These are some of the squares that I have cut out and I am working on an arrangement (2 sided). Let's just say after midnight is not the time to be assessing for placement! I am almost done and I will post a picture of the final project.
While hubby was in the hospital I have to say that I did a little retail therapy to reduce the stress. I tried to be cautious with money so I hit Value Village between visiting hours. Some times they have fabric or other sewing gadgets. This particular day I got really lucky....
This is a 1968 Kenmore. It is beautiful and the machine itself is in pristine condition. I took it in for servicing and a cleaning and it purrs like a kitten! Just straight stitch and zig zag but the feed dogs drop with the turn of a button and I found a free motion foot that fits it so I can practice free motion quilting on it easily. I am so excited about this because it was only $5.99! Technically I bought it for Bean because his sewing machine is a little off balance since he sewed through his finger. This one is so smooth he is not scared of it at all and besides, it is green, his favourite colour.
Well, I better get back to that quilt or my granddaughter is going to be an adult before she gets it!
