Another month, flown by in the blink of an eye!
The original quilting machine and set up have left the building! We get our living room back and a new quilter begins her journey. Win-Win!
Although purchased in October 2016, the new machine and shorter frame in my dedicated sewing room has been set up since April 2017. I promised myself not to use it until the original was sold. I kept that promise.
Now I’m almost ready for a “Quilt Fest”!
The past few weeks I’ve been scrambling to get quilts done, to cover Veterans at our upcoming American Legion Post’s Christmas party in December. I’m on my 4th top and a friend is also making one for the cause. Soon I will have a quilt fest and get them all quilted using my new machine! I can hardly wait!
In October, I made another promise to myself… from now on I will make at least one Veteran’s quilt a month. I then will have spares for new members, or current members that come back to a meeting! Not to mention all the veterans in Lampasas County and beyond who need to be covered!
Because winter is coming, it will be an easy promise to keep. Maybe I can even push it to get more than one done per month, to carry me over the spring when it’s time to get back to yard work, and keeping chickens!
