My aunts sent me a bundle of fabric for my birthday! Really neat patterns and some solid colors to go with them. I also struck gold at a Joanne’s coupon craze sale getting a ton of fabric and some new tools. I got a new Gingher rotary cutter that is adorable. It works like a dream. Way better than my old one. I also got a new ruler that has the different angles to measure degrees on it. My binding turns out much nicer with this. I need a smaller version soon since this one is like 36″ long (which is handy when cutting long strips) and can become cumbersome when drawing a 45 degree line on a binding strip.
I’m currently working on a fundraising project making some quilted crate mats/doggie mats out of the flannel fabric that I have. They are turning out ok. The first one I did is a bit small and some of my free motion quilting turned out oddly since my darning foot was acting up. I got a new darning foot that is ALL METAL and it works so much nicer! I can’t wait to use it.
Once I’m finished with my charity projects I think I’m going to make some curtains for my office since they took my blinds away and I feel like I’m working in a fishbowl. I need to go find some discount fabric at Joannes and sew up some quick curtains. They can’t be that hard to make.
