No Wonder My Hands Hurt!

Hello there to you!
Another week nearly over.
Here are a few things I've been working on in the past day or two:
My very first treadle sewing:
I did the piecing and the quilting on the treadle, then sewed the binding on with the Viking.
I hand-sewed the back of the binding.
This afternoon I cut out a stack of over 100 hexie pieces for my GFG
Following a tip I read on Quiltville on FB, I attached a piece of this tape to
the back of the template and it was very helpful in
preventing slipping.

After I finished cutting the hexies, I completed three
hand-written notes that I'll mail tomorrow.
Our weather this week has been a bit fickle --
Early in the week tornadoes passed very close to us
on Thursday we had some snow.
I think I'll make a cuppa tea and do some reading in a book I've been trying to finish.
Y'all have a great night!

  1. What kind of treadle do you have? I have a White but the bobbin is diabolical so I haven't managed to sew anything with it yet. My grandmother had a singer - just a basic version - but it was thrown out before I could rescue it. That's a terrific tip for your hexie shape. Hand written notes are such a rarity these days that it's a treat to receive one.

  2. Love your treadle sewing. You have indeed been busy...quite a pile of hexies. Hope you enjoyed your cuppa and book x

  3. Wow your treadle work looks great !!

  4. Nice to see you are sewing and keeping busy. Also happy to hear that the foul weather passed you by.
