The lining is in!
I finished putting the lining together earlier this week, and today I stitched it into the jacket by hand. It was one of those tasks that took at least five times as long to do than I thought it would. All told, it has been an irritating and slippery business, and it's not a perfect job. There again, it is thirty seven years since I last lined a jacket, so from that point of view I'm rather chuffed.
Now all I have left to do is the buttons and buttonholes. I can't wait to have this project finished. It's been a bit of a beast.
The project that caught my eye in Week 134 was Margarita's Easter napkin. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and have a closer look.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post and/or grab the linky button for your blog's sidebar.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
4. The link up will remain open for four days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Monday.
So far quilters from the USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, France, Macau, Russia, Ireland and Brazil have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
