I have been stewing about my mid-arm not preforming as well as it should…Hubby’s advice was to leave it alone and give it a four month rest…
WHAT? And stew about it for FOUR long months?
So yesterday morning I gave her new thread, new needle, a dusting and oiling, gave her a few loving strokes and a pep talk and started a sampler…and low and behold… she purred like a kitten!! Eureka…before she changed her mind, I put on a small quilt top that I really wanted quilted…and flew at it!! She went through it like butter…Done! No fuss, no muss…and no issues!!
Here are the two finishes so far…note the binding got put on last night!! The top white quilt was the one where I had ‘issues’ but not the green one!
Oh man, that felt so good that I just HAD to try another…so in the afternoon I did the same things…new needle, same thread, a dusting and oiling…the same loving strokes and pep talk and flew at another small quilt…this time the wee bowtie quilt (you might remember the Bonnie Hunter Bowtie Challenge…yup, this little guy has been hanging around for a while!)…and PRESTO, she’s DONE!! I’m in heaven!! Merry Christmas to ME!!
NOW my mid-arm can have her well deserved four month rest and mama won’t be stewing about anything!! All is right with the world!!
No sewing today…it’s time for Family and Christmas…a little early but much needed!
Have a great day!!~P
