Chuck or Phil? The big news today is .... are we going to have 6 more weeks or winter or is spring approaching. Sorry, but I vote for winter. Living in Houston Texas I cant see starting spring already, do you realize how HOT it would be this summer if spring officially started now. Although I can deal with our weather for a few more weeks I know how it feels to suffer the freezing cold because I grew up in Michigan, and got out as soon as I could!
Sorry Mom, but I vote for Winter! Only since winter for us means 50's and 60's for a few more weeks with the occasional chill here and there.
As for quilting goes, I have been working on things, I have been practicing my free motion quilting on scraps quilt sandwiches and lets say I'm getting better. At least now I know what the tension needs to be for my machine (took me a while to figure that out) and I have some practice under my belt. Not enough practice to take on the project I tried to take on....whew I really took three steps forward on that one! I attempted to quilt my Valentines quilt with feathers and some crazy hard quilting designs and wasn't quite ready to take on that adventure yet, lets just say I stopped mid quilt and put that project in the closet for a rainy day.
Today I will show you another part of my workspace, well its my sewing machine and my favorite accessory....my extention table. Its 24x24 and I really don't even notice that I don't have one of those fancy tables, this thing is awesome! Gives me the flat sewing surface I need and I love it. If you are looking to buy one of the name brand sewing machine tables, think about getting a sturdy table and an extention table first. You may find that you love it and it could save you a pretty penny. (or a pretty thousand dollars or more!)
This is everything I need! Well, except a table that doesn't vibrate at high sewing speeds....lol
........And YES! I love my Janome!!
