A sudden mood of "getting things done" came upon me today, and one of the things I applied it to was some sewing projects that have been piling up.
I started with the hem on a hanging that is used in church during Holy Week (the week before Easter). It was given to me after being used this year, and I was told it didn't need to be back until next year. I thought I'd beat the deadline. :)
That's one for "you."
Next I decided to tackle a belt I bought a while ago that was just too big to use. I was always reaching for it as if it would fit this time, and then realizing that no it still didn't.
That's one for me.
Next up was a pillow cover for someone at church. (Long story version--someone else at church approached me about this sewing project because she had agreed to do it but it wasn't getting done, and it had been a long time and she was feeling guilty. I know that feeling. So I said I would give it a go.)
I think it turned out nicely:
That's two for "you."
And then I finally mended a long sleeve T I had gotten from somewhere and then noticed that it had several holes in the sleeve seam.
That two for me.
Having gotten all those projects out of the way, I started to play with the block for the county fair. I'll talk more about that another time...
