Before I sewed on Sunday, I got to visit two new fabric stores in Chicago - Vogue Fabrics and Rainbow Fabrics. It was fun to see stores with bolts and bolts of fabric to make clothing. I got a couple of yards at each store and all kinds of notions at Vogue. Then I came home and finished the potato bags, put a fork in them, they're done!
My regular machine no longer winds bobbins. I have had it fixed twice already for this. I have had issues with this function since I bought it. I asked for and will receive a new sewing machine for Christmas, mainly because I am so spoiled but also because my Elna is ten years old and losing functions. I am super excited about my new machine so I try not to think about it!
I will stitch this on the back by hand, it will probably take two nights of watching TV to get this done.
I thought about doing it by machine but it is small enough, it shouldn't take that long. I like this little quilt so I want to finish it up right.
Now I have to start on this week's presents, the cards are done and mailed. Boo! I love doing them, I am kindof sad they are finished. Don't judge me, we all have our quirks!
Tomorrow I want to see if I can get most of the new quilt top done, my goal is to have it on Gladys by Friday. Am I up to the challenge? Let's see!
Ready, set, sew!
