Have you heard that before? from me? well I still say it … often.. like today !!
ya know! I saw the cutest purse pattern and couldn’t live without it…so Maurine ordered it and said to herself…… self, you can make that, I know you can.so…. months later,
I drag it out of the UFO ( unfinished Objects ) stash and rip it apart, cut new pieces, but first I have to tell you about my sleepless
night, where I took my pattern pages to bed with me and read and underlined and said to myself… I do believe I understand it NOW !!
well, that was in the night….
back to the story again…. after taking it apart and cutting new pieces, I start all over… hadn’t got to page two before it just didn’t FIT. OK I ripped it up again.
if at first you don’t succeed !!
well, dangit !! I won’’t give up !!
so back to the sewing machine, and laying out the pieces…. again !!
Oh, I think I got it… yep, I do think I got it !!
well, I get to the last piece and
oh, rats, rats, rats !!
It’s too small… point doesn’t fit.
now this shouldn’t be happening.. not to me…
now, doesn’t that look simple…
well , it will have to wait for another
day of struggling to fit the pieces
Here is Net’s latest project.
It’s made from just a piece of fabric, lined and then put into the metal frame… so cute !!
She also made this oven mitt
from quilted fabric.. Even put a cuff on it…
well, enough for tonight
but we’ll chat more tomorrow..
