600

Six Hundred?????



SIX HUNDRED!!!!!!!!!

I was intimidated when I saw that this morning. 600 half triangle squares that finish at 1.5 inches.

But, when I started cutting and sewing, they really went fast. Love that easy angle ruler. And, I pressed my strips together before cutting the triangles and that makes them cling to one another and so much easier to handle.




I'm at approximately 330 now. And, I haven't been working at them very long.

I spent most of the day putting that white featherweight back together. It went perfect! It's almost silent and makes a beautiful stitch. Next, the case. There's some repair work there and then I hope to move that to someone that will love it.

And, I think I might have thought of someone to sell that serger to. It was too good a deal to pass up and I've been waiting for someone to come along that needs one and I can give that great deal to.

Today was Sydney's first day of holiday break and she and I went to do a bit of shopping and then out to a lunch, just us. We had a really nice time and she picked up a few crafty things so that she'll have stuff to do other than watch TV and play video games while she's out of school.

Hope you had a great Friday. I'm off to bed so I can get up early and whip out those other TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY half triangle squares.

Hey Lane,

Did I read that correctly - you're wanting to SELL the white featherweight???

If so, I have a buyer in mind - ME!

If not, enjoy that beauty and her perfect stitch.

Cheers,

Leah

That is a lot of half square triangles. I would be a bit over whelmed as well. Glad Sydney got some crafty things to do while she is on break. Good to be busy and not watch too much TV. Have a Holy Happy Christmas.

I have a white FW I never use and a 1937 ScrollFace black FW that I use all the time. The white one is slow...I think the new belt is too tight.
