We just watched Run Lola, Run the other night – it’s a German movie (with subtitles, of course). I wasn’t intending to watch it ‘cuz I wanted to sew, but I eventually got sucked in and sat watching while my sewing machine sat idle. Lola spends half the movie running and running and running. That’s how I feel now. The craft show is 4 days away, and while I feel like I’ve been pretty diligent in getting things done, there is always more I could do. While a movie titled Sew Linda, Sew might be just as intense, I’m guessing no one would want to watch me hunched over my sewing machine while the needle pounds away.
Here’s what I want to get done over then next few days:
1. Make something out of this fabric combo (sorry for not ironing it!)
2. Make something out of this fabric combo:
3. print labels for purses/quilts, etc.
4. attach labels and prices to everything
5. finalize the booth floorplan with my craft show partner, Cindy.
And can you stand just one more diaper bag? One of the reasons for this blog is to keep a record of what I’ve made so here goes. This one was sewn yesterday while I was feeling sick, sick, sick and all I could do was sleep, sew, and sleep some more. I’m calling this one Victorian Rose. This fabric is beautiful – by Kate Greenaway.
Here’s one more purse – I’ve been trying to play around with different shapes and using up bits of fabric.
