TTMT Video

TTMT #4 May 21, 2019. Shelves are up & sewing room is coming together at last.

I made this video on Wednesday. For some reason half way through, the video becomes out of sync with my voice, so please forgive the irritating Japanese dubbed video. LOL. I didn’t have time for a redo. The sewing room is coming together. I can actually put my legs under the cutting table. My goal is to finish the Accordion Carpenters Wheel. I want it as a wall hanging so I am only going to add a small border. It is bigger than It thought it would be.

I have my work cut out for me. I want to cut down all those scraps. I will get more done if I do. I used up a great deal of my previous scraps as leaders and enders. It is time to replenish. I just have to consider cutting them up just as important as sewing. I also want to make some clothes for myself and my granddaughter.

Happy Memorial day weekend. Enjoy your families and friends.

  1. Thank you. I can’t wait to start sewing again. So many things on my bucket list that I can do with these scraps. Also want to make charity quilts for the guild I belong to.

  2. That accordion thing looks interesting. I went and watched a couple of her videos on YouTube.. seems like a good idea if you are looking for something scrappy. Your purple/green version of the star is really beautiful.

    Good luck with the continued cleaning/organizing!

    1. Thank you. I want to get her book “Oompah” I want to know how she figures out the placement. Must be graph paper.

  3. Your room is looking great and your Carpenter’s Wheel is lovely. I love the colors.

    I couldn’t help but notice your Singer 301. I have the same machine. My sweet grandma gave it to me years ago. It had belonged to her best friend. It’s one of my treasures!

    1. I got the 301a for $30 at a flea market. Cleaned it up and it works fantastic. Only thing missing is the pedal but I use the one from my featherweight. Poor featherweights motor is dying.
      Hoping to sew tomorrow. First order of business is to make a lawn mower bag. I have no idea how to make it but will give it a shot!

  4. Your room looks awesome! Shara was so smart to figure out where your quilt project was. I would have been just like you, looking everywhere and not finding it.

  5. Your carpenter’s wheel looks amazing. And your room looks like it is really coming together. My scrap bins are overflowing as well. That’s why I’m going to cut up a bunch of them I think. We have a lady in our Project Linus group that makes these really amazing chromatic gradation type of QAYG projects that are teen sized from scraps, so I was thinking I could give her a pile of 2.5″ squares.

    I have a Singer 301 also, mine is the 2-tone tan/oyster. I did some of my first FMQ on that machine and it’s my back up machine when I travel. I love it to pieces! They are great machines. I had trouble with the toe pedal so I bought a replacement pedal that works great from sewingpartsonline.com

  6. Gorgeous Carpenter Wheel. I really like purples and greens together.

    The shelf looks nice. It’s always a huge task to get organized. It looks like the room is coming together.

    Happy Crafting
