My sewing machine was acting up ,so I opened it up to clean and oil it ,but still no go ,I looked at the feed dogs and they just didn't seem to be moving as they should so......
I opened the cover underneath and looked and saw that the feed dog bearing was completely worn out ,do you see behind the white bearing it is connected to a brownish colored one which has some worn out light colored flakes on it ,that is the one . Well my husband thought that since I was able to find the cause ,I can replace it on my own ,I don't know why (he must think I am a superwoman LOL)
So we went to the Singer center just down the street from our shop and got the right part ... well I looked and it just seems that one is connected to so many other parts I called it quilts after 5 min . My husband kept saying it is nothing if he could see better he would do it ,I don't think I would let him just between you and I . So I took it in and got it yesterday Yay !!!!
Since I couldn't sew I spent my free time at home organizing my fabrics here I have all of my pretty prints ,notice how pleased my doll is .
I also worked on the teapot templates after working on the drawings !!
I had some rough sketches on a piece of paper and then redrew them and traced and cut them out with a box cutter since I am using thick matting board.
I was looking through my stash and I noticed that I had some batting scraps, they happen to be the right size for potholders so I made some.
I made 3 of them .
There is a large department store near my home I decided to go in and looked around ,it just recently opened, It is huge , I looked around and these are the only things that I found use full for me ,now the white roll is used for seams so you don't have to use a needle and thread ,sort of fusible web ,I will try it for applique.
And the little cups I thought they would be perfect for pin cushions.
And there is my little Bunt cake it looks puffy enough I think!! I am quite pleased with it ,I will be making more of these.
I had some of these spare blocks from a previous project , so I played with them ,cutting in different pieces and putting them back together sort of doing a puzzle seeing how to put them back in a way that was most appealing to the eye, notice that I used the bottom left one for the pin cushion . So that is what I have been doing,I wish all of you a nice day and to make something nice and creative . xoxo theodora
