Or to be more exact...
So much to do, so much time, but I have been lazy this week!!!
I am not sure what is going on with me, either I am worn out from the QUILT SHOW. Or worn out from rearranging the area for my NEW GIRL,
But I have not touched a single thing since last Thursday.
But laundry, cleaning, and some volunteering at the school took priority the last two days.
So I apologize to all of my friends that are waiting on me, and Button for not getting his highchair cushion finished!!
It does, however, look like a FREE DAY today for sewing until my heart's content!!!!
So here are all of my UFOs (unfinished objects in sewing speak for my non-sewing followers)
I did cut out the new fabric that replaced my old choice that finally arrived at the end of last week!
My machine will be quite busy today making my puffies and poly fill stuffing is in my future today!
My goal is just cutting the pattern from the old cushion. I won't put too much pressure on myself!
Cuppa Joe Swap Blocks
I have my background brown blocks cut. Now I just need to get working on the mug appliques. I feel like a complete schmuck that a) I forgot and b) I didn't work on them the last week....SORRY Crafty Sewing Mamas!!!!
Fall Throw Pillow Covers
I have this fabric cut out.
I still have to take off the Halloween Covers. Yes, I know Halloween is over, but I didn't get to enjoy them very long!
Do you like the new fabric? I am not sure if I am going cutesy or what yet. I do know that I am keeping some of the larger pillows simple like I did for Halloween!
Christmas Musical Costumes
Did I mention that one of my major volunteering jobs at my boys school is to sew new and alter old costumes. It's that time of the year again!
So far, it looks like only alterations after yesterdays fittings!! Last year, the three camel costumes about put me under. I work with all donated fabrics (did I mention how ugly donated fabrics can be?) and just pray that Mary and Joseph are around the same height as last year's, because those two costumes are the more elaborate. Luckily, I have HUGE hem allowances on most of the costumes, because middle schoolers are notoriously either REALLY tall or REALLY tiny!
Did I mention that the musical director wants them all done by the end of next week before Thanksgiving break? YIKES!
So if you could, can you chant?
Go. Heidi. Sew. Heidi. Go. Heidi. Sew Heidi.
