When it comes to sewing lately I feel like all I get accomplished are "odds and ends" and that is what happened today in the sewing room.
I was going through my pile of quilt tops "to be quilted" and realized the backing for my charity quilt ....
wasn't big enough to go on a longarm, so I cut it in half and added three rows of fabric similar to the front of the quilt.
Then before putting the fabric away, I made the binding.
Then while I was digging around, I found this little needle punch that I had made several years ago (I am ashamed to admit that!) and thought, I am not going through another Fall/Halloween without having this put together in the frame that I already had and get it displayed. What was I waiting for? It took no time at all to put it all together.
Oh, and by the way, the little witch sitting there on the table that I painted numerous years ago.....she is holding a little bouquet of flowers. I just love her, but my little, 3-year-old grandson looked at her a little differently. He quietly asked his mom "why is that witch showing her "private parts"? Good grief....he is looking at her hands thinking it is cleavage. LOL.... I will never be able to look at her in the same way. You know.....kids say the darnedest things!
So, now I am sitting make some yo-yos to adorn one of the two quilt labels that I made this afternoon, too.
So, hopefully tomorrow I will be spending a good part of the day in the sewing room again and the first thing I will be doing is applying these little numbers in a floral type arrangement around one of my quilt labels.
That's it for me today. Not much, but it's something. I guess a little progress is better than nothing.
