Squeee! Best Update EVER (to date)
I have some crazy awesome news! A friend over at Fandom tested out my Maggot block. It needs some more work before it get put up for submission to the website, but she sent me a picture (plus a bunch of suggestions, which I will get on this weekend). Doesn't it look great! I can't wait to make it more user friendly and fix some of the short comings! It is so amazing to see your hard work come to life! And with each one I learn something new. Thank you so much Kimberlee!
As for something new.... I have put the Crotch-less undies up. Have at them! Instructions and Pattern.
See! I can be productive with out a proper functioning sewing machine!
Okay, I finally put the first pattern up! It is the Boxers pattern on the pattern page or the direct links to the instructions and pattern.. Please feel free to download it and have fun! I hope to find the time to get the rest up some time this week. It takes me more time to create the PDFs because I have to be on my home computer to convert things, and with two small children and working full time, it is really hard to find time to hole myself up in our computer room to do so. I hope if you find the time to create this block, you will share your block when you are done!
Yeah, I am a day off, but that's okay. I had a pretty good Mother's Day. That also meant that I haven't really gotten much time to quilt. In fact, I used Mother's Day to get two things done. My sewing machine is old and needed (I thought) some oiling to keep it from doing this horrible squeaking thing it has been want to do lately. It screeches so loudly that it has startled me and I jump while sewing. Not such a great thing to have happen. I got it serviced about 2 years ago because the wheel on the side (I know, I am so technical) had seized up. I got it back and it now worked, but it was really tough moving the needle up and down with the wheel, when before it was very smooth. I don't know what is wrong, but oiling it did not make this screeching go away and I don't want it to seize up again. Worst part is I cannot sew at night because of this noise. Well, that, and I am worried it will destroy my machine.
The other thing I did yesterday was... sew. I know,…
