WIP Wednesday

quilting fuzzy duckling quilt

Sewing seems to have it’s good days and it’s bad days around here. Some days, I manage to finish my last piece of stitching just before my bobbin run out, other times, I end up with a machine malfunction and a quilt stuck in the machine. This was a quilt stuck in the machine sort…

WIP Wednesday – A New Machine

I’ve been a big slacker about getting any sewing done lately, what with the new baby ducks, and my utter laziness. But I do still have something to share with you this week- a brand new (to me) sewing machine. This jewel was my birthday gift from my husband.  It’s about a month after my…

It Has to Have a Motor

Over the last few months, my husband and I have been watching a episode of Deep Space 9 each night before bed. Yes, we are nerdy like that.  The other night, I mentioned that I would love to have the $6000 leather catsuit that Alternate Universe Kira wears. I think it would be super awesome…

I stopped by one of the local antique malls over the weekend, hoping to find some inexpensive, but classy jewelry to wear to my brother-in-law’s wedding.  No luck on the jewelry, but when I stopped to look at a vintage camera (they’re beautiful, I always stop for them), I happened upon the most adorable sewing…

However, I still haven’t gotten to do any sewing with my machine.…

A Christmas for Sewing

My husband gave me the best Christmas present I could think of, and better yet, I wasn’t expecting it.  He bought me a Singer Featherweight sewing machine! There’s a little damage to the cord that Matt wants to fix before he’ll let me use it.  He’s afraid I might burn up the motor with the…

Fancy Feet

Thanks to a recent episode of Sewing with Nancy, I’ve decided I want to try out some fancy new feet for my sewing machine.  I’m so glad I remembered to set my DVR.  Apparently the local PBS thinks they should run the sewing shows at 6 o’clock on Saturday mornings.  Crazy people.  Don’t they know…

That Quilt Project

So, it has occurred to me that I haven’t bothered to tell you all how my quilt project is going, in quite a while.  Basically, as soon as I got my sewing machine back, I started having problems with it again. This is a big problem!  Partly, because I’d like to get the pieces for…
