That is the question. I knew that attempting to clean and organize the sewing area during the holidays might be a disaster and it has been. My sewing has come to a complete stop unless I’m at someone else’s house. My mantel cover hasn’t been finished yet. In fact, I’m still piecing the ornaments. I had really wanted it to be finished by the first of December. Maybe I will find time this week. This isn’t a project to work on when you’re tired.
I do have other projects that I wanted to complete for the holidays except they are easy projects. I have the materials to make three new table clothes. All they need are hems. I know the pressing of the hems will take some time but the sewing should be quick and easy. Surely, I can press hems even if I’m tired in the evenings. The question that remains is whether is use a walking or a hemming foot. The seams are very long which tell me that the walking foot might be a better choice but the means the hems need to be completely pressed in rather than just the first turn. Do you have a preferred method of hemming? Here are pictures of the fabric I will use to make the table clothes:
I will try to remember to take finished project pictures.
I have been knitting up a storm. Not really completing anything just knitting and practicing techniques. Well, I guess I shouldn't say I have been knitting anything because I did start the sweater that I purchased all the materials for. It was a little difficult picking out the size and I did second guess myself on the size that I choose and almost pulled out all the work I have completed but didn't. The sweater has a lot of new techniques and I’m a bit terrified that I will not be able to accomplish it. I spent a lot of money on the materials for this so I’m hoping that I’m able to finish the project.
