Today, I was committed to spending all day in the sewing room. Determined to get this pattern done, I knew I had to buckle down and not get distracted. Due to the fibromyalgia, it really takes it out of me to leave the house - not just the leaving, but all the prep time [getting dressed, drying hair, etc]. By the time I come home, I'm tired and don't feel like sewing. So, NO plans to leave home today meant a good sewing day, right?
First shot at applique, and the glue won't melt on my fusible. I shake the iron. I turn up the heat. I give it my best "I'm the mom, I'm in charge and you're in trouble" look. I hold the iron on there long enough to scorch it. Nothing. Guess what? I have to leave the house and go buy a new iron.
End of sewing.
But. It was a gorgeous day, although a bit humid [100%]. I picked up my mom and we went off with the sunroof and all the windows open. T-shirt weather. I ended up being glad that I got to leave the house!
Would you like a peek at the pattern? This is just a corner.......
Tomorrow is storms all day. Excellent sewing weather, provided we don't lose power!
