But alas, what is a "lazy", slightly squishy, single, graduate student with a newly developed drinking problem (kidding) to do with her time? Well of course the answer is to blog on a blog that has 1 whole follower - thank you Jami! Also to craft like a mad woman!
When I say craft like a mad woman, I of course do not mean angry but rather insane, straight jacket, electric shock therapy, bat shit crazy. Yes... that is what has become of me. My sewing machine should be in it's own movie - similar to "If These Walls Could Talk".... because between the drinking (kidding) and the talking to my fish (not kidding) my sewing machine, which has taken up permanent residence on the dining room table, has seen it all.... oh lord, has the sewing machine seen it all.
When having a stressful day, I find it relaxing to walk through the isles of my local craft store (Hobby Lobby) and peruse the isles of color - which ironically stresses me out when I am having a good day... bet there's a psychologist out there who could have a field day with that.
Needless to say - as a graduate student there are many days where I have found myself aimlessly walking down the isles of my local HobbyLobby, usually in the fabric department pondering what I am doing with my life - which usually leads to various projects including but not limited to: a new dining room set, a new entertainment center, a new duvet painfully cut and sewn by yours truly, a failed jewelry site on Etsy, a failing accessories site on Etsy and as of late - aprons, oh goodness and a lot of them - 6 in the last 4.5 days if we are counting...
Some day I might even put up a tutorial - but for now, I will continue to lull myself back to sanity with the blaring -chug-chug-chug- of my 114$ Brother sewing machine... -chug-chug-chug-
