ship of dreams

I made this ship this weekend.  I created a wire frame, painted it gold, then hand-stitched vintage lace scraps to the frame.  I took photos along the way so I can show you how to do it, in case you want to make a ship of dreams for yourself, but I’m having trouble getting my camera photos to upload.  I will get it figured out tonight and post them tomorrow.  In the meantime, here’s an instagram photo of the finished product.  At least, I think it’s finished.  I may add more stuff.  It was way more time consuming than I thought it would be!  It sucked away my whole weekend.  I mean, like THE. WHOLE. WEEKEND.  I actually felt guilty about it.  Because I basically ignored my family for two days.  I mean, I still made meals and cleaned but I didn’t snuggle with my kids much or read them stories.  So then I got to beat myself up about that all night last night.  We can’t really have it all, can we?  We have to pick what we can fit in, then feel guilty about what we don’t!   haha…  So today, it’s extra snuggles and stories.  Maybe Winken Blinken and Nod would would  be a good one.

What did you do this weekend?
