Tiring

It has been very tiring for the past couple of days..

I have been covering shifts at work….very long hours ,I must say..

I have been trying  to take pictures with my camera  of my projects…

I will try to have them posted sometime this weekend…

I even have pictures of my cats trying to help..

So for the little rant…but….

My dear husband made dinner,went swimming, and cleaned the dog pen…acting like he is so tired….while our 10 year old daughter is wide awake… Guess who has to make sure she goes to sleep….not him…me …. guess who is the tired one and still goes to work..

Jacket # 4 -Getting there

As you can see …The jacket is getting there…..

In this set of pictures…I was sewing the sleeves to the arm holes…..

It was a big pain in the butt….

The fabric kept on slipping and sliding…..

I managed to get it done….

I am now working on putting the lining together….

Next is to finish ….sewing velcro and buttons to the fabric…..maybe shoulder pads…

My son is really enjoying this project and wants to make more….I might change up the pattern a little…and not use the chest piece….

Hopefully , a different pattern……

Kyle the Sewing Cat

This is Kyle….He has become my sewing buddy….

Yes, he is on my shoulder while I was sewing…

He would not stop…

He had to be apart of everything I did…

I was posting on my blog last night…Kyle had to be on my computer pressing buttons…

Then he had to follow me to my bedroom/sewing room…..

I am so got that I have my camera back….so I can show everyone ….what I have been doing…

My phone wasn’t taking any more storage….because I was using my phone to take pictures of my projects.

Jacket #3

As you can see this jacket has been giving us a very hard time….

I was putting the trim together before the sleeve was sewn together….

I never had so a hard time with a pattern before….It has been a challenge…

I am not backing down at all….

The one picture is the tension decided to act up….

Once I fixed it…it was working good…

Here my son trying on the parts of his jacket….Of course …he was being silly…

Changing of the Quilt

I can’t believe how this quilt was going to look….At first it was just going to be panels…

I changed the whole look of it ….It is starting to get bigger….My oldest daughter informed me that she wants it to be at least a queeen size or king….good thing …I am not even closely done with it…..I am piecing more and more of it together…..

I am looking on how I first wanted the quilt….I have all these panels to add to the rest of the quilt…I do have a plain black backing for it…it is 108 in wide fabric…

Cleaningroom

Remember when I posted about cleaning my sewing area….

As you can see…I wasn’t kidding….

You can see many of my different projects that I am working on….

You can see that it is looking better….

I found many bobbins and other thread…..

I also took a two hour nap….

For the past couple of days , I haven’t been getting the right amount of sleep…

Last night, I had such a bad migraine….I went to bed early…around 10 pm…

My bed time is around midnight, and I sleep well.
