Another beautiful day in the neighborhood. Blue skies, nice temps. We cleaned the living room today. Captain Cool worked some more cleaning the basement. The General and I went to vote today. The General had to be at work at 5 a.m. this morning because our church was used as a voting place. That wouldn't have been so bad, but, he didn't get home from work until 11:30 last night. I tried to keep things quiet and let him have a long nap between jobs today. Math, language arts, Awana, science, and reading out loud were all done today. We even got in a walk. Captain Cool had his finals in his community college class. He took pre-cal this semester. The teacher checked it while he was there. He got an A on the test and an A in the class.
I hemmed a pair of pants, a skirt, and a dress for a customer today. I also quilted the purse pieces. I learned something; do not put heavy stabilizer on first before quilting if you want it to have that puffy quilted look. Mine just looks like rows of stitching. I am going to finish this bag and do another one where I quilt it with the batting first and then put the stabilizer on. Some times I just don't think through projects. I need to put it on another color to take the pictures. The colors are not coming out to their correct hue on this background. Tomorrow I have to pick up some sewing from a blind lady I do work for. I hope to put the pieces together, make a handle and work on the lining. Tomorrow night I have to take the children to Awana so we will see how much I get done.
Sew Long for Now.
