Fiber Tuesday 31

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday! Busy weekend in the quilting room this weekend, sadly no quilting took place.  If you've missed it the other 1000 times I've mentioned it my step son is getting married in November.  I spent this weekend altering the wedding dress.  It is an interesting thing to do tedious sewing with a four and a two year old under foot.  I finally had to clear the house out.  I sent the bride and groom off to visit with grandparents and my husband and the grand kids off to the park to play.  I was so thankful for some peace and quite.  I'm bummed I didn't think to get pictures though.  I altered the dress on a vintage Kenmore 950.

Fiber Tuesday Link Party for all fiber crafts
I shared the story of Myra's vintage sewing machine that she turned into a long arm quilting machine. 

I shared how to make a twisted log cabin block.  It will be featured in a project next week, fingers crossed.

I also demonstrated the National Two Spool sewing machine.  I really wish I knew how to get ahold of Janome, who bought National so in theory owns the patent, because hubby is sure you could make a modern machine that held a whole spool as the bobbin.

This morning I did a round up of 13 sewing projects you can do between now and Christmas.

Show me what you've been up to!!
I've made a Pinterest board to share all of the wonderful things you guys are sharing.  I'm also sharing them on Facebook.  I hope that my sharing is bringing you lots of traffic.  Now for the most viewed link last week:

This quilt is happy.  I really do think that quilts show emotions and this one just screams happy to me.  I wanted to show you all the back, it's so much fun too! Thanks for linking up!
