While at Hobby Lobby this weekend I picked up 2 yards of this fleece. My Love had requested a blanket. Easy. Sure. I got this.
This is now day 2 of the blanket project.
Let’s recap
Day 1: upper thread brakes twice, lower thread brakes once, stitching gets wonky, wonky stitches removed, stitches go wonky (again), stitches removed (again).
Day 2: rethreading machine, start with new needle, realize the problem is the selected stitch, change stitches (I will fix it so no one will tell), realize I can not hide the stitches and be happy with how it looks, cut off all sewing that took place thus far. So now I have slightly under 2 yards of fabric and will start again tomorrow.
Despite all this I am enjoying myself.


Sunday Afternoon Pillow

I have been wanting to make a pillow for my couch. Something that would give me comfort when curled up reading my Kindle, flipping through a sewing magazine or perusing a cookbook. Something with a bit of style that would look nice on our brown couch. It totally came to fruition today.

* There was a few setbacks with The Tote bag Project— sewed not one but 2 side pockets closed, ran out of bobbin thread, bobbin thread snapped, thread did not want to wind onto bobbin, dropped an entire container of pins on the kitchen floor. I figured enough for the weekend…needed to comfort myself hence the pillow!!

Hope your all having a Beautiful Sunday!
