One Year Absence

Pin It So, it has been a whole year since I posted. I have been sewing. I just haven't been blogging. I lost my blogging mojo last year when I lost my really cool job at my company and had to go back to my old job. I'll be honest. I was very angry for a very long time about it. I'm mostly over it now. But I still struggle because my current job is very physically demanding and I'm not getting any younger. Enough whining, on to the sewing.

I made what was supposed to be a twin size quilt for my Hubby. In the picture below, I am standing on a 18" tall stool with my arms outstretched as far as I can.


I have two more quilts that are at the quilters right now. I will post pictures when I get them back and get the binding on.

I bought a new sewing machine too. A Bernina 830. I got a great deal on it because it was a used machine with about 100 hours on it. Someone traded it in because they wanted to upgrade to the 830 LE (limited edition). It has been quite the learning experience to go from a 1962 Singer 401A to a machine that is 50 years newer with all the bells and whistles. I still use my 401A when I go to my quilt group. It is a much lighter machine to lug around than my 830. But I am getting spoiled by my 830. How did I ever live without the needle down function?

Hi - I've been hopping about some of the blogs I used to visit .. being an infrequent blogger too.
Sorry to hear about your job - that sucks.

Good to see you've channelled anger into creativity, the quilt is lovely.
