Sorry for all the sewing mentioned in the title, but since I have not really had the chance to sew I’m feeling a bit deprived. It was a very busy week for me. I helped out at my friend’s school with the beginning band kids, then was off to my new school subbing for a couple of days. During the evenings when I usually take some time to sew I’ve been even more busy. I play in a saxophone quartet which rehearses on Monday evenings and I leave the band room and head straight for the gym for teacher/parent volleyball (which is a riot). My friend Paula and I also enrolled ourselves into a Boot Camp which meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On the evenings I was free I was TOO SORE from the boot camp to even sit and sew. If I could sit it was a miracle and after shoulder day I couldn’t lift my arms to the table.
Friday, I came up with a brilliant idea of making a scissor case. I am one of those people who try and keep their supplies really nice so I usually keep them in their boxes or containers until I use them and then they go straight back into them when I am done. Well in their packages they don’t fit into any of the sewing boxes to bring your supplies to classes. I looked online for patterns but didn’t find any that fit my ideas of what I wanted so I decided to try and make it. After working on it for a couple of days I am sad to announce that they are not turning out AT ALL. I am not pleased with them at all. I can’t wrap my head around how to fix them and make them work. So I am starting again.
In the meantime I am starting on a kit that I have to make a needle holder. I’ll keep you posted.
