Here’s her story:
Hey Bonnie,What a rescue, April! And I don’t know who is luckier – You or Moony! I love seeing kitties getting into the act!
On New Year's Day I was sewing and I heard alot of meowing outside.
It was -10 below or more so I went to check and it was this very small black kitty, cold to death and so skinny she was close to death from no food.
So I picked her up and brought her inside and we’ve been trying to save her since. She is so pretty and doing better .
We named her Moony and I thought she was 4 months old cuz of how thin she was but she was 12 months old. So she likes to come by me sometimes and on top of my sewing cabinets. Here I have her in the pic watching quilt cam!
I just had a very close call – and not a fun one….
I was quilting away on the quilting machine, and all of a sudden something went wrong and the cables were flagging and the machine was stitching over previous stitching and making a mess! WAAAAAHHH!
And Quilt-Cam is about to happen. What to do, what to do?
Leave the problem for later, I guess. There will be some picking out to do, and I hate to pick out pantographs!
I’m all set up to do some strip piecing on the Eatonia.
I’m not sure how long that will last – I’ve had a bit of a trouble with the belt staying put. Remember, her mountings were for a friction motor, and that motor is shot so I popped this Singer Spartan motor on. The groove in the balance wheel doesn’t quite line up with the motor pulley ---close, but not quite so the belt is at a slight angle. If I get to sewing too fast, as I often do……..Wwwiiiiiiizzzz! Off goes the belt.
I figure if it gives me too much trouble, I’ve got a “stand by” machine waiting in the wings.
I am hoping that this bobbin runs out so I can test out the bobbin winder :c)
Want to come join me? Bring a project! I’m turning on the cam in the studio for a while!
