Today was such a great day! I got much accomplished (thanks to my sweet babe taking 2 very long naps). I started the day by getting some of my Bible studying completed and followed it up by some sweet, sweet time spent with Makayla. I adore seeing her discover new things, It is such a joy!!! When she went down for her 1st. nap I got some much needed cleaning complete on our back patio as well as getting some new veggies planted in the garden. When M went down for her 2nd. nap I thought I would attempt my Yudu machine (again). Speaking of which, I don't think I have ever mentioned that I invested/splurged in a Yudu machine. The possibilities are endless with this machine but man oh man, I have had A LOT of problems with it! The key to the machine is applying the emulsion correctly and I just haven't gotten the knack for it. Do any of you have a Yudu? If so, any helpful hints for me? When I have had luck in getting my screen burned correctly, I have made some fabulous projects with it (will share soon). Anyhoo, I attempted to Yudu again and to no avail was not able to complete the project I had in mind, BUT I was able to FINALLY complete this:
I have been wanting to make a burlap runner for our kitchen table for a L-O-N-G while but have not gotten around to it. I am so happy with the way it turned out, and boy was it a simple project. I love when such a simple project really adds that something a room/area needs. I adore burlap...I'm using it on everything these days :). Since I already had the M stencil cut out I decided to make a pillow for the bench on our front porch...
