We are back from camping. What a lovely weekend.
Last week I was looking for a low brain wave activity, and eyeing some scraps, so I decided it was time to make zippered pouches. I used a production line method to construct them, and it worked fairly well….er…well maybe not so much. LOL! Can you spot the mistake?
After correcting the mistake I went about finishing the pouches. In my attempt to redo the problem child, I got the zipper tape twisted! Argh! But not to worry, I trim the zipper lengths anyway. So I cut the tail, took the pull off, and repositioned the tape. I didn’t take a photo of that debacle! This is the method I use to reattach the zipper head. I still need to put beaded pulls on them.
Here’s my pouch parade!
They are not very big, the largest is maybe 4″x5″.
Today’s plans are baby quilt blocks I need to piece together and quilting a charity quilt. I am going to try to quilt and piece a little each day, instead of devoting all my sewing time to one or the other. I am starting to have hip issues on my last natural hip, so I want to speak with my hip surgeon about the best practice for avoiding surgery a bit longer. I can’t say it’s been the increased stationary bike riding, or standing and quilting for long hours, plus enforced sitting while sewing, but I can’t say they aren’t contributing to it. Hopefully the Dr can help me determine the cause and a temporary fix. 4.5 years ago my surgery was a must do because the labrum was completely torn and it was absolute bone on bone. There was no alternative to surgery, even though the Dr felt I was too young for replacement. Quality of life was rock bottom, and I am so glad I had the surgery, but I am not looking forward to another surgery any time soon!
