I HAVE ENOUGH TO DO!!!

So when I was at my mothers she gave me this screen....can any of you take a quess on what she wants me to do with it?
I told her I have enough projects and that she had just told me how people give her things to do and she has enough to do and now she is pawning off on me one of her projects..... Mom...."I HAVE ENOUGH TO DO".....but seeing how she birth me.......gave me breath.....

And she gave me this awesome pot...you all know how I love things with a lid.... Actually, this has been promised to me way before I went to Samoa....and now it has a place in my home.... I LOOOOVVVEEE IT>>>>>Thanks Mom!!



Actually, I took a look at the directions for this screening and I am excited to do this project. I got this on my way to Texas, not knowing that I was going back to my mothers' on the way home.....so....I had a chance to sit and read...and if I had a sewing machine that I could crank....I would have been in the back seat sewing away....now I am home and soooo excited to work on this project and many others....as long as I can keep my mind and hands in one directions instead of gandering about doing other things....

That is a cool pot all right. Are you making a tote with the screen?

LynCC said...

Yes, that's a terrific pot! But I'm clueless - what do you do with the screening? :)

JustCindy said...

Are you going to make a bag with the screening? Oh my the pot is beautiful!

kpaints said...

you know 'what's one more thing' I find that my 'one mores' usually either add a skill I use again or give inspiration for a future TO DO or just plain ol turn out to be fun-- hope you enjoy the project as much as mom did giving birth! cw

Embroidery would be my guess.....and it is a lot of fun to do.....

Wow, that's a wonderful pot. I love it and I'm sure it was worth waiting for. I've used screen for a variety of projects. My beach bag pattern uses it but it also makes great zipper bags. Can't wait to see what you're going to do with it.

Love the pot! I've seen many wonderful projects made from screening. I love the shell collecting and bug bags. Great for the kids.

Lynn said...

Awesome pot! Is it pottery or wood? It has such a lovely shape.

I bet you are going to do some machine embroidery work on it. It's fun to do. Anxious to see your creative talent come to life for your MOM.

Glitches on blogger have been resolved for me and can finally leave comments again...sheesh!

LOVE the pot too!! Hmmm, screen? I will have to wait!

Gene Black said...

I am thinking that the screen would make great shopping bags. But not knowing the texture or weight of it, it is hard to tell.
I could see some embroidery on it also....maybe done with yarn or perle cotton. -but then you said "sewing machine" hmmmm.
Oh the possibilities. How about a very lightweight jacket for summer wear. Stylish and keeps the flies off of you. LOL.

The red pot is a hit!

The only thing I can think of is zippered bags. I'm looking forward to the big reveal!

Sometimes you just gotta do what your mum asks you too. I love the pot. Thanks for always stopping by my blog.

I have had fun making things with screening material, but never have I seen such a beautiful red screening material. Can't wait to see what you create with it. I'm sure it will be wonderful.

And your pot is amazing. What a beautiful pot. Great family treasure. Very special.

I bet you're making a bag. I have some screen material in a lime green and I've been wanting to make a bag too. I look forward to seeing what you create, I've seen some adorable bags made up with screen and fabrics.
