Hearth, your pictures were SPOT ON, but I couldn't "see" it. Mom picked up the top and facing, and SHOWED me what you tried to say, and - I think I got it. I hope - on the way home we hit JoAnn's and..umm....I have fabric for 4 more tops now. :lol: Yup, they'll all the be same style, but different fabrics. I don't care - I LOVE this pattern, and I like the fabrics I bought, so it's all good.
Yesterday was a sewing day. I got the wall-hanging top done (except for the details on the last goat), I got the "everyday" placemats pin-basted to the quilted backing, and I unvented a sewing machine cover for my machine - I had a LOT of the quilted fabric left over (I knew I didn't need 2 yards of $12/yard fabric, but the sales girl told me 1.5 wouldn't be enough for 6 placemats. Ummm...it's 60" fabric - I'd'a had PLENTY. I still have roughly .5 yards left - so 1 yard would have been just enough for the placemats.) I'm hoping to get the final borders on the top tonight - but it may be tomorrow. Looks like rain - and if it DOES rain, I plan on running outside and DANCING in it.
I also got some fabric for shorts today...we'll see how THAT goes. It ought to be pretty easy - shorts are basically bloomers, after all - and I can bang those out all day long, with no pattern. This pattern is pretty basic - pull-ons, rather than button-fly, and simple cuffed legs.
Elul is coming up...and things are heating up, Earth-wise. This is going to get interesting, I think!
