I finally finished my Christmas Tree Skirt! Yay! You can read all about it here!
I love the feeling of being able to check a project off my list.
So... WiP #1 = Christmas Tree Skirt. Check!
In addition to finishing my tree skirt, I have also been working on the fundraiser quilt again. It is due by this coming Sunday. Nothing like putting it off till the last minute, right??
WiP #2 = Fundraiser Quilt
I actually have had the quilt top done for over a month. I finished it right before I left on my trip.
Last night I sandwich it and basted it, and I thought I would get a good start on the quilting, but my machine was giving me issues. I have not quilted on my new machine yet, so I am not sure what the problem was, but I wanted to do some straight line quilting and it kept skipping stitches.
Part of the problem may be that I am using a regular presser foot. I don't have a walking foot for this machine yet, because, even though I ordered one to come in with my machine, it has supposedly been on back order for the past 4 months. I am almost to the point where I am going to go get a refund and get one from another Bernina store in a different town.
Another problem may be that I need to raise the height of the presser foot. I will try raising it, however, I am not going to spend much time trying to figure the problem out. If that doesn't fix it, I will just get out my old mechanical Bernina that has a walking foot.
I have also added a new project, or rather, remembered an old project and pulled it out.
WiP #3 = Living Room Pillows
I have been wanting to recover my living room pillows for quite some time. However, I wanted to do them in navy blue and for a long time, I couldn't find anything I liked in navy blue.
Last year some time, I found a fabric I really loved and bought some. (That's it in the photo above. Purty, ain't it??) However, I wanted a different coordinating fabric to recover some of the other pillows, and couldn't find anything else that I liked. So I stuck the fabric in my closet and I guess have just been waiting until I found something else I liked to go with it.
Well, I finally found something I like. And I am excited to get my living room finally pulled together with stuff that I love, rather than just stuff I have settled for until something better comes along.
So, I am going to go get the new fabric today, and I pulled out the "old" fabric last night. As soon as the Fundraiser quilt is done, the pillows will be next on the agenda!
