Whew! This jacket was completed in the knick of time. I promised ‘the end of summer,’ which technically won’t be until September 22nd, but because I think that Labor Day is the official end of summer, Labor Day was my goal. I was on a mission to finish. And Hooray! I did it!
I usually keep a hand sewing project next to my comfy TV chair and work on it slowly without a concern or thought for time. It takes as long as it takes and I don’t pay attention to the clock or the day or even the month. I had zero idea how long it had taken me the first time to make this jacket, so it was a surprise to realize how many hours I had spent.
It was a while,….
But I’m on the other side now. Done! Such a good feeling.
Next up, a video. I’m going to be participating in the American Craft Council’s online craft show this October, ‘The American Craft Made Pop-Up Market.’ They sent out a request for a 30 second video about one of the pieces that will be available for sale.
They’re fun to make so we’re on it. Scarves do well online, so that’s my subject. All about a scarf in a 30 second video.
Wish us luck!
Happy Happy Happy Labor Day to you and all my wishes for a lovely Fall, when ever you decide that it begins.
