Chicken Feathers?

Whoa! My workroom looks like someone has been plucking chickens! I've been cutting the linings for the golf shoe bag project, and the last batch is long-haired and white... what a mess!


This is a picture of my friend Joyce, who started this whole thing and me holding the last bag cover for the project. On the work table to the right, you can see a couple of pieces of fur lining, and ALL OVER MY BROWN CARPET are shreds of fur! Needless to say, once I am totally done (I'm thinking by Wednesday), the whole room is getting a thorough cleaning! Hard to believe that we've only been working on this project since April 24, and we should be completely done by the end of next week... 90 bags, 90 purse-sized tissue holders, 90 eyeglass cases, and 90 'cool collars' ... two weeks ahead of schedule! Woo-hoo! By my count, I've gone through close to 12 sewing machine needles and about 4 rotary blades, and countless bobbins-full of thread, and close to one cone of thread for the top of the machine. Oh, and over 60 yards of webbing for the zipper pulls and bag handles... good grief! I'm thinking I will enjoy a little kick-back time after this, and Joyce promises that lunch is on her! Oh, and for Evalyn too, who did all the zippers, and is responsible for attaching the linings to the bags... we BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!
