Projects: Friday, Sept 25 - Oct 1, 2017.

Sewing isn't a hobby that you can just spend five minutes on and be done.  For one thing, I don't want to just tackle one project and that's it. Doesn't it make more sense to complete projects that take the same colour thread?  I needed black for a skirt I hoped to stitch up but there was white in my machine.  I also had a new dish towel waiting to be hung up so I used the white to stitch a ribbon look on to my towel and that completed two tasks.... using the white thread to make the loop and tidying up my kitchen. HA!

So, I threaded the black into my machine and was then able to complete a repair project of stitching up a turtle neck that had a hole in the arm pit.  Another task done AND now my Monday outfit was nearly complete... that black turtle neck with some black tights and..... I needed to make my skirt!  

I found the cutest fabric at Value Village.  I found a bright pink bright pink Disney fitted sheet with black flowers and Minnie Mouse head and ears.  I wasn't sure what I would do with it but I had to have it for less than $10!!

I had hoped to get some book/journal covers done for the upcoming vendor show, in October, but home-making/managing duties too over. Great day, overall.  I did all this while being inspired with Mickey Mouse and The Wizard of Oz movies playing in the background, so I can't complain. Haha! #blissfullife #feelthemagic
