 Late last night I changed my mind about what to sew next.

I've probably got enough Bowl Cosy's for now, so I'm going to make a couple of Fat Bottomed Girl Runners.

I've only made one before, and it got snapped up straight away:

ABOVE: I made this one in August last year, and it ended up going to Sharon in Taupo.  

I reckon a couple for my market might go down well.

So yeah, that's my job today.  Work on two of them.

Since going public again on here, I've had NO troll comments!  It's amazing. And maybe that's all I needed to get rid of them?  Go offline for a month?  Long may it last.

ABOVE:  I've spent 5 long hours to get to the point where I've got about an hour left to go before I can start stitching.

ABOVE: The thing that takes the most time is probably choosing the fabrics to use.  And this time I changed how I would position the Fat Ladies too.
This is a freakin' lot of work ... and now I just have to stop and have something to eat.

I'm starving!

8 pm:  I had a good afternoon sewing.  I'm nowhere near finished on either of them, so will continue working on them tomorrow.

Stew got home to a lovely Chicken salad I prepared for him.
I had toasted sandwiches for lunch and have now got heartburn!
Annoying.  No dinner for me.

Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. That runner is great! I like the greenery around the edge and the colorful stripes. I am so happy you don't have the trolls. Our son is doing his first craft show in a week. I imagine I will have to help him A LOT to get ready. It has been ages since we sold in person, since we started selling on our own website and Etsy.

  2. They must not have noticed you were back yet. That runner was so cute!

    You haven't said anything controversial to invite the trolls and a month isn't very long. I hope you haven't brought them back out of the woodwork!! Audrey
