I seem to be doing lots of sewing, but not much finishing....
I spent Saturday, between playing salesperson at the garage sale, piecing backs and piecing batting.  My cut-off pieces of batting are dwindling slowly, and I have 5 quilt tops with batting and backing, ready to pin baste.  Hoping to head to our clubhouse to use the large tables later today.
I took my Pfaff in for service this week, and it is home and running smoothly.  I also took in my old serger.  I only use it once or twice a year, but long ago, a child accompanying Mom for her dress fitting, damaged one of the tension dials.  It was still usable, but it needed adjusting every 6 inches or so.  It is also home and running like a top.  I used it to serge the raw ends of the fabric I reported last week, and it is all washed and folded on the shelf, awaiting its turn.....

  1. Nothing is better than having smooth running machines. You are using more fabric than you brought in - way to go!

  2. Glad your machines are purring again. Do you serge all the raw ends of your fabrics before washing? It sounds like a great idea, but where do you find the time? That might be a deterrent to buying too much fabric at one time in my book! ha

  3. You've had a great year on the stash busting. Enjoy your purring machines.
