End of the line


My poor sewing machine is on it's last legs.  I worked it too hard earlier in the summer and it broke.  Happily it has been fixed, but now it will only sew in straight lines - no more free embroidery for me!  Which leaves me with a bit of a problem. I really need to buy a new machine but I'm in the middle of making a quilt for my daughter to take to University in October and I haven't time to shop for such a difficult item right now.

 I have managed to coax a little bit of appliqué out of the poor machine and here is the result.  I'll let you see the finished quilt in a couple of weeks.
