I sewed something!
Despite the sewing room pitch-and-toss/reorganization being done (...because the guy who was going to refinish my tub suddenly had a couple of days free and could do it "right now"!!! ) ...I did a little sewing today.
My DIL found an over-sized pillow and asked me to make a pillow cover for it so that grandson George can prop up and read with it behind his back. BTW - George is oldest grandchild who is going off to college in a couple of weeks.
With the closure of my LQS, the only options I have for fabric are Hobby Lobby and Walmart and I was fortunate to find some cotton duck/canvas that wouldn't be embarrassing for a college freshman (i.e., no flowers, kitties, or puppies)
I kept it simple (no zipper or buttons), just an envelope back... but while I was sewing, I was reminded that my next sewing project needs to be a non-slip mat for the sewing machine pedal that likes to slide further and further out of reach.
I had pinned instructions for a non-slip sewing machine foot pedal mat (link) on Pinterest for this day... and it will be my next project.
After I finish up the sewing room redo, I am promising myself to clean up after every single project. Anyone want to bet how long that resolution lasts???
