Back in Sept I was asked to do some custom sewing for someone I don't know (friend of an acquaintance).
If you hang with me at all you are aware that my sewing anything has been ditched into the trash can much less simmering on the back burner.
The fabric (2.5 yards, of which a table runner and 10 cushions were requested) made its way to the basement where it has stared at me constantly reminding that I needed to do something with it. Yes I just should have said "NO". I have a hard time with NO unless its my children.
Avoidance behavior? YEP I was doing it.
And than the recipient e-mailed me. And I had to face those 2.5 yards.
Explaining that there wasn't enough material, we narrowed the request to 2 cushions and a runner. Simple enough right. Yeah..... NOT.
Sewing for someone is difficult enough. Sewing for someone you have never met........
Anyways, after 8 months of the monkey attached to my back IT IS DONE!!!!!!!!!! Can I have an Amen!
I have finishing touches to apply (Velcro, non-slip backing). But the cushions are made and work. The runner is complete and I have my life back. YIPPEE
Well, my family can't appreciate, but hopefully you can.
