This and That

I haven’t spent time in the sewing studio…not a lot anyway.  So I do not have a lot to share.

I have pieced a backing for the Lets Sew Quilt Along quilt.  I don’t have a photo of the backing, but here is a reminder of the flimsy:

I have added borders to the Squared Away Sampler from RSC18:

Many moons ago (many, many, many), I created a stitch reference book for my Bernina 1530.  The book became a very useful too, and I used it quite often.

When I got the Janome 6500, I thought to do the same.  However, I only thought about it and never got around to actually doing it.

I finally decided to make the time to create the book.  I am learning about the machine’s capabilities, and becoming much more familiar and comfortable with the machine. 

Not all stitches resemble what is shown in the manual!  For this reason alone, it is worth the effort!

Why didn’t I take the time to do this sooner?!

I have eight pages stitched out.  I have yet to stitch the buttonholes and letters.

When I am finished, I will create a book with the pages and keep it close to the sewing machine.

Have you created a stitch reference book for your sewing machine(s)?
