Ohhhh...the weather outside is frightful.
But Bernice is so delightful.
Since I've no place to go,
Let me sew, let me sew, let me sew!
Last night was the Friday Night Sew-In. And, after running around town looking for new Christmas tree lights with Mr. P, I finally sat down to do something at around 7:00 pm.
Some of the projects I worked on are Top Secret and, therefore, cannot be revealed just yet. But I did make some progress on a table runner for my neighbour, inspired by Vanessa's tutorial.
I wanted to make the snowflakes random, each one different, as Vanessa suggested. That plan just didn't work for me.
So I went to the computer and printed out a snowflake colouring page. I was able to customize the size for my needs.
It was fiddly to appliqué, with all those round bits on the ends; I should have thought of that when I chose the pattern, but I was in a hurry to find something that worked. My go-to snowflake pattern that I've used a few times before was a bit too large, and it was time for something different anyway.
I got all the appliqué done (it took me until 1:00 am) and now just have to hem the edges.
I used Kona cotton in Straw for the background. I love it - I'll definitely be ordering more of that fabric!
So...what did you do on Friday Night?
