An Inquiring mind wants to know

Yes I would like to know, what sewing machine do you use? What likes and dislikes. I can't afford a new machine yet, I wish I could but the bills dictate other wise, that and the dentist office. I guess no ones told them we are in a reccession. I have a Pfaff 2042 made for quilting but here lately it just isn't getting the job done. Seems that I spend a lot of time ripping seams to realine my edges in this quilt I'm working on and it's getting very frustrating. The sales lady said that it…

Not such a bad morning

Good news all the way around. Mom got home from the hospital yesterday. I've yet to make it over to see her release forms but she asures me that she does have them. I know that sounds weird but she has taken it upon herself to up and leave hospitals before with out being released by the doctors. If she doesn't have them I'm calling the hospital to see if there is a reward for her return! JK. The BF made it home this morning, worse for the wear and tear on his nerves from driving in all that… Continue

updated news...

I was going to the hospital to see mom and the snow came down in buckets. The main road turned to ice in a matter of an hour. I have our explorer with 4 wheel drive but no one else seems to remember how to drive. One does not sit at an intersection in a pickup truck with no weight in the bed and race the engine to watch their tires spin and the back end sliding around. So not cool! That was enough for me. I turned around stopped at the store got the fixings for Thanksgiving diner and came home.… Continue

two raccoons and a white cat...

On my way to work this morning two raccoons cross the road infront of me. Not a big deal, a little unusual so far into town (Tacoma Wa). Not even a quarter of a mile further, white cat crosses the road, at 4:30 in the morning. At about the same time tiny snowflakes start coming down. Not totally unexpected but I thought I had made it without getting caught in the snow. When this happens turn around and go home!!!!! I made it to work, not a great day but I survived as I watched the snow fall and… Continue

A small peek at whats going on with the quilt

As I mentioned in another post, I've started working on the second of the two block quilt. I Should have been off work today and I would have gotten more done on this quilt but work called and wanted me. We took out the old shelves that we had and put in new ones today. I was only going to be there a few hours and then home but the main office had other ideas that took longer than we expected. Tomorrow being my only day off work for the week, I'm not sure how much more I will get done so I…

Was I out of my mind or what...

Ok so I have the first half of the two block quilt finished. I've spent most of my time this evening cutting out the pieces for the second block in the quilt. I knew when I designed the blocks and got my material from CT that this was going to be a quilt for my bed. That means it has to be king size. I guess I could have made the blocks larger but I think in all fairness that CT has got to take part of the blame for having made the material I had to have, couldn't live without and placed two…

Completed second block

I tried to add the picture of the completed second block on previous post but couldn't get it on the page. I thought I'd line the other blocks around it just to get an impression of what it's going to look like when they are pieced together.

I couldn't wait any longer

I guess it's been a week sence I posted anything. I've been busy working, and working on my quilt blocks. Today should have been my weekend but I was scheduled to work. After working six days straight I wasn't planning on working on my quilt tonight but it was sitting there at the table just calling me. So off I went to the table to cut some material and pieced another block. This quilt is a two block pattern and I've been ever so curious about how the second block will look with the first.…
