I am very bad today. I skipped pilates. I wasn't there last week because I went to a class. So I have missed it for two weeks in a row. It was nice to have the whole morning to myself without having to go anywhere.
I have finished the two projects from Cabinet of Curiosities. I managed to work with the thread loops on the ultrasuede and make them less noticeable. I didn't find any ultrasuede in my stash (although I know I have some somewhere). So I just went ahead and put the cuff on. It looks okay. I did make a mistake as I was sewing on the cuff but it is no big deal. I tried to get the decorative holes on the glove to show but they just won't. So I gave up. It is what it is.
Then I was on a roll and decided to finish the bug even though I didn't like how my background turned out. I have done the Needlework Nibble butterfly which is finished in the same way. I didn't like how the edge was done so I decided to try some different ways. First, I didn't like the sponge filling. I cut warm and natural into squares and piled it up for the filling and basted the pile together. Then I tried gathering the edge on my sewing machine using two different techniques. Nope, didn't look good. So then I decided to put a ribbon on the edge with teeny tiny stitches.
My aim today is to finish Aunt Julia's Sewing Box accessories needle/scissors book - and to put it together.
I smell a new start in my future....
