I spent last weekend sewing with friends, and oh my gosh we had fun.  I think everyone should plan a retreat at home.  Just think, send your husband and kids away for the weekend (mine husband happily went camping) and invite some friends over for sewing, all weekend long.  Use whatever space you have even if it’s the kitchen table.  Sewing together is what makes it fun!

I got to sew on a Juki 2010 Q and fell in love. It was easy to stitch a perfect 1/4″ seam allowance, even while sewing fast.  The Juki only does straight stitching, but it does it so well, it’s easy to forget about other stitches.  I think my Bernina was definitely a little jealous.

I stitched these 2″ log cabin blocks (actually they finish at 1  1/2″) on the Juki using the great 1/4″ foot that comes with the machine.    The center square is only 1/4″ wide.  I don’t know that I could stitch up 100 of these little blocks, but wouldn’t a few be cute in a border?

And everyone was talking about these rolling metal carts from Ikea, so of course I had to order one.   Can’t you see it holding fat quarters and fabric for a current project?  It rolls from cutting table to machine.  It comes in aqua or grey!

Humm…wonder if I should get they grey one too?
