Husqvarna Jade & Some Fabric Stash Goodies


The extension table arrived for my new Husqvarna Jade and I couldn't be more excited. The purchase also included piecing needles & multicolored bobbins. I cannot wait to dig into projects with this lovely machine.

I came across some Judie Rothermel (Oooh, she's my FAVORITE fabric designer ever!) fabrics recently and was thrilled to find some black prints. I haven't used 30s that read black in the Dear Jane yet and think I may have enough to incorporate them a bit in the finished quilt...more on that later.

I'm expecting a package soon of some 30s reproduction fabrics and the waiting is so difficult! Since Erica's in South Bend closed, I haven't been able to find a replacement shop. I've tried, believe me, but nothing is like Erica's. I think I'll have to take a drive on a sunny day out to Shipshewana soon to get some more basic supplies. Fingers crossed Yoders and Lolly's can meet some of my needs in person because online selections are limited. 

I hope you're having a beautiful day.




A Long Lapse in Time

I know it's been a terribly long time since last posting. The first project off my list: a mask. It needs some work but for a sample and the chance to try to sew again, not terribly shabby.

The sewing room has sat dormant for a very long time. In the meantime, there has been a bit of an update and I'm looking forward to filling the new cubbies with some delicious fabrics very soon. If anyone has some leads on 30s reproduction prints --- I suppose they've fallen out of fashion but still love the bright fun colors and lovely little prints --- I'd appreciate your help. Dear Jane has popped back into my thoughts as of late. It's been so long, I've even considered making a second while putting the first together...just thoughts, no definite plans, mind you.
