I have been busy with other, non-crafty pursuits but I have been sewing recently. I have made several pillow covers that I will post photos of as soon as I get batteries for the camera. I was also going to make Halloween costumes this year but the weather has been really cold and it isn't very fall-like outside. It is more like winter, so I am not going to make them this year. Maybe for next year.

I borrowed my mom's heavy-duty sewing machine and will be finishing the slipcovers for the couch and chair. I finally had to take off the ugly sheets that were covering both pieces of furniture. I just could not stand it anymore.

As part of the non-crafty pursuits I have been doing, I have been learning about crafts, of all things, specifically creating stained glass and weaving. I did some weaving in college and made a loom but my dad chopped it up and used the wood. The stained glass is not as difficult as it looks and I took a glass cutting class last year. I would like to make a stained glass panel for the window at the bottom of my stairs. It looks like it will be a long winter, so I will have plenty of time for this I am sure.

I am going to try and arrange my schedule so I have time to do crafty stuff and of course will post.
