Finished with this "experiment" this week; my first time sewing and cutting a weaving.
The fringe didn't turn out like I had planned, but I think it looks pretty good like it is.
It was a lot harder than I anticipated sewing a seam on something this thick~ I decreased my presser foot pressure but it still wouldn't go through. Finally I lowered the feed dogs and just started "pushing" it through my machine and it seemed to work.
I'm already planning my next weaving project,
and it probably won't include any sewing.
We're finally having fall temperatures here... it was 34 this morning, and a fire felt awfully good to knock the chill off.
Tug has figured this out, too and wouldn't move long enough for me to open the stove door to put more wood inside.
Also, I turned 50 last weekend...
The years have flown by so fast it's still hard to believe...
but I'm just thankful to have made it this far!
I'm off to put a loaf of bread in my bread machine... I sure don't need to eat it but I make it because I love the way the house smells. (Yeah, right!)
