Home at noon and I broke out an old project. I want to design and create a geography quilt of my little town here south of Miami. It has a long way to go, but here is a tiny preview. It's on the contemporary side….new genre for me.
I spent about 30 minutes working on a project that I have long wished to begin. An organization called Days For Girls http://daysforgirls.org provides sanitary napkin kits to young ladies in far off places. It changes their lives. I have started making kits. I hope to spend a few minutes each day on this very worthy cause. Sewists can, indeed change the world.
Then my daughter popped into my studio and asked me to make a choker for her with a little charm that she bought with her BFF. We dug around till she settled on a black pique satin ribbon. She was very pleased with the result. 10 minute project including routing around for ribbon. I put a barrel type clasp on the ends so she can easily remove it.
AndI finally shipped Emery's pinwheel quilt to her sweet parents with my love and affection.
A day in the life of a sewist!
