THE WEEKEND STUFF
My Janome 4800 Quilters’ Companion sewing machine badly needed a cleaning after making the twin size flannel quilt I talked about here. Little flannel “fuzz” and dust were inside my machine everywhere. I took the throat plate off and thoroughly cleaned the area under the plate including the bobbin area and feed dogs using a chenille pipe cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Even used a wet washcloth to wipe down the outer surface.
Ms. Quilting Bear and Ms. Janie Janome are both so happy now!
After getting five blocks behind. I’m back on the Grandmother’s Choice blocks published weekly by Barbara Brackman on her blog. I completed #10 New York using William Morris fabric and a 4” paper-pieced 8-pointed star in one section.
Also did a bit of Christmas shopping via Amazon.com and put up my Christmas tree. When I set up all of my Santa collection, I’ll take pictures and share with you.
