While moving things around in the basement I pulled out my new sewing table I won a couple months ago and decided to rearrange my quilt room…….again. I took down the cutting table (I’ll use my counter top like I used to) and the table behind my Singer.
Then I put my 401A Singer behind my favorite 15-91 workhorse. The 401A has a nice stitch and cams for zig-zag. I haven’t had a place to set it up for awhile and decided it was time to get it out again.
My 15-91 Singer is finally getting a new foot pedal! The wiring was very old and original and my machine kept heating up when I was free motion quilting…..Builder Bob said the rheostat was bad so I ordered a new foot. He’ll be putting it on today. If you notice the 401A is slightly taller so I am going to have him cut the legs down a little to make it the same height as my 15-91 and I’ll be able to drop it and use the table for a surface when I free motion quilt.
My design wall is pretty skimpy this week. I worked on some more free motion appliqued flowers.
This one will be a small 12 inch mini. I am going to pick up my grandson today as he is on Spring Break and he’ll help me paint some walls in the basement and then we’re going to play with the crayon melting book that Kiera sent me. At least that is the plan but who knows! He’ll probably “make” me play some video games too.
Builder Bob is working on his kitchen, our basement isn’t fancy, it is actually a basement/garage as our house is right on the river and the actual living space is elevated in case of flooding. It will actually be his “party” room. The new bathroom is on the other side of the wall by his assistant……Simon.
