I am involved in a swap on one of my Yahoo groups and this is what I have made for it. I took an old glove that I found at an estate sale and "redid" it. I had so much fun and a little help from my friend Suzanne in Australia. Such a nice lady she is.
We have been experiencing wonderful weather here in Oregon. At lease for me. I am praying that the heat is over and we continue with the cool/sometimes rainy weather. I have finally been sleeping well and being quite productive in the sewing room. I am almost finished quilting a quilt. I made 7 tissue cases on my embroidery machine this weekend, I did a lot of clean-up in the sewing room and made a really cute vintage spool pincushion as you can see above.
I know it's only September, but I am looking forward to December. I have two weeks off from work and I am not going to fall, do Christmas, or anything else that my DH wants me to do. I AM GOING TO SEW and enjoy my time off. I am gathering fabric (like I don't already have enough) and projects to work on while I am home. i promised myself I was going to do this last year, but had a nasty fall at work, that I am still recovering from, so this year is it.
This year is going to be ANETT time....sounds selfish, but that's the way it's going to go this year. I sound like this is really going to happen don't I! Well, if I can make it happen it will, but I rarely can pull something like this off. I know someone will come along and need help and I will not be able to say NO. I am still not very good at that one, but I am trying.
Have a good week all.
