The new year is also bringing a new apartment. It’s not far, just across the parking lot, and is a three bedroom. Which means that while I’m learning the new job I will be packing too! Blessings abound! I completed a gift for my daughter and one of her friends’ mother saw it and has commissioned me to make her daughter one too. Being able to earn more money is also a blessing.
I’ll be needing the extra space for my step-mom and also to still have an office, crafting room and the new one has a sun room which I am in dire need of for my plants since the complex doesn’t seem to have patios and its facing the right direction for hours of sun. I did the reservation papers on Monday, I was so relieved. Being a little on the OCD side, I need to have solid plans, not the iffy kind. Now I can get to packing in earnest 😀
One the last day of 2013 and the first day of 2014 I made these;
While I was in Tn in November, I saw the sugar skull material in the local Walmart. My daughter is a serious collector of sugar skulls. I was unable to make them before she left to go back to Florida. So as soon as I’d finished my other commitments, knitting, I started on these. I’d never made a wallet before and this one was so easy. I am very pleased with the way both of them turned out. My daughter was too, which is more important. The only thing the wallet is missing is a change purse….figurin……I did see a tutorial for a zipper compartment, gotta find it for the one I’ll make for me 😉

Well since the morrow brings work, I’ll be finishing up my Veggie Chili, my creation, and a bit of house keeping, then making lunch for work. I have to go over some notes to be properly prepared.
