Center of gravity...where are you?
How difficult could it be? I mean, it is just a little mobile! Big mistake! How naive! The mobile swap organized by Elsie Marley is such a lovely idea. However, the last time I saw a mobile was at a baby shower, over a years ago, and I sadly did not take the time to analyze the technical aspects of its construction. Too bad! After I received my swap partner information, I decided to go for something "contemporary" but with a feminine touch. Looking for inspiration, I came across the birds drawing on the last page of Lotta Jansdotter Simple Sewing. It became my pattern. There is just one problem and when I say problem I mean wasting an entire Friday evening trying to figure out where the center of gravity of my damn birds was! This morning, when I woke up, I had a vision that will probably help me solve that problem but I will work on it later because right now, I'm going shopping with my husband. Normally I'm not crazy about shopping, I have this bad relationship with money, but for my birthday (who's approaching too fast!) I can get pretty much anything that I want but it has to be done in a two hours time frame. That's the tradition! Got to go :)
