I’m getting a bit bored here, coughing on my couch. Except for Friday Night Sew In I have not spent much time by my machine. Still, some things are moving along nicely:
My Big Bag of Binding has got a new place to live, and is now the Big Box of Binding. Daughter wished for the Marimekko dishware for grandson for Christmas promising me the box if I got it for him. She sure knows how to work me:-)
My new sewing machine does not have an upright spool holder, so Deelybob has been resting. Instead I found my favourite jug in the cupboard. The spout is not good for pouring, so it does not get much use. It’s glass, so it’s sturdy. Hey – it’s the perfect cone holder; I put it behind the machine, and it works like a charm.
I have been putting together unlikely fabric combinations; loving the result and dreading to start quilting it. Does that ever happen to you – you like the top so much that you are afraid to ruin it by quilting?
Adding hand stitching to my Seeing Circles project; it was missing something.
I have started testing the free motion capabilities of the new machine on my little Japanese birdies. No ear piercing sounds; no problems; no worries; all good.
Finally, spending so much time on the couch I have (almost) finished the Funky Fowl and Kule Fugler patterns, and am making progress on the English version of Flower Bouquet. My plan was to sew another sample so I could get better pictures, but that’s not going to happen soon, so I’ll go with what I already have.
Now, I need to get out of the house already…
