I Threw It Away

 I got the new zipper to try and make the bag from the monthly club. I worked all morning, I made mistakes again and had to take out four different seams. But I did it to prove to myself that I could do it. In the end, it was a disaster. Fabric kept getting caught in the zipper. So I threw it away. Forget that #$%^.

Note to self: Don't buy stuff you see on FaceBook.

But all is not lost. I got a kit in the mail yesterday. I signed up for The School Girl Sewing Club through The Crewel Gobelin. This is the first kit for the year. 

The chart is good. They didn't skimp on the threads. I started stitching the scissors fob. I goofed and used the wrong accent color on the crown but it looks okay. I also added a bit to one side of the fob. It was a little too plain. And I finished it! I may even stitch the sampler. I started the upper left hand corner but then I got the idea to do a long armed cross in Artic Ice instead of cross stitch in Dirt Road for the border.

We'll see how things work out.



  1. Artic ice sounds so much better than dirt road!
    P.S. Thanks so much for that amazing Danish Pastry!!!! -BFF

  2. I've also done that when making a bag, couldn't get it right, so I trashed it, spent enough time on it.
    That's a beautiful Sampler.
