Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. My northern friends and family are gearing up for a second round of snow, thanks to the current storm system, here at the refuge we are getting mostly rain. Although, the weatherman is saying snow tomorrow is possible, I sincerely doubt it.
This week started out pretty strong for me, I really took the bull by the horns for the first three days. Then my back said, “Oh no my dear, that is too much, here is shooting pain and muscle spasms for you”. I completely lost Thursday & Friday; Saturday started out with good intentions but ended poorly.
Anyway, I hope to spend Sunday, today, working on the top border of my Into The Jungle SAL and will switch to the March segment of Fabulous Women In History on Monday. In the meantime, when I was feeling well this past Monday, I accomplished a major thing on my to-do list. I made grime guards for my 20” Millennium Frame rods. So I thought I’d share that today.
My sewing skills are very basic, but I am teaching myself to learn, via the amazing tutorials on YouTube, mainly so I can make stitching accessories, such as project bags, thread catchers, and grime guards. Previously, I have made grime guards for my Q-snaps, but since I am primarily using my Millennium Frame now, I wanted to make some guards for that as well.
While there are loads of amazing tutorials out there, I loosely followed the instructions from The Left Handed Stitcher’s tutorial. Her tutorial is really easy to follow, especially for the measurements, so I’ll just show you my process in general terms.
I think they turned out really well, next I will be making a set for my 30” rods. If you’d like more sewing tutorials, you can check out my playlist on YouTube for a variety of instructors and projects.
That’s all, for now, I hope you have a great week and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
also- if you stitch “in the ditch” you will keep the proper side of the stitching cleaner 🙂
I would be proud of that seam too. All I can do well is curtains – I refuse to pay for those!

Not familiar with the “in the ditch” term?
It’s where the rolls face up, so your wrist rests on the back of the fabric
