Friday Night Sew In Results
Posted by supermom on July 23, 2011
Last night, we’d just finished supper and I was about to head to the spare bedroom to settle in for FNSI when our neighbours from across the street stopped over for a visit. I got to show off our newly recovered lawn chair cushions and we spent a pleasant evening chatting on the front porch until it got dark.
By the time Dave and I came back into the house, I decided that rather than start on something new at 10 o’clock at night, I’d do some crochet.
I don’t know if you’ve been following my progress on my various projects on my Unfinished Projects list, but if you have, you know that I ran into a bit of a glitch when working on the crocheted beaded garland. In trying to use up what I had on hand, I ended up running out of the South Maid crochet cotton thread that I was using and then wasn’t able to find more locally. When I checked out ordering some on-line, the shipping would have cost more than the crochet thread itself.
So earlier this week, I made the tough decision and took apart the one and a half very long rows I had already completed and started over with a new ball of Aunt Lydia’s crochet cotton. Last night, I finished row two and made a start on row three.
Then tired, but not enough to go to sleep, I decided to cut out the paper pattern pieces for this vintage apron pattern.
This pattern was one of the treasures that I found in the bench seat that came with the Art Deco cabinet we bought for my Singer 15-91. It had the same awful smell as the cabinet did when we first brought it home, so it, along with other bits and bobs, has spent the past several weeks in a bag covered with kitty litter to absorb the odour. The kitty litter worked great!
That’s the sum total of my FNSI. No actual sewing, but progress on a UFO and a pattern prepped and ready to use. Not what I had planned but a very pleasant evening nonetheless.
