The scrap exchange

Me and a few girls  from the needles and fashion group met up at the scrap exchange in Durham. I bought 2 yds of green polkadot and 2 yds of the stripes and a few more item but these are my jewels. Not even sure what i am going to make but it will be cute!

A day out

Kids and were running the streets in the cold. Went to value village and got a bag of fabric for 1.75 i got some good pieces in that bag. Also got two pillow cases and a sheet. Plan to make a scarf with the pillow cases and pants from the sheet.  I have found all kinds of way to style the pants and i have not even made them. Lol.

I finally finished my cape. I used s1775. Really easy pattern. I need those holes on the side to belt it I am not brave enough for button holes. I also re twisted my hair that day I was feeling like Tracie Ellis Ross.

Diy tech gloves

I got the idea from the link above. I went to Walmart and the metallic floss was 6.97. It had 34% metallic. The thread I used was 3.49 same amount of metallic. The glove is so so I was not able to text but my daughter put them on and the glove worked fine. I think I just need to cut my nails down. But not bad for 3.49. Give it a try if you are on the fence.

Trial and error

I put some chunky flat twists in Saturday night took them out this morning. A few pieces in the front are great the rest is puff. I am not good at flat twisting but I will not give up.

Chancellor's ball 2014

I wore my tutu many people said I looked like a princess ballerina and dancer. I had a good time in the photo booth. I spent most of the party eating and taking pictures. Did a little bit of dancing I didn't care for the dj. I made the bow in my head.
