But I have solved this little dilemma and quite simply. I just get up an hour earlier for work-at 4:00 instead of 5:00. I am really at my best in the morning. I am usually ready to leave my house at 6:00 (breakfasted, dressed, etc.), so I spend the last hour sewing. One hour every morning equals 5 hours by Friday. Saturday and Sunday are spent in finishing and preparation for the next week. Don't know why I didn't figure this out earlier! It's been working out really well!
I am sure you remember this one. Started it in one corner many years ago and it is finally finshed. I have a number of other large crewel projects to finish but will probably not start on any more until the weather cools because they are worked in wool thread. It measures 20" by 18".
This next one was picked up at a flea market. It was about 3/4 done and all the threads and instructions were with it. It is a Jacobean design, a favored subject for me. The kit was for a 14 x14 pillow so it will fit in with the other pillow tops I have.
Here is a really tiny one worked in thread. It measures 6"x5". The colors and stitches were my choice.
I don't know if you remember the Poodle transfers but I finally got those finished. They are intended for a purple/pink quilt for my niece's little girl. I think they turned out rather cute and I see them as pictures in a frame. I am still mulling over the settings.
Ok, so that finishes up the handwork. Next post I will show you a few smaller sewing projects.
