Sunny Sunday

In honor of the lovely sunshine, I spread out the squares from the charm pack I bought yesterday (I actually bought 2). These fabrics just make me happy. I'm getting some ideas on what to do with them, but for right now, I'm content to just gaze at them.


This is the very innocent-looking serger I bought last fall and kept into a box until someone could teach me to use it. There are lessons at Hancock Fabrics tomorrow, so I'm going to show up and see if it's possible to learn.
Just learning to thread it is going to take an engineering degree - and then some patience. Four thread spools and 4 convoluted paths that each thread takes. And it has little knives, so even though it's turned off, I'm still afraid to poke around the insides. Maybe that's what I'll learn in the class tomorrow.


Don't forget to pray for Nienie http://nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/ Even though she has beat all the odds and survived, she still has a long way to go, physically and, I'm sure, emotionally. The first 2 reports I typed this afternoon were a Code Blue for a cardiac arrest and an auto accident in which a 21-year-old girl had severe trauma to her legs, so the sun is not shining as brightly for everyone today.

  1. Hi, I just saw the pictures of the fabric packs that you bought. They look so pretty that it makes you feel like spring has arrived. By the way what are you thinking of making with them. When you make them up be sure and post the pictures. Barbara

  2. Aren't they pretty? I hardly ever like every one of the fabrics in a package of charm squares, but I do these - kind of like the Simplicity ones. I want 2 yards of each of them - just to have. I'm still thinking about what to make. Inspire me.

  3. Wish I had lots of idea's for you but I the only thing that I can think of is maybe a table runners or maybe a wall hanging or even a lap quilt that way you could always enjoy the feeling of spring no matter the weather.Since you do nice work no matter what you choose to do it will be nice.
