It’s Monday. Have you hugged your sewing machine today?

October 5, 2010

Go ahead. Give her a hug. Make her feel loved because with the holidays upon us, she’s going to work over time.
I’ve hugged mine, oiled her and even vacuumed her out. She was looking so good, I swear her needle winked at me.

Or maybe I was just hallucinating from sleep deprivation.

This weekend I knocked the following items off of my “to do” list:

I) Finished a dog bed for the 100lbs German Shepard.
Still not entirely sure if he likes it or not. He hasn’t really slept on it yet.


II) Kitchen Mat
Whimsical but chic. Linen can do wonders.

III) Purchased a sewing cabinet.
Yes, you’ve read that correctly. I’m going to finally have my own sewing space! The cabinet is solid wood and is heavy as H-E-Double Hockey Sticks. It’s a bit dated and smells of old wood. So, right now it’s in the garage until next weekend when I can sand it, repaint it, and add new hardware.

IV) Picked out paint color for the new craft room/old office

V) Added new the following scrumptious fabrics to my stash.

Things that didn’t get finished this weekend:
— Label two quilts that will be delivered on to recipients on Thursday. Seriously, I’ve got to get on this.
— Bind the Hawaiian Punch Quilt.
— Finish quilting this quilt
— Bind this quilt
— Work on hexagon quilt pattern
— Finish the binding on this wall quilt
— Write tutorial for doggie bed and kitchen mat.
— And make my Halloween costume/ tutu

Wow, I’ve got a bit of stuff to do.

    OMG!! I have a Singer sewing machine too! And I have a 100 lb dog AND I just finished binding a kitchen mat. Ummmm…. that’s all I got …

    Seriously …. I thought I was the only one in blogland with a Singer and I’ve been trying to hide the logo in my “action shots”. Thanks for hugging her in public and I think I’ll go hug mine 🙂

      Rolling on the floor laughing, Molly. There’s absolutely no shame in owning a Singer and I willing to stand proudly (and publicly) with her. She’s done me well over the years. Of course in full disclosure, I have to admit that I own a Babylock as well, but she spends most of her time on my quilting table. She’s an amazing, one stitch wonder that quilts like nothing else known to man. But with only one stitch available, I find myself using the Singer often. So take a pic and stand proudly with your Singer. I promise we are not the only one’s in blogland with one 🙂

    Looking at your blog & just had to share my kitchen mat…great minds thinking alike? Well, at least similar!

      So true — the best minds are always thinking alike! I really like your fabric selection. I’m huge fan of Laura Gunn’s Poppy Collection, but I haven’t the will power to cut into it quite yet. I do love your kitchen mat, though. It’s got me thinking about re-doing my bathroom mat in something made from the Poppy Collection 🙂
