little guys is sick again with a tummy bug, so he's been under the weather all day and I expect it will be a long night. And on top of that I have a job interview for a full-time position tomorrow, so I have to study up on some things I did 6 years ago and refresh myself on what I did research on. Hopefully I get offered a position, because as much as I like my job right now, I really don't like having no vacation days, or paid holidays. And with 11 mandatory days off the next two months, that is a lot of unpaid time!
The winner of October's link-up is Lisa Marie!
This month I chose another book by Rashida Coleman-Hale, Zakka Style. It was her follow-up to I [heart] Patchwork book, which I reviewed here. Zakka Style is just as fun as the last book, and Rashida's writing is great, very easy to follow with pictures and/or diagrams along the way to help you if you are in a jam.
From Zakka Style, I chose to make the sewing kit. I have wanted to make a travel sewing kit for my English Paper Piecing project for a while now, and when I found this cute stamped kit, I knew that it would be perfect for EPP.
My stamps were a little dry, mainly because I haven't used them in forever since I started sewing... and being packed away in boxes doesn't help them either. But you can still see what I tried to stamp at least, and maybe when my craft room is completely set up I can make a new pincushion.
