I tried my double needle yesterday on my Stitchers Garden piece for next month. This is what a double needle looks like in the machine.

I also worked on getting the braided corners on the second block from this month and it turned out okay. My appliqué mistake turned into a design opportunity.
DW and I worked a bit more on the coffee cups quilt and after rolling it later in the afternoon, found I was further along then I thought. Two more rows to go.
Jim and I purchased a second backing (the first one isn't going to work) for Amazon Star from the amazing Hen House. She is getting more and more fabric in and all I can say is wow! Her prices aren't sky high and we get a guild discount to boot.
While we were in Mason we visited a shop called Yards of Fabric. Jeaneane is really nice and I picked up some really cool fat quarters and a pattern to make a sewing machine cover for Mike. He gets pretty dusty if I don't use him day to day and this will make a nice small project Sunday thing to work on tomorrow. If the pattern works out (sewing anxiety here) I'll make a second one later for Jay.
