An update on company first. Our friend from outside the Atlantic Bubble decided to postpone her trip till Covid-19 dies down. Our house is not a good place for quarantine. It’s too small and the upstairs is open to the downstairs with no door between.
In sewing news I’ve finished on sewing the face masks. I just have to put the filters inside.
I also sewed the binding for my trip-around-the-world quilt. My sewing machine became jammed while I was attaching it. All sewing has stopped. This time I really do have to take my machine in for cleaning and repairs.
I have my jeans cut and pinned, but I’ve yet to hem them.
I’ve yet to appliqué the moose on my nephew’s cushion cover.
In rug hooking news, I hooked some on “Autumn”. I’m working on the words in the piece.
I ordered a “new” Red Dot sample from Kevin LeMoine of Punch Needle Rug Hooking in New Brunswick and it arrived. I tried it out and it’s almost exactly like the old Red Dot I used to use! I’m put in an order quick like. I love the thin Red Dot for transferring patterns!
What’s up this week? I’ll be hooking and entertaining company. I’m taking part in Karen Miller’s Rug Hooking Clinic today. Plus an online hook-in on Thursday.
Plus I’ll be remembering Grampy and all the other war veterans on Remembrance Day. May those who didn’t make it home rest in peace, and those who return find peace.
I’ve been reading in the news that the Poppy campaign by the Canadian Legion is not doing too well this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. The money from the poppy campaign goes to helping veterans and their families. I encourage everyone to get out there and support the poppy campaign.
If you’ve been reading, thanks! Have a great week!
