Cramming it In
Cramming it In…
It’s nearly the end of my summer vacation so I’m cramming in all the fun sewing I can possibly manage. I’ve made quilts, table toppers, door stops, coasters, and more lately. The process is so therapeutic, especially now that I can go into the sanctuary of my sewing room and get ‘in the zone’. I listen to a book on CD from the library and just… create!
Naturally there are parts of the process that I don’t love as much as others. Pin basting is certainly one. I can’t do this in my sewing room since there isn’t enough floor space. So I move furniture in the family room and crawl around in there. It is back breaking but necessary.
The Cartwheels quilt needed some fun quilting and a cozy look, so I used just a simple curved stitch on my machine. I think it looks terrific.
Today after I changed my bobbin thread I didn’t get something quite in the right place and now, despite hours of fiddling around to see what the problem is, I have a troublesome clanking coming from my Bernina. Really, I have to spend the last few days of my vacation without a machine??? What the heck!? Probably just as well, my beloved machine needs its annual tune-up anyway and the weather is gorgeous and this will force me to get out and enjoy it.
Happy September everyone!
