I have finally gotten off my duff and finished some past-due anniversary giveaways. It's totally pathetic, but I had big plans for two of them--a corsage pin cushion and a pillow with a welt piping. Of course, I had no pattern for the first and had never made piping. So, big bite. And today I chewed! I made a piped pillow. I made a pincushion. I made a corsage-style pincushion (after a few false starts). The seam ripper got a workout. But I am very pleased with all the results. I will post photos when I get confirmation that they have arrived.
I even started the finishing of the "Family Matters" pillow for my aunt. Yeah, the one I started last April.
I'm on a roll now. I sewed up an ornament. Now I've settled in to sew on trim. You probably remember how much I love that.
I am going to feel much better when this is all done. I won't have those guilty feelings just walking into my craft room any more. That'll be nice!
