I have done a small bit of very simple basic sewing!
My cousin-in-law and I got together and had a few hours of a private mini sewing retreat. We made fabric boxes. But that was all it took to get me into the sewing mood again.
My daughter has a fetish for nail art. Her nail polish collection can rival any store display. It really is fun. She normally puts down an old towel or just paper towels to protect her table surface from any mishaps with those oh-so-pretty little bottles of color. When I saw this fabric, I could not resist making her a fun surface to work on.
Personally I think if she gets some polish smudges on the mat it will only add character.
This was only the beginning to more sewing of a few more small pieces that are still being
worked on played with. For me, sewing is play, never work.
