Testing #3

Sometimes I have a humungous “DUH” moment -

Ever have one of those??

I had one yesterday -

When it occurred to me that I was doing a really DUHmb thing - ;))

Why am I trying to get my oldest machine set up to do the 1/4” seam??

I have another much newer machine available -
One with a custom-fitted 1/4” seam guide with flange -
One with a built-in 1/4” seam allowance stitch setting -
One with adjustable needle positions -
One with a needle-down setting -

Why don’t I use the Lexus/Lily to sew the 1/4” seams for the piecing -
Where the seam allowance is critical -

And the Pinto to do the string blocks -
Where the seam allowance is irrelevant??
All I have to do is change the needle to a size 14 -
And take off the magnetic guide -

Repeat after me -

DUH!! ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. OMG!! I am parking the car now!!! ROFL

  2. That's hardly a duh moment compared to some I've had lately! But don't beat yourself up over it - you figured it out and all is well. :) Are you actually going to sew QUILT pieces together any time soon, though? :0

  3. I am smiling because I have alot of those moments!

  4. I believe we are kindred spirits. So many duh moments, I attribute those to the many thoughts in my head that are trying to get out and be put into creative endeavors.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
