At last....

For one reason or another I have not sewn a stitch in several days...the other night I sat and sewed one line.  Just to be able to say I touched my machine.  But that doesn't really count.

But today, I worked towards that end.  I had laundry to do.  And so while in the basement doing it, I vacuumed down there.  Then I cut my strips and also dug out a few more fabrics to use to cut 4½ squares.  And while I was doing this, Roger ran to the store, came home and fixed us hamburgers and fried taters!  YUM

After eating, I ironed my fabrics and cut the 4½ inch squares, and by the time I sewed them to the 2¼ inch strips the first time the sun had gone down.  So I cut them apart and will square up the ends tomorrow.  I don't have good lighting in there to do this cutting stage...but am glad to have had a few minutes with my machine.
And with these waiting for me, I know I will work more tomorrow.

Can't wait to see what you are making...I haven't spent a lot of time in the sewing room either but decided to make an Xmas table runner for a friend so I better get my rear in motion.

Looking forward to seeing what you are up to. I don't always get to my sewing either but when I do I work many hours and lose track of the time. Blessings xo

Geese, gal...you have a REAL sewing machine. I have 2 old Brothers that I got off of Overstock. One is supposed to be a quilting machine (hahahaha) and the other an embroidery one which I cannot figure out how to use. The auto threaders don’t work so I STRUGGLE to thread my needles. I used the embroidery one...it works a little bit better than the other one. So glad to see you bit the bullet and started. Looks like you are making some headway with the tedious part. Keep it up.

Can't wait to see what you're making. When I don't get in my sewing room I go through withdrawal.
