Canada Day Project 2019 #2

Here is my other Canada Day project for this year. I decided I wanted to paint a sort of Canada Flag on a hand saw. I was going to go out and buy a new one for the project but Chris told me he had an old one that he couldn’t use… apparently he tried to cut something he shouldn’t have lol!

Canada Day Project 2019 #1

Here is the first of my 2 Canada day projects for this year. Today I had the opportunity to spend pretty much the whole day at my sewing machine which was awesome. Not only did I get a good start on a couple of projects but the basement is SO much cooler when the weather gets hot lol!

This is a T-shirt that I made for Chris. He is big into “Canadiana,” and skulls so this seemed like the perfect project to make for him and for me to play!

I found the pattern on Etsy. They have a great selection of machine embroidery patterns. I could literally spend the whole day just looking at them and adding them to my favourites!

This one I found here – https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/701696834/canadian-flag-skull-machine-embroidery?ref=yr_purchases – at a store called KHCraftsStudio.

I didn’t have any of the burgundy thread colour called for in the pattern so I ended up substituting a reddish brown colour. Not too bad I don’t think. I will say though that any mistakes are all me lol, not the pattern. (I ran out of bobbin thread once and had a tension issue another time 😦 )

Recycled Cans Crafts – Part #1

I think this is going to be a crazy week!  There are so many things I need and want to get done before Friday!  I have 2 Dr’s appointments scheduled for Friday too… what was I thinking?  A house full of company on Saturday and I will be gone all day Friday! Help lol!

This week I have finally managed to accumulate enough tin cans from my recycling to do a few crafts!  I can’t believe how long it took to get enough.  Today I started base painting them all.  Have I ever mentioned how much I hate waiting for paint to dry?
