Don't look too closely otherwise you'll see that my bird is unraveling at the head! Bird brains! AUGHHHH! I have wanted to stitch this little thing since I first saw it. Unfortunately, while turning this little bird right side out, I poked the turning tool (chop stick) right through the fabric. There is really no way to fix my poor bird. The fabric called for has a really loose weave. Being the sewer that I am, I did hear a little voice saying "iron on some featherweight interfacing". Did I do that???? Did I listen to that voice? NO! Of course not. I only listen to that voice when it says, "It's margarita time"! I should have listened. I'm not going to get crazy about it though. It didn't take long to stitch and I found a tighter weave fabric in my stash, so I'll give it another whirl. Of course, I didn't mention that it took me three times to stitch this darned thing right, I kept miscounting.
But I shall not complain. I'll just wait a little bit before trying it again. As my daughter would say, "Save the drama for your mama!" This is one of her favorite sayings and last week while in the mall, what do I see??? That's right - a shirt with the saying on it! Did I ever mention that my daughter is a drama queen? Yep, almost 12 years and the world is full of a lot of drama. You know how those 'tweens are!
Other than the mishap with my poor bird, the weekend was great and the weather even better! Hope everyone had a great weekend too!
