Yesterday I decided to stay true to my word and actually SEW TOGETHER the crazy-colored squares I purchased in my Pumpkins Gone Wild charm pack (see previous post). But before breaking out my long-forgotten sewing machine, I recruited my Resident Organizer, Sophie, to clear out my fabric-and-stuff cabinet and get my sewing box(es) in tip-top shape.
Oops, I forgot to tell her that there are needles stuck in just about everything (which is why I got her to do it).
When she was FINALLY FINISHED (hellllooooo, I'm waiting to QUILT!!!), I revved up the machine:
Oh heavens, I clearly forgot to clean the poor thing first (click on image to enlarge):
When Hobby Lobby opens tomorrow, I'm going to get some black pom fringe to sew around the edges. Won't that look terribly cute? I can't wait!! I remember back when I used to think that black pom fringe was the most hideous thing in the universe, but now that I'm starting to embrace my inner gaudy-girl, I'm loving the stuff!
Btw, as a favor to Sophie for cleaning out my sewing box and fabric-and-stuff cabinet, I promised her I'd show you all a preview of her Halloween costume, which she's verrry excited about:
Can you guess what she will be? :)
Next project: Bistro or bust!
