Mr. Aitch and I are stuck on the interstate. Two hours so far. 😬
My fellow blogger, Salpal1, made some curtains and I commented on the travel theme. Mr. Aitch and I just got a new GPS and I thought a travel-themed fabric would be great to sew up a case for it. So Salpal sent me some of her leftover fabric.
…no West Virginia!
The inside…Then I decided to make another cover/case for the window attachment and cord and have it large enough so everything would fit inside for when we want to remove it all from the car and keep everything all together. I adapted the size of this pattern and made it a bit smaller. I didn’t have enough of the Route 66 Fabric so I pieced together some complementary fabric to make it large enough.
Um, one side.
Thank you, Salpal, for the fabric scraps. I love it and had fun making it.
Everyone else is jumping on the New Year’s bandwagon, so why not join them?
2016 included more travel than I’ve done in any other year, home improvements, lots of sewing and knitting and many, many other things not blogged about.
2017 will be the year to finally get my house organized and updated with new carpeting (hopefully), paint rooms that have not seen a paintbrush since we first painted twenty-plus years ago, travel, revamp the staircase, and knit and sew more for others.
Also on the list is to reupholster six, count ’em six, chairs…four of which will go to Colorado.
I want to pick up my calligraphy pen again and make cards and envelopes exciting again.
On a personal note I will work toward becoming more positive and less negative, clean up my vocabulary/mouth, give more of myself to others, exercise more, eat less and get rid of 40 pounds of fat.
What are your hopes and dreams for the 365 days?
