Last night, I participated in The Friday Night Sew In. I must admit, I was beat from a long week and had it not been for the Sew In, I would have crawled into bed early to watch tv. Luckily, I had already signed up, so I accomplished something! I finished one of my purses that had been sitting in the closet for over a year. It took longer than I would have thought, actually.
I did do the top quilting on the second bag as well. I think if I had all the other pieces cut out, I would have finished both. I am hoping to do so today. I already did my grocery shopping for the weekend, so I should be all set to sew some more instead of eating all of the groceries.
Did I mention that my iron had a meltdown. Yes, it is time to buy a new one....it became so hot last night that I noticed the plastic was burning. Fabulous.
Then I decided to show husband so he would not think I was being frivolous getting a new one, and I didn't realize how hot the plastic really was (sounds so stupid now) and I burned my finger right up under my nail (don't ask me how). I am having a hard time typing. Double fabulous. Does anyone have any iron suggestions?
I have made this bag before. I like it because there are a couple of ways to make it "new", plus with all of the scrappiness...it can always be unique. Here are the two other examples that I have made before, just in case you missed them the first time I posted them.
As always, a special thank you to Heidi and Bobbi for organizing the event. I am really glad that I participated.
