So, I have started a pillow monster, but I haven't finished. I had to spend a lot of time setting up Alice's new machine which has a computer inside of it and purrs like a kitten. It's very nice and can sew things with flower stitches and leaves and zig-zagging thingies. It's almost too smooth though. I can feel the fabric more with my trusty Singer, if that makes sense. And, with "Big Fancy" all the options are a bit overwhelming! But, maybe in my old age I am just getting scared of change.
I had a great day in Chicago with Alice! We just ate some very delicious Italian food and now I feel so sleepy. Have a great weekend everyone!
My name is Nichol and I like to make things with my hands. I draw little creatures with tiny pens in tiny sketchbooks while I drink my coffee or watch my son play with trains. Then, late at night, like a little elf (of the shoe cobbling variety), I bring these little creatures to life. I love to make them. I sew them carefully, with love and patience. I use a large variety of textures to encourage hugs and snuggling. Making these fellows (and ladies) add so much joy and whimsy to my days. It is wonderful to have my humble creative pursuits appreciated and I hope that when you bring a Pink Cheeked friend into your life that they sit on your couch and fill you with joy and wonder.
