Another Tent for Millie

My sewing machine is in the shop because the tech wants to test it with a new bobbin race. The thread cutter works intermittently, and when it doesn't it's the bottom thread that doesn't cut. A new bobbin race may resolve the problem. Intermittent problems are the hardest to troubleshoot, so I'm fine with it.

While I can't sew I'll do stuff that doesn't need my machine. I have had this fabric for several months and I think it will make a terrific tent for Millie. Now is a good time to cut it out.

I'll also tidy up the studio a bit and press fabrics for the next scrap slabs.

To those who are wondering, yes, I do plan a tutorial on the scrap slab quilts I've been making - Fruit Loops and Treasure Trove along with any other variations. I'll let you all know when it's ready.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year to you my friends, we hope 2017 is another great one for you. Miss M is going to have a great summer with all those tents.

Really, think about getting a vintage 3/4 size Kenmore, the 1040. For less than 150.00, it will sit in its cute plastic case until the other machine goes in for repairs. It is an all metal machine, a great motor, and nice sidekick for emergency situations. Happy New Year and thanks for sharing your process on your blog.
