A few weeks ago while out fabric shopping with Stefanie I ran across some beautiful green wool. I was looking for an ivy leaf color and at first when I went up to the shelf with wools I was so sad cause all I saw was the bright Christmas style green/red/yellow and while. Then down at the end of the row on a smaller bolt was this pretty green. It is made of several colors of green, thou that may not show up in the photo.
As I'd mentioned on an earlier post I'm a huge fan of Annemieke Mein and I was influenced by her work. Thou this is a far cry from her beautiful art, she has inspired me with her layered textiles that are filled with such life and depth. This little post card is for a swap over on The Connecting Threads group, Quilt With Us.
I also had some little scraps and made this little pin cushion today.
It's for a quilting buddy.Yesterday's quilting with my Sashiko didn't go as well as I'd hoped but the quilt is almost done. When I've worked on smaller sections with the Sashiko there has been no problems and it sews like a dream, but the larger quilt yesterday seemed to either cause problems or they just decided to happen. The thread breaking was maddening. So I'll drop by my dealer in a few days and ask what I need to do. Your tension adjustment on this machine is on the bobbin case only. So I may need to experiment with some adjustments. Not going to mess with it till I get a little advice thou. I'm sure it's something simple. It's a one stitch machine how complex can it be?
