However, I moved to my straight stitch machine and began working on a fabric bowl. I sewed fabric on lots and lots of clothes line and started the trimming. I had to push pretty hard to get the cord right up to the zipper foot so my right hand really hurts, the old arthritis, you know. I didn’t get all the trimming done but will try to get back to that on Monday. I did take pictures but I must have put them on the other computer. lol
Saturday I started quilting Fish, the charity quilt. And this is how it looks now: I finished it this afternoon. This was free motion: two types of meandering with some fish added in the borders.
I pieced the batting and it worked excellently as I can’t feel the joins.
And these are the strips I plan to use for the binding.
Saturday afternoon I decided to see if I could find the sewing machine needle recommended for the fabric bowls (resting some from the quilting). Neither of the fabric stores in our town had the needles so DH and I took off for NWFL to a LQS that I knew where they have a great selection of needles and sure enough, there was just what I wanted. And, of course, I purchased some fabric (only 1 yard) while I was there. This picture is also on the other computer so my next blog is already looking good. And, as long as we were out of state, we went on to a bigger town where we dropped some coin at Office Depot (ink and various office supplies), Moes (burritos) , and Publics (WW food we can’t get at home). And, lucky me, we got home in time to watch some college football.
This evening we are NOT watching football. DH has taken pity on me and we are watching movies. A nice way to rest from a very productive weekend.
Edit: I didn't have anything on my design wall this morning so I jumped up and made this mini quilt so I didn't look like I wasn't doing anything.
