I watched a movie, "New in Town" with Rene Zellweger and Harry Connick, Jr....it was okay, but nothing to write home about. I finished a book, "Just Take My Heart", by Mary Higgins Clark. The book was better than the movie.
I did the usual chores...straightened, a couple loads of laundry and dishes...several trips outside with the dogs...like that.
But, here's the exciting part. I did a bunch of sewing! Wait til you see...oh. I cannot show you one thing I did. Darn! You'll see it soon, though. There was a lot of cutting and piecing with it, and I made a mistake, but was able to readjust everything. It turned out the way it was supposed to...just a bit smaller.
Okay, so that doesn't excite you?
How about this? I stippled with my Janome! YAY! Those of you in the know...you've heard all the stories of how my babylock gave me huge fits about free-motion quilting. Fiddled and adjusted and just couldn't get it to come out looking good. Tension was never right. Well. My Janome is another story. Put the darning foot on, thread/bobbin...and away I went! It was kinda fun. I tend to get a little panicky, though, cuz I sometimes lose my place. But, as I do more, I'll be able to relax and enjoy it.
Here's a photo of the front.
...and the back.
OH! Here's my DQS7 mini...I did the quilting and sewed on the binding on Thursday night. I wanted the circles to be more uniform in size, but it didn't work out that way. Overall, I am pleased with it. I did actually consider doing diagonal lines...both ways to form diamonds, but really wanted to do something free-motion. This is what I ended up with. Now, I just need to handsew the binding and that'll be done. Got another idea going on in my head that I might get to tomorrow.
So. What'd you do today???
