Hello and Updates

Hello everyone. I have been an absent blogger; however I have been keeping up with everyone blogs. I read your postings couple times a week. Let's see where do I start

1. I added probable 100yds or more of fabric to my overloaded fabric stash.

2. My Janome sewing machine is acting up. The machine is nine years and 9 months old. I love the way it sews, so I will take it to the sewing machine doctor this week.

3. I can't figure out how to thread my 1929 Singer, the stitches are off and it sews so smooth and quiet. I bought a cheap Singer for $80.00 just so I could finish my project. Let me tell, I am going to give the machine away, I am not going to try to sell it. It is so light and after sewing on my Janome sewing on that cheap Martha Stewart Singer is like taking a step back into the dark ages. The Singer is great for a young kid who is just learning to sew. The machine is cheap plastic.

4. I have been watching quilt shows on line. I love to make scrap quilts.

5. I have been sewing, I think I finally figured out how to get some sewing done. It called " to hell with housework and cooking" and you know what I like it.

6. I had enough of my cheap Polaroid camera, I am tired of having to refocus the camera after taking a few pic. I bought Nikon digital camera. Pictures of sewing project will be shown on my next post.

More later....

Now that is dedication, buying a machine just to finish a project.
I have a 1960's sewing machine that I can not thread.. I am going to have to order the manual.

Can't wait to see what you have sewed.

Way to add to the stash!!!

Sounds like you've had a busy few weeks.

Sheila said...

Oh my 100 yds... awesome. Sorry your janome is acting up and hope you can get it fixed soon. Looking forward to pics using your new camera.

Rosie said...

I know what you mean about abandoning housework/cooking and sewing. I wish I could do that. OMG another 100 yards of fabric? Are you opening a fabric store? :-)

Andrea said...

Wow, 100 yards? Girl, you are something else. Are you coming into NYC the end of the month for the shopping day?

Carolyn said...

Wow, you are a serious fabric-lover! That is an awesome stash!
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my quilt!
