Yesterday involved a visit to Mom and a clothing alteration but I did get the rest of the corners sewn for the blue quilt. Block trimming comes next.
The clothing alteration was a black pair of pants, hence no photo. I got them at LLBean on vacation for 60% off but they were too long in the waist and length. It was worth getting the to try because they cost less than $20! They are a very nice knit and I wanted to wear them to the baby shower tomorrow. I got them done but it was almost a crisis because the air threading mechanism wasn't working on one of the loopers.
For you serger owners, here's my tip for the day. When the thread wouldn't feed through this looper channel I figured that there was a blockage in the pipe somewhere. Digging around in my supplies I found a box of these loop dental floss threaders. I split one apart and it was exactly long enough, flexible enough and stiff enough to go through both halves of the channel and it pushed a pretty significant lint ball out of the looper.
Tomorrow we head to Chesapeake for the baby shower so there won't be much creative stuff going on this weekend but I'll be happy to see family, especially my SIL. She's out of the hospital and doing well! Thank you for all of your prayers and good thoughts.
