An attempt at Saturday night sewing

I say attempt because I just could not get going. My mom and I ran to my house to pick up my stuff and I was having the hardest time deciding what to work on. I grabbed the pillow cases, my yo-yo flag, my Little House on the Prairie Sampler and my fabric from the batik club that we joined at the Patched Works. I felt compelled to work on the pillow cases and after sewing the first step of about 4 of them I couldn’t force myself to continue.

I decided next to try some “no brainier” type sewing. I had about 6 yo-yo’s to make before I could assemble the last part of my Yo-Yo flag. I got through them and my flag was together in no time. Unfortunately though, I now have hundreds of little threads to snip from joining the yo-yo’s by machine. It’s pretty ugly since the majority of it is mono-filament thread. It looks awesome but I’m going to wait to post a picture of it until the threads are all gone. It will probably take me a few lunch breaks to do all of that snipping. There’s 273 yo-yo’s in that flag!

I want to know what a 'Little House on The Praire Sampler' is too. My favorite show in the whole wide world is Little House on The Prairie!
