Thanks so much for your sweet comments about the video and the book! There is a free pattern from the book up on the Martha Stewart crafts site today if you want to check it out, the Mermaiden.
While we were working on the video I was pretty sure it was going to turn out awful. I just thought, let’s rush through it and if it’s a disaster at least we can say we tried. But when
it’s done and all put together and you’ve forgotten about the millions of little adjustments and trying to get things to balance just right, well, you just remember the fun. I’m dying to do another one. Maybe once school starts and I get a little break from the kids’ grabby fingers.
Speaking of which, guess what I just bought today? School supplies! Craziness. Summer is over in a snap. We have a few weeks left and we’re going to stretch that out as much as we can with nothing but pool and beach action but I thought what the heck, I’d do a little Fall preview today.
This little duck is a hand sewing project, made from wool felt. These little jelly jars were made into bushel pincushions.
