Never listen to anybody talk about sewing machines that doesn’t know where the bobbin case is. I sent a lady on ebay a picture of what the bobbin case should look like because she couldn’t get any pictures to upload to send to me. She said it did and that all the parts were there. I placed a bid. Today, she sent me a photo and it looks like the bobbin area of the machine sat in the mud for many years. I am very unhappy and am praying for someone to outbid me. What a mess. Shame on me for being trusting. Every time I do that, I get burned and swear I won’t do it again.
But, I do.
We went to an estate sale, where I offended the lady running it by offering her what I thought something was worth. She actually got upset, but all I did was offer what I was willing to pay for it, no reason to be upset, just tell me no and make a counter-offer. Oh, well. We did get this great coffeepot. We collect the cornflower blue corningware because it reminds us of our childhoods. We have the coffeepot in this size.
But it percolates on the stove.
The new one has an electric heating element. It is very cool and works quite well and get hot and percolating very quickly. A good gamble for $4 on whether it would work. It took a couple of tries, but I got a really good cuppa out of it yesterday.
I am quilting huge feathers into a Linus quilt.
You should be able to see better if you click and enlarge that. I’ve tried to see how small I can make a feather. Now, I’m trying to see how large. Changing the size really changes the skills required to quilt. Instead of it all being readily visible near the needle, big feathers mean looking all around and trying to end up with things that look like feathers and not like toes.
And, I got the first two miniature cabinets made for the dollhouse.
The camera makes them look green, but they’re really off white. I may remake the doors. This morning, I thought of ways I could definitely do better. But, even if I don’t, these will certainly work for what I need them to do.
Okay, off for a bit of watering and then to the office. Another day, another dollar and a half.
Be well and have a great Monday.
