I took today just for me! I walked the dog a couple of times with my friend (which I still consider time for me), but that was all! Hubby was sweet and made our lunch and a delicious dinner. It was a nice quiet day with me at the sewing machine, and he reading the last of his book.
Why did I want this time today? Well, I worked 53 hours and drove 886 miles in 6 days! For those of you who don't know, I merchandise flowers at three different SuperTarget stores. I love my part time job, except at the end of these big holidays. I am just soooo tired! Out of 6,000 bouquets and vased products, there were only about 2 dozen (total) left at all three of my stores the next morning. I would say it was a successful event!
I've heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. Following are my two thousand words about what I sewed today:
|Under the needle|
|The finished project|
This was fun, but if you plan on using your selvages in this manner, make sure you load a LOT of bobbins before you begin. I used 8 bobbins total....but since it was old thread that I don't like to use for my quilting, I am a happy camper to upcycle all this
trash treasure! I still have some selvage left and I have a plan. Watch out! I'll be bob-bob-bobbin along over the next few days, getting ready for the next project!
