Treadling on Tuesday

It's Tuesday and I'm not treadling. I'm still feeling sick and I'm getting very Grinchy about all the sewing time I am missing out on. There are only two more sleeps until the next mystery clue comes out, and I haven't even finished the cutting for the previous step yet.

But even though I am not treadling, I love watching the Grinch treadle! 
Yes... the Grinch does his sewing on a treadle machine! And he makes his dog Max power the treadle while he sews!

wonder if I could do that with my new Granddog Max?!? Maybe I could bribe him with treats to get him to help me treadle? Not likely. His work ethic leaves a lot to be desired! LOL

And did you know that the Grinch actually sewed his own Santa suit without a pattern! A brilliant and creative sewer!

Snuggle with Max, get your rest and when feeling better you will enjoy treadling.

I hear you on the not feeling up to sewing and getting grouchy with all the lost sewing time. Hope you can snuggle with the dogs and settle in with a good movie or two until you feel better.

So sorry to hear you are still under the weather. That is a frustrating feeling. I always tell my husband when he asks how my day went, that I worked hard on a quilt and Max our schnauzer didn't do one thing to help. He does love to test out my quilts when I spread them on the floor, I just wish he could cut or piece, guess that is asking too much!

My cats have tried to help me treadle, until they realized I could not see them down there and I might get a paw or a tail! LOL
I hope you feel better soon! I'm trying to decide how I could use that picture! I love it!

My dog tells me that it is very hard work to lay there, being cute. Maybe Max has a better work ethic than you think. Hope you are up and treadling again soon.

Hi Kathy...Sorry you're still under the weather. I'm sure you'll be feeling better soon and then you can get back into the sewing room where you belong! Don't worry about clue #2 as it really goes pretty fast. Take care.

It is the pits being sick when you are too sick to sew! Can't you get Max to live up to his name? Rename him!! : )

I think I need to watch The Grinch with new eyes! Lol. I hope you feel better soon.

I always loved that part of the Grinch! Sorry you're out of commission :(

I hope you are feeling much better. Having the flu is no fun at all.

The Grinch has to be an all time favorite! Thanks for the giggle.
