In: On my way back home on Friday I stopped for a Grunge background for the Dresden color wheel. The Stitching Post has beaucoup Grunge!! I found one, and then 3 pieces from the sale room and 10 FQs hopped in my bag! Most of the FQs are for a WhatNot project, jewel tones in vintage are on my radar. The others just caught my fancy. For last Monday, my race cohort put together a thank you bag for me with a Jelly Roll!! The twigs are for our next endeavor, a block collection. The last row is more Chandelier blocks from a guild member, from her BOM winnings. She won 3 times! And the magnet set is from my race cohort. What a sweet gift! I sign my emails, “keeping you in stitches”, so I am sure she laughed when she saw the one on the lower left.
Out: No new fabric out, most of the projects were already in progress. Used a Buttermilk Basin pattern to learn wool appliqué, need a lot of practice. I also had a cross-stitch piece in my stuff that needed a few letters done. My eyes don’t work for small count fabric anymore! I got the wedding top almost done, just 1 more seam and borders. Before heading south quilting on Picnic 1 got done. It’s getting close! I just need to figure out the quilting on the last 2 rounds.
Once I got home and recovered I got in the sewing room to advance some projects. Promptly sat down and STARTED 2 NEW ONES! Gah! Well, This was the mess that I left on Monday.
So, while I was trying to pick up I grabbed some leftovers from a baby quilt, and ended up trying to figure out what I could make from them. And below was the result. The 9 patches, well, of course I needed a leader/ender for the purple thing, so I grabbed my 2″ squares and started making them for some undetermined project in the future. I am intrigued with the Jack’s Circle pattern, so maybe?

Out: Worked on Squish’s sweater since my sewing machine was acting up, feed dogs aren’t making good contact. Grrr
It’s my cheap travel machine, so I’m considering buying a new one, or whether to have this one fixed. At $100 base price +repairs, I’m not sure. I might let Hubster root around and see if he can adjust the screws. I can’t get them to budge! Anyone have experience on a Janome MC 3000?
