I have been so busy quilting Kissed by the Sun, I almost forgot I have a blog! I'm not sure I like what I did today, but it is done, and I'm not ripping it out. I'll show you, of course, when it is all done. I still have two borders and the background in the sunflowers to do.
I was doing ruler work today, and my machine was NOT cooperating! It wasn't the machine actually -- it was the table. When you do ruler work, you need a flat surface underneath the quilt and something to press on. So, someone invented a tool for that, and I have it. It is an acrylic table, sort of, that sits on top of the sewing arm. The problem is, it is kind of thick, and if you get too far up near the top, the thing bumps and stalls; and if you get too near the bottom, the thing bumps and stalls. I ripped out stitches all day long!
As I near the end, I usually hate whatever I'm sewing or quilting, but I usually love it later. Let's hope that holds true!
Some of you may recall I got a new car at Christmas time because I needed something my two big dogs could ride in.
My Toyota Camry has been for sale ever since. A lady called today saying she had CASH, and she wants to come see it tomorrow. Only problem is, the Toyota isn't here. It is at the other house. Poor Jerry had to make another overnight trip up there to switch cars and bring the Toyota back here. Sure hope the lady buys it! Too many cars.
I think I might go back upstairs now that I've had dinner and finished the laundry. I have several jewelry patterns I want to try out.
Be back soon!
