I love the new machine. The last one I had was 20 years old and only did about 5 stitches. This one does 120, plus monogramming! Its’ so quiet and runs so smoothly. But I have to say farewell to my old one in a kind way… It sewed 20 years of children’s clothes, curtains, decorations and even reupholstered a couch….twice!!! I’ve decided not to get rid of it but just store it away for now and maybe someday try to have it fixed. It was a good friend for a long time…insert tear here… :0)
I went today and purchased the fabric to start the third quilt (The owl quilt) I originally was going to hand dye most of the fabrics but with my time crunch I’m in now I decided to just buy the fabric as close to what I need as possible. I got very lucky and found some at Joann’s and some at the local quilting shop. The wood fabrics didn’t come out in the pictures as vibrant and high quality as they are in person but you will get the idea. I quickly sketched out the idea for the front panel and took a picture. Not the best drawing I have ever done but I did it in less than 2 min. (so no judging on the art!!) :0)
I’ve posted pictures of the finished shoe and purse quilt, the new sewing machine and the new stuff for quilt three so take a look and let me know what you think.
Back on track!!!!!
