Some Sewing Happened!

For the past 2 days I have actually had time to get some sewing done!  I managed to organize my 4 feet of space enough to work on some blocks.  How fun is that!

A while back I found a pattern on a great site, The Eclectic Abuela for her Boxes of Strings pattern. It’s a great way to use scraps and since my space is limited, a nice little project.

Here is the full sized version of the quilt:


I managed to get 29 of the blocks done today.  We’ll see how far I get before our Guild Meeting on Wednesday.  It would be nice to have something to show for the first time in months.

This is the sweet little stack of blocks I managed to finish today!

As usual, nothing goes smoothly these days.  As I was cruising along I heard a loud “Ping” and my Janomes machine stopped sewing.  I pulled it apart (thinking it might need cleaning) but it still won’t work right.  DH was the one who put the Ping and an improperly working machine together.  He then reminded me we have to go to Trail tomorrow so the Janomes can go to the hospital.  He then suggested I should start looking for a new machine and thought Amazon might be a good starting point.  I pulled out my Pfaff and was able to finish sewing the last of my blocks that were started.  I think I will have DH come in to Allan’s with me to look at the machines there.  Then he will have an idea of what I really need!

We are also looking at what could be our next home tomorrow  Trail is a logical place with the hospital right there, my favourite repair and fabric shop and diverse shopping available.  It’s also 2 hours closer to visit DH’s sister in law and her hubby in Sandpoint.  We do enjoy sneaking away for a visit and haven’t managed for almost a year.   So yes, I might be back to packing already for another move.

Have a great evening fondling fabric or just plain relaxing.  A new week of adventures starts tomorrow!

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
