We signed up for a full day class at It's Sew Time, in Elmsdale, to finally learn how to play with the circle attachments added to my
arsenal of weapons toolbox back at Christmas time. And learn we did. Not only did I figure out how to twirl away in circle-y glee I also learned how-not-to install my zipper foot, how to sew in a normal zipper with the whirlygig thingy and how slick putting in invisible zippers can be with a fancy little foot from Pfaff. All this and about another gazillion things about my Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.2 that I never knew for 35 bucks and some gas. I rarely take classes...too busy, too expensive, too far, too whatever-excuse-fits...though as proven on Monday, I clearly should take more! Classes are good!
We made these little sewing cases as a way to learn all these new skills. Figuring out the spacing for the lettering took a long time, the rest was simpler. Sort of.
There are zippers and pockets on this wee thing too...it's actually kinda cute. I am seriously crushing on the interior fabric, a new FQ addition picked up at my LQS on Saturday. (Could. Not. Wait. To. Use. It. Must. Buy. More...MUCH. MORE.)
Look at my pockets all matched up & fabulous...you know how I am about matching prints, remember the elephants?
In BIGGER news, there's a lil reno happening in my quilty corner. A giant wiggler is coming to nest here and these doors had to go to free up the floorspace. My most awesome husband and my son are working away to get things ready for the arrival of my brand spankin' new Pfaff 18.8 long arm.
More on that later...
(Pst... It's a robot. I've always wanted a robot.)
