"Oh Donna, Oh Donna..
I know a girl, Donna is her name and since she met me (at Quilters and stitchers fair) , life's never been the same......."
Why?? Because she reminds me constantly about the great quilting frame in my sewing room that I haven't been using!!!
Well, Donna at chookyblue, do I have news for you!!
On my second afternoon of cleaning I finally got my sewing room to this stage, so i can see the quilting frame. (I took a before shot but am too humiliated to share!!)
I got the other side to an organised stage like this..
with some handy new Aldi containers. Lots of fabrics sorted by projects, i think that will work for me...and I can see them! Dh will have a fit when he sees more shelves and containers, One and a quarter walls are fully shelved ( & full!)-but, the search for the perfect container is a woman's never ending search for some kind of organisational Utopia! Life will be organized there!
As I could see the quilt frame I proceeded to get it to work. The frame was initially set up wrong, then I found out the machine was set up wrong, today i had the time and inclination to fix it and we got results.
TA Da!! Real honest to goodness quilting!
Well, if you don't look too close it's not too bad!
I was very naughty-I just used vintage chenille on the back so noone will be able to see how badly this first one went.
I have only been able to get stitch in the ditch type patterns up to here, I am loving the stipple look.
Actually, i think I may be in love. Maybe I will join the get 5 things done by July challenge!
Have a great day and remember you have 2 days to comment...on this or the last post-I'm pretty relaxed about giveaways, for the chance to have some cards come your way
