Another CreativFestival done! It was a great show, although I really didn`t get a chance to look around at all and that saved me some money. The show seemed to be pretty busy the entire time - I did manage to get around to do all my errands so I was very happy about that. Saved me some shipping and other hassle. Just have to be thinking ahead and plan plan plan. But I came home inspired and excited to get things done and that it what it is all about!
I remember commenting to someone that they were "lucky" that they could take an extended period of time off. She replied - - "nope - careful planning!!!! So one must constantly be on the outlook for ways of combining tasks for efficiency and saving money.
Also had VERY SUCCESSFUL $10 classes yesterday at HH. I have loads of pictures to post and I am going to try and do that later today? tomorrow? I want to get back to the picture business.
Today is Sit n Sew - - a bit more relaxed than the last couple of days - six people are coming, but as I pulled into the driveway last night around nine, I thought - OH NO - I have nothing for lunch. I guess I will be hitting the grocery store right after I post this!!!!
As I said - the last couple of days have been a bit chaotic? to say the least!!!!! Have a look.............
|Yikes - there are SIX people coming to sew?????|
|However a half hour later and look - all tidied up!|
I wish I had pictures from the old days when the floor was covered with stuff - all the tables were heaped. Instead of taking a half hour - it took days to clean up!!!!
And as I was cleaning - there is a LOT of stuff that is almost finished - I need to book a day with myself to get those things done so I can stop moving them around!!!!!
|However my sewing table requires a bit more work!|
So.................... have you ever done something and while you are doing it - you know it is WRONG. You know you are not going to be happy with it. Come on - we have all done that!!! Well I was sewing Amish with a Twist the other day. Now I did something that I tell my students NOT to do. But I really want to be as prepped as I could so I PRECUT the sashings for Amish with a Twist ACCORDING to the pattern. YES - according to the pattern, NOT my actual block. And instead of having enough common sense to realize that they were a smidgen too big - I proceeded to EASE them onto the blocks. Well, once I got it sewn together - I don't like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a look in the picture above - you can just see the bottom edge - very WAVY!!!!!
|Here it is on the table - too ripply for my liking.|
Besides getting the studio cleaned up - I also got a quilt loaded this morning. It is to be done for tomorrow morning, so will be working on that after the ladies leave today.
|Quilt loaded and ready to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
That leaves Monday Motivators and a speaking engagement at a guild and then I will have survived the marathon!!!!! Tuesday is looking like an awesome day at this point, although I will be playing catchup.
On that note - I am out of here - got stuff to get done before the group arrives.
Have an awesome day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
