Rainy day patch party


Okay, so I don't own a umbrella, but I make up for it by having not one but two pairs of rain boots. Which to Andy's horror I wear even when it's not snowing or raining, but I love my Chooka boots and they always cheer me up. Any wellies really, have been floating my boat and I find I'm slipping them on more and more lately. It's been such a rainy/windy/dreary week that I needed to have a bit of fun so I had a bit of a patch party and pressed a bunch of fun new and old favorites that will be along shortly for the X-mas season.
I really love the sew a go-go patches and their close cousin the gift tags that are perfect for adorning those handmade gifts with. So now that my studio's floor is littered with scraps of brightly covered felt and paper, and my hand is cramped from all that cutting I'm going to settle in for the night with a nice cuppa cocoa in the worlds best cocoa cup that I found at the thrift for .20 and watch White Heat because someone has me in a James Cagney kinda mood.


Cheers Sunday! Don't let that bastard Monday beat you down.

I need the patches. I need the patches! I'll feel like a total fraud since I can not get my sewing machine to like me, but I love the patches and I need them!
