After months of agony, I finally put away my winter coat and I now welcome spring in all its glory...seasonal allergies included! I don't know if I'm the only one but I feel an urge to be outside in an attempt to get rid of my cadaver tan! As much as I love crafting, I started to feel guilty if I spend more than an hour at my sewing machine. My solution is to keep the "long term" projects for rainy days (we have quite a lot of those in Canada) and work on short & sweet projects when the sun is shinning and birds are singing. The other day, because a girl never has enough storage, I made a little boxy pouch from Tree Bears. There was just one small challenge: the zipper. For your information I don't have a zipper foot, I don't know what it looks like and even if I had one I don't know how to install it! So, with great joy, I present to the world my very first zipper! A piece of cake...or an entire cupcake!
In other news, Marjolijn from Something White gave me a while ago a "I've got a friend in you!" award. Thank you again! Blogging made me realise that friendship can, without hesitation, be developped in front of a computer screen! I would love to give that meaningful award to Erin (Girl with Curlz), Mirka (Oprikka), Ingrid (Words starting with "P" are cute), Camilla (Made by Milla), Diane (Woollie Wanderings) and Stephanie (Craft Lolly).
