My Weekend

How I spent my weekend, by Terri! Tee hee. Remember those days in the early years of school when you would either get up in front of the class and tell the others how you spent your summer or you would have to write it all down on a piece of paper? The good ole days huh?

Anyway, last week I helped out at my local sewing machine store. They teach summer classes to kids and needed an extra hand. The class this time around was pajama bottoms. I am not, no way no how, a clothing sewer! But I have to tell you, I was having so much fun watching all these pairs of pajama bottoms come to life while helping teach that I just had to make myself a pair.


On Saturday, I got together with Amy, Jenny and Sandy and we spent a couple of hours making stamps. I got a couple done while we were together, but was still in the mood to make more. So in all, I got five new stamps made. For an idea on how big these are...the stamp in the top right is 4" x 6".

  10. Wow, you're a master carver! I also have the carving bug, but so far I've only done small ones. I just bought 3 large slabs. Did you transfer you designs before carving.
