I’m working on the latest Free Motion Quilting challenge with Cindy Needham this month.
I have been learning so much this year and I can’t recommend it enough for any quilter. I, myself, being a hand quilting purist am having a wonderful time.
I haven’t actually began the tutorial, but Cindy recommends finding your sewing rhythm by simply sitting down at a machine and sewing. She recommends listening to your machine and find that purrrrfect (that was me, not her.) sound your machine makes, not too fast, not too slow.
Here is what I was working on.
I was trying to find that rhythm. Trying and trying and trying
when all of a sudden I could hear it. I could actually hear that purring rhythm…..
Except, it wasn’t my sewing machine.
The source of the purr.
This is Diamond. She is one our many kitties. She thought my quilt just looked like a comfy place to crawl up in and sleep.
Now, do I move her or do I let her sleep? I certainly can’t sew with her on the quilt. That needle moving up and down is just too big of a temptation. What would you do?
