An Hour To Sew

10 Nov

I miss sewing, There is a sewing group here that has a monthly swap. Most of the other ladies are quilters, so I’ve always been hesitant to make anything because I don’t quilt. Last time I decided to crochet the candle mats we were swapping. I thought it turned out pretty cute. 01f8f68815fe6883555920ea5b6bb9a7af5037e743

This time we were swapping table runners. I had every intention of making a runner, but I just couldn’t make my mind up on the style. First I thought I’d just do a simple runner with a pleated or ruffled edge. Then I thought I’d cut out several large leaves out of different colors and sew them all together. Then I thought I’d do some kind of double sided runner with fall colors on one side and Christmas colors on the other. I had all these ideas, but the Halloween sewing was taking more out of me than I expected, so I was really close to simply not bring a runner and just coming to visit and eat the Thanksgiving potluck food (which was AWESOME by the way). At the last minute I decided to just go for it. With a little over an hour to work with I surprised myself and whipped up a simple table runner with some fabric I had on hand.

It’s simple, but I like how it turned out and it felt really good to sew something simple that came out the way I wanted it. Making the dragon costumes weren’t as enjoyable as I had hopped. Maybe it was because I was stressed about getting it all done, maybe it was because I was working with knit for almost the first time and it wasn’t working with me the way I wanted. I’m not sure what it was, but It was simple and relaxing to work on a quick project while Missy was at school and Penny was asleep.
