We spent Saturday in the yard until the mossies (mosquito's) chased us inside. Saturday evening I managed to get quite a lot of stitching done on the larger Bronwyn Hayes block and after stitching this evening I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on this block.
Today was church as usual then a quiet afternoon doing not much of anything.
Tomorrow I must get into the sewing room and clear more than just a path to the machine. I'm such a messy sewer and then it gets the better of me and takes me half a day to clean up the path of destruction.
I have an old Singer Red Eye 66 that hubby and I have repaired and have in good running condition. Today we tried to attach the lower thread loop that sits just above the needle, only to find that the screw I have for it is the wrong size.
When I was living in Australia I had an old Singer suitably named "Slack Suzie" that I did all my machine quilting on. It used to sew like a breeze without ever skipping a stitch and thickness was never a problem for her. I'm hoping that this Singer (yet un-named) will replace Slack Suzie in the machine quilting department. I had thought about having Suzie shipped over here, but her weight is just too great to warrant the price of shipping plus all the plugs etc would need to be replaced, so she sits in my daughters spare room waiting for a new home.
Anyway I seem to be rambling, which seems to be a problem I've noticed as menopause sets in with avengance, dh will testify to this, along with his suffering from extreme cold as I go through a power serge otherwise known as a hot flash/flush, followed by extreme heat after said serge passes and the heating is turned up to full strength to compensate for the extreme cold I seem to have put him through. Oh the joys of living with a wife going through menopause.....lol......
Time for another photo, another Bronwyn Hayes block and another Crab Apple Hill design.
