So let’s see what’d I do today?….I got up early today…WOW!!! good for me!!!…took care of our lonely Daffy duck…
the one I sold:
and the other two(which I hope to list tomorrow):
Also Saturday I made two aprons… there are two seahorses on each bottom corner of the apron, just stitched around the seahorse, edges left raw…
Also last week I made an artful apron…good thing the design is unwashable..cause if it was washed that muslin would shrink up and ruin the whole look…hahaha….
I wont be having a sewing lesson tomorrow because dad has some how gotten the flu…*ack…* don’t give it to me!!! And we’d rather not get my sewing teacher sick…and then next lesson is off too, as she is going out of town…So..I have an extra month to finish the assignment..though really she said I have until the end of all the lessons, but I’d much rather get it done now….so far I’ve prepped the pattern pieces, cut all the pieces I need, dry ironed the pieces, and today I washed and ironed the fabric, which this time is just a plain muslin, but I plan to buy my own copy of the pattern, and make some of the little outfits out of linen and other nice fabrics.
Oh..and I made mom a rag quilt for her birthday(early present, I got impatient, couldn’t wait til the 17th….haha…it ended up measuring like 5 foot and a few inches by 5 foot and a few inches(obviously it is square) there are 64 little squares in the center…but…because of the type of quilt…I have to cut 3 times that…64 for the backing, 64 for the flannel inside, and 64 for the top cloth…yeesh! than the 20 squares around the 64..then the 4 squares and 4 rectangles…took time, but was it worth it? oh yeah! she loves it and it totally goes with her whole “farm girl” theme she has going in the living room right now….the picture is actually sideways..the quilt is not lopsided…honest it isn’t…ha ha
so anyways…that’s what all I have been up to…I’m gonna do a quick spell check here, and then read a bit of the book I have to study for my learners permit..yup…you heard right…..I’m actually going to get it(well, I was anyways..but I was stalling)…I’m going to study the book a bit more..take the online 4 hour(ugh) thing on drugs and alcohol, and then, I have two other tests to take for it, then I guess I get my permit..then after 80(or 50) hours of driving time and( and/or..cant remember) 1 year….I get that little piece of plastic that says I can drive…as long as I don’t fail….hahaha
