Look Who's Home!
Yep, my baby is home. Back from the spa, cleaned and spruced up and ready to work. And work she will, if I can stay home long enough!
Remember I said I was cutting up my repro 30's fabrics? Got 'em all cut. Now I need to sub-cut.
The two stacks of strips are over 5 inches high. The stack on the left will become 5" squares. The plan is to finish cutting while embroidering hubby's designs for his quilt, then start sewing things together with a vengeance. In about a week, my other machine will come home, and I'll be able to run them both. Won't I have fun.
Must tell you about my new shoes. They're called Z-Coil. They're not cheap. And they're not pretty, lol.
But having the ability to walk is priceless. They have a coil on the heel that absorbs 50% of the impact when you're walking.
And you can get covers for the coil, so they look like a regular heel. I had thought they were sloped inside, like wearing a heel, and my foot problems are on the ball of my foot. I didn't think they'd help at all. Boy was I wrong. I'm now walking without a limp, I can put my full weight on both feet, and there's no more burning. They're also helping my back. Praise God. I would love to shake the inventor's hand and kiss his ring.
No sewing for me tomorrow, I'm taking the boys out to help my aunt with re-decorating chores. Sad, isn't it? Get my baby home and I can't spend time with her! Enjoy your weekend, dear readers!
