I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Oh I wish you were closer, Sherri.  Chestnut Ridge does such a super job on tune-ups and repairs.  They sell Berninas but did not treat my Janome like a "second class citizen".  Your newest quilt is awesome, as usual.  Hope your machine decides to shape up!

Not completely healed  after a $200  bill at Findlay Sewing Center,  the machine is still skippng a huge swath of stitches occaisionally,  I didn't like this outfit when it was Lima Sewing Center.. Not feeling much better about them in Findlay.  But I did get the border on my last scrappy.

So glad your Janome is "healed".  Just like meeting up with an old friend you haven't seen in a while!  Enjoy!

I was lost for a couple of weeks a my Janomse was getting a much needed service.  I had missed last years due to Covid,  but the machine was sounding like it had a rod knocking and it was skipping stitches and freezing up.  Just a mess.   Took it to my usual shop ,  only to find that it was out of business... So ended up driving to Findlay to the sewing center there to have the maintenance done.  She was gone  for a couple of weeks and I finally got out my old Kenmore and did a little straight stitching on some small projects.    But Janome is home and running like a champ.  Now just which project do I work on?

Love that panda.  I think she's hooked.  She does amazing work!

...and a Star is Born! How wonderful, Sherri. My DD does beautiful counted cross stitch but, has absolutely no interest in sewing/quilting. I take the wins where I can find them.

I had one of those nights I couldn't sleep last night.  I awoke at 1 am.  Laid there for two hours without being able to fall back to sleep.  I was mulling over in my mind how to rearrange and organize my sewing room. So at 3 am I thought I may as well just get up and get to it.   I packed up a trash bag full of yard to relocate it.  And took out 3  or 4 empty plastic storage bins that I had consolidated.  Plus two bags of trash ( no fabric included)  I can actually walk into the room now without tripping on something.  Of course the rest of the day was a wash as I had a hard time staying awake at work.  But slept well last night with the help of Melatonin and Benadryl.  I so envy people who can lie down at night and promptly drift off to sleep.  NOt one of my strong suits.  This is a picture of DD Jenifer's second paper pieced project. She is improving with every piece.  I think she is a natural.  I help get her through attaching borders. And now she's deciding how to quilt it.  Funny story.  She went to Joanne's to pick out border fabric and the lady at the cutting table asked to see her quilt. When she told them it was only her second project. she called all the staff back to look at it and marvel at how well she did.

Hope you feel better soon, Sherri.  We are getting our second doses next week and I hope my reaction is more like your husband's.  But either way, I agree, the protection is worth it.  Hope tomorrow is better.

I started gathering scraps to make pillow shams for my latest scfrappy.  Im giving it to my oldest granddaughter who is getting her first apartment  this fall.  I knew I had already made a few blocks to matcvh the ones in the quilt,  but I do not know where I put them  so I tore that room apart looking for them.   MY daugther is starting another paper piece project but she was working late last night so I didn't bother to clean up my mess. Figuring she would not want to work on it when she got home.  wrong...  Thought I could clean up and put away today. But not happening  because I am having side effects after the 2nd covid vaccine.  I feel like a train ran over my body. But all in all I would do it again just to get the protection   Thankfully I have some high powered pain meds keft from the first visit for my shoulder break. ,that are getting me through this and I hope it only lasts a day.  DH has no side effects other than a sore arm.  Every muscle in my body hurts  I have chills and some occaisional nausea. But again this will pass. And then I think of poor Tiger  in the hospital and looking at a major change in his life after his accident.   So I should quit complaining.
