Unless you count coughing, blowing my nose and not sleeping, I haven't done much this weekend. I detest being sick and this is the second cold I've had in as many months. Child in preschool (aka germ petri dish) + two daily trips on public transportation (aka another germ petri dish) have conspired against me.
I did get a wee bit of sewing done last night before I coughed my head off all night long:
And I got the confetti/sewing machine cover pieced too:
So I have a dilemma - I was planning just to drape this over the machine and add a couple ties to each side to make it into a sewing machine cover. But it's too small as-is to cover my machine. Should I add some borders in the white fabric and continue with the plan, or keep this as-is as a stand-alone wall hanging and make a different cover that actually fits?
You'll have lots of time to ponder that question, because I'm taking a break while I a) recover from this cold and b) participate in a week-long intensive training course for work (there's even homework!!). See you soon!
Boo hiss, another rotten cold! I hope they go easy on the homework so you can get some sleep. Poor you! Hot water, lemon & honey (tastes so much better than Buckley's). Be well!ReplyDelete
Ugg, feel better!!ReplyDelete
And I really like your HST place mats. Perfect idea and execution! And not sure I have any sounds advice for your machine cover, but I sure do like it a lot!!
Oh, hope you feel better soon. The placemats look great - and black batting?! Wow, I've never seen that! For the machine cover, I guess I would probably add white borders. It's very cool!ReplyDelete
Hope you're feeling better quickly! Love the placemats... you've given me an IDEA! *lol*ReplyDelete
oh you poor thing! Feel better soon, and I hope the course goes well. I love the look of your machine cover and I would probably be inclined to hang it on the wall and make a new one! Great placemats, too!ReplyDelete
Hope you have recovered from the icky cold! Love the cover!ReplyDelete
