At the sewing machine

Today,I have been working for several hours at the sewing machine.  I had pressed the hems and basted them too, during the baseball games this last week.
Today I buckled down and started sewing hems.  My machine is quite old so I opted to bast instead of pin the hems.  It just comes out better if I do.
Once I finished the light colored Bread Cloths, I realized that I didn't have any navy thread to do the dark ones.  So I went on to the Rugs since I did have orange  and black thread.
That went quite smoothly and in no time I was done with those!  I then went out to run some errands, and pick up some Navy thread.
 My stack just kept growing, and growing.  Here are the Bread Cloths and some of the Rugs.
I tried to do the Rep Weave Placemats on the machine, but it turned out horrible, so I will have to do that by hand tonight.
 10 Bread Cloths......
and 6 rugs finished, not too bad for a few hours work.  I will do a final press on the Bread Cloths and then lable them all and then on with the Baby Blankets, but this time I know that I am caught up on finish work.

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina

You are a great inspiration to me....I have handwovens that need to be finished, too. Maybe I'll buckle down next week and get that done.

I love finish-it-up days like that. I'd really like a couple of those looper rugs around my house, because I love the one I got from you last year, but Bella does, too!
