Here's the question.
What can you do in an hour?
Today I did this:
I'm working (way in advance, I'd like to point out) on a project for July 4th.
I managed to get a pattern roughed out (so I can make another, neater version of this) and get this proto type sewn up (it's not closed up in the back). Of course, I need to ad a cute face and a sinister little flame, but I'd say I got a lot done in an hour (my lunch hour to be exact).
I also got a good start on the pattern for a different design. I would have kept working on it but I snapped the thread (I was doing a running stitch to make a ball shape) and got frustrated so had to put it aside. But I think the sizing I have is going to work.
I have a little free time now so I might work on sketches for the flame.
