Then this afternoon I decided to have a play with the machine, now that it is encased in it,s new housing.
When I went to Australia the first time I made my S I L a set of 8 table mats using a novelty block that I found on line somewhere.
I have been doodling trying to recreate it, the results are here.
All cut and part sewn together.
The last sections.
Close but the ones that I made were not so elongated, I will not waste these but will have another try tomorrow.
I did make 4 strips but managed to cut the fourth in the wrong place so it has gone in the scrap bag. This will be a cat bed once I have bound it. I will take it down to Maggie once finished, she has 4 cats and they will just about fit on here.
It is a bit strange sewing at the moment, with the side table up I seem to be forever banging my elbow but I will soon get used to it. It certainly is lovely sewing with all that flat space, there is plenty of room for my biggest cutting mat as well. I could in theory have a small ironing station there as well but have my board set up away so that I have to get up and move a bit. I don't want to take root.
The even feed system is so smooth, I am going to try quilting some Minky soon, my other machines would not have it at any price. It is perfect for baby quilts, so soft and snuggly.
I did not do a long walk today, I overdid it yesterday, but tomorrow I really want to explore the new found footpath.
Any how I am cutting this short as I have just noticed that it is tomorrow already.
