Wow, what a week it has been. Let me see what I have gotten done, Monday started out by pressing 100 HST's again, and getting them chain stitched into 4 rows of 5, so I have 5 more blocks waiting for them to be attached. Then I quilted The lil Lion quilt. Got the binding all done.
Tuesday I had a migraine, so no sewing for me. Then on Wednesday I embroidered all 20 of my friends shirts, needed his name on them. Whew glad that is done and off the list. The machine ate the last shirt.....dang it. Good thing it was the last one and not the first one, otherwise I wouldn't have kept trying. Made these Cinnamon Crumb Cake Muffins for dessert Saturday, MMMMM they are good too.
Now it is finally Sunday my super sewing day of the week. I started out by doing another 100 HST's so now there is only 280 more left to go, woo hoo past the half way point. Sew them on the respected blocks and I can start piecing the top of RRCB together, FINALLY!!!! Doesn't look like it will be put together by my Bday, but it is getting there. :D
I went back to working on my 2 rows of Rockin Row Robin, after about 6 hours, my machine started throwing tantrums. GO 3 stitches and it would thread lock underneath. For no apparent reason. Everything was the same as it was for the past 20 minutes or so. So I unthreaded it, still not working. Took out the bobbin and unthreaded it, still not working. Put on a new needle, still nothing. Took the machine apart and cleaned it out, rethreaded it, put the bobbin back in, and it STILL did it. URgghhhhh.
So I got out the ol Kenmore machine. WOW, what a difference!! There is a lot of things I actually liked better, and some I didn't. First off, see the left side of this foot, how it is going UNDER the seam allowance, that is on the good machine, drives me nuts.............
What have you been up to?? Know of any good QAL's going on right now. My table is almost cleared off, so I need to find a few more to work on. Still have lots of scraps and stash to use up before the end of the year. Resolutions.......still sticking with mine!!!
