A New Strap

I finally got my iron and am able to do some sewing. Unfortunately, I have had a bit of a creative block and couldn't think of anything to start. Blah. I finally decided to make a simple camera strap. It was a quick project and I think it has kick started my creative juices again. I really like the bright colors of this strap. Perfect for the beautiful weather.

Help Please

I'm still waiting on my iron, so no sewing being done here. But I did manage to get my husband to sand down an old desk for me. Not the hard part, what color to paint it? I am open to all suggestions. I would like something bright and cheerful, so NO black or brown.

Here's a pic of the desk in question (only top sanded at this point):

Initially I was thinking turquoise, as I really need to get it out of my system. However, this will be the desk my husband will be working at, in the kitchen. SO, I want color, but nothing my husband will be unhappy with. Please help!

A Whole MONTH?!?

I cannot believe I didn't post anything the entire month of February! What's even worse is that I barely touched my sewing machine the entire month either. So sad! I plan to rectify this as soon as possible. Unfortunately, my iron bit the dust and I can't sew without one. I ordered a new one today, from Amazon. I could have just gone to Walmart, but I really wanted a good quality iron. Luckily I had earned enough gift cards through Swagbucks, that I only spent what I would have on one from Walmart. I'm finally going to get a big girl iron. The Rowenta DW8080 Pro Master Iron.

I am very excited! I can't wait to get my hands on it! (I will have to wait until next week or later. I saved a few bucks and went with Free 5-8 day shipping.)

Hopefully I will have some new projects going very soon.
