In which I talk about (finally) quilting up all my long-languishing Project Linus tops, including those from others, with my HandiQuilter Moxie. The top you see loaded on my frame was made by fellow TTMTer Sarah in Houston. You did a great job Sarah, it’s beautiful! Stay crafty y’all!
Jeanie, I hope your surgery goes well and you are quickly on the path to smelling the roses. 🙂 We love you!
This week I talk about having my longarm machine Millie serviced. She is good to go with normal oiling and dusting. She will be getting a few new items soon. I currently have another practice piece on the machine for practicing feathers ruler work and more. I also share the wall hanging I recently received from Jennifer Ofenstein with her April give away drawing. Let’s go sew!
In which I quickly talk about what I’ve been up to in the Project Room, and change the point of view. I apologize for the weird angle. I was in a hurry to set up and in the process broke my tripod, so I stacked the camera on top of several things and thought I had it high enough… OOPS!
In which I take five minutes from my crazy week to catch up with y’all. ❤️
I’ll be taking the next few weeks off from Fandom in Stitches. If you need help during that time, please reach out to our FiS Facebook Group. The moderators and group members are an endless resource of good information and support. The Great Pumpkin Quilt Along will continue as scheduled, but there will be fewer posts in general as we transition to our new home.
Endodontist last Thursday determined that the molar must come out. He referred me back to my dentist, who is closed on Fridays, so Monday she referred me to an oral surgeon, who I had actually seen before and, surprisingly, he still had my records from removing an impacted wisdom tooth in 2000. They got me in the next morning and, even though I couldn’t open my mouth enough to put even 2 of my own fingers in, he managed to get the tooth out (and QUICKLY!) using only local anesthetic. That being said, the reason I couldn’t open my mouth was a little more disturbing: the infection was in my jaw muscle in addition to my jaw. And since I was already on day 9 of the penicillin I was prescribed the previous week, he switched me to a stronger antibiotic for another week to try to kill off this infection. Healing has begun. K and Miss P went to the grocery store and bought me copious amounts of greek yogurt and applesauce to get through the first few days while I work my way back up to soup and homemade mashed potatoes. I’m back at work for a few hours a day and actually used my iron AND my cricut yesterday. I didn’t manage to get Dinos visit Beartown bound to turn in at our May Project Linus meeting this weekend, but I do have 2 quilts from Jennifer O, the last 2 she quilted before taking apart her quilting setup for packing and moving. I’ll get those labeled and measured today so they are ready to turn in tomorrow, and if I can manage it this morning I’ve got a litte cricut project in preparation for Project Linus tomorrow. I’ll save that so I have something to show in next week’s video. Hopefully by then my mouth will be opening a little wider and it won’t be so difficult to understand what I’m saying. It’s hard to enunciate and control your lisp when you can’t open your mouth properly.
I hope y’all and yours are well and you have time to be at least a little crafty this week.
