So I have been having laptop issues again, the second time in a month that it has been in the shop! I actually started writing this post that sounded much better then the stupid thing decided to shut down without any notice at all! It just went dead then started up again... I'm not happy with this.
Anyway I really don't like not communicating with my students for an extended period of time...
This down time I kept myself busy by making a bunch of throw pillows for my couches, Fabricland had a great sale on the pillow forms so I took advantage of it and used up a bunch of fabrics I had in my stash, even used some trim!
The other things I did were some home dec alterations for a very good client, don't usually take those on but made an exception in this case. The alterations consisted of making 2 bedskirts, one queen and one king size, lengthening a Roman shade I had made for her a few years ago (she changed location of the shade to a longer window), made a square pillow into a rectangle plus removed and replaced an elastic waistband on a skort.
Made a skirt to show the class on Thursday what is expected of them when they work on this assignment over the Holidays. It's from the old version of Book 2 with only one back vertical seam, the rest are circular that begin on one side of the back seam and end at the hem and eventually on the other side of the back seam! Clear as mud huh?!
Hopefully this will be the last time I have issues with this laptop...
Take care and stay safe
