I spent my weekend finishing up sewing projects and using up the rest of the toile fabric I had made the dinning room chair slip covers out of and the pillows for the cream couch in the front room.
This is a 18x18 pillow I made using the left over toile and what was left of Grandmas stitching that I had previously used for the pillow I had made out of drop cloth for our bedroom.
Then I decided to cover the ottoman in our bedroom, originally I was going to use the drop cloth fabric, but I didn't have enough and I did not want to run out to the hardware store to buy more, so I thought I would just use what I had. I am not sure if I like it or not.. since I really wanted to make the ottoman slip cover out of drop cloth. I think I'll have to make another slip cover with the drop cloth when I'm able to sew again.
Then I needed to finish up with a baby gift for my niece, she is having a baby boy who's name will be Logan in Dec.. This is a simple blanket made out of two yards of fleece fabric, this is a blanket I make a lot since all my little ones in our family enjoy cuddling up in them.
So are you wondering why I wanted to spend my "Whole" weekend sewing?, well I will be off my feet for a while recuperating from foot surgery. Yes indeed I will be sporting a pair of crutches for two months and wearing the most fashionable shoe.
My surgery will be on Nov. 24th. I will be off work for two months. No sewing or spinning yarn for me, but I will be doing a lot of hand stitching, knitting and crochet on the couch.
Gary and I went to the yarn store so I could stock up on projects, and I decided to make a afghan for my very first give a way, I am hoping to make my 100th post soon since I'll be off work and I will have more time to post. So stay tuned for my 100th post.
I also took a lot of photo's this weekend, so I could have something to post until I can get around to take pictures.
I wonder if this very chic shoe comes in "Red".
