Life has been quite hectic lately and every minute seems to be over-committed and over-scheduled to the point where I was getting totally claustrophobic. My plan for this weekend is to spend some quality time in my sewing room. It's been a long time. It's gotten off to a good start.
When I got home today, I pieced the back for the BQ quilt that's been on my UFO waiting list forever. Then I got it all ironed and loaded on the frame ready to quilt. It's all ready to go and I'll start on it first thing in the morning when I am fresh. I was beginning to think this quilt would never get finished, but here I am ...... actually doing it. Finally!
This will be my second quilt since I got my machine fixed. I'm still a little hesitant, but after this one, I think I'll have my confidence back in my machine and feel more comfortable quilting again.
Since the machine was fixed, I have changed to King Tut thread. It took a bit to get the tension set, but it seems to be working well. The King Tut thread has a lot less lint than the thread I used to use. Now that I am happy with the thread, I've decided to go ahead and place an order. I did that today, so for now (at least until my order comes), I only have one cone of green thread, and that means I can only do quilts that this thread can be used on. I hope that the new thread comes in quickly.
I'll have to go through my other UFO quilts to see which others can be quilted with this thread. I know I have at least one, but it will be tight to get it to fit on my quilting frame and I may even have to piece the batting, which I am not very good at. The back for it is not complete either, but I suppose I could get that done as well. I just have to push myself. I need to have a sense of accomplishment this weekend.
We'll see how that goes.
