Life in the studio seem to be - finally - coming together. There's still lots of work to do in the house and next on my agenda will be getting the suite finished and rented - as in start generating revenue to pay the bills - HOWEVER... for this week... no paintbrushes, no painting clothes, no renovations, just sewing.
My friend Barb is visiting for the week. When she asked what she could do to help after my fall, I replied just get here as soon as possible. I knew for sure we'd be in the studio sewing and that was definitely what I wanted to do. She arrived around 2:00 yesterday afternoon, we had tea, walked Miss Chloe, picked up groceries, ate dinner, and were sewing in the studio by six. YES YES!
For a "return to sewing" project, I made two pillowcases for my oldest grandson's Christmas present and re-made a pillow form smaller and flatter, more appropriate for a two year old. It was a simple project and just perfect. Measure, pin, stitch, press. There's something about crisply pressing cotton that soothes the soul, especially the soul that's been out of the studio for way too long.
My next project is the bunting bags for my youngest grandson. They're a bit more complicated and I'm a little less rusty so hopefully all goes well.
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - two stitched and crisply pressed pillow cases
