I hope you all had a great start to the new year.
Can't say I did as my sewing machine broke down on New Year's day just when I was looking forward to a full week of sewing. DH reckons I have worn the motor out so it is on it's way back to the dealers for repair as I've only had it 14 months.
What to do in the meantime ?? Well I hot footed it up to my Mum's and borrowed a machine from her.
Even more basic than my machine but at least I was able to get sewing again.
I am making a tablerunner as a birthday gift for a friend....
Her living room has a lot of gey in it, so I hope this will go nicely.
It's not been much fun sewing on this machine and I really miss an extension table.
If I'm honest I've been pretty miserable but I have made a decision to save for a new machine. There is no way in the world I can afford the Sweet Sixteen, so I have set my sights on something a bit more realistic. I keep coming back to the Husqvarna Saphire 875 - it has a huge 10" space. Extremely appealing.
Still managed to do some pretty feathers in the border.
I also tried a slightly different flower this time - they have rounded petals.
. Rmember the continuous feather filler sample? I turned it into a little cushion .
Today I have the whole day to work on another quilt I've started. It involves lots of foundation piecing and applique. I'll show you that next time.
Thanks for stopping by.
