I have a difficult time not making crafts in a production line. I have learned not to make 12 of everything I make but I just decided that mass producing embellishments is okay. Well – according to my rules its okay.
On Wednesday, I leave for Stitchin’’ Chicks Quilt Camp again – YAY! Last Tuesday I took my sewing machine in for its annual check up. It’s been a year in my custody so it needed a good cleaning and tune up. Or so I thought…come to find out it was more serious than that. The patient is still at the hospital awaiting a transplant/part. So when I couldn’t make her free motion quilt, it wasn’t operator error. It would be comforting to find that out except I need to have her home to take her with me on Wednesday!!!
I digress…anyway while I wait for the call to retrieve her; I have taken over the kitchen island again where I am getting ready for camp. It’s time to cut that perfectly lovely fabric into little pieces so I can sew them back together again. When I’m not being destructive, I am making embellishments for things I will be making next week.
Flowers are flowing from my hands…
|The round rosettes are coiled strips and then glued to a circle of canvas.|
I will use these on the top of one of my ruffled totes.
I bought a painter’s drop cloth to cut into totes and other things like journal covers and may use it to reupholster a chair or two. So much to do and only 6 weeks left until our June Farmgirls Country Sales!!!
So back to the production line…
