Last night was my first Friday Night Sew-In. Yay!
I started out my stitchin' evening around 7:00 p.m. with the September pincushion from the Shabby Fabrics Pincushion Club.
I managed to complete all of the sewing. I was a little bummed that all of the final, finishing steps involved fabric glue. As I had no fabric glue on hand, I was unable to finish it. But, it will be ready to go once I get some glue!
Next up was the October pincushion. I got the initial piecing done and traced all of the embroidery designs-- so it will be ready to go when I'm ready for some handwork. (This one is gonna be super cute, I think!)
Then I moved on to some pajamas for Big Bear for Christmas. I managed to trace the pattern and get all of the pieces cut. At the same time, I also cut out another Christmas gift item (that will have to remain a mystery for now) and even got it all sewn up.
Since I can't share a picture of the completed project just yet, here's a picture of my trusty scalpel-like seam ripper which saw way more than its fair-share of use last night. Sigh... two long stitched and serged (4-thread overlock, no less) seams. For I bit, I was feeling like I was spending more time unsewing than actual sewing. But I did finish (eventually!). That's what I get for sewing so late at night!
It was 1:45 a.m. when I finally closed up the quilt mines. I admit that I wasn't working that entire time (had to stop for some snack-and-stretch breaks!). But it was still a fun and productive evening!
