What do you call a 6 hour wait in an airport? Uninterrupted sewing time!
I was travelling in the Toronto area last week and thankfully, I brought some sewing with me. Everybody around me was plugged in to some sort of device or glued to their tablet. Me? sewing a binding. I wish there was more of us out there using their hands for something other than holding a smart phone...
Exhibit #1 : On the plane, sewing a binding (yes, I did go for the stripes!)
A Little Shopping...
One great benefit of going to Toronto was that I finally got to visit Sew Sisters. I was already familiar with their website and I was so pleased to visit their brick and mortar shop! I got to meet the owner, Judy, and Carol with whom I had been in touch regarding the giveaway I hosted a few weeks ago. The shop is located in a rather nondescript building but don't let this fool you! The inside is very nice, and filled with yummy fabrics! Konas, 1930s reproductions, batiks, novelty, and - yes - lots of modern fabrics too. I was on a budget, so I had to limit myself but I was pleased with my loot:
Lovely Fat Quarters:
Cute Button (probably the first button I bought since I was a teenager)
I had actually thought of naming my blog "I run with scissors", but discovered that something very similar was already taken. The button was hard to resist.
A Little Mending...
Ok, folks, I realize I am all over the place today, but I must end with a couple pictures of my most recent mending project. Having active boys means that I am forever trying to mend worn off knees. If you are going to be mending clothes, might as well make it fun:
