I keep wanting to draw hearts as I'm stitching. What other shapes could I work in there? A cat silhouette would be cute, but seeing as how I can't even draw one with a pencil, drawing one with the machine is probably out.
That's the last frontier! I am 11/14 of the way through it! And it's still rectangular! WooHoo!
I discovered one more tool that is absolutely essential to making a quilt: an air conditioner. Big thanks to my Ger Bear for quickly seeing to my comfort when I started complaining about my sweltering hot sewing room.
ALSO! Thanks for the sneaker suggestions! I actually have a pair of Simple sneaks, but I'm not a huge fan. I like the company's philosophy and everything, but the soles just aren't holding up very well. Disappointing, because they were pretty spendy. I'd never thought of Vans, but that's a great suggestion! I'm going to seek some out and try them on for size. Also, did anyone see the new British Prime Minister's wife rocking the Converse? Maybe I'll stick with them a little longer. :-)
