My jeans were threadbare at the rivets so I threw them into a pile and bought new ones. I bought the butterfly appliques and managed not to lose them while I did Christmas stuff. Today I really couldn't think of much else to do in preparation for Christmas, so I mended a couple of pairs of jeans. They are the iron-on kind, but I just ironed them on to stick them in place while I sewed them on. Mending isn't a lot of fun, but the appliques help:)
I also base-coated more small gourds and small wooden ornaments...the flat kind like I get at Hobby Lobby. I decided to base-coat back and front and put crackle finish on, then a white layer of acrylic. I intend to eventually paint little scenes on them.
