Well, with Joe gone geocaching for the day I had every intent to spend a quiet day being crafty.
I had an idea for more Gocco Christmas cards that I thought would be amazing. Ummm...it sure wasn't. I spent a good chunk of my day yesterday drawing the tree (yes, it took me almost an entire day to draw THAT!) and finally had a tree I liked.
I thought it would be fun to combine stitching fabric and Gocco on the same card, and I'm sure with a different design it would be a great idea, but NOT with this one!!!
I'm embarassed by it. In fact, I can't even believe I'm blogging about it.
Anyways, after a LONG consultation with my very crafty Mother over the phone analyzing the card, she suggested turning it into a gift tag. I completely agreed with her that there was NO other way to save this mess.
So....here's the first version of the tree gift tag.
I do not like the button, it's "out". It still needs something, but it's far far better than the card/fabric version!
So that's the extent of the crafting I got done today, and quite honestly, I don't even want to go back into my sewing room until I get over the tree disaster.
So, what did I do for the rest of the day?? Cooked and baked of course. It's a beautiful fall day, nice and cool and after being sick this week I felt like doing some cooking and baking.
I made chocolate chip pumpkin muffins (with nuts, of course), an apple pie, a quiche and beef enchilladas (not photographed). Joe better be hungry when he gets home from hiking!
The quiche and if you look very carefully, the pie is in the top of the photo. The picture of the pie alone didn't turn out.
I'm off to take some muffins to the neighbour's. I hope you're all having a better weekend than I am crafty-wise!
