My last retreat finish was a table topper. The pattern, Center Piece, is from Pieced Tree. A bit of a bummer that the kit didn’t come with quite enough fabric, but with Mom’s help I was able to make do. The backing is the light green fabric with red trim. Very vintage.
I started another UFO Sunday morning but was quickly thwarted by my damn machine. Boy is Lennie the Featherweight in deep horse puckey. Can you tell I’m still a tad put out? I’ve narrowed it down to a stray thread in the bobbin housing but haven’t worked up the nerve to take it apart. Best to leave that for home where I can curse properly and with reckless abandon.
I did get one block finished just to see what’s what. The pattern is called A Mexican Mystery. The block is Mexican Cross.
I guess three out of six completed UFOs isn’t bad for two solid days hunched over an ungrateful piece of metal. With my free time today I think I’ll devise some sort of torture for my bellicose machine.
