Life ramblings and the journey through adoption.
if you get something cute, homemade, and obviously from a sewing machine this holiday season, you'll know who it's from!
Sweet! So cute and pretty. Hope you have hours and hours of fun crafting and sewing with it.
A bouncing baby Elna! Congrats, and many happy times!
Yay!! So, what have you made so far?
so far, I've tried out all of the stitches, made black and red bobbins, and started a "tester quilt." - I'm cutting out 4 inch squares and sewing them together. What I am realizing, however, is that I need a "surer" method for cutting out my squares, as they aren't "exactly" even, so not going together perfectly.... But just fine for the tester quilt, which will probably become a pillow.I bought some quilt squares from Ebay for 5 bucks, so that should go smoother. I will have MUCh fun over the next few weekends!
Sounds like you need a rotary cutter, mat, and ruler. You can find those at any sewing center or some craft shops. Also, you might be able to find some quilt kits, which have pre-cut pieces, and that might help get you started.
Shelli - We don't know one another, however I follow your story. But, as a fellow Jew who celebrates Chanukah. Wasn't this supposed to be a Chanukah gift fron Narda? LOL - I think you still have about 19 more days until you should be using this most fabulous machine. Julie also on GL Parentswww.julieandbo.com
hee - YES, it IS a Chanukah prezzie from Narda, but now everyone can have homemmade Chanukah gifties, too! :)(Besides, we'll both be on the West Coast for the "challah-days", so we'll be doing the gift exchange a wee early - and in this case a LOT early!) :)
Wow, Im jealous! haha, no really that looks like a nice machine! Grats on getting such a lovely workhorse.
congrats!! you will love it! i saw that picture on flickr of your kitty under a quilt and thought HOT DAMN WOMAN YOU ARE ALREADY QUILTING!!!! i was a bit off, but hot damn! you are on your way! (yes on the rotary cutter/mat/ruler- it will change your life!)
hah - I WISH I had made that quilt! :) Naw, I'm just getting started. Just squares at this point, but by the time our fictional child gets into college, they'll have AWESOME handmade quilts to bring from home!
Congrats on the new addition. It is very swank looking!
