Suddenly we are thrown into Summer! hot today and it should not be! far too early for Summer to arrive but it does look like Winter has flown..... not perfect sewing weather!
I pinned the Farm Quilt today..... here is how I do my pinning ......
|I like curved pins. I have pinned this top ready|
to stitch in the ditch to start with.
Once the middle area is pinned, I move the sides over
and pin those.
|Setting up my Featherweight 222K|
I am using the giant adjustable extension table
from Sewing Buddies Australia
I removed it from my Brother PQ1500 and was
surprised to find that it fit perfectly on to
my Featherweight with no adjustments needed!
|As I had shifted the FW over to my other table, I brought|
in my 99K hand crank. I will give her some
work to do. Look at that ! - the Feathermate table (also from
Sewing Buddies Australia) from
my Featherweight fits nicely on to my 99K box.
|In preparation for quilting I gave my FW bed a light polish|
|I am using Gutermann thread in the bobbin but Aurifil thread|
in the top so I did have to play with the upper tension - moved it from 4 to just past 5
I took a photo to remind me!!
So I am all set to commence the quilting!
|A lovely surprise in the mail today|
Thank you Leonore!
An early birthday gift - I love the zipper purse, very clever!
and the little turtle is for cleaning your computer or phone screen - how
cute is that!
Cheers from Helen
