I worked a little each night this week on clamshells. I have over 200 in the works. The picture shows various stages of progress from pinning to trimming, then turning/pressing, and two sewn together to see what they will look like. It's going to be a long process, but I'm really enjoying the mindless sewing.
There's a foot for the Bernina that I might explore getting. It has a non-stick sole, which I think might make it move more smoothly over this fabric and serving on a curve. If anyone has used this type of foot, I'd love to hear your experience. Those darn feet are expensive!!
I went to Upland Sew yesterday in the downtown area. It was cold and pouring rain. When I turned to get to the downtown area, all of the streets were blocked off for the Christmas parade! I'll tell you, the rain didn't deter anyone from going to the parade. I luckily found a spot to park just a block away and, amazingly, had an umbrella in the car. It sure was fun walking to the store and seeing the parade, catching candy, and singing along with the Christmas carolers. Darn if it didn't put me in the Christmas mood!
There's one more project to work on before my Christmas holiday begins. I'm having my cup of coffee, and then I'm going to jump right in feet first and see what I can get accomplished today.
It was 32 at 3:30 this morning. Now it's 40 with an expected high of 53. I hope all of Penny's walks today are as short as the one at 3:30! She doesn't like being cold. She's such a weenie!! (And so is her Mommy!)
