It is a last minute rush around here the past couple of days. Those are the last of the mug rugs in the photo above. You know, I am thoroughly tired of making those things. They really are too much work for what they sell for. People like them though, so I keep producing them. I wonder if I can come up with an easier design that would go together quicker? Maybe do a simple machine applique in the center of a 6 1/2 inch square? Any ideas?
Here are four completed zippy bags, inside out. I just need to square off the bottoms, turn them right side out and sew on a yo yo decoration. Two more prepped and ready to sew at the top of the photo. These are always fun to make. Just a couple of hours to go and I can drop these off at the shop.
Then, we need to get quite serious about cleaning the house. Baby is terrified of the vacuum cleaner for some reason, and gets quite hysterical if I turn it on. So, that needs to be done when she isn't around. Another job I detest. I crave one of those light weight vacuums that suck everything in sight up into a bagless canister. What I do have is a clunky canister style vacuume that I lug around the house, whacking into the woodwork and tripping over. Actually forget I said I want a new vacuum. What I really want is a hunky guy to push it around the house while I watch from my chair.
More later. Gotta get to work. I will post a photo of my finished bags a bit later.
