I’ve been missing my sewing machine. There has been so much to do around here and catch up on that I haven’t touched it in ages.
I got Hubby’s pants patched but that doesn’t count as sewing…right??
Thankfully it was only one pair.
I had a blog reader say that she was so happy that I had “stopped cleaning and reorganizing”. Remember that kick I was in about Aprilish time. The reader had been trying to keep up with me cleaning as I was cleaning and organizing.
Well I really never got out of the kick. I got side tracked and couldn’t but now I am back at again. I can’t wait to show you all the things I’ve been up to. That’s the main thing that’s been keeping me from sewing but it is oh-so worth it.
Absolutely no string quilting was done. To do that I have to pull out the treadle and I’ve not had a big amount of time to commit to it. So it’s not really worth it to pull it all out if I can’t work on it for a couple hours.
I did get a little quilting related stuff done. I have been working on getting Bricks in the Barnyard sewn together as a top. Well I realized once the top is finished I need to do the border. Well I didn’t have the borders cut out so…I decided to try to cut it out over nap time. My childcare kiddos are now independent enough that I can do something like cut out a quilt while they are napping. AH…I’ve been waiting for the babies to get old enough to sleep all the way through nap time.
I cut and cut as quick as I could over nap time but one little one was up early so she could go potty and then it was close enough to wake up time that I let her stay up with me. She’s the sweetest little girl. She took the piles of cut pieces moving them from here to there. It was precious. She loved it. I was happy to get to spend some one on one time with me.
After her “help” my pieces were a little wrinkled but that’s okay. They are all cut out….one more step closer.
Find me here next week. I’m hoping a little string challenge stuff happens.
