We have home made pizza most weekends, it is quick (I do the dough in the bread maker) and easy. When the pizza comes out of the oven the only thing I have the right size is my cutting board and then to protect the table I end up putting 4 mats underneath it, not any more. Now I have a lovely pizza sized mat and it matches the other table mats I made.
This was actually a project so that I could try out some of the functions on my new machine, I love, love, love the blanket stitches and will certainly be using them on a regular basis. I also tried my hand at free motion quilting, this is my first attempt, I really enjoyed it, it was a bit tricky in parts and I think if I do a quilt like this I would have to get myself a pair of FMQ gloves. I did cock up the binding a bit, oh well!
