Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Miriam, so glad to hear the guy that hit your son has insurance! Also, I would like to see a better photo of the outfits you made for your trip! Here I thought you only played with machines and didn't sew much - shows how much I know!
I think a hand crank would be cool way to make a button hole with one of those gadgets. I just got another one working!!! Tensions were off.
Yes I really do sew when I'm not having too much fun with a sewing machine. I don't have a detailed pic of us in our duds. That was one somebody just snapped while we were sitting around. I do some of it by hand - I take it with me when I have some place where I have to wait. That cap was all hand sewn - I used an old linen blouse - linen is expensive - blouse at the thrift store for a buck. I made a matching pocket - I'd have to dig it all out...
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

Does anyone know how Texas Jan is doing - how her husband is doing?
Had a frustrating evening- was sewing away on the pink quilt when a piece of the free motion foot broke off- didn't hit it or anything, just the spring sproinged. Well that little bit went down into the bobbin case and I marred the bobbin case and broke a needle, all in a matter of a minute! So now I am waiting for my industrial to have a new case and replacement foot to arrive before I can finish this hospice quilt. Good news is the bobbin case for an industrial is cheap. I guess the machine knew I was in a hurry! laura
