It's All About Me

My photo
Old enough to know better, but at age 50 I started a second career as a Mixed Media Artist. Inspired by a friend who suggested I research Altered Art I found what I do, and what I need to feed my muse. I have been published* I have been purchased* I have been SOLD! at an exhibit* I have been invited to share and teach* I have been blessed that I have friends who "get it";

Thumb Saver

Over the weekend I was desiring to craft, sew, draw, paint, clock, whatever.

Since my thumb wasn't going to work well I was looking at making a nice hand warmer, wrist warmer, thumb warmer... something

Cutting into some fleece pull overs to reconstruct was nice, making a pattern was nice, trying to make the thumb cover work it self into the wrist part... horrid...

Gently working the very thick fleece, one seam only, carefully feeding that plush material the 3 inches thru the feed dogs, under the presser foot.

No fancy stitching, a nice LONG stitch length...

It took more than an hour to figure out HOW to have the thumb attached to the blank blank blank wrist part...

Save me from thinking any more this week, my brain fried..

Pictures to follow.. maybe...
