Two new placemats for mom – she loves the color blue. I have never been a great fan and my stash is pretty pathetic. Guess we all know how to remedy that problem! Hello Hawthorne Threads …The little Friedlander shirts are calling to me. Make more, make more …Blocks for my Hive – again, I am seriously light on the blues.Auditioning blocks for a wedding quilt – now THERE’S a blue that I can get behind! Pearl Bracelets continues to be a go-to fabric for me.
I’ve posted pictures of my amazing 40+ year old Bernina Record. I had to get it out last week because my 180 was back in the repair shop. Something terrible happened. The Buffalo, otherwise known as my golden retriever, ran under my sewing table, got caught in the cords and took the machine with him. All the way down the hall.
I am emotionally connected to that machine in ways that I cannot describe. It knows things about me that no other person (or machine) could possibly know. I literally have been GRIEVING its demise. But gone it is, as the people I trust to repair called and gave me the bad news. So I did what any good quilter would do.
I ordered a Juki 2010Q. And I feel a little bit better.
