Living in Spring and Summer is wonderful. I've been trying to steal away here and there to improve some skills and tackle home projects. The backpack is from a pattern from Made by Rae. I made the same one a few years ago, but I am happy to say, this one is much sturdier.
I took about 6 weeks to just work on my sewing skills and found it was nice to allot a chunk of time to just focusing on one area I wanted to improve in- almost like a mini course- enough time to see improvements, but not indefinite so as to plateau. Next I'm working back on my drawing and painting and in the works is a new line of things to reopen my shop online.
I painted over this doll house I found last Summer at a garage sale- the seller's father made it and it is quite simple and beautiful- just needed some sprucing up.
