March 18th, 2018 - Nothing New

Happy International Quilting Day, a day late! Just a quick post. I got my sewing machine back. From being deemed “not worth fixing”  with the repairs being around $1000- US and “you should just buy a new one”,  my machine was up and running for the tune of $200- Canadian. I think I’m going to email Bernina about that store’s manner of doing business. On the other hand, the shop where I got my machine fixed was amazing. The store owner was so great about the whole machine thing. I would recommend Hyggeligt Fabrics in St Mary’s ON to everyone. And it’s a real cute shop too. Loads of Kaffe Fassett and Liberty of London  fabrics. Plus Bernina machines that are now on my wish list.

When I got home on Friday evening with my machine, I set it up and started on a quilt top that I’m kind of in a hurry to get done. I stayed up until 4:45 am and finished the top. And my machine was stitching away, working just fine! Today, I’m heading over to my friend’s house to put it on the longarm and get it done.

Now for some numbers.

Fabric used this week: 21:45 yards there’s 5 backs in there

Fabric used YTD: 63.57 yards

Fabric added this week: 0 yards

Fabric added YTD: 70.14 yards

Net fabric busted: -6.57 yards

Next week, that negative number better be in the positives as I will be making more backs and doing some quilting on my machine. And the number of hours quilting will be amazing too. Last week I managed to sew for 27.5 hours. I made 2 quilt tops and added borders to a table runner/wall hanging in that time. I will post pictures when I’m done quilting these items.

I’m linking up with Kate at Life in Pieces for 15 Minutes to Stitch and Donna at QuiltPaintCreate for my stash busting report. Enjoy your week!

    […] No fabric in this week. We went to the thrift yesterday, but I only bought a shirt pattern for $0.25. It wasn’t enough to change my spending total. I also picked up a set of Crab-apple Hill patterns off the free table at guild. I love all their patterns, but don’t buy them often. I’m very grateful for the generosity of others. I had usage with the scrappy bird finish. I need to finish bigger projects over the next few months because I know there will be fabric adds this summer. Fabric In: 2.5 yards Fabric Out: 1.875 yards Net Fabric Added: 0.625 yard Quilt & embroidery spending: $15 How did you do this week? 1 Julie in GA 2 maggie f 3 Meloney 4 Melanie 5 Quilting Gail 6 Mary-Kay […]

    Glad you were able to get your machine fixed. That’s quite a marathon sewing session! Good luck with all your stitching plans for this week. Thanks for linking up to the 15 Minutes to Stitch.

    I’m so impressed by your usage this week, and jealous of the hours of sewing you got to do. I usually have to be happy with ten this year. Thanks for sharing your progress. It’s encouraging.
