The little sewing that I did manage this week was on frolic. I have half of the bottom border to quilt and half of the last half row.
My mom fell yesterday and broke her shoulder/arm. She has already done this to the other arm this year. Ladies, quilting can be dangerous. If you have a large hoard of fabric, when you decide to sift through it make sure you are not alone. She fell off the step stool and could not get up. Laid there from just before 11:00 to past 3:00. And the ambulance driver asked her if she sewed alot, my mom’s reply was, “You Think?”. So her and Dad visited the hospital. For those of you who are oblivious, they are doing “crowd” control at the hospital. Only 1 visitor and you are escorted, in some instances, you are escorted by police. Not because of anything you or yours have done wrong. I figure the hospital stuff is all made in China and they are controlling potential looting before it is a realization.
I am going to work the graveyard shift at work to minimize my contact with the 6000 other pea-tree dishes that I work with.
This blog may go silent for awhile.
Sunday, I took the belly bar off my quilting machine. I was always floating tops and only using the leader to keep my quilts square. Two hex head screws and now it resides on the garage floor. This may make camera access at a better position, for future youtube quilting videos.
Before, the belly bar.
After belly bar removal.
In looking at this photo, the portion of this hanging down, only half of it is left. I am almost there
I lack one side from having this bound.
Because the weeks to come are so sketch, You may or may not see any progress on my blog.
I am looking at getting the “circle thingy” it is kind of a hartley fence for the quilting machine. For those of you who do not know what this is, I am including a video that shows it. Basically it is a gyro spiro-graph like attachment for the machine.
Mine will make spiral circles, if I get it.
Toodles, and thank you for reading my blog!
