I've been obsessed with the rainbow sequence lately. Good ol' ROYGBIV. There's just something about it that evokes happiness, ya know? Over the past few days I've gone a little crazy with the sequence, so hopefully if you're not feeling 'top shelf' at the moment, by the end of this post you'll feel a little bit brighter inside! :)
I mentioned a few posts ago that I was about to begin a beginners sewing course in an attempt to get into pattern making for fun. I have been to two classes so far, and though I am familiar with a lot of the terms, processes, etc., I've been having a great time! One of our first assignments was a bit tedious (sewing straight by eye to form a grid), so I decided to jazz it up a little with thread colour selection!
Okay, so, minus the crooked grid, it turned out great! (In other words, I hope our instructor is marking based on colour selection rather than actual sewing skills...)
Last night I got together with a few wonderful ladies from church while the gents absorbed the sights and sounds of the Superbowl. I had such a great time and came home with this lovely rainbowy gem which is now hanging on our banister:

A few of the ladies had asked if I would help them make the heart garland from my previous post, but since we only had two hours, we decided on making felt heart garland instead! There are a bunch of different tutorials online, but I mainly got the idea from here and here. I love how simple it was to make and how FANTASTIC it looks! I think I may have to make a garland for EVERY special occasion...shamrocks, here I come!
Last rainbows but not least rainbows, I cut out a few more felt hearts with Elliott today in order to make a few V-day cards.

Don't you feel better now?
