My second WIP Wednesday. This week I have been working on boxers:
For some reason, the brown thread (from Connecting Threads, on a plastic spool) is making my machine glitch up something terrible: breaking threads, grinding noises, unable to sew at speed AT ALL.
It's the backing for this quilt, my mother-in-law's Japanese Lanterns, that has been the hobgoblin on my back and the source of a lot of quilt guilt for almost 2 years.
this tutorial for Tertia. Her Down syndrome means pants that fit her around the waist need about 10" lopped off the bottom, so capris are pretty much what I buy for her. Unless I find some regular jeans at the thrift store, like these and the second pair I'll do next week. I like the ability to dress up the hems simply, and Quarta can wear them as real capris after Tertia's finished with them. The pink thread, also on a cardboard spool, is also Star brand but not quite as glitch-free as the white. All of the threads are giving me trouble in the bobbin winder.
