Enjoying it in the machine

Sigh of satisfaction!
I did it, I got that puppy on the longarm.  The back seems completely perfectly straight and on there in the exactly correct way.  Same with the front.  I ironed and clipped thread and did it all again.  What a relief to get it all pinned on and it seems just perfect.  It took a long time to get it to this point and so I want to just pause and enjoy it.  I haven't done anything wrong yet, it hasn't shifted yet, nothing has bunched up or been uncooperative.  Let's just enjoy it for a night.

Lest you think I didn't do anything wrong tonight, don't worry, I did.  I got a tunic top super cheap because the opening is awkward - too long and too open.  I knew that all it needed was a button.  So I finally got around to putting in the buttonhole and sure enough, it shifted and the buttonhole veers off to the left.  Rats!  Oh well, sewed on the button and really, who looks at a buttonhole when there is a button closed into it?

I picked up my drapery fabric for the bedroom and the new rods.  My daughter came over and let me take all her measurements for the maternity tops I am making her.  (Shhh, she hasn't said anything on Facebook yet but really, who reads this blog?)  I also have literally the fabric for 10 more quilts up in the sewing room.  I think I will find things to keep me busy this weekend plus I will start the machine quilting.

I will check back in on Halloween!  Have a great weekend.
