Been a long time since I did a week in review post! They seemed to be getting a bit boring and repetitive so they just didn't seem very fun for anyone.
Well this month I'm trying to do the #fmsphotoaday challenge. I've been posting my pictures on Instagram
, and sometimes on Facebook
. I realized they are kind of like mini blog posts for each day, but with a different prompt each day it is a bit more fun than my usual 'I sewed this today'. Here's my first week of photos!
Day 1: Colorful
The first prompt was colorful and what is more colorful than the 80's cat
? These larger cat plush are some of the most colorful Squshies I've ever made. I've love bright colors, so it is kind of strange that I rarely work with anything but natural and neutral colors.
Day 2: Light
I love working on Squshies outside in the sunlight. This year we got a nice patio set so I could have a good outdoor work space. I've been sewing outside a lot the last few weeks, now that it finally isn't super gross hot here in Southern California.
Day 3: Me Today
I hate taking pictures of myself so I took a pictures of Otis, my inner cake troll. Someone made a joke at dinner once about how I have an inner cake troll. So I named him Otis and made him a into Squshie. Also I really wanted cake that day. Not much different from any other day. I always want cake.
Day 4: Motion
Motion pictures count for motion right? After a long day of Squshie making I like to watch a movie, a tv show, or way too many Youtube videos. This past week I've been on a movie watching kick. I'm pretty sure this only makes Beauregard want fame and fortune even more!
I've been super stressed about getting everything I want to get done for DesignerCon finished in time. A couple hours of zoning out before trying to go to sleep really seems to help.
Day 5: Afternoon
On day 5 my afternoon was tiger stripes. Kiki the tiger
takes a long time to make. If I'm making tigers that is pretty much all I'm going to do for the whole day. Her stripes took up the whole afternoon.
Day 6: 8 o' clock
Oops! Missed a day! At 8 o' clock in the morning I was asleep. At 8 o' clock in the evening I was playing a board game with friends. My best friend's cat hasn't been doing very well the last few months so we went to go visit. I actually took a bunch of Squshie with me to work on while we chatted. So even though I wasn't home, I still spent a good chunk of the day sewing.
Day 7: What You Saw Today
I was working on emptying the bucket on the right on day 7 so that was my view all day. The critter I was working on just changed constantly. I was really hoping to finish the bucket that day but I was being ridiculously optimistic. I'm actually going to continue tackling the bucket today and probably still be working on it tomorrow. I really underestimated how much was in there!
Hope you enjoyed this new approach to a weekly update!
