worry wart

I haven't updated in a few days! It may have to do with me being in a bum mood. I'm graduating in a month and that makes me so excited. I think about it some more and think about the student loans I will have to start paying. The excitement turns to panic. Thinking about it makes me want to go straight to my sewing space and get to work, but I'm out of town visiting my family.
I have been listing more things to the shop regularly. I've added a new owl snuggly

a few felt birds

and some jewelry!

This week I plan to work on yeti ornaments and putting more owl snugglies in the shop. Any tummy (fabric) suggestions for the snugglies?
When you're worrisome and stressed, what's your stress reliever?
I have many, but a simple non-fattening one is a step back and taking a deep breathe.


  1. That owl snuggly is adorable!

    Stress reliever? I find a nice long walk in the park with my dog does wonders :)

  2. What about .... hhhmmm.... I can't think of any tummy fabrics... maybe argyle? ruffles?? how cute would tuxedo ruffles be?

  3. When I'm stressed, I like to take hot showers or baths. It helps me clear my head and relax.

    Repaying loans isn't particularly fun, but I want to recommend consolidating them so you can get a better interest rate. Also, you'll have a few months to get in a better financial state before you'll have to start paying. My car payment is a much worse bill, in my opinion.

  4. stress

    A tough yoga, not that soft stretching stuff. To get the body and mind to truly relax, you have to work it hard first. :)

  5. I love your birdies!

    How about some flowers, stars or mini hearts fabric for the owl tummy?

  6. You should try some Amy Butler fabrics for the tummies. And for a stress reliever I like to go jogging. I always feel so much better after. You may feel bad while doing it but you'll feel great and sleep a lot better.

  7. Stress reliever... listening to O-o-h Child by Dee dee Sharp..

    It's pretty inspirational..
    Always makes me believe in myself a wee bit more..

    It's kinda like a soft hug threw good tunes!


    Oh and I really like Brook's Idea of the ruffles!
    Super cute

  8. This stuff works for me when I get wound up before a plane flight or work gets to me. I dunno how or why but it seems to chill me out.

  9. Love the little owl! He's adorable.

  10. Oh i agree, a tux owl would be so cute! If i ever get our bills right & my ticket paid i was gonna buy an owl to hang in my car.

    As for the stress relief, I LOVE rocher ferrero chocolates. But i jog to keep my mind off them :P

  11. Congratulations about graduating so soon! :O)
    To relieve my stress, I clean. I don't know why, maybe it's just a compulsive thing I have.. but I start deep cleaning everything. Haha!
    And I love drinking tea or hot chocolate to calm my nerves.. my favorite tea is Celestial Seasonings' Mandarin Green Tea. Yum!

  12. What an adorable owl!

    BTW I just wanted to let you know that I gave you an award on my blog, so check it out when you get a chance!

  13. Owl snuggly, super cute and super cute name. hmmmm....stress reliever, a good run.

  14. all of my good stress relievers have been mentioned...but I'll second the hot shower, hot tea, and excercise (pilates is my fav)as great no-fat stress relievers!
    I also LOVE the tuxedo ruffles. I have a super cute red with silver pinstripes shirt with little tuxedo ruffles that I can't wear bc I burned a hole in it with the iron...if you want the ruffles, I would be happy to send them to you :o) Just let me know.
    I hope this new week helps you feel a little better!

  15. Fun new stuff!
    I know the feeling of "PANIC" when you're done with school! Just trust that you're exactly where you need to be at the moment and the rest will fall into place. :)
