well, after a whole week of doing nothing this is what I have managed today:
...I have finished my last item for the mug rug and goodie swap. I really hope my partner likes this, I am certain that the item is ideal, just hope the fabric is to their liking to
I can't believe we get to send them out as of Friday, so excited to see who has been sewing for me!
I havn't really done nothing all week. Wednesday night I didn't get in till about 10 as I was learning how to do some training and the training was in the evening.
Thursday night I finished off my curtains:
There are two of them, but obviously it would have been very dark if I had photo'd both. They are floor length and lined with heavy blackout lining: they were heavy and bulky to sew. This is my £10 bargain fabric from Dunelm. I have been lying in bed looking at the fabric and appreciating the curtains even more knowing that I got 10m of fabric for £10!
Whilst I was making them I did something that I have never done before - I sew through my finger. Man, that is painful. There wasn't much blood but lots of pain - also bear in mind I was using a big industrious size needle to get through all that fabric. I now have two perfect puncture marks on my rather swollen finger. Will try very hard not to do that again!
Tomorrow I have some studying to do (groan) but will try and get some more sewing done as well, I have some mystery quilt along blocks to get on with and the back of the over the sea QAL. I don't think I will be doing all those crosses, I just don't have the time!
Oh, and I finally managed to join pinterest: wow, what a fabulous way to waste loads of time, I will have to be very careful with my time management with that!
