while mike is gone in germany and london for the next week, without me.. i have been doing lots of crafts. and making thousands of pom poms .. i made a few garlands and am working on a wreath. by the time he gets back our house will probably be filled. but thats just what happens when you get left alone to make things all day for ten days. and it's very easy to go pom pom crazy,especially because they're so easy to make .
well, i'm back from visiting my family in minnesota.. i had all these plans to do crafty things and sew the whole time, but i ended up mostly just reading instead. and i think i needed the rest from being out on tour,it felt very good. but i did get a few sewing patterns from my mom so i can keep learning after we get home at the end of the month.
today we're in mississippi on a day off, so i got out my crochet and made some little hair bows that i've been meaning to try for awhile.
this skirt was my first sewing project. i had a few troubles with my sewing machine, but it turned out, and now i am very much looking forward to sewing more when we get back to georgia. we left for a two month tour on friday, so that won't be for a while.. but i brought some crochet and cross stitch to keep busy, and i'll be visiting my family in minnesota for a few weeks in september. my mom is a great seamstress so i'm excited to get some help from her.
