A purchase

Moving right along here... I had some time this morning so I got out some more batik fabric I'd bought this summer and made another word block. I think I have twelve now! One more for this month's goals but I'm not going to do it today.

Next, appliqued hearts for the bazaar quilt. That goal is completed! (I know I said do 24 this month but we divied up the blocks and each of us took three home and I am done! Next patchwork day a month away.

And best of all!!!!!! Look what I ordered! I feel thrilled and guilty at the same time. This purchase was influenced by Judy at Ragdolls when she told me about this book she uses. Well, checking at Amazon proved that Ms. Guadynski had another book that looked just as intriguing so I pushed the button before I could consider anymore. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! The pictures make me drool! To be able to do machine quilting like that!!! So you can see why I'm thrilled. Guilty? Well, I shouldn't really be putting more money into this hobby of mine. I'm already trying to curb my fabric purchases. And besides, am I really going to take up machine quilting? Yes! I really want to learn how and this is the only way I can figure I'm going to learn! I read the first couple chapters last night and was biting my fingernails as I went along. Hey, there's no way I'm going to be able to get a sewing machine cabinet or an extension table as she recommends. Does this mean I'm doomed before I start? The details in thread weights and needle numbers are great but I don't know if I'm going to be able to find them in Japan. I'm sure there must be comparable needles and threads but I guess I'm just going to have to buy different things and try them all to find what works best. More money spent... But first! Read the book and get inspired!
