So now I'm ready to tackle the mysteries of my daughter's sewing machine. It's an older Kenmore and is a good solid machine - no whacky whimmydiddles to confuse me as I tried to figure out things like 'Where's the Lever for the Presser Foot?' and 'How do You Set the Stitch Length?'
I used the 365 Challenge March 28 block as a test piece. (Getting way ahead of myself, but it was the easiest one in the stack.)
I figured out where the 1/4" seam allowance was accurate and set to work.
Another 365 block - this sweet little flower basket, which I really like. Enough so that I had a crazy idea to make several of these blocks and make a small quilt. Then I went and drank a glass of water and came to my senses. Those are 1/2" HSTs, folks...
(Sorry the picture is sideways, but I haven't yet figured out how to rotate photos. I'm still just happy that I can make them appear at all.)
And for a leader/ender while I was assembling that itsy basket, I made the last of the purple piglets for March.
Though it may not be the last purple piglet ever, since I also made another blue one in the January blue/purples, which implies that no color is really off the table.
(I'm going to have to ask where the iron is, so I can press these poor lumpy things...)
And you know how it is - where there are piglets,
could monkeys be far behind?
