My goal last week was to finish quilting my GD's quilt so I could take it to my guild meeting on Monday and then send it to my GD. Well, I had problems with my sewing machine, so on Friday I took it to be serviced thinking it would take about a week. I decided to make a new purse with the pattern and fabric I bought in Oregon last summer at BJ's Quilt Shop since I could use my Featherweight. It is so nice to have a "back up" sewing machine!
I really liked the purse when I saw their sample hanging in the shop and the directions were quite complicated, but I got it finished in time for church on Sunday!
Both sides look the same, so it is confusing. I keep getting into the wrong pocket. There is a zippered pocket and an outer pocket with a snap on each side.
Inside there is a pocket for my cell phone and two other pockets. I still haven't gotten everything organized yet.
While we were in Oregon, I found this "toy" ironing board at a garage sale (where else?) and couldn't resist. DH refinished it for me.
Yesterday I made an ironing board cover for it since we will be taking Abby's Christmas and birthday gifts with us when we go to her house for Thanksgiving.
View of the top. Now we just have to find a toy iron for it!
Oh, my sewing machine was fixed by Saturday, so I went and picked it up. It seems to be working fine, but I had to re-prioritize my quilting and some other items will come before my GD's quilt.
Hoping for no sewing machine problems for all during this busy time of year.
