Was a stay at home day. All of us are finally home from camp, sleepovers and overnighters to Grandma's. I was planning on spending the day firmly attached to my sewing machine
The day was going pretty good. Then I started to buttonhole a wall hanging I was trying to get finished up. And wouldn't you know it, my sewing machine decides to just konk out. I can sew it straight lines but buttonholing? No go. So I than go to do the fun task of ripping out buttonholing and not destroy my wallhanging. Luckily, the only casualty was a leaf that hadn't stuck all the way when I ironed down the applique; not a big deal
The big deal was(is? lol) I wanted to finish this TODAY. Not next week(or who know's when my machine will be repaired) *sigh* It's cute though isn't it? To save myself a step, I was buttonholing through the batting and backing as well for quilting; I really like that look. Plus it's faster in most cases lol
And not to be discouraged, I pulled out a layer cake I've been saving and went at it. Got it all cut up and it is currently being worked into a new project.
I've had this layer cake for a few months and truth be told, only bought it because of the top piece of fabric. I was very pleased with the yummy prints and colors that were revealed as I cut my way through it
