Back in the fall I was taking an online sewing class. I got sidetracked...by other projects, by Thanksgiving, by Christmas, by tax returns, by being lazy. I even got a new sewing machine for Christmas. It took me three months to even take it out of the box. And then a few more to try it out.
But Friday I decided to do something. I cut out 3 projects. One was a Black Apple Doll. One was a dinosaur tale, and one was an ironing board cover from the Home Ec sewing class...everybody needs a little variety in their life.
Yesterday afternoon I started the doll...but had to learn how to wind the bobbin, thread the bobbin, thread the machine. By the time I got through with all that I only had time to sew up the arms and legs before heading out to watch the roller derby bout.
It was a dreary day in Richmond today...a good day for sewing. I finished the doll but she is not worthy of a picture. One arm points the wrong way and she has a lump in her body. I think that I will salvage her legs and start over.
But the ironing board cover is finished!!!
