...NSM Days 17-20
You know by now that I love Swoon Patterns. The last few days of National Sewing Month were not very kind to me. Or my brain was not very kind to me. This wallet is called Pearl and she is fabulous! Not a hard sew at all. But my brain confused me at almost every step of the way.
If the instructions said to place the card slot openings on the right, I place them on the left and sewed them down. The seam ripper is now dull with all the use it got this week.
Here is an example of my brain at work. The tab need to be centered. There are nice marks on the center of the tab and the center of the wallet piece. Did I line them up? No, I did not. Not the first time anyhow! In the end, I love the way Pearl turned out. She is fun and I can't wait to use her.
Today I start something not quilt related or Swoon related. Today I am going to start making myself a bra. I've had the kits and the DVDs from BravoBella for over 2 years. Now I am going to work on this until I get one that fits me perfect. Wish me luck. I'm pretty excited about it again.
My goal to sew every day this month was interrupted by 45 pounds of tuna that needed put in jars on Saturday. My niece offered to share her catch if I would teach her to can. OK. Ernie, Anna and I used 2 pressure cookers and 133 jars and got it all done. That night Ernie had to "taste test" it and it passed his test. I couldn't move from the recliner......
