So - I finally got in the mood to do some crafting/hooking/quilting/stitching - whatever this past weekend. I pulled out my linen and a pattern to do a "rug" to hang over the door that leads from the living room into the kitchen. Got it cut, folded over the edges and did a zig zag stitch to keep the linen from unraveling. Then per the directions I drew a rectangle that was so lopsided! So I had my husband help me get it drawn on straight. So, I pinned my pattern that I had traced onto red dot tracing fabric and attempted to trace the pattern onto the linen.... I ran out of ink in my marker!!! :(
So then I decided I'd go to the fabric store and buy fabric to make a quilt for my granddaughter's baby. So I looked for the pattern I was going to make it into - split rail fence - couldn't find it in my room. So I went online to see if I could find directions and fabric requirements online. Didn't have a lot of luck there. So I decided that I'd wait until today - a friend had sent me a pattern via email here at work. I've printed that out, have the fabric requirements and will go get the fabric and the marker after work.
Next I decided I'd work on my Christmas crafts which is a stitchery piece that is supposed to be a pillow. Not sure if I'll make it into a pillow or just frame it. Anyhoo, every time I'd go to thread the needle I'd drop it, have to get out of my chair to look for it so I quickly became frustrated! And then on top of all of that our air conditioner isn't working properly so I was getting hot. So I gave up! LOL!
I know, I know - I should be posting pictures but since I'm at work doing this I just don't have the pictures to post. Those will come later!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
