Wow! It has been a whole month of blogging for me already! Woohoo! I am enjoying it soooo much! I am getting to know quite a few talented quilt bloggers from all over the world! How cool is that!!! 8-) And what is even more amazing is that I have pushed myself to be productive in my quilting journey in order to show progress on my blog!!! That alone speaks volumes!!!
I am known to be an excited quilter with starting a new project, only to become a lazy quilter with many a UFOs on the shelf! It got so bad that I promised myself not to buy any fabrics unless I really needed it! I had also cut back on buying patterns too. I did fairly well with that...the odd breakdown, but far from what I had been buying... A lot of my quilting friends were telling me how wonderful the Pfaff sewing machines were. They even teased me by letting me use a Pfaff 2046 (?) at a quilt gathering at our friend B's shop "Corellan Sewing Center". With all the bells and whistles I experienced on it, and on the others around me that night, I decided I needed a new sewing machine, but didn't deserve one until I got at least 5-6 UFOs out of my way. The gals kept saying that I would get them done much faster with a new machine, but I kept to my word. That was a year ago now. So, at the beginning of last month, with many UFOs completed, and a few "have to make gift quilts" done, my DH agreed that I should get a new machine. I had bought myself my Pfaffy 2056, and my Kenmore has been sitting on the side ever since! I have done a lot of sewing on my new machine! Love it!
So, the month of May had been a very rewarding and productive month in my mind, and I am very please with that!
I must say though, my Kenny (Kenmore Sewing Machine) had served me well for 20 years. It had seen me through many of mine and my children's outfits, and many sewing creations over the years. One day it will serve as a good starter machine for DD#2 should she decide to give sewing a try. We bought DD#1 a sewing machine for a 2004 graduation, because she was using my machine a lot.
This is one of my UFOs. My Convergence Quilt. It would take no time to finish it up, but I do have to work on the Anniversary Quilt! I need to get it done! I am procrastinating it big time!!!
