Was there a Friday Hayloft trip...?! Who went - Lor, LA...?! I know Dolores is coveting those flannels... ; ) What good buys were gotten?! Did you make a pit stop @ the Wind Mill?
I have my 440 machine (Gertrude) packed for a trip to Hinkletown tomorrow. After ALL the sewing she's done - she is over due for a spa treatment! So, she's going in for annual cleaning & service. I am taking her walking foot & the BSR for routine maintenance too. Mare & Dolores - as you have your 440 machines cared for throughout the years, remember to include their BSR & walking foot as well. You other girls, when you have your machines cleaned annually, your walking foot should be taken in for service also. They'll clean & oil it, + check the sole. ; )
Meanwhile, I set-up & cleaned my 1530 (Maude) machine! She sews beautifully & makes me smile. What a fine machine.
I plan on picking up Gertrude next Saturday on my way to or from the Jennifer Chiaverini luncheon, where I will meet up with Boonie Barb! : ) I'll be sewing with Maude this week! She's practicing & getting ready for Brigantine!!!
Speaking of my Maude machine...Jean, have you run your basting stitch lately? It had been a little while for Maude. I held my breath, pushed the buttons & put her through the paces. No problems. Whew!
I started working on a Piece 'o Cake design table runner. It's a tear sheet I pulled from magazine I don't know how long ago...?! It's wonky, fun & bright! Sort of "Cat in the Hat" like.
What stuff is everyone else sewing?! How are the projects from Jean's class coming along? Mare, Peggy, Dolores...?!
Lois - are you getting ready for your trip? What's the latest baby news? ; )
Cath - how's that ear? Two antibiotics & Prednisone?! Ouch!!!
Have a good weekend. It's perfect sewing weather!!! ; )
