What a week! So much done, and so many new things learned.
Sheets and pillowcases – not scary! (I had no idea there was more than one kind of seam). Bags (and a bonus basket) – also not scary! That’s four finished objects right there (five, if you count both pillowcases).
And works in progress, too. I said I wanted to make some placemats on Wednesday. Well, as of Thursday evening, I have 6 pieced placemats, 6 backings cut, 6 sets of wadding cut, and 6 sets of binding, all ready to go. Next step, basting and quilting!
I also said I wanted to make a skirt. Here’s how it looked on Thursday afternoon:
All cut out and ready to go. I winged the pattern (I drew around my favourite skirt and added a seam allowance). At bedtime Thursday, it looks like a skirt! I need to sew down the waistband and hem it, and then I have a new skirt! Woah! There must be something in the water, or I’m drinking way too much caffeine 🙂
