I call this my runaway runner because it’s been hiding from me for about three years. Poor orphan that I’ve neglected. When Christmas was over I decided to begin spring cleaning and the first place I started was my bedroom closet. The most “stuff” that was pulled out of there was quilting related. Can any of you relate? My lovely runner was so far along in completing, I chose it first. The runner was completely sewn and already adhered to the batting and backing with 505 Spray & Fix. I love that stuff! No pins of any kind, no baste stitching, just 505!

Confessions of a Broken Sewing Machine

My sewing machine is broken. I’ve “fixed” it twice now, but each time it breaks again. It’s not allowing me to “fix” it this time. This leaves me with the biggest urge to sew that I’ve ever had. I think things always work like that. What “they” say is true: you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. I could take it in to get fixed, but I’m stubborn and believe wholeheartedly that it will magically work one day. Please come back to me sewing machine… I miss you.
