Quilt With Us

my love hate relationship with my LA

I am sure many of you have read my past posts about my LA and how the two of us just can't seem to get connected.  Last week during my vacation I started quilting one of my tops and the results have been less than appealing in my eye.  It could be that hand eye coordination thing but I tend to blame the machine for the mistakes.  It has tension issues, stitching issues, and I won't even mention the steering issues!  Opps I think I just did...  Ok I am in no way a professional quilter on a…

Last day of vacation :o(

So the last day of my vacation started out with messaging between daughter and I.  She came over to use computer and then wanted to go shopping.  Why did I have to go along???  She is after all 26.  I think she's 26.  I don't keep track of my own age, so don't expect me to remember hers.  She's old enough to shop by herself!!  I know, I know, quality time with dd.  She hit about six different stores in four hours time and decided that we had spent enough time together and brought me home.  I…

Day 4 of Vacation, What happened to day 3????

Ok who ever stole yesterday from me needs to give it back!!  Oh wait that would be mom!  Spent much of yesterday running mom around.  The up side was diner out. My daughter even managed to show up for a few minutes to say hi and showed off her gently used "new" car. After all that I sat and pondered my quilting project.  I tried the clear wash out webbing  the other night and didn't like it.  I kept tearing the stuff before I got to the quilting part of my project.  Went back to Joann's this…

Vacation day 2

Not nearly as exciting as that yearly physical but still interesting enough.  I've ordered material, I've ordered another book and I've been to the local fedex to get a photo enlarged of a design that I've decided I wanted to do for my quilt.  So now that big question is: How do I go from picture to material????  I've tried light box, doesn't work for me.  I've tried clear platic trace and pin, doesn't work for me.  I've tried sticky paper draw and pin then sew, doesn't work for me.  I can't…

It's official, I am on vacation

Yes indeed, I am on vacation.  So what am I going to get done this week?  Probably not as much as I want to. The other half came home last week after he got word that his daughter had her baby girl on August 1st and has been here sence the 4th of the month.  He did try to leave (he is a long haul truck driver) but the truck broke down and is now at the second shop trying to figure out why it has no power.  So that limits what I can get done.  I know I've mentioned before that I like to sit…
