Busy Busy Day and I still love quilting and a giveaway

Today I helped my brother hem and alter some oversized bedspreads for his motel. It was fun I brought both my sewing machines, and all my sewing doodads. It took awhile to get set up and we were almost going to say the heck with it when I remembered the walking foot I had never used. Well lo and behold it actually works. The walking foot worked so well that Tom went out and bought another one for the other machine.

The other machine I have never done anything heavy on it because it is plastic and just never sews anything heavy really well. Well....let me tell you the walking foot on that machine it actually does a very nice job. Now that we have it down to a science we can get 2 bedspreads hemmed in less than a half hour. (these are queen size spreads).

The other thing that we used was an electric scissors. They are awesome and were on sale yesterday at Hancock Fabrics for $25.00 Normally selling for $60.00. Cutting the fabric was never easier and I do love my Fiskars (can't think of the name but they are the ergonomic ones). Well mom and I bought one today. They are
