Look what I worked on last night until 4:30 am this morning...Ok, I didn't start on them til after 1:00 am....But that is how I get what I get done....When Luke doesn't have school the next day I pull all nighters alot of the time...I'm a total night owl and have been for all of my adult life...THANK GOODNESS I have a little boy that has ALWAYS slept late when he can...So he is totally like his mom in that way...It allows me to work with my needle....And most nights I stay up til 2:00 or 2:30....Then I get 5 hours sleep...Some days warrant a little nap time, but most days Luke doesn't nap...That is how I get things done....
So last night I worked on these...The design is a NOTFORGOTTEN FARM design by Lori....As soon as I saw her new design back in July I knew it was going to be my very first needle book...So i stitched it up....One in Lori's chosen colors and one in blues for myself...And then they sat from July til October....I was a bit intimidated in making one because i HATE sewing....But I quickly found out as I started on these last night that I enjoyed putting these together (except for the few times I had to use my seam ripper..lol)
So I sewed them up in the chosen fabrics I had decided on months ago...The brown in a reproduction civil war print and mine in a early 1800's fabric from an old quilt that was taken apart...I'm still not through with them...I'm going to add another patch on the inside for needles to go with the pocket and I need to add a button to the front so it can button close....Perfect to lay next to my x-stitching chair and when I travel...And I found that my little sewing book fits perfectly in the pocket....So what do you think????....THANKS Lori for a wonderful design!!!
Until next time~~hugs, Jen
