Well, I have come to the end of my time here in Big Bear. Tomorrow I will be heading north to the Bay Area, where my family is anxiously awaiting my return! I have been fortunate to meet a lot of really great people while I have been here, and I won’t forget that. It was a great adventure for me, getting to see the lake, the mountains, and the desert area around here. This is a beautiful part of the world!
My last project was making a valance to hang in the shop. I drew up a sketch, made a pattern, and put it into action. I miscalculated a bit somewhere along the top and it came out a little wonky, but overall, it wasn’t too bad for my first shot at making window coverings from scratch.
My sewing machine couldn’t handle the fringe trim, so I hand sewed it.
I also got a couple shots of the project I did with the Accuquilt Go machine. Gena brought in a pair of drapes, which I made tab tops for, and then used the Accuquilt to cut out shapes of contrasting fabrics and ironed them on.
Thanks so much everyone! I had a great time, and I hope to return to Big Bear sometime soon.
