Coral and Blue Hydrangea

A quiet, rainy laundry day.  I don't have a whole lot of time for crafting today, but I wanted at least to get a small start on my next project.


I was thrilled to discover that I have enough of my coral silk left to make a Sorbetto!  Yes, I'm a copy-cat! Do you think it will make me look as gorgeous as Sarai?  I hope so!

I think I'm one of very few people who really enjoy making bias tape.  That little gizmo is just so much fun!  And then I wrap it on an empty toilet paper roll, because I'm classy.

Last night, I did up my nails in my favorite light blue:  Blue Hydrangea by Nubar.  It has a lovely subtle sheen on its own, but I decided to top it off with some Essie As Gold as it Gets.  I really love the effect:


And it looks nice with my bias tape too!

  3. I ♥ making bias tape. Though I have not used TP roll but rather empty ribbon spools.
    Your nails today will look great with your coral silk.

    1. I'm not classy enough to have empty ribbon spools!

  4. That's a genius use for a tp roll! And that looks way better than mine - is it's still flat?

    2. Sorry - badly worded. I mean, have you folded the ends over (I cant tell if that's the full size of the strip or half the size with 2 edges folded towards the centre. Does that make sense?

    3. Aha! Yes, it's been folded already in these pictures.

  5. I love that nail combo. I am absolutely convinced that As Gold As It Gets looks good on everything.
