There was a small pile on my sewing room floor of fabrics that I meant to use for various projects. Yesterday I used up that pile.
I had been meaning to line a pair of curtains to replace worn out ones in my bathroom. I finally got the fabric which I was delighted with since it actually is drapery lining material. I was very simple sewing and I'm happy I got that done. Of course, nothing goes without a hitch or two. One lining was too short and I had to add to it a bit. Now they are done and hung.
Then a year ago I took a class from Amy Mitten through our guild.
We stitched Mute But Not Silent sampler. Amy Mitten's model had handkerchief linen on the back of it just to protect it. I really liked the look of that. It looked so nice and neat and you couldn't see the back of the stitching. I always meant to do that. But finding the handkerchief linen wasn't so easy. Amy Mitten said she got hers at JoAnn's. A few weeks ago I came across some handkerchief linen and bought some. Now I have a hunk pinned to the back of the sampler. I need to hunt up the instructions for Mute But Not Silent to see if Amy Mitten describes how to sew it on unobtrusively.
Then I got my glue out of the refrigerator and made up another lining for the trinket box. I tried to get the original lining to fold like I wanted at the corner but just couldn't get there. So I cut just a bit larger piece of the silk and glued the special Hobart Dark paper to it.
It has a couple of bubbles in it (rats!) so I need to reglue those places before I try and make it fit in the box. I guess it helps to have something weighting it down while it dries.
Walking is done and bathrooms are clean.
