A Slight Pause Accompanied by Some Sewing

Huh? What does that mean?

It means I am taking a break and sewing with some Comma.

According to Dictionary.com “a comma is a punctuation mark used to set something apart and is usually accompanied by a pause” – yes I’m paraphrasing, the definition is way longer than that and even includes talk of numbers. I avoid numbers whenever possible, they make my head hurt!

I’ve been taking a pause from the purple quilt, it is kind of making my head hurt because I have Quilt Block (haha) – I can’t figure out how to quilt it or if I even want to attempt to do it on my home machine. The last largish quilt (60×60) that I did on my machine I was out of commission for almost 3 weeks. Well the purple quilt is 75×75 – and actually 85×85 with the extra room on all sides for shifting!  That is quite large and quite daunting to me! So I am taking a pause, or a comma if you will.

I’m working on something completely different for my sewing machine. I’m hoping to use it on sew days with my new guild! I am taking a ton of pictures and will hopefully be writing a tutorial. Later this week look for the turning the backing to a binding tutorial.

Have a happy Tuesday everyone! Anne and I will be off to mommy & me ballet this morning which should be lots of fun!

  5. We are in the middle of summer here, and with the kids home all day, I have found little alone time for Janome and me. Enjoy your pause. I am from what I have seen sew far! Looking forward to your next update on those fabric cuts!

  7. I keep eyeing Comma – it’s so good with all the different scale of print and yummy colors.
