The twelve birthday party Jedi robes are finished, and there are brown scraps here, there, and everywhere (and yes, I do cut out the big stuff on the floor.) I think that as I pick up the scraps I'll cut them in 5" squares and put them in a plastic bag. The day will come when I'll look at Quilter's Daily Deal at the Missouri Star Quilt Company and there will be a lovely charm pack that will coordinate well with brown. And I'll push the button.
I took one of the robes with me for my little presentation about sergers at American Sewing Guild on Tuesday night. I stressed to the ladies to not forget about oiling their sergers. We are so spoiled by our nice pre-oiled sewing machines these days that we are apt to forget that sergers need oiling. I'm probably a little over the top with it, but I probably oil about every five hours of serging - not taking any chances!
