Sew'in, Cuss'in and Wash'in
Did sew ..some..;-)
Just these dog scarves .
Made them for a pal of DH’s 3 dogs.
I have also been TRYING to get the hang of the new serger.
Well I must admit there has been some ugly words spoken!!
I have to say I have got it threaded and can do some stitching.
Sadly the ‘stitch’ I bought it for I can’t seem to figure out!!!
The manual really is not done up very well.
Janome did email me some setting info but not working.
It looks as if I will have to take it to class and be taught how to use it!!
I have been washing up some fabrics.
Was given a basket full a while back and just stored it.
Decided to pull out, wash up and see what can be done with it.
Some will make its way into some quilts and other projects.
Was some wonderful white and cream cotton yardage in the pile!!
Some has some rust on it but can be cut around I think.
About 8 yards of the pink!!
There is a lot of yardage of cotton/poly.
Bright colors too. I have decide to make up some dog kennel quilts with it.
Really should be quite sturdy and hold up to a few washings.
Think I have some poly batting somewhere.
That strip on top is all cotton though, but so soft.
Maybe PJ Bottoms...;-)
I hope to be sewing on some projects again this coming week and cooking on my new gas cook top!!
