What fun working with spring colors! I'll start sewing the blocks together today, I hope. Then there's applique in the border, a first for me, but something I've been wanting to try.
I'll also spend time checking out sewing machines. I've just about decided what I want and now it's down to price, dealer and location. If I take the plunge and buy an expensive new machine, I hope it improves my work as much as I think it might. Right now I'm sewing on an older machine with no needle down, thread cutter, knee lift, or decorative stitches of any kind and only six and half inches of throat space. Throat space and needle down are tops on my list. Any sewing machine advice is very welcome!
Decision making is hard and I've been known to just keep putting off purchases because of it. Like right now, I need a new rug and bedskirt for the bedroom, a new vacuum cleaner, possibly a new couch, and two chairs that need to be reupholstered or slip covered. And I've put all these things off till I really need it all done at once, which gets overwhelming and too expensive to contemplate. Oh, and I've had a prescription for new glasses since October but can't get around to picking out frames so I'm still wearing the old ones with a scratched lens that I stepped on two years ago!
Well, don't procrastinate about going over to Patchwork Times and checking out all the other Design Wall Monday posts. There's some really gorgeous work this week!
