On the weekend.

I finished this quilt!

Woohoo! I got the fabrics on the front ages ago. They were the first jelly roll type thing that I ever bought, so fun. I'm not really in love with the quilt itself, for in my house. But I really like it, and I decided that it'll make a great 30th Birthday present for my sister in law. It'll look great on their grey suede couch!

I also used my new sewing machine to take in a skit this morning. It went really well, and it fits good now. And I got the chance to use the "overcasting" foot on my sewing machine. Which does the same as an overlocker, but without the cutty bit.

Because you haven't seen Amity in a while!

Aaand. Today I went to Harris Scarfe and they had a Singer overlocker for $300, save $299. I was sorely tempted to at least layby it. But I decided to wait till they open their store at Knox City, just incase they have an even crazier sale! Fingers crossed!

Anything exciting happen to anything else this weekend?

Nice quilt perhaps I should get out the one I started 24 years ago! All done by hand but very very slowly!
