Where does time go. It is July already. I didn't really mean to put you all off and I really don't know what came over me. But here I am.
Here is what I have to say and I am sticking to it. My machines (2) were in the shop getting a good cleaning and tune up. I think maybe I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't sew. But I have one back and will pick up the other one tomorrow. I have been drawing pictures. Pictures of bags I want to make. Ideas, ideas and more ideas. I used to have horses and I was thinking back on those days and kinda missing that whole experience. Ya know, you can tell all your secrets to those critters and they never tell a soul. They just look at you and wink as if to say "Your secret is safe with me. Now give me another flake of hay please." Anyway I have one idea from those days. Shhhhh I can't tell. It's still a secret.
Presently I am working on a "Teachers Pet". I can't wait to get it done. I needed the guidance to put in a drawstring so that it looked good. This is the pattern I chose to do it. I never realized it consisted of so many choices. A jelly roll and in all my out of whack wisdom I chose a Bali Pack (Cotton Candy) instead. Now at least in a Jelly Roll you have doubles. BUT in a Bali Pack EVERY one is different and there were 42 choices. I hate making those kinds of choices. Give me 2 or 3 maybe but 42 and all I could pick were 19 and I changed that to about 10. Oh my I didn't think I was ever going to figure out which ones I wanted to use. But on the upside. I now have enough left to make another bag my way since I will know how to do the drawstring. And I have ideas already how I want to do it.
Like I said I should have it done in a day or two and I can't wait to show it to you!!!!!
