Another Weekend Update

Hi There!

By Sunday afternoon, I had watched the final episode of Season 2 of "The Big C" on Net Flix, bawled my eyes out, blew my nose, straightened out my shoulders and decided to watch a new episode - "Drop Dead Diva". Not as emotionally touching - slightly humorous and entertaining, nevertheless.

And, I continued to piece my "Orca Bay Mystery" blocks together.

You know, folks.... I gotta admit.

For me, this is the most ... *insert a yawn* ... boring part about making quilts... IMHO.



Sunday evening, I yanked out my 9 dollar purchased-at-a-yard-sale-this-summer featherweight and Gilbert and I .... but mostly Gilbert.... oiled it, tested it and....

HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!

It's got a beautiful stitch and it purrs like a kitten!!!



That's about it.

Hang in there....

Friday's coming....

I love to see people actually using their featherweights; I wish I had one for take-along project days. My luggable must weigh 40# at least!

Take care,

Hi Rosa... What a wonderful find... I have been looking for a featherweight for some time and not to spend lots of money on it... I wish I could find one for that price... The quilt blocks are beautiful... Hugs :)

My mom's featherweight is in my basement. Hubby has been asked to clean, oil and test it so I can use it. Looking forward to it, but I don't even know how to thread it!!!
