In The Sewing Room


I spent some lovely time in the sewing room yesterday...trying out my free-motion abilities with the new Viking Sapphire. Obviously, this is a bit over-quilted for a lowly potholder, but I sure did have fun!

And after weeks of Serging Ahead Towards Christmas and sewing 6 dozen cloth napkins, 3 aprons, 8 potholders, 3 tea caddy's and so forth and so on with the old machine that could barely hold a seam...this is a dream.

Holiday Happenings in My Happiness Haven have changed dramatically, now that I have a sewing machine that can sew decent seams and I have been rediscovering my love of meander stitching. I have been having such fun free-motioning like I actually thought I knew what I was doing... and then turning it over and finding a perfect bobbin stitch side, too!

And best of all, the owner of the old worn-out, burned hot pads (who gave so many new ones to others) is now the proud owner of 1 new one, herself, and the promise of more to come!

W00t, w00t !
