Hello my friends!

A sewing question for you today- Has anyone successfully sewn silk? I scored some silk garments at the thrift store with a plan to cut them up and re-assemble them into multi colored scarves. But silk is so flimsy and it looks hard to sew. Any advice would be much appreciated.

In 11 days, Gwensdad will have recovered from his hernia surgery enough to resume regular care of Gwen! She is heavy and he has been advised not to lift heavy loads for 6 weeks after the surgery. So in 15 days or so I am taking a week off from work for the first time in forever. Part of the time will be used to shop for a new sewing machine.

Your eye candy for the day- a Gee’s Bend quilt.
