In the past few weeks I have moved, got a new job, and ordered a Ray Way quilt kit. Deluxe, with gorget and draft stopper and alpine upgrade. Brown and black.
My sewing machine (basic Kenmore) was jumping and jamming - I took it for a tune up and it works just spiffy now. I reclaimed the machine from the repair place just the day before I packed everything in a Penske and moved 200 miles. My new apartment is still full of boxes and bags and piles of junk on the floor, but doggone it, I set up the machine on a folding table and started on that stuff sack. First time I've ever tried anything slinky as silnylon. A bit of jiggity on part of the seam, but it'll do.
If the RW quilt works out I'm thinking of ordering supplies from Speer and making a down underquilt.
I also attempted a cat stove with abysmal results. Didn't even bubble the water before it died. My cat loves me now, however.
I think the gear bug may have bit just in time to mate with the procrastination bug - it may take a while to un-box, at this rate. Reading lots of posts in this forum probably isn't helping. I think y'all are contagious.
