On my list this morning was daughter’s favorite sweater, 2 pair of grandson’s pants and a wool pants, and one of my jeans and wool socks. All done now and it feels good.
I have a hard time leaving my sewing room without doing something quilting related, so I added a little embellishment to the last of my chick quilts which I thought was done, but it wasn’t so now it has a couple of experimental free motion stitched flowery creations.
I was totally sure I would use red orange and bright pink yarn to pick up the colours of the beak and feet,
but it did not look right, so I went with the light purple and green. Much better.
I also did a little no-sew-mending in the morning before kindergarten. Grandson’s snow pants had a big tear on the knee and the back, and I did not want to stitch it as it would make holes in the water resistant fabric. Duct tape to the rescue, I was a duct tape virgin so I was surprised to see that it was still intact after a day of play.
The only complaint is that it doesn’t have a band aid effect. The tear will still be there when I remove the tape. Won’t it?
Have a wonderful weekend!
