Some progress
The Weekend In Review

WIP: Found

The biggest work in progress is still cleaning.  I started in the sewing room this morning and, what do you know, I found the missing presser feet!


Now that I have that mystery solved, it is time to get it all sparkling clean.  I started with my machine.  Do you ever clean your own machine?  Every time I take the plate off, I am amazed at the amount of fuzzy dust in there.  Now, don't misunderstand...I won't go near the mechanics of my precious machine.  I do get it serviced and oiled about once a year by a professional.  When I bought my machine, though, the first thing I was taught was how to keep the bobbin compartment clean.  I had never, ever thought about that before.  It turns out that keeping all that fabric dust out of there really helps reduce broken needles and other tension issues.  Who knew?  Not me!

Once I got the machine cleaned, I started in on the fabric.  I didn't make much headway so I think it is going to be my weekend project.  I have good incentive - these strips are just waiting to be turned into belts.


I am looking forward to the weekend....some cleaning, some sewing, some reading and a date with Fatty.  A movie and sushi, I think.  Sounds good to me!

Sushi, yum my favourite. Have a nice date. I love the material, can't wait to see the completed project. Have a great weekend!


Glad you finally found the presser feet. And I'm glad that you posted the WIP belts, too - the fabrics and combinations are fabulous. Enjoy the weekend, and the date!


Sou glad you fouind your missing feet! I tend to lose mine from time to time, especially with too much going on. Those strips of fabric look so pretty together. Have a great weekend!


Yay for missing feet! And those fabrics look perfect pieced together like that!


sometimes cleqaning the sewing room can be like a treasure hunt! i found three pieces i had TOTALLY forgotten about last weekend. love them! plus, it feels good to get it all done. love the belts...they are too cool!


missing presser feet - i so (sew?) relate!

those strips look amazing.


what kind of sewing machine do you have? i have a bernina and according to the people at my dealership, there will be lots of fuzz with "american thread" (coats & clark, etc.) and less with "european thread" because that's what the machine is calibrated for. it does seem to be true - i was out of mettler and guterman thread and had to use the coats and clark and there was fuzz everywhere.
