The things you find…

This is a potholder. I made it this weekend using a couple of orphan blocks and a section of a retired bath towel.
Not only did this project net me a new potholder, (of which I am always short), but it allowed me to consume some of the flotsam and jetsam that inevitably builds up in my studio.
The big bonus, however, is that I had a chance to try out a new free-motion machine quilting design. It’s kind of difficult to see, but it’s an all-over vine motif.
The downside? Well, as I sat down to work at my beautiful new Bernina, I noticed there was something on it. No, there was something *all over* it. Some creature had apparently become violently ill while standing on the walkway above my studio. Yes, it’s true.
Somebody puked on my sewing machine.
Next project?
Sewing machine cover.

    Oh my gosh! Sewing machine puke! I can’t imagine anything more horrifying!

      Lindsay, it was pretty horrifying. We women end up dealing with puke a lot though. Animal puke, baby puke… I just didn’t expect to fine puke on my sewing machine. It cleaned up all right, though, so all’s well that ends well. And I finally have a good reason to make that sewing machine cover!

    I’m definitely thinking “Bernina cozy”

    I love the concept of “retired bath towel” – we could stand to do that with some of our terry products around the house.

      Dave, we retired several of our bath towels and wash cloths as a holiday gift to ourselves. It’s so nice to know that you’re not pulling the towel with the big tear in the side or the mysterious stain in the corner. We got excellent ones on closeout at BB&B.
