After writing my list of the 9 projects I have on the go, (click HERE), it has helped me to become focused.
The 2 sections of squares became the little zipper pouch. DONE! And, I think it’s super cute! (Thank you Cathy for the package of squares!)
I fixed the table runner that was short of batting on one end and short of backing on the other. It’s now trimmed and the binding is cut and ready to sew on. I backed it with Christmas fabric, so that it would have a dual purpose. It’s a great idea, but made choosing the binding a lot more difficult!
All of my other projects will now be put into a bin and I will work on them when I have a chance.
These next pictures were taken before I went to Ontario at the end of July. The first picture is my sewing room … the machine is to the right. The 2nd picture is the guest bed. It’s changed a little, but not much.
I’m not sure if you have heard about all the wildfires that are burning in British Columbia. There are a LOT. We used to live in Fort St. James (centre of BC) and there is a huge and angry fire burning south of there and towards the town. Friends of ours run a Bible camp that received an Evacuation Order yesterday. They are heading here with their family of 6 and 3 extra people. SEW the
MESS signs of CREATIVITY will need to be cleaned up so people can sleep in these rooms.
I have no idea when they are arriving and how long they will be staying. I doubt if I’ll be sewing very much, but I will blog when I can. SEW don’t worry: I’ll be enjoying the wonderful chaotic time and will probably even go on a few adventures with them as they do day trips around Vancouver.
