That sigh is because of my busy day! Here's what I started with: quilting the dye painted pear. One big OOPS I noticed is that I put the shadow on the wrong side - it should be casting to the left. Oh well. It's just an experiment.
Here's a closer look. I used threads that were brown, rust, orange, and lime green. Click to see it closer. I'm glad I quilted it, but I don't really like it. I'm glad I didn't spend much time on it. My favorite part is the background quilting. Maybe I'll add another layer of paint? Or maybe just toss it? Hmmm.
Next on my list today was to drive this baby (purchased a couple of years ago at an estate sale) clear across town to a repair shop. I plugged it in a few days ago and cleaned the lint from under the throat plate. But I could tell it needs a good going over by an expert. There's a man who routinely services and repairs these old Featherweights - it took me some time to find his shop, but I did. He said he'd have it ready in a few days.
Then I ran a few more errands, went to a lunch meeting (my favorite kind of meeting). Back at home I love on Mickey for a bit, then cut out a quilt and cooked supper, to be devoured soon. Whew!
