Seeing Double 2nd Try....

I think you all know that I am a huge fan of Anita Goodesign.  My first try with "Seeing Double" went well for a first try, but I had to work out the kinks (my brain does not always follow the directions well).  I had a few mishaps along the way, but once completed I did have it down.  So....  I had to do it again just to make sure.  I found some wonderful fabric with a wine theme.  Grapes, corks and leaves.  Nice colors all together.  This turned out much better and I shaved quite a bit of time off by continually using two hoops the whole way through.  I even got the center, well uh, centered (nice concept). I had used a huge spool of thread (5000 yds and had lots letf) on the first one and I never realized how much thread these use up until doing this one.  I used a large spool of RA 1100 yds and ran out, so had to use something similar for the middle.  So, if you are doing this design, make sure you have enough.  Fortunately, I ran out at a place where I could switch the thread color without an issue.  Time to find some holiday fabric and do a theme on each side.  Oh, wait, I better finish some other stuff first!  I am looking forward to the long weekend and have a ton of sewing projects on my list.  First I have to get in my sewing room (not an easy task as it is crammed full of all my "needed" stuff.)  It needs a good re-organizing.  I doubt any of you can relate....  LOL!    My next update will be introducing a new member of my sewing family.  I first "met" her at the AG event here in Phoenix earlier this year.  It was love at first site (and layaway).  A few of you have already met her.  I'll get pictures this weekend, so stay tuned.  Happy Sewing!  Carole
