After a busy time of butchering and stacks of dirty pans,pots, knives,and grinder parts, I was more than ready to wipe the kitchen clean and step out of it.
As I step into the sewing room even my machine greeted me warmly ( sometimes if I ignore her because of laziness she gets an attitude) she ran smoothly all week for me.😄
First I finished up my mother in laws top, and the other siblings of hubby’s want to send it to a long arm quilter so as to have it done by her birthday in May. As much as I would like to hand quilt it, I agree that it needs to get to her so she can enjoy it longer.
The next thing done didn’t take long,and will make a nice light quilt … Maybe a picnic quilt for a baby to lay on.
Then another quick one, it is a youth bed size.
Next quilt will not be a quick one. I wanted to make something with hearts in it…
I had some wrapping paper that you would put in a gift bag that wasn’t nice enough to use any more so I decided to use it up. I pulled out the embroidery machine, oiled it up , and being to make 72 blocks.
First I cut my blocks out to the right size , then smoothed out the wrapping paper as best I could.
Then glued the block to the paper. The glue was applied to the block’s outside edges. Put into the hoop
Although the fabric isn’t stuck out all around the hoop like the paper ,glueing it keeps it tight so that is kinda of sounds like a drum when you tap on it. It stitches nice this way.
I have it all laid out ready to sew together.
I love it when hubby calls me when he is out of town on business… But this phone had a few complications.😳😄
Have a lovely week friends! Deb
