Ahhhhhhhh......,.

H2H quilt for Camp Hobe done and off in the mail this afternoon. I feel such relief! I'm such a procrastinator. I did have trouble with the sewing machine on the quilting and binding. (Exasperating.) The thread kept breaking and the stitch length was way off. I have a shaky hand and with my eyes, makes it really hard to rethread so often. One time I got to sew for less than 2 inches! I didn't really like the fabrics I chose at first, but after I put in a few plainer color on color prints, it looked better to me.
I'll show it off on Sunday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict .
So now I'm rewarding myself with some RSC green and making another strip of geese.


 
I picked out a dark to light grade this time.
Have a great spring day... we are currently continuing the enlargement of Lake Superior.
Hugs,
Terri

  1. Congrats on finishing. I've been having thread breakage problems, too. I think my Gutterman thread isn't up to snuff (2 different spools, bought at the same time).

  2. I tossed a few spools of thread in the trash because of thread breakage. At first I thought it might be machine tension issues, but didn't have problems with other spools of thread. Felt it was bad spool of thread.
    I'm having issues with threading needles. I use needle threaders for hand sewing and my sewing machine has a needle threader on it.
