Just thought I would share a bit of my day...
1.) Organized some fabric:
|I decided to store smaller pieces of fabric in this unused sweater keeper,|
still have plenty of room for more!
|Not sure this will work...fabric height too high but at least organized!|
2.) Went for a pedicure:
|I love the color Orange!|
4.) Picked up my sewing machine from the repair shop. It was been there 3 weeks! I know! You feel my pain. Well, don't feel too sorry for me, I have another machine so I have been sewing! I have a Janome Jem Platinum 760 that I purchased when I decided to learn quilting about 5 years ago. It's considered a three-quarter's machine. SMALL! The machine that was sick was my Janome Memory Craft 6600. The tension was broken and needed repaired desperately. I was putting tape on the tension dial to keep in one place! So finally, I broke down and took it in. Well, it was an expensive repair...see the repair ticket! That's right, $123.00 Big Bucks! I hope after this repair that I can make better stitches! I kept blaming bad stitching on my sick machine...what if it's me that's the problem???? Of course, not!
5.) Fabric......Right next to the repair shop is a fabric shop. I was drawn to it just like a moth to a flame! I bought a five fat quarter bundle last week at this shop. I fell in love with this fabric. It's Laura Gunn, Garden Wall collection. The store ran out of the floral print :( I asked the owner if she could get more and she is going to call and see tomorrow. I was afraid that she wouldnt 't be able to so I went on line and found a fat quarter bundle on Etsy from sewlovefabrics! I was so excited that she had it; I bought it on the spot. I also purchased a couple other fat quarters. Wow. I said I wouldn't buy more fabric this month because of the repair bill...do you think my husband will notice??? No worries...he loves me! I'll cook him something nice ;)

While at the store today, I picked up a Thanksgiving Charm pack and a yard of Laura Gunn's Orange Painters Canvas:
I plan to sew a table runner using the X and O quilting pattern found at the Missouri Star Quilt Co.
Well, as you can see, I had a full day....;)
P.S. I think I might need to go to a fabric anonymous meeting....
