While visiting family and friends in lower 48 before Thanksgiving, I did a bit of hand stitching. I started 3 pieces but only finished 1.
I also contracted a lovely eye virus that now prevents me from interacting with people at least until I am no longer contagious. (Family: no worries, it was allergies when you saw me, they made me susceptible to virus). I have lots of medicine and high hopes that it will be cleared up by Thursday for my quilt guild holiday shindig.
Thatâ€™s the virus eye looking markedly better.
So I have been stitching journals on my good Kenmore machine (thereâ€™s a bad one that I need to recycle). I know Jane could do it, but I set up in the dining room and Jane is a bit heavy to move her from the blue table she lives on.
I have 100+ stitches on my Kenmore and Iâ€™ve only been using straight stitch – for my project I could use most of the simple stitches but Jane has converted me. I barely think about using any others.
Wonder if I can get a ruffler foot for Jane?
