the HQ16 machine is back up and running smoothly! What’s crazy is that I didn’t really do anything to it other than rethread the needle several times. Tension is soooo sensitive when one switches threads on her.
I have about 1/4 of Wanda’s quilt done. Maybe Friday I can finish it and get it squared up and ready to bind for her.
I’ve cut up a bunch more 5″ squares for some donation quilts. Still have a few more fabrics that I want to add to this bunch….straight sewing and mindless work. Should go together quickly when I get the old Singer treadle machine humming. It’s quiet enough that I can sew in the Living Room while watching and hearing the TV.
Ernie planted all the tomatoes and added some Mammoth Sunflowers to the Daffodil and Day Lily area. While he was weeding and watering, he found about 5 or 6 more asparagus plants that are up and making ferns. There are only 2 stalks right now. I think we’re getting too warm for them to make edible parts.
Getting excited as we’re now into May. Daughter and her family coming to visit in June ginving us our first in person glimpse of new Great Grandson!
