I have been a little bit busy as have many other people I dare say. Well, my sewing machine has arrived back but due to the high temperatures (around 37°C and 42°C) I haven’t used it yet. The lovely people at the sewing machine centre told me it was a motor problem and it was replaced at no cost for me as the sewing machine was under warranty (a whole 5 years warranty!!!!).
Although I have not done any machine sewing, I have been doing some hand sewing. I decided that I need to finish some items that I have, well lets just say it, put aside when something new came along. I am currently up to block 4 of Berries and Birds by Gail Pan Designs. I decided to do something different. I have only done the applique blocks only with the intention of going back and complete each block completely. By photocopying out the patterns and laminating them, I have quickly developed my templates allowing for easy tracing and cutting out.
I have also been doing a stitchery which is preprinted. Its been a bit of a challenge due to the mistake in it. I am trying to incorporate a way to hide the fault in it. I think I have achieved it. The quilt is called The Street by Smee Designs. What do you think so far???
I am still doing Cornelian by Hugs ‘n’ Kisses and have already brought more material to make a second one. The quilt that I keep in my work bag is called Christmas Magic by Gail Pan Designs and I am just completing the stitchery before I do the sewing up part.
Since my sewing machine is back, and I have a few days off, I have no excuse but to get my machine out and start finishing the baby quilts…
Well, I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and a Safe New Years….
