It is almost noon on Thursday and I honestly can't believe it. This week has been a series of days where unplanned things happened right along with the scheduled. It is the first day that I haven't had to go somewhere I really didn't want to go, and was able to sit down at my sewing machine in the morning. By afternoon I will still sit down there, but I am not as perky or as eager as I am in the morning. So I did finish up my third Christmas runner this morning, though I had to make a quick trip to JoAnne's before I could. I thought I had the fabric left over to make the binding, but I did not. I did pick up some darling car fabric and pattern to make Sam a quick pair of jammies out of it, and that was kind of fun too. I also bought myself an inexpensive pair of quilting gloves which I just know are really going to help me. I used a pair of rubber gloves (which were better than nothing at all!) on the ones I have done so far, but these are going to be much better I am sure. So here is the next runner...(I am sure you are all holding your breath ~ and might even think, "does that lady do ANYTHING besides sew?" haha And the answer would be, "not much anymore." WINK)
|YOU CAN KIND OF SEE STITCHES BETTER THIS WAY. MY FREE MOTION ONES NEED A LOT OF WORK, HAHA BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN MY FIRST ONES!|
|IF YOU LOOK REALLY CLOSE YOU CAN THE DECORATIVE STITCH IN THE BINDING I USED. I PERSONALLY LOVED IT AND WILL PROBABLY USE IT A LOT IN THE FUTURE....I THINK MELODY IS CALLING THIS ONE! LOL|
One last thing. I want to wish a VERY HAPPY birthday to my wonderful DIL Larissa! Honestly, there just can't be a better DIL anywhere, as I have the two best there are! Larissa is giving, funny, supportive, and a godly example to those around her. She is one of the best mommies I know, and my son is truly blessed to have found her. How glad I am to have her a part of our lives! James took the day off today so that Larissa can get some much needed time WITHOUT all 4 of her kids, haha. A long lunch and maybe even a movie are on her agenda. I thought about joining her and her mother, but decided I didn't know how I might be feeling, and it is a LONG drive down and back. I will see her Sunday.
