When you have lemons, make lemonade.
As you know, the machine is gone and I can’t work on the Pineapples (Well, I suppose I could, but I want to be sure all of the problems are consistent by using the same machine). I have a Janome Jem, which I have only used a handful of times, so I have formulated a list of other things I can work on while giving the Jem a little workout. Here it is:
- 6 baby blankets: three friends/colleagues are having babies-2 each
- Binding for Sharon’s quilt.
- Binding for Serendipity Puzzle.
- Gift bags: I have lots of fabric for bags, and Christmas is coming.
- Cut out fabric for test blocks. I am going to start looking at new machines soon and I want to have some piecing in my own fabrics, which I can use to test the machines.
- Wash and press new fabric.
- Replenish Pineapple strips.
I also have a lot of hand work, which I can now work on since the thimble came back from vacation:
- Pamela’s self portrait from June 2006
- Pamela’s garden from June 2006
- Pamela’s house and garden from May 2007
- Kissy Fish
So now I am going to get off my duff (computer) and start some of these projects.
