Got a hot date this weekend ...








With my sewing machines ;) I have big plans for this weekend:


* Alix's bees DreamScape - DONE
* Teresa's California King sheet set
* Finish Virginia's 4 seasons tree blanket
* Terri's vehicles DreamScape - DONE
* Sheilagh's sky DreamScape - DONE
* I have 18 things to dye - DONE
* Mel's soccer DreamScape & gumballs fitted
* Rox's AI2 - DONE - and BedBugs
* Maddie's fitteds - 1 DONE
* Carolyn's DreamScape and BedBug
* Carley's Tri-Tones
* Hanna's BedBugs


Whew! Makes me tired just listing it all, lol! I have fabric prewashing right now and am off to the embroidery machine. Let's see how much I actually can accomplish this weekend! Wish me luck!




Saturday night update - 7 PM
* 1 finished - Rox's fall in the forest AI2
* Terri's 'Vroom! Vroom!" DreamScape is embroidered
* Sheilagh's sky DreamScape is embroidered
* Alix's bees DreamScape is embroidered
* Maddie's natural with multi hearts fitted is appliqued
* Mel's gumball machine is almost finished embroidering


That doesn't sound like much, considering it has been about 8 hours of work (and a trip to the fabric store in my pajamas for spray adhesive). Broken down in parts, it is 6 diapers snapped, 1 finished, 23 appliques sewn on, and 24 embroidery designs stitched out. There ... that sounds better ;)



And on to some pics!

Sunday night update:
I am not sure how time seems to go by agonizing slowly and way too fast at the same time. That is how this weekend has seemed! i managed to get Teresa's sheets almost finished today (just need elastic on the fitted sheet) and all my dyeing done, got my orders organized, balanced the books for February, but I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I had wanted to. I am exclusively working on Virginia's blanket now until that is finished, since I had wanted to get that out tomorrow. It will probably go out Tuesday now, since I still have a few hours left of work on it before I will let it go. Where does the time go???

I finished embroidering it this afternoon :) I will get some pics of what I have gotten done today up tonight, so it will just be a pic of the embroidery, but it should be ready to go out either Monday or Tuesday. Probably Monday. I'm thinking "Vroom! Vroom"!

The day to night DreamScape was a new thing for me - doing two different low water immersion dyes, one on front and one on back. It was a lot of fun to do!
