August has been an “eye” month for me. Follow up on the cataract surgeries.. then laser treatment to scar tissue that was covering the “opening” to the eye. So not a lot of quilting got done, tho I was able to sandwich quite a few quilts.
Was also able to get a new machine to make that quilting easier.. Janome 9400 with a ll.5 throat. It’s a learning curve for me to operate just now. But I’m conquering it a little each day. So far I love everything about it.
The machine you see in the “design board” post is a 1901 singer with the Phoenix decals. And it works beautifully. I love sewing on it: takes me back to my pre-teen years when I first got to use a sewing machine. I have a quilt top I made with it.. Curved Log Cabin.
And my little helper follows me and watches as I work with my fabric.. His favorite spot?: next to my machine: Not always so wide awake as he is in this photo..
and I’m back to work on some patriotic blocks to fill in some blank spots on MY Quilt…
