Sweet Sunday Sewing, Or Not?

This morning I got up bright and early hoping to see sunshine or the possibility of blue skies to be able to take pictures of some almost finished or finished projects. It was not to be as the grey skies and many grey clouds showed that today would likely be another wet one. I’m not going to complain too much! The more moisture we get the bigger delay until fire season begins here in British Columbia. It’s heartbreaking to know that High Level, Alberta is already evacuated because of a fire that is just miles away from the town.

Plan B meant I would get my sewing space tidied up after the last couple of days of sewing. Then the plan was to get out my Pfaff Hobby Quilter, change out some feet and play with some new rulers I purchased the other day in Trail, BC at Allan’s Sewing Machine and Repair when I had to take one of the Guild machines in for servicing.

The tidying occurred quickly. Machines were swapped out. The Pfaff was taken apart for a quick cleaning as I usually do before I start a new project or if the machine has not been used for a while. My sewing table was clear. Everything was clean. Cords were in place. Needle was changed. Practise sandwiches were made. All was good to go. Ooops ! Needed to fill some bobbins. I reached in to remove the bobbin case from the machine. The case came out but the bobbin remained. Back in I again reached with my left hand while my right hand rested on the machine. I sneezed and my hand hit the needle down button. A few choice words, some peroxide and a nice clean bandage was on my middle finger which is now missing a chunk from the fingerprint/pad portion of my fingertip. The blood loss determined that it was nap time for me!

After a short nap I got up and managed to finish filling some bobbins and had some fun with my rulers.

Then out came one of the two remaining fundraising quilts to get the quilting finished. I am hoping to get them both done and binding on by month end.

In the meantime I can count 2 more finishes for the month! I finished designing and testing a block for a Row Along which will start in September (which I can’t show). I also finished a queen size quilt pattern I was testing (which I also can’t show) which I can only tease you with a peek!

Aren’t those colours and fabrics great together?

Thank you for stopping by. I do hope your Sunday was accident free and filled with fun times or fabric fondling! 🤪 Cheers! Carol

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.

  1. Hi Carol! Oooh, that sneak peek looks so very pretty. That one fabric looks like bronze and has a nice sparkle to it! Sorry about the blood loss but it sounds like you rallied well. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Roseanne. I love the way the lighting in my sewing nook changes the colors of the fabrics. 🥴. That beautiful bronze is actually a light beige-brown. As for rallying we do try hard! Nothing must interfere with trying out new rulers. 😉. Carol

  2. Wow so sorry about your finger! That would have been more than scary. Don’t know that I would have returned to sewing so fast after something like that. You are a brave girl! Congrats on getting all that work done! Those charity quilts look great. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
