Imagine This

Okay, my camera chip is not working properly. In the camera I can view the photos I have taken. When I try to download on to my computer, they aren't there. I will have to wait until my hubby, a computer guru, is home to help me out.

Instead, imagine this...three pieces of Christmas fabric. All three fabrics are modern with a lime green, hot pink, red Christmas trees, snowflakes and dots. It is my fabric for the Christmas in July swap. I wanted to show you this fabric. It is definitely not your ordinary Christmas fabric but yet, when I saw it, it screamed, "Take a half yard each!". So, I did. :)

Imagine this...two Java Jackets or AKA cup cozy. I have made two, both lined with a contrasting fabric and in between the two fabrics is a thermal lining to keep your java hot.

I am hopeful that the camera chip issue will be corrected tonight and your imagination can experience reality.

On to other sewing:
I am cutting off two pair of jeans, one stained and the other shrunk, to make shorts for my son.

I am also cutting out more Java Jackets and hope to get those sewn and posted to my Artfire store.

I have a 5 luggage tags to make and a monogram applique for a laundry bag.

I need to complete my Christmas in July sewing.

I have multiple handbags and one messenger bag to cut out and sew.

In the process of all of this sewing, I need to glue the support leg on my old sewing desk and it needs a good coat of paint. I will hopefully do this tomorrow. We have been short on sunshine but tomorrow looks promising. Until then I will be sewing on the kitchen table.

What are you working on today? Do you have your own to-do list? Are you making progress or feel you are swimming upstream?

  1. Good grief - you're going to at that sewing machine for the next week with a list like that to get through. I'm very awed by your Christmas in July planning, I've never had the will power to get started in time to get a grand plan like that working for me.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each & every one.
