I'm a Slow Quilter

I think I must be a slow quilter or I get bored easily or my eyes can't take the strain or.....anyways those are my excuses for still working on the zigzag quilt. I try to work on it each night for half an hour to an hour when I get home from work.

Here's another hint for our 100th blog post giveaway! Keep your eyes peeled.





When I took a break yesterday I decided to make something I have wanted to make since seeing this post. I made myself a sewing machine!


Well not a real one and not the same as the one in the tutorial. I didn't have the pieces she used and I wasn't going to buy a kit for one piece so I improvised. Mine turned out more like a vintage machine with a fly wheel.

Hers....

Honestly that is the pattern on my counter top not dust!


I went to google images to find other Lego sewing machines and this is my favourite. Check out the spool of thread.
