I finished up two more bibs last week at our sewing day at Julie's house. I'm having so much fun with the applique, and I'm even thinking I need a shirt with something appliqued on the front!
Using a newer machine (thanks Michelle!) reminded me how smoothly sewing projects can go. Back on my [mom's] old machine yesterday, I considered going on a sewing strike until I get a new machine. But I'm the only one who would really miss it. And I'm the only one who needs convincing. Every time I complain to E that I need a new machine, he says, "OK." But I'm too cheap. Maybe for Christmas.
I wish I had gotten a better shot of the brown and orange side of this one--it's one of my favorite fabrics ever. It's from superbuzzy, a long time ago, and is the floor plan of a house, but with funny Japanese English misspellings, including a "gest room" and "marole" (marble?) in the kitchen. I love it!
