Working + no sewing = :-(

How come it's so hard to hem pants?

I've been hemming quite a few pants lately...I think if I do about 50 more I might actually be good at it.
I don't know how long it takes you to hem one pair of pants, but it takes me hours!

Trunk...continued and ending.

I had pretty much decided I wasn't going to work on this piece anymore because it wasn't directing me anywhere I liked.  After posting the first picture below and seeing a womans long, vest sweater that's all I could see every time I looked at it!  Blech!  So I was done!
But I took it to Cave Women monday night and asked for their opinions.  Some agreed to seeing the sweater; and some didn't agree, but instead saw female anatomy parts!
I had the inner and outer boarder the same dark fabric and they suggested painting the inner boarder lighter. So I did that with paint stiks.  I think in this photo (with flash) the paint stik color looks pinkish, but it didn't look like that when I was doing it.  So I'll wait and look at it in the daylight again tomorrow.  If it still looks pink to me then I'll adjust it.
After that I'm not working on it any more because I'm not getting anything out of it.
Plus I have to work on my Twin Cities on the Bias challenge...

"Name Tag"

I finally got around to making a name tag.
Ha ha...I only wrote "name tag" to keep Sharon Englund in the dark about a project Kathy Faust is making for Sharon to thank her for always hosting Cave Women in her cave.
We all put our names on this leaf shape.


This is an old project that I've been messing around with.  Now that I've taken a picture all I see is a headless, legless woman wearing a grey sweater!  I do not know I'm going to do to it next, but it's not done yet.

Binding I put on Theresa's Quilt

I put binding on the 2nd of Theresa's quilts.

She made the quilt.  And it really is a lot straighter than it looks, clinging to my design sewing room isn't big enough to set up a tripod so I can get up the ladder and straighten it out.

Ouradnik Quilt

I haven't been posting because there's something wrong with my camera, but I've been sewing on this quilt top.  It's all done, but too big for the design wall so the top is folded over and it's not ironed yet.
Now I have to get it basted so I can start quilting on it.
