The first day back to school after any sort of break is killer, but yesterday was worse than ever. I had so many loose ends to tie up from December and all I really wanted was to be home with my new sewing machine.
I dashed home, got dinner on, tidied up a bit and headed to my craft room. The first thing I worked on was another set of cat cards (by request). I wasn't sure about the paper, I didn't have much selection, but I really like the way they turned out. Not quite as "matchy" as mine usually are.
The second thing I really wanted to try was a coffee cozy from the book that I purchased just before Christmas called Fabric Leftovers. I love love love my coffee, but my favourite coffee place doesn't provide those little cuffs for the cups to keep you hands from burning. I always ask for it to be "double cupped" because otherwise I can't hold it. I thought this was a cute solution.
I need to adjust the size a little bit from the pattern in the book. But it was soo much fun to make!! I wouldn't have been able to do it on my old machine.
The last thing I wanted to do last night was make another patchwork wristlet. I have it in my head how I wanted to do it but I ran out of steam at around 8:00 and hit the couch. Hopefully tonight.
