As I mentioned last post, I made quite a few of these while watching Netflix. I think I would like to take the stitched pieces to my chemo and radiation appointments and just concentrate on the whip stitching of the seams. This may change since I have #1 - no idea what I am doing yet and #2 find I am frequently wrong. (smile)
This is the pile of pieces I did last night. I'm not sure how many over what period of time but tonight I will pay more attention.. I am going to keep the sewn pieces only in this box. I stuck the other stuff in just for a photo op.
As you can see, I put the four magnets on the tin top and I am trying something new - tiny bulldog clips.
So far I have only photographed them but not tried to sew with them on. More about this "idea" next post.
This is the basket filled with pieces that I cut from another post. I put the "naked" plastic pieces in 2 Italian Ices cups. Above the cups is my thraed and a threaded needle. I also popped my tiny scissors into one of the Ices cups for easy location. I just kept the basket on my lap and learned two more lessons. Lesson 7- When you are sewing, you hands can't put food in your mouth. Good to know since I have to lose about 50 lbs. Lesson 8 - When you have a basket on your lap, it makes it MUCH more difficult to get up looking for food (smile).
I also realized, I wasn't sure how the pieces went together so I took a photo of the part of the book with the "answer". I will print this and keep it in the basket!!
