Three things to be happy about:
(1) pink bubble gum
(2) a new notepad
(3) being spot on!
Somehow I missed it on the news, but they filed bankruptcy and will be closing 70 stores... the store I went to yesterday morning is one of em.
They start the liquidation on Thursday.
Will your local Hancock's be closing??
Yesterday was the last day Jeff will be at the store; he was able to replace the foot pedal on my Touch n Sew while I waited.
The good news is he's trying to get a contract with a small-appliance store that's within a mile of the Hancock location. The other good news is he'll come to your home for a small fee.
I bought my Singer somewhere around 1970, Jeff is the only repairman who has worked on it for the last 40 years - that's a loooooong time!
In other news, now that I finished the x and plus UFO, I can move on!
At our guild we're doing our version of the All People Quilt UFO challenge. On my list, the number Carol pulled corresponded to these Christmas blocks from my Bee that I haven't done anything with since the swap in April 2015.
Because all the blocks aren't exactly the same size, I thought using a twisted block setting would be a good choice. So... I pulled out this book that I've had for a long time, Twist n Turn by Sharyn Squire Craig.
I started with one of my own blocks to see if I like the look - looks pretty good!
Onward and upward with these blocks... I have to show some positive progress at our next meeting, on February 20.
Heck, I might have the flimsy done by then!
That's it for now, have a great Tuesday, go out and buy some fabric, sew forth and sew on...
