I woke up this morning with a headache. It sucked because I was really looking forward to Sexy dress-up day. Anyways, I watched old movies and napped all day instead which was okay since it is snowing outside and cozy inside.
Once my head got better I started thinking about ways to quilt Zach's quilt. I want something that will soften the straight lines so I think I am going to do an all-over meandering pattern in the center part. I was thinking about doing a fancy free motion pattern on the border but I am not sure.
Lately I have been thinking about fabric stashing a lot. I look at blogs and envy people of there huge fabric stashes full of pretty fabric but then I think about how much they spent on that without using it and Midwestern sensibilities are offended. Why would you buy fabric without a plan? I actually have enough fabric that I should be able to quilt until the rest of Zach's schooling without buying anything other than batting and maybe backing fabric. I did buy all new stuff for Zach's quilt but I got some back pay/bonus and I decided to use the leftover money after the new sink on something I wanted.
On the sewing machine front I learned the my aunt has my grandma's sewing machine and doesn't use it. So she is going to give it to me. I am pretty excited about this because I have been using my mom's sewing machine for two years and fell guilty about it.
I also have a singer feather weight that I really want to try quilting with but the stand that it is on is so uncomfortable to sit at. I guess I am taller than the average woman in the 1930s.
