No, I didn't hang up flip flops. But apparently, Little Boy did.
I spent the morning blocking Gail. I'm sure I was quite a sight, kneeling on the bed in my nightgown, pinning away. I found this a lot easier to block than my last lace shawl. I think the pattern with center lines helped, plus I used my new lace blocking wires that I received for Christmas. I LOVE the way blocking alters the lace to the perfect shape. I feel so smart and accomplished!
Last week, I got a new sewing machine. Today, I made a valence for the front door. It's not quite as wide as it probably should be, but this is my first sewing project ever done without my mom nearby. (Somewhere, generations of Tellefsens and Jorgensens are breathing sighs of relief. I belong with them.)
