When I was trying to install the yet untried walking foot on my fairly new Janome sewing machine, I felt a lot like Lucy looks in this photo. With success, I felt confident I could actually do some simple straight line quilting; something I'd failed at with my old clunker of a Brother.I'm getting ready to make a scrappy strip quilt, and these were good practice. The quilt blocks use 6 strips, and my potholders used 4 strips. I hope I made all my mistakes with this small project.
I'm working on a small project. For many years Bob would paint a watercolor scene for us to use on our Christmas card. They were very nice, and we even had people collecting them.
(All quilted, ready to be trimmed then use the backing for the binding.)
When Bob's health took a turn for the worse, he stopped painting and still hasn't resumed. In spite of not receiving cards from us, several young families have continued to send us picture Christmas cards of their families. These are not relatives these are blog friends and bookseller friends.
I expressed to my daughter Sharon how much I appreciated receiving these photo Christmas Cards. She joked, why didn't I make them a fabric card. That was the comment that started this project. Instead of a fabric card I think I'll send each family some potholders or hot-pads.
May your bobbins always be full,
