Fiber Tuesday 47

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day and if you had a three day weekend that you got to spend it sewing.  I lucked out and got a four day weekend.  Even better I got to have dinner with the grandbabies Friday night and lunch on Sunday.  It's also sounding like the third grandbaby will be here soon so I spent today working on a baby blanket.  It will be OK if I don't get it done because Grandpa has two done.  Yep, he is showing me up.

Fiber Tuesday Link Party for all fiber crafts
This post may contain affiliate links.  Ordering from my links cost you nothing and adds a few pennies to the fabric budget.

I got back into the swing of doing videos.  This week's video my husband made his on camera debut and helped show off the machine.  Treadle sewing isn't my strong suit and he is excellent at it.  He even does a little free motion quilting at the end of the video.

This morning I introduced the two newest members of our sewing machine herd.  We got a New Home ACH Type F and an Anker RZ machine.

Show me what you've been up to!!
Don't forget to follow the Pinterest board.

Our Top Viewed Link Was:
Chain Piecing
Love Quilting showed us how to chain piece our quilting this week.  If you aren't chain piecing you really should be.  It makes life so much easier.  When I was checking out all the links this week, adding them to the scheduler for Pinterest, I had to smile when I saw all the comments from others who link up here.  Thank you for doing that and I hope you all are enjoying it.

Remember if you aren't featured here be sure to check out Oui Crochet and see if you were featured there.
