Today Bernie went to the sewing machine "spa" for his yearly check-up and a BSR update. He'll be away for a few days--sniff, sniff. In his stead will be this little beauty, Whitey. Whitey is a lightweight machine I bought several years ago to take to classes and workshops. He was quite inexpensive and does a decent job. He has needle down, several decorative stitches, and a few other handy tricks up his sleeve. While I was on a roll to chain-piece more HSTs, I set him up in the living room on an old rickety TV tray (remember those???) and stitched away in front of the TV. To date I have 146 HSTs made towards the Broken Dishes baby quilt. They sewed up so-o-o fast! Of course, the time consuming part is trimming them all out to 3 1/2" square!!!!
Several of these HSTs, though, will probably be culled out and set aside for future projects. The colors are not quite right. It's so hard to tell this until they are plastered to the design wall.
More glorious weather in KC. It's in the mid-70s with beautiful sunshine today. Can the real spring be very far behind?
