While having a lovely dinner with my husband's cousins last night, I heard one of the most "reckless" sewing moments ever, so I had to share it.
Maria found a beautiful large area rug at a garage sale, but the edges were frayed and the fringe was worn. However, that was nothing that she and her seamstress extraordinaire mother-in-law (my husband's aunt, Laureen) couldn't tackle. They put a sewing machine on a creeper (those things mechanics use to roll themselves under cars) and sewed bias tape around the edge! I can just imagine the two of them pushing this sewing machine around the rug, working together to keep perfect tension and speed.
It's a good reminder that "use as directed" is not always the way to go when it comes to our tools.
Have a great week!
PS - Trying to convince cousin Nick to write a post for us on his paintings using ink from color laser toner cartridges. Cross your fingers...I can't wait to learn more about this!
