Well, I told you I was going to do some sewing today. I would have liked to accomplish more, but I got tied up doing housework! I had issues with my vacuum cleaner and it took more time to fix than I thought it would.
Anyway, here is what I accomplished.
This is a mug rug I made for a swap I am involved in. It took me longer than I thought, it was one of those projects that went wrong at every turn. I am happy with the way it turned out though. The photo doesn't do it justice.
The above photo is the apron I made for my swap partner. The pattern was a freebie from Joann Fabric. I had to make a few changes to it, but once I got going with it, it was ok. I used a gathering foot for the first time. It certainly did make the gathering easier. It took a bit of playing around with tensions and stitch length. I was able to gather and attach it to the apron at the same time. Boy, was it a time saver once I figured it out! Has anyone out there used a gathering foot before? Did you enjoy using it?
This is my pretty little puppy, Daisy. She is as worn out as I am!
Have a wonderful weekend! I will be stacking the 1 ton truck load of firewood that was delivered today! Oh yeah, did I mention we are not supposed to get above 36 degrees for a full week!
