Jaggie here! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I am so stuffed from all the food I ate yesterday! We spent the morning at Veronica and Kevin's ranch with their daughter and grandson, then went to the grandparent's ranch and celebrated in true Texas form with fajitas! We ate until we all felt like an old lazy ranch dog lounging in the shade of the porch on a hot Texas day ... oh, wait! That's exactly what we did!
Well, before we all reached that point, Veronica and Michelle spent the morning organizing the "Creative Room" at the office and then Veronica's personal sewing room. Going through and organizing fabrics and notions is always motivating for them to get projects and samples finished and of course inspires new things for us to share with our Bear Thread Designs friends!
Michelle is a master organizer, but I think she learned at an early age that if she volunteers to help her mom organize the "craft chaos", then she gets to raid the stash! That's exactly what she did yesterday, working on three different projects, two of which she completed. So as part of our "You did WHAT with the Applique Pressing Sheet!?! series, here is my favorite ...
She made the lil guy an apron so he could help with the 4th of July BBQ. He was more interested putting rocks into the empty planters, but maybe next time!
