This and That....

 We've had some beautiful chilly sunny mornings 

so it's been nice to be in my warm Cave and sew .....
 



making shields for  "Days for Girls"



getting bindings ready to sew onto the two quilts that I picked up on Saturday



also sewing pieces of wadding together and cutting with  backing to make QAYG blocks when I go to Stay at Home Retreat this weekend,

 





and after all the wadding sewing the machine needed a good clean. a little oil and a new needle. 




Does sounds smoother and quieter .. Why do we leave doing a service so long between each one !!!!!



 
Okay must away and start packing my box for the weekend before anymore sewing..


Take care all and stay well

Hugs  Maria ❤

  1. Yep, mine is also very messy when I get around to it. When I turn the machine on I just want to sew not spend an hour cleaning. Well done to you.

  4. Pretty bindings for those quilts--and I have finally written on my calendar to clean my machine every 4-5 months-- and it's so much better than trying to remember--when--did I do it last time--!!!
    keep warm--luv, di

  6. Cleaning the machine is a bit like changing the blade on a rotary cutter....for the little time that it takes but what a difference in their performance. Enjoy your Stay at Home retreat.

  7. It's always good to have the bindings ready to go. And you reminded me, I must drop my machine off for its annual service, now would because goid time as I'm in "recovery mode" from my surgery.

  9. My machine looked like that recently too. Have fun with your QAYG. Your machine will need another clean out at the end of the weekend.

  14. I think I clean my machine quite frequently, but I'm always amazed by the dust inside! I admire your dedication to the Days for Girls project.
