New Moos!

Copyright Tattered Edge 2007

Ahhh Sunday! I love Sundays. It's the one day of the week I have the pleasure of sharing breakfast with my husband. Usually he cooks for me but if we decide to have pancakes then I cook. It was blueberry pancakes and bacon this morning! MMM! Sundays are usually pretty low key around here so often I just putter in my workspace.

This morning's puttering was finishing up my original Moo cards for the swap. I needed to make six, so these were the last three.

Here's the whole set. I just need to sign them on the back and then I can put them in the mail. I love working small. I did learn one thing though-sewing machine needles do not like double sided tape. When I sewed the button Moo card, everything was fine. I tried to sew the next one and the needle had become all gummed up with the tape it passed through so the thread ended up getting snagged on the sticky needle. I actually ruined two cards trying to sew them. Lesson learned-in the future, I will either not stick the image onto the card stock and just simply sew it together or I will try using UHU glue stick to glue it and see what happens. (My thought being that the glue stick should dry completely if I give it some time.) I sure have made my share of art "mistakes". Sometimes the things that bungle can be salvaged in some way and sometimes they hit the bin with a resounding thud. Live and learn!

Happy beginning of September everyone! Autumn is on its way!
