So my very next podcast episode will be episode 50. Episode 50! I can’t believe it. I want to do something special for it and will likely host a giveaway once I dig through my sewing room and find some stuff.
It’ll be fun reflecting on the past 50 episodes. Looking forward to what’s in store for the next 50!
In other news, I’m getting my Janome 415 worked on this week so I can have it in the office. My boss told me I was welcome to have a sewing machine at work for when I’ve got a break or I’m at lunch. I’ll take small piecing projects and such with me that travel well and don’t require a lot of workspace. Nothing too complicated.
It stopped working correctly last January and wouldn’t reverse stitch any longer. It made buttonholes impossible to do. I was forced to get a new sewing machine and ended up purchasing a Viking Sapphire 855.
I’m ready for it to be fixed so I can use it again.
This week I have to work on piecing a quilt back for my little Origins quilt that’s going to the longarmer. Hoping I can get that done today or tomorrow so I can pop it in the mail pronto. The large jelly roll origins quilt will also have a pieced back but I’m not in a rush to work on that one.
I did get a solid vintage sheet to use as backing for my mom’s batik jelly roll quilt that I’ll be putting a border on this week.
Once all that is done the quilt leaf will come out and I’ll be quilting all sorts of quilts! I’ve got “Leftovers”, a corgi wallhanging, my mom’s JRR and the origins JRR quilt that I need to do.
Not sure what thread I’m going to use with the batik yet.
