It only got so far before I was off running on the cheddar bow-ties, then on the 3” spools, and other numerous things that pushed it way to the back burner.
I’ve pulled it back out because it is a good one to sew on while learning the new treadle machine – things don’t have to be that precise, and I’m having fun!
I’ve even got my guide figured out…I cut it in two pieces so when I need to change the bobbin, the slide plate can move without disturbing the seam guide.
The seam guide ((More info HERE)) is made from a piece of Scotch reusable strips with the piece of a hotel room key, a gift card, an old credit card, a shopping loyalty card (We’ve all got these that we toss away!) on top of it. The one I’m using is from a Christmas gift….it was the top part of a Cold Stone Creamery card! The gift that does double-duty – buys you ice cream and keeps you sewing a 1/4” seam!
Dinah’s beautiful stitch!
((Isn’t the John Deere tractor cute in the center of that star?!))
You might also notice that my spool of thread is almost empty. And yes – that I’m sewing with purple thread!
I’ve got a bunch of small spools of thread of various colors that I am doing my dangest to sew myself out of. Scrappy projects like this are great for using up odd ball colors of thread.
And oh, how I love the sound of yet another empty spool hitting the bottom of the trash can!
Plans are underway to escape the basement and head to a movie around 4pm ---sounds like fun to me!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend, whatever you are getting up to!
