Oh Boy! When it rains, it pours!

I've got more sewing on my plate than I know what to do with! Even better, I'm getting paid for some of them. Now the problem is time! I am a procrastinator, just call me Last Minute Mary.

Paid jobs have a due date of July 19th:

1 king pillow sham with trim. (1-2 hour project)

3 fabric trimmed hanging patio screens (your guess is as good as mine.) I've got the screens, but they need to be cut to size and I have to go buy fabric to trim with. I love the idea of the screens, but doing the math always stresses me out.

Personal sewing:

1 baby quilt for the niece (needs to be done by the 19th for the trip home to PA to meet her) she's scheduled to be delivered on the 17th.

1 stuffed frog in a tutu (due 14th for the baby shower) I've got a doll pattern to covert into a frog. Should be too hard, but it will take some time to do it.

I so need to light a fire under my own ass. I'll see how much I can get done this weekend. Then I will start panicking.

I have a little packet of birthday goodies for you (very much overdue from my birthday celebration) can you email me your address at raeshadrz at yahoo dot com? Thanks!!!

It's panic time. I only finished the pillow sham.

Joy said...

Oh how'd the sewing go?

Carrie said...

I didn't get to do any sewing on Saturday, I ran errands during the day and then I had the oportunity to spend evening with a friend who has cancer.

I wound up making the sham twice, as the first time I made it too big. It's done now, so I'm going to cut the screens tonight and hopefully piece them together. I still don't have the fabric to edge them with.

The frog is on hold until I can get to the fabric store, either tonight or tomorrow night.

I am completely jealous of your sewing skills. I have a sewing machine, but unfortunately I can't operate it. I know, I am totally lame.

Carrie said...

Sewing really isn't hard. It just takes common sense and practice.

Doesn't that always happen, you open yourself up for something, then WHAM, you get it!!

Good job!
