Slowly but surely Daddio is getting back to normal. His eyes got the all clear from the Doc and he finally has his new glasses.
We've got a lot to catch up on.
To celebrate his return to sewing, he bought a new potholder kit and a matching table runner that he saw in the new Connecting Threads catalog.
Before we got started on the new things, I shamed myself into helping him finish the quilt that has been on the design wall for what seems like forever. I just couldn't figure out how to put this thing together.
After looking at the directions, I realized we had been making it too hard. It was supposed to be random.
Things really started moving along once I remembered to square up the pieces before we tried joining them. Let's just say we got a lot of practice with a seam ripper until I figured this out.
We also have plans to finish this pillow cover. Even if we just add 2 yo-yos a day.
We may even finish off this taffy that's been sitting on the sewing table for over a year. It's good that things are getting back to normal.
