I really do still sew....
I know I have been not posting much about sewing lately, and most of that has to do with my wonderful sewing machine STILL being in the shop! I am NOT happy with all the excuses I have been receiving every time I call the shop to find out if the machine is finished. It is now well past two months that I have been separated from my Janome Memory Craft 9700. True, I have been borrowing my mom's more basic Janome, but it just does not do all the things I need it to do...things that my MC does beautifully. Sigh...
But just to show you that "Goosegirl" truly does still sew, I am putting up pics of my most recent project. These cushion covers were for a custom client. Self welted with boxed edges and concealed zippers. Yippy skippy.
No Rick-Rack to be found anywhere near these cushions. But....they are for a paying client and I am thrilled to have the work. This kind of sewing, I can do with just a basic machine and the hours after the kids go to bed.
I also made 4 tablecloths this week for the MOPS table decorations, and a cape for another Kindergarten class. I forgot to take a pic of the cape. But really, this stuff is NOT thrilling and not challenging in any way.
Everything turned out nice, but I am dying to get back to fun sewing.
In the meantime, I am working on organizing my sewing area. I had it partially done a few months back, and then never really finished the job to my own satisfaction, so it went WAYYYYYY downhill from there.
I have loads of gorgeous fabrics that I am dying to cut into and sew up. I will be making lots of fun pretties out of these fabrics and will be stocking my Etsy shop soon.
Really, I do promise that very soon I will be posting some really fun new things. Really... I promise... or as Ahnalin says when she REALLLLLLLY wants you to be impressed, " I DOUBLE PROMISE!!"
Ok, heading to bed now since we have to be up stinkin' early because India needs to be at church at 5:30 AM for a rehearsal. YIKES! But she is an amazing actress and I am so proud of her.
More later......I DOUBLE PROMISE!!
