Hi y’all, the next instalment of our Thermoweb sew-along is ready to go. You can find it on the sew-along page here. This week I’ve uploaded a full alphabet. You can use these templates for Blocks #22, #23, #24 and #25 to spell out the word ‘Love’. You can also use them to, well, spell anything you want. Names, quotes, places etc. It’s okay to resize the templates if you have your own ideas.
Miss Janome came back from the techs all shiny and new. She sewed like a dream for three seams and then didn’t. Not the tech’s fault, I think she’s on her last legs. The blanket stitch option, which was the best I’ve ever sewn on a machine, is not good. I’ll play around this weekend, tighten the tension here, loosen the bobbin there and see what happens. I was hoping I could get another year (at least) out of her but I don’t think I’m going to be that lucky. Buying sewing machines is NOT my idea of fun. Apart from the obvious expense I like a good, solid basic machine without the bells and whistles and they’re hard to get!
I want to wish you and your families a wonderful Easter break. Take care, eat chocolate, do the church thing if that’s what you do, enjoy. Much love, toni xx
Ps. Last week I wrote a full post about how I was going to split the quilty bit of the blog and the personal bit of the blog in half. Well I deleted it because I felt stupid and foolish. I wrote more tonight but I deleted it again. My brain works in mysterious ways! xx
Today in my garden… Chrysanthemums and succulents.
Hubby retrieved the Peace Lillies (photo on the right, pots at the back) from their spot under the hedge and we re-potted them into giant pots! The new pots are almost a metre in diameter. Neither of us can lift them lol.
