Coming to terms with ones machine....

I finally finished the first Peppermint candy quilt started last year.  And some of you thought you were bad about getting things done!  Ok so I blame everything on the LA machine.  As many of you know I've had issues, (OK alot of issues, but we won't go there), with my LA.  I never could seem to get the tension right or even close on the machine.  I had even talked to the owner of the company that makes the machine.  Sence then, I've tinkered with it and tried a bit of this and that.  I did…

I need help with a few phone calls

Morning to all,

I called the state of Alaska this morning to see if they were offering a reward for missing snow.  No takers on that one.  I figure if we all pick a state, country we can find out who is missing all their snow and have them come and get it.  Ok I've had enough of the white stuff. Having ventured out when I thought it was raining, I wanted to get to the LQS for some thread to finish a quilt top.  By the time I got there, my blue car was white.  I'm so glad I'm not…

It may be cold outside

It may be cold outside but I've got the colors to warm up with.  My daughter didn't like the "Remember when" quilt colors but she fell in love with these.  So there for I've named the block for her more or less.  It's hugs an kisses.

I really should move south!

Ok I know there are those of you suffering through the winter blast but forgive me for this one.  The sun was out in Washington! Woo hoo!!!!  I'd say 75% of the year is spent in some overcast cloudy mess that I don't want to deal with.  So the sun came up and so did my spirits apparently.  I've cleaned house, did dishes, laundry, dogs, and washed some material.  I've made templates for my new design and even cut up a bit of material to work on tonight. The only things I didn't get to today:… Continue
