It's kind of sad to admit that I don't do many sewing projects just for fun to feather my own nest. But last week, I decided I was going to tackle this one somewhat silly project just because I wanted to!
Behold! My ugly, lying, worn out bathroom scale.
Stripped of the curling black mat material.
A cheerful fabric topped with the new, nifty, and easy to apply iron-on vinyl!
Wrapped around a piece of Peltex cut to shape. Peltex is an incredibly stiff interfacing.
A spritz of permanent spray adhesive (not the quilt basting variety) and I now have a pretty scale that will at least be easy on the eyes while it tells me something ugly!
And it felt so good to take on a project and finish it completely! That three finishes for me in the past week; Poured Out 2 has shipped off to the Sacred Threads Exhibit, Sherwood Forest Love has been given to its intended recipient, and this flowery scale.
Now I'm working on a commissioned piece that should be pretty easy to finish off quickly. I think I'm going to start focusing more on how good it feels to finish a project. Maybe it will have a more positive effect than to keep thinking of the huge pile of projects I need to tackle.
How about you? Do you struggle to finish projects or do you finish one before starting a new one?
