Fortunately, I was the only one home so Roo didn't have to see that. She's pretty terrified of fire so you can imagine how that might've been traumatic for her.
Now I'm the one who is traumatized, I'm without a machine to sew on! Mom still has Mack and even if he was here I'm not sure I could use him, he's that pretty. I've been occupying my time by cutting projects that are on the list and taking care of computer work. Dreaded computer work, I hate it. We ordered a new motor which should be here on Monday, YIPPEE!
Today I started working on putting together the ribbon fabric for that Victorian chaise I sanded and sealed last month. This is going to be so gorgeous.
I've made several projects using ribbon and have developed a technique to make my own fabric. First I arrange the ribbon however I happen to like it. I like to mix color and pattern and I'm not afraid to put something unexpected or just slightly off into the line up. If there's enough color involved, it will make sense in the long run.
Start by carefully applying a thin line of glue along the edge of the ribbon; press other ribbon in place making sure you are even all the way down. I'm working with about 9-10' of 39 different ribbons for this particular project. I am really happy with the way it's turning out so far!
So tell me, please...what's the coolest project you've worked on?
