Creature Comforts workday

Yesterday the lovely and talented actress and comedienne Sarah Barnhardt of The Dueling Butter Knives virtual comedy blog joined me and my CSE (Chief Sorting Executive) Holly during our workday for Creature Comforts. We had a great time, well...cutting up!

Thanks Sarah, for helping get the word out! You are now a rotary cutting expert. :)

A new class has started with New Leash on Life and I'm behind on production! My goal is to get 5 beds to them ASAP. The chopping-fabric-by-hand-thing is quite time consuming and slowing me down. I know they make industrial fabric shredders but that's not financially feasible, and I've already tried using my paper shredder. That didn't work! Embossed the fabric, which might come in handy at some point for an art quilt, but it was no help for the task at hand. So, if any of you out there have ideas, I'm listening!

A special thanks to Sew Original for hosting this first open workday and being a scrap collection center, to Shelby, the most beautiful Shih Tzu ever, for modeling the pet beds, and a HUGE thanks to my bee-mates from Miss Bee Havin for having not one but TWO chopping parties for this project so far!

The next workday is scheduled for April 15, 10-12:00 at Sewingly Yours in Lewisville. It's tax deadline day...bring your rotary cutter and mat and take out your frustrations! Or, celebrate, if you happen to be getting a refund! :)

Yesterday was great fun! Shelby is very full of herself now with her new celebrity status!
