After the drama of my sewing machine missing stitches it has been looked at by a person who knows what he is doing, has had a couple of new parts, and I was able to collect it the following day. Now that is good service! I actually wonder if my walking foot is moving whilst I am quilting and hitting the needle. I am going very slowly and checking regularly and all seems to be ok at the moment.
My job today is to get this baby quilt, quilted.
|Baby Quilt for E|
I have completed all the quilting down the quilt and now I am making my way across the quilt sewing 1/4" from the seams in each direction. I really want to get this one quilted quickly but I think that other things might displace this job!

Bizarrely, the name tag I made in the swap for the FQ Retreat has been whizzing around the postal system for a whole week and arrived back with me. It has a great big sticker on it saying that not enough postage has been paid. It was sent from our local Post Office, so I hot footed it up the village today, to see if our post office could shed light on it. It has now been restamped and put back in the postal system.
Sorry partner if you are getting anxious about not receiving your name tag, but the postal system has let me down! Let's hope it gets through, second time around!
Have a good weekend. I will be quilting for all I'm worth to get this quilt ready for binding!
