Good morning! I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. We got a lot accomplished and endured a short sickness, nothing too earth-shaking.
I recently completed my Feathers quilt and G. is enjoying it but I still want to take some fun Colorado-esque pictures of to share on the blog. The weather hasn't cooperated when we've had the opportunity, but I will share soon. My thread collection increased significantly as I wanted a tone-on-tone look for free motion quilting the feathers. Very yummy sherbet-y colors, right?
My hexie pillow is coming along - I am not at the stage of sewing eight blossoms together. I love basting the hexies, sewing the blossoms, but putting them all together is proving tedious. Maybe I won't be attempting a Hexy MF quilt after all.
Last night, I began the Noodlehead Road Trip Case and have had lots of difficulty figuring out the pleated pockets. I even had my husband weigh in, to no avail. I am hoping to figure it out sometime today.
Having moved recently, I have been perusing Craigslist quite often. We've needed dressers, toy organizers, and other household items. But I have to admit that I have also been perusing long-arms and sergers too. All of the sergers in my budget were crummy brands with bad reviews but finally a cheaply-priced Husqvarna Huskylock 905 popped up. The lady lived about an hour away but actually commutes to the AFB that my husband works at. I waffled a little about purchasing it: the price was right and there are nothing but good reviews online, but I have to admit that the learning curve of a serger scares me a little. A new guild friend gave me wise advice, "When you really want or need a serger, you probably won't find as good a model for such a good price." The lady selling it kindly met with my husband at work and he brought it home on Friday. I will let you know how I like it.
Stay tuned for some finishes very soon!
