The fabric was awful to cut. It was only two piece to make the skirt, but they ended up being quite different in size. A battle with the sewing machine began and after a little trim here and there and I finally made the skirt. I actually made two. The girls love them.
The sewing machine was put back into closet!
I've been weaving more. About a month ago I decided to do a project as big as my loom would hold. It's been kind of slow. I don't spend nearly as much time on it as I could. I have one little complaint, though. My bobbin's are small and the project is large. I go through a lot of thread very quickly. I wind three bobbins at a time. It's really cool looking, though.
The loom, fully warped.
See the little white bobbin? It doesn't hold much thread.
The underside of the loom so you can see the pattern
At the bottom of the picture, you get a glimpse of the
underside of the weaving. It looks just as good, maybe better.
Last night I pulled out my cross stitching. I haven't done any in a very long time. Each of my children have a beautiful, elaborate Christmas stocking that I cross stitched. Peanut is three and this year will be her 4th Christmas. Her stocking isn't even halfway done.
I've got a couple of months. Maybe I can finish it for her this year..... maybe.
