Well, it's not done yet! Seven atc's seemed to manage to get made out of it too.
Do you suppose there might be anything else?
I haven't talked about books here for quite awhile, but I've just finished reading two that I thought were worth sharing. Most of you will remember having seen the famous photograph taken during the Vietnam war of the little naked girl running in the road after having been horribly burned by a napalm bomb. Kim Phuc was that little girl and she has written the story of her life in a book called 'Fire Road'. My friend and I went to hear her speak just before Christmas and she has had an incredible life. She's an amazing speaker and her book is one I highly recommend that you read. ('Fire Road - A Memoir of Hope' by Kim Phuc Phan Thi, ISBN 978-1-4964-2429-7, c 2017).
The other book is fiction, but written in a very factual way. It's the story of Alice who, at 50, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Her story of her gradual descent into the disease is at times hard to read (probably, in my case, because both my mother, my mother-in-law, and a sister-in-law had the disease, and currently one of our friends is dealing with it) but gives you a good insight into the gradual decline that the disease causes. ('Still Alice' by Lisa Genova ISBN 978-1-5011-064-2, c2009).
- For some eye candy featuring etui's, have a look HERE.
- if you would like to make your own etui, HERE is a tutorial for one. And another is HERE (scroll down to see all the steps).
- I don't normally share a picture without knowing the source (and if you know who made this, please let me know so I can give proper credit) but I wanted to share it anyway. Have a look at THIS etui - I love the pincushion!!
- If you have an over-abundance of fabric scraps (not that ANY of us do!!!!), perhaps there might be an idea for you in THIS lineup of projects.
