Today was a beautiful spring day, so I took a lovely drive north to Story City and Antiques Iowa, where I have a booth. I made quick work of re-stocking then meandered through part of the mall to see if there was anything that really needed to come with me. Naturally, there was. However, I exercised extreme discipline and only purchased a few select items, including these two quilt blocks:
And speaking of rescues, my sewing machine is back where it belongs today. In February, I took it in for service because the needle position was stuck on the left side. That issue was fixed the same day. When I brought it home, thread was getting stuck in the bobbin like nobody's business...so back to the shop. Because sewing machine repair places guarantee their work with a 90-day warranty. Apparently that also means that "warranty work" might take nearly 90 days. And here's the kicker: now it only sews a straight stitch! BUT, that's okay, because that's all I need to make a quilt, right? And also because I'm not going to let it out of the house again!
