Busy Hands, Busy Machine

It has been a little over a week since I got my sewing machine back from getting lubed and tuned.  It had been over 4 years (tsk tsk tsk, shame on me).  Because I had not had it serviced, the build up a lint did cause something to get replaced.  I did start cleaning my own machine but was uncertain where to lube it.  Was it worth $149?  Yes!  No more clatter, chatter.  It sounds anew!

If you follow my blog you know that I recently made a Jelly Roll Race quilt that I entitled Jelly Roll Wrong.  I had an execution error in my design.  But, I have recouped and now it is under the needle being stitched with thread.  I have decided to do feathers and paisleys and whatever else to fill in the voids.

jjwquiltingI am getting a work out with my shoulders as I have not quilted anything this large since Green Lemonade.

And even better news, I finished the top for En Provence!  The hard part is done.  The work I put into it was not difficult, just time consuming.  I am debating taking it to a longarmer as the fight with my DSM 6 1/2 inch throat space is a bit too small for 87 X 87.

And then keeping my hands busy I started my La Passacaglia.  As you can see below my stitches are showing, but I have watched a few videos and am going to try something new and different.
