Wow, it’s been so long, I hope I remember HOW to do this!
I did get the robin’s egg blue machine running. New belt. New bobbin tire. Lots of oil, a new needle, and some tension adjusting…..and the only problem is that this baby must have been born during the early days of rock-n-roll because he sure likes to shimmy!
I put him in a wooden base I have because his other case base was busted….and that allowed him to vibrate more. I may have to sew with him directly on the table which might make him more stable ---and then we can do the name game and the hand jive “shimmy shimmy cocoa pop, shimmy shimmy shy……”
He still needs a name, but here I am testing him out on a long term leader-ender project that has been at a standstill for a while….Maverick Stars!
Some day I will have a whole quilt of these…I’ve only ever used them as accents in quilts here and there..never a whole quilt with them! But they are a great use of all those corners snipped off of binding ends….so the stack just grows.
However, tonight I am in the mood to string piece and get some treadle action going.
So --- I’m back to working on the string blocks for my Geese on a String. Come to think of it --- I can’t remember where I put the other ones that I got the wing triangles on! But I know I need more, so that’s just what I’m doing.
What to come join me? Bring a project! I’m turning on the cam in the studio for a while!
