I finally pulled my sewing machine out, after moving a few months ago. I had a small pile of clothes that needed a little extra help, a few pillows and a BIG quilt project to get started on. I finished my clothes mending and one pillow. I have 2 more pillows to complete and then I can get started on the quilt. Here are a few pictures to share with you on what it all looks like.
This is the one pillow that I have finished. It was hard becasue I am learning how to sew invisible zippers. I purchased the special invisible zipper foot attachment for sewing machines, but of course it would not work on my machine. So, I logged into my online friend, ebay, and found the exact one that I needed, that would fit my machine. I received it yesterday. Yay! I never would have thought that I would have been so happy to receive such a small piece of plastic. Ha!
This picture is one of the blocks that will make up the king size quilt that I will be starting soon. This will be a BIG project. I hope that I can cut out time each day to work on it so that I can finish in a short amount of time. I hope to have it completed by mother's day.
I will try to post and document my progress here. Maybe it will help motivate me to get it all done by the deadline that I have given myself. We shall see...
