I was making pajama pants for my favourite little boy. Unfortunately, I failed to realize that I had not made a waistband, until I needed a waist band. So, he received the annual "I didn't quite finish this" gift. (His mother got the annual "I bought it but I don't know where I put it" gift.) However, I sat quietly the other day, and figured out what needed to be done to make the waistband, since I had only scraps of fabric left.
The pajama pants are finished and you can't see where I pieced that waistband. Success. Note to self, buy 1.5 yds of fabric for his PJ pants now. He is growing up.
I also decided to do the Project Quilting Mystery Quilt Along, again this year. I did it twice before, here and here.
This time, I was not as happy with the results as my previous two tries. The end product is Project Quilting written in braille, as a wall hanging. I decided not to turn it into a wall hanging, that wasn't really my style, but after some thought, I decided it could easily become a tote bag.
So this will be one side:
And this will be the other side:
I have enough of the blue to make the sides and bottom of the bag, and enough of the pink to make straps. I have kitted the blocks with the fabric, all ready to become a bag,
I tallied my finishes for this past year. I feel as though I did nothing but make masks, but I seem to have done a lot more.
Masks Too many to count (I lost track but >100)
PJ Pants 1
Christmas Stockings 2
Zippered Pouches 5
Mask Pouches 3
Laptop sleeve 1
Baby Socks 3
We also hosted 4 foster cats.
This is Dean, our current guest.
I also read a lot more than I did in 2020. My favourite book of the year had to be "The Rose Code" by Kate Quinn.
I worked a lot on organizing my sewing supplies. I'm not finished yet, but things are looking much better and I am having an easier time finding what I have. I highly recommend comic book boards for turning fabric into mini bolts. This year, my office will also be receiving an overhaul.
