My mission was to scrub the kitchen, mudroom and down stairs bathroom and then sew until I had to go to work at 12:30. I got a phone call from an old friend that I hadn't talked to in months. 45 minutes later, I was scrubbing. It cut into my sewing time, but I still enjoyed the humming of the machine.
In fact I used the old Nechhi machine in the basement. It was a gift to me from my mother in 1966. It still did just what I needed. One of the linemen had me do some sewing on a new pair of gloves he got. The gloves had long cuffs which he didn't like so he cut them off and asked if I could bind the edges. Day before yesterday I took care of the first pair, when I returned them he asked if I would mine doing another pair.
Linemen at my office are notorious for teasing. I just had to give them some fuel for their fire. So after I hemmed the edges together today, I searched my scraps for a nice piece of dainty lace to finish the edges off for him.
Aren't they cute?He will take a lot of ribbing over these! I put the lace on with big basting stitches because I know he will give them one big tug.
I made it to work ahead of schedule. It was decided to wait until tomorrow to give the gloves to Matt, that is until all the co-workers are present. I will keep you posted on the show.
Yesterday I bought this cabinet off of craigslist! (Thanks Cousin Mindy for the introduction).We will pick it up Saturday if it's not raining. (Forecast is a low of 7 degrees for Saturday, so it maybe snowing or sleeting, but I don't think rain is a possibility.) Pretty neat isn't it? It still has the original wavy glass in the doors, along with casters on the bottom.
Today I sold this one and will put the new one in it's place.
