What Does One Do...

When one has no sewing machine? You fuse!

My machine started moaning and groaning on me. Thought I'd better take it in. Some of you may recall I had it in about 2 or 3 months ago (I think). At that time, Mr. Repairman couldn't find anything wrong with it. I'm betting he finds something now, as the motor was making noises, "fix me, fix me" it said.

So here I am today with no machine, what to do, what to do? I worked on some faces. I dyed some canvas, and other scraps. And I fused up the above postcards for valentines day. I'm thinking of adding in some hand stitching. For finishing, they'll have to wait until my machine is back home.

I was hoping to show you my new display wall that I plan to use to show off my postcard, ATC, small quiltie collection that I've gotten from various swaps. But I was in the process of sewing that when the machine when kapoooeeey. So that will have to wait.

I didn't get a precise time when my machine might be done, just one of those replies like, "we are a little backlogged, but we'll get to it as soon as we can". Ugh! I'm wondering what I will do when it comes time to make my weekly journal quilt.
