Whoops! So sorry that I didn't let you know yesterday where I got that cute train fabric. Thanks justJENN for asking about it! I shall give you one guess where I got it from -- and it starts with a super and ends with a buzzy.) I love that shop! And thanks for noticing the regular posting around here melissa -- its almost as if I were a blogger. Who knew?
How about more train stuff? I had no idea that there were so many trains lurking around my studio.
And a little bit more progress on the project today. Thanks for your support yesterday when I was all grumble, grumble, whine. I get like that sometimes. Anyone else know what I'm talking about? Yeah, I thought so. I like choosing the fabrics, but for some reason after I cut them out I stop liking them until they're all sewn up. I'm the same way with other sewing projects. I have to push myself through the, "Gosh, this just looks flat and I have so much work ahead of me," phase. So, back to the project... all of the sewing is done by hand on these so they take forever to complete. The one thing that I do like about the long process is that it gives me time to imagine and re-imagine each piece.
Don't they look so completely different once the little body is assembled?
