Fun and productive week here! On Thursday I took an online Embroidery Garden class to make a small Sewing Organizer. It probably took me longer to pick and cut the fabrics than to make it. Embroidery Garden is an online source of digital embroidery files. They are well known for their wonderful In The Hoop designs.
I spent part of Wednesday and Thursday preparing for the class. The directions specified having all pieces cut and marked with letters before the beginning of class. So, I got the fabric ironed, cut, and labeled and put them in order of use. And then turned on the computer and Zoomed into class. I was doing great until I had a nest from the bobbin at step 7 or so.
I hadn't been particularly pleased with the bobbin but I thought it was because of the slippery thread I used in it. But just to make sure I pulled out my machine instruction book: I was winding the bobbin incorrectly! (I've had the machine for almost 2 years! Who knew?)
This design is only available if you take the class at Embroidery Garden. They also have great designs you might like to try on your own.
That's it for today. I've had a great week and will be sharing more project statuses either Tuesday or probably, Wednesday. For now, I'm linking up with my Monday regulars: Oh Scrap, Monday Making and Design Wall Monday. I hope you take some time to visit these three blogs and then see where they will lead you.
By the way, whenever I mention a product, it is because I've bought it and used it. (For instance, the cute Sewing Organizer from EG.) I do not monetize my blog -- it really is just a record of what I've been doing recently and a way to stay motivated to start and finish projects.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
