I posted here on Sunday that my mother foisted a perfectly good Janome Memory Craft 3000 onto yours truly. I sincerely hope she sends more of her awesome quilting detritus my way as I have more than suitable home for all of it. Are you listening, ma?!
Anyhow, the Janome now has a name, Captain Jack (I love you Johnny Depp!) and Lennie the Featherweight is none too pleased as he’s currently residing on the floor while I have my way with The Captain. Jack has a lot in common with Somebody’s Brother, only the SB lasted a few short rounds and then it was lights out, toes up and hello Sewing Machine heaven. I’ve already made up my mind that Jack will be strictly for free motion quilting since I love the stitch I get from Lennie, but the whole FMQ on a domestic machine is giving me hives. I assumed, and you know what they say about THAT, FMQ on a domestic was akin to FMQ on a longarm. Stop laughing. I swear I don’t know how people FMQ on a domestic machine. Tell me it gets better. Lie if you must.
I’ve probably already shown you the meandering picture, but…
Then there’s the rocks/pebbles/yes, that’s a feather trial run…
I don’t concentrate on anything this hard unless I’m trying not to fart in public.
Should it really be this difficult? Tell me it gets easier.
