I finished the Navy Blue Background Swap quilt top yesterday. I have a bunch of blocks left, but I may make them into table runners or placemats. Some friends have a craft show every fall and have invited me to sell, which will be a great way to get rid of some of my excess creations. Here's the top which I will quilt eventually:
This morning, I took my sewing machine to be cleaned and checked at a newish rendition of a community sewing machine shop. Betty and Carl bought the business from a very nice, old gentleman who had sold the business to someone else who didn't do such a good job. He bought it back and then sold it again after a few years, having found just the right people this time. While I am without "Rose," I have my old reliable Viking 100 which can't quilt but which makes great buttonholes and sews in a fairly straight line. I am playing around with scraps for a few days, which will be fine. And here's a photo of my hearts doorhanging, just for February!
