I know it's been forever since I blogged, but I finally have a chance (and power and internet :) to catch up. Due to the constant outages here in UB, my dear Randy gifted me with this marvelous Russian sewing machine for our recent 30th anniversary. This is what my students all use (note in pics) and it's amazingly precise never mind the hand wheel; and the stitch is perfect and even! It's strictly Sew and Don't Sew (a Myer-ism). Speaking of my students, check out what they've been up to! They just finished the sashing & borders on our Old Testament Bible blocks and yesterday we did kimono blocks from this book.
We all had a total blast with this one!
Last but not least...I just boxed up a sack o' doll clothes for Julia who will turn 2 on May 24th. Each granddaughter gets a Bitty Baby by American Dolls for her 1st b-day and then granny-made clothes for her 2nd. Yep, all 5 of them (and counting as we don't know what Jana's next one will be yet :) Tomorrow at midnight they will be winging their way to the US with a friend. Plugged or unplugged, sewing is such a gift, eh?
