There really hasn't been too much sewing going on for me lately. Work is really getting in the way of my hobbies! I have been out of town for the past 2 weekends, thanks to job number 2 (scuba dive leader). I will also be out of town stuck in training for 8 hours a day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Definitely not looking forward to that. I will be drinking so much coffee.
Anyways, I finally assembled the Dresden plates into something useful. They are potholders! I kind of made them for Potholder Pass, but they definitely did not come out how I wanted them to, so I can share them without fear of my partner putting the pieces together. I believe the perfect home for these bad boys will be with my friends Heathur and Jake in Colorado.
Oh! Oh! When I was out scuba diving last weekend, we had 46 divers out with us. Since I was in charge of this diving event, I decided to make snacks. Apparently these are my typical diving snacks to bake. They are bacon cheddar scones and pecan sandies.
I am still trying to narrow down my 500+ GoPro photos into one manageable post of photos. Two of our divers even got engaged underwater and I filmed it!! How exciting!
I also finished the final block for 3x6 Quarter 1. I even managed to sneak away to the post office and get them mailed today! Score! This one is for Nicole.
Today I was naughty. I stopped by the Singer store to play with their long-arm quilter. I practiced my pebbles and stippling. Then I realized their Hemingworth thread was on clearance. They had it for $3.99 a spool! I have never used this particular type of thread, but all the samples looked nice. Does anyone have experience with it? I hope to try it out soon so that I can go buy all of it should I like it. Today I only bought a few colors that spoke to me. I have no idea why I bought neon colors. I never use neon colors! Oh well!
