Quilt With Us

Kathy/WA's Blog – August 2010 Archive (9)

Where did the day go to?

Well good evening or morning, depending on when you read this. This is the first time I think I can honestly say that I lost myself in my quilt. I was up early again today on my day off and after having my coffee break and a chat with the other half who is still out on the road, I started to work on my nieces quilt for her daughter. I have had all the patchwork blocks finished and the alternating block I repeated a portion of the patchwork design and stitched that into the plain blocks. I had… Continue

Super Sonic foot pedal

Good afternoon to all. Well the saga of the foot pedal is over for now. I returned the sewing machine. Purchased my foot pedal of gold (figureativly speaking), held my breath plugged it in and yes it does work. Talk about a sensitive pedal. I can break the sound barrier with the speeds my Pfaff goes now. I don't think that my machine has ever worked this fast before. This is going to take some getting use to for sure.

I have noticed that the speed the machine works at least on the…

I couldn't take the withdrawals symptoms any more

As some of you may have read. My dearly beloved yorkie baby puppy chewed up my foot pedal cord to my Pfaff sewing machine and to replace said cord was going to be expensive, to me anyway, sence I'd spent my paycheck buying material. Day three with no useable sewing machine and honey gave in and said to buy a new one. Don't go getting excited here. I bought a Singer machine, just a base model. I have the "it cost and arm and leg embroidery machine" which I could use if I could find the other…

when it rains it pour and not just the wet stuff outside

My day just keeps getting better and better. I have the yorkie puppies up for sale and a lady has called several times. Sent her pictures of the little devils. She is interested in my older puppy who has been staying with my boss cause she is in heat. can't have her here with daddy but went to get her and now waiting for this lady to show up. In the mean while, daddy is chasing Pearl about the house. Tried locking them up but the retriever keeps opening the door. the other half is having truck… Continue

good evening

Well I've just been talking to my other half. He is now driving a semi truck and stuck in Fort Stockton TX. They are according to him having one heck of a rain storm/ lightning and thunder to boot. Makes me glad I didn't go with him. So I got my first order of material from CT which includes some batiks. I love the colors but haven't got a clue what to do with them in a pattern. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I've also posted a few pictures on my site. I have all the pieced blocks… Continue

I am very very bad

Yes I am bad. I couldn't resist. I have no will power when it comes to the material CT has added. I love the Solids and the Mirage fabrics, and for the price, it seems that I will have no savings account for a long time to come. Personal note to Karen: Along with the new fabrics you should have added a moderation button! Or at the very least a Fabrics Anonymous Page where we can at least try to talk each other out of spending our life savings (ok thoughs that have a savings these days) on this… Continue

What to do first....

What ever shall I do first? It's my weekend, and the BF is still out on the road working. It's shaping up to be another scorching hot one in the northwest, ok it's going to be in the 90"s again. Very tempted to spend the day out in the sun which I haven't done this year and yet I've tanned somewhat according my co-workers. I laugh and tell them no I haven't been out, just thawing out from winter and getting my color back. On the other hand I wanted to get the pieced blocks finished for my… Continue

there must be something wrong with my computer

Ok I couldn't stop the computer. I thought I would pass the time gazing at the materials that CT has added and the next thing I know, buttons were pushed, an order was placed. I know the computer has gremlins! Yes, the other half will go for that one. Ok he won't but he isn't here, so it doesn't matter. :)

I've been reading about everyone going on about the batiks material. I've looked at it in the stores but I've never worked with it in my quilts. So if anyone happens to stop by and…

Ok who changed the buttons on the computer?

I realize that I haven't posted on here in a while, but I do check in to see who is doing what and who went where and all that. granted most of my weekend I was working on my quilt pattern/quilt but I thought I had been on here at least once in the past few days. Here I go clicking on CT and up popped a page I'd never scene before. Dog -gone- it I had to look twice to make sure I was in the right place. I'll bet the leader of the "pack" "miss Karen" had something to do with it and didn't bother… Continue
