Ronnie had the day off today, so he watched the animals all day so I could sew. What a wonderful guy I’m married to!!!!!!!!
So, this is what I did: I hemmed 2 pair of jeans that have been hanging on the back of the door for about 6 months. Since I’ve lost 20 pounds I’ll more than likely end up altering them, too, now. But they’re hemmed anyway. Then, I bound the seams on the Babylock covers I made for my machines. They had begun to fray and every time I removed them to sew I went, “Ewwwww!”. Fixed! Then I made the pattern for a tote bag I’ve been wanting to make for myself. I had drawn it out on paper but hadn’t cut it out or made the pattern to cut it out. Then I made the tote bag, too! It’s all done except I want to put webbing handles and didn’t have any black, so that has to wait. But I love the bag!
Also, we opened the box that contained the Model 99K Singer we bought that was delivered Monday. I threaded it and it sews but have yet to try to mend Bandit’s harnesses with it. I looked up the serial number online and it was manufactured in 1956 so it’s an authentic antique, too. Altogether it’s been a great day for me. Tomorrow is another day. I have fabric to make pillow cases out on my cutting table. Will I get to make them? Stay tuned!
