Part way through this quilt my machine lost its timing. It has happened so regularly that I felt my only option was to send it back to Handiquilter for a full service. (By the way Glen at Handiquilter technical desk rocks!)
We took the opportunity to dismantle the frame and move it down to the basement
I was beyond stressed sending him off.
My new 'room' (cupboard) is just big enough. I can't put on any weight - I won't fit!!
My kids made gorgeous art as Christmas presents - it was really hard to give them away. This is an apple tree my 5year old painted and put collage on top.
I learn to make a Lone Star quilt - this is a really lovely quilt I have made for a fallen soldiers family - stay posted.
I get given SO much wool fabric you would not believe how long it took to wash, fold and organize 7 big trash bags of fabric (thank you Auntie Chris!!)
Freddie comes home and he is PERFECT. I want to hug and kiss Glen - luckily for him he is in Utah and I am in New York.
I learn to sew on dolls hair.
I re-load the pre-Christmas quilt - which is a quilt laden with various disasters. I name it the 'what not to do quilt'.
A pillow to go with the previously mentioned Lone Star quilt.
It gets really cold - this is my workroom window.
I get to play with my new couching foot - more fun than eating a box of Jaffa Cakes while getting your feet rubbed!!
What have you been up to?
