Well, its been a while since I did a sit rep,
I thought it was about time for another
So since the arrival of the Long Arm, I've been playing
first up I loaded a practice piece
I went with some Superior So fine, its always a great player for thread, and the bobbin that was already loaded in the machine, and quickly moved onto some Aurifil Poly, and they both played nicely
and after about half an our and a meter of fabric, I was ready to load up a quilt
I started off with some Superior Fantastico, but I was having issues, so after I had done one whole pass of these feathers, I changed back to So Fine and finished the job.
this isn't the best quilt I've ever done, but I did learn a lot
and so I loaded another, I was on a roll!
I went back to the Aurifil Poly as it had played so well
and in no time at all I got this one done too!
But more on that in the next post!
In other news this week, there was a destash sale happening on Instagram,
thanks to Emily for organizing the #greatukfabricdestash
just some of the stash I dug out for the destash,
thank you to everyone who bought from me and saved me from my overflowing addiction!
I was exceptionally good, I only bought these, and in the end, Fiona and I did a swap!
so technically, I didn't buy anything!
but I am a sucker for Art Gallery Fabrics!
and then there was a visitor to the house!
who traveled with her own hand made overnight bag!
there have been a few other things, you know what I am like,
why do one when you can do ten things!
