I needed to make some more adjustments on my new Featherweight before I could really use it. I had trouble with the belt slipping and then my needle started to hit the needle plate. After I made these adjustments, I wanted to see how it sewed. It is a peppy little machine. Peppier, I think, than my others. I made these two little mug rugs with it. I work remotely so have little contact with the other people in my department. I decided to make some of them mug rugs. They aren't quilters, so I am sure I will have some explaining to do when they receive them. The women in my little quilt club hadn't heard of mug rugs either. I spend too much time reading blogs!
Spent the rest of the weekend watching two of my grand kids while their parents went to a marriage retreat through their church. It was tiring, and I am glad I don't have to do it all the time, but I miss them tonight!
Elijah had soccer practice-he is really enjoying himself. Madison played with other little girls while their siblings practiced.
