(Just to let you know, my camera is M.I.A. I think my mom might have grabbed it – you see we have the same camera – so all photos courtesy of my phone…which for a phone aren’t too bad! and I suppose I could alter them with my mad photoshop skills – but I’ll leave you with the Straight Out of the Camera shots…although I did crop…so I maybe they’re not SOC after all!)
1. A Spanish Dictionary:
I suppose an English Dictionary or a English to Spanish Dictionary or a phone book or thesaurus or other large book would also work!
I guess I shouldn’t assume you are all short like me and need a bit of a boost to sit comfortably at your sewing machine. Okay – fine! For all you tall freaks, you can leave this out.
And I suppose that some people might have a chair that is better than a folding chair at their sewing table – a chair that is the right height or that adjusts. Well – lucky you!
2. A Pair of Quilting Gloves
I got mine at a local quilt shop. I could have ordered them from one of my distributors – but I needed them NOW. I was surprised at the difference they really do make! Thanks, Linda for recommending them!
3. A Free Motion Foot
I opted for the spring loaded kind. The lady at my sewing machine shop recommended it…probably because it cost more money. (only joking! I think her advice is pretty good )
So there ya go! I am so glad I’m forcing myself to do something outside of my normal sewing comfort zone. It is NOT perfect – far far from it. But I am learning and enjoying the process. Plus I know that my family will enjoy it come Christmas. I hope to do the big reveal on March 21st (it may not be until 11:59pm) because that is National Quilting Day. See you again soon!
