It never fails but always on the last day of the year......I become linear, and take mental inventory on stuff, my stuff and all stuff. So while I am processing and making out my cards on steps to be taken, I am still thinking of more quicker ways to reach my destination, and maybe there aren't any, but i am going to make it fun in trying to get there. I just have a gut feeling that this is going to be the year for me shine..........I'm going to push myself as hard as I can to make things work. Putting as much positive energy out as I possibly can. I will also be doing a lot of praying for this next task. It seems I have to prove something to myself again.

new year

okay I finally know what I want to do, but must keep it under wraps until the ball gets rolling. this is going to be the biggest thing I've done so far. I can't wait until things go in motion. I put my Janome sewing machine on lay-a-way and I have a target for august. It is the 6600 and this is 1,000 stiches per minute. I think that is really fantastic for a so called domestic machine.

I've only told two people that I trust about this machine. the other so called friends my throw a monkey wrench it my dream. I am going to carry out this plan. From what I can see it's going to go just right. it's a shame that folks wish you ill when you are trying to accomplish something. I am in the last phases of life so to speak and I intend to make them count for something. I decided for once in my life that I am going to do something I love doing, and I am going to work with machines. I now have to boil it down to the two items I plan on developing. I've got a check list, and I am going to go down the line after everything I accomplish. I am not going to let anything stand in my way............the fact that I've even typed this out in black and white for all to see makes me have to go through with this process.

all that's left of a quilt

this is the jacket that was made out of a queen size quilt. I will never do this again. As it was really difficult trying to maneuver the fabric under the feed dogs. I also made some oven gloves and a makeup bag. I got as much out of the quilt as I could. At this point I would not try to make a bag. I got tired of working with this fabric.
The only thing left to do is put the asian tie buttons on this jacket. It is a warm jacket though, but the fabric is not that pliable. For some reason the quilt felt a lot softer before I chopped it up. Again with my hard head I decided to make this without a pattern. Who knows I just might get the hang of this.

not complete

Here is one of the jackets I was working on, but now I have to wait to get the asian twist buttons that I want. I should be sewing at this moment but just don't have the go button on just yet. Believe it or not this is something that I've had for over a year and decided to work on it.
