I was warned. I didn’t listen. I wouldn’t happen to me! I can handle it. I spent most of yesterday looking out of the door for the postman to deliver the new sewing machine I had bought from ebay. It cost me, three old suits, three pair of shoes and a Laura Ashley lampshade! Fortunately for the sake of postie’s health, he delivered it by nine o clock this morning. And then it started! I’ve not stopped sewing, pinning and ironing all day. My hands are numb and my back aches but first thing tomorrow morning I will make another attempt…………this time I shall get up earlier and get more done!!!!
So far I have sewed together enough squares for seven rows of the 36 rows needed for my bed quilt! Each step of the way I keep referring to You tube and the fantastic ‘how to make a quilt’ videos on there. I’ve made quite a few mistakes and spent ages unpicking and repinning as some corners were not square and I know it will look bad if they are not.
So there it is, I’m a quilting addict. I can’t wait to get the batting, make the multi-coloured bias for the edging (I intend to use all the bits and bobs for the edges) and start hand quilting. I’m sure I’ll be back to watch You tube to see the different methods to do that. I also can’t wait to have something on my bed that I’ve made all myself. What a brilliant day!
