I learned something new-don't cut your bias too skinny! LOL
I came in and grabbed a drink and sat down for a few minutes with a book and my booklet of recipes that are the most used by me because they are vegetarian and because they require the most common recipes that I have on hand at the time. About that time -the guys returned home. They talked and chit-chatted for a while and his brother left and headed to the kitchen while I had some energy. I had some leftover beans so I used a new recipe to make some veggie patties from them and then stick them in the freezer. Next I worked on an egg custard and my last accomplishment was a lentil soup. DH turned his nose up at it -but he ate it anyway.
I cleaned up my mess and we ate a bowl of soup and cleaned up more mess and I headed to the sewing room! FINALLY! By now I had forgotten where I had stashed my mug rug and after some fumbling around I discovered its hiding place.
Then Thanks to Chris from Diet Coke Rocks I googled joining bias strips and found a video of how to do it , since my wee brain needed some HELP! I know I would never have tackled this part of the project if Lynne had not walked me through it before -but it just would not stay in my brain for when I needed it.
Thanks to the inspiration I was able to pull that off And then work on attaching it to the Mug Rug -WHERE- I then learned my next mistake was cutting it too narrow.! That definitely was a big mistake, but I was already in the process so I went ahead with it the best I could.
I treasure each of my gifts from my beloved friends, Like my little angel from Maria on Life On The Block -And- my little bird that hangs in my window from Sue at Charlotte's Cottage and my blue purse from Chris at Diet Coke Rocks and last but not least the cutest little red owl by Linda at So Many Projects So Little Time!
When ever life seems to be too much at the time I know it will pass, but I like to help it along by treasuring all of my friends that had added so very much to my life. Thank you So very much -each and everyone one of you.
Hugs to all! : )
