Tuesday Musings

Please excuse the messy on the sewing table but look!!! Ethel is working !!!! I've managed to do something to both the janome gem and the juki and both are going into the shop for alttle TLC. But talking to Mel I tried and secceeded in getting Ethel to work!!! She has oil in her, I'm going to risk trying to change the thread. I am going to have to buy some more bobbins so I can have more than one to work with *VBG* But since the cats decided to fight at 5AM "again" over the quilt at the foot of the bed I've been busy fighting the janome to piece color 7 of 10 of the Girl Scout quilts. I got all of part 1 of 4 done and need to press that and move to part 2. I'd love to get another color done and get closer to piecing tops instead of blocks- maybe by the end of Feb and you know what???? I'd still be on schedule- what a concept :) . I see week 10 of Amanda Jean's quilt along is up and I need to cut 2 blocks worth of pieces out and get them together :)

Did you see??? Quiltnut is doing a giveaway

I love your machine's name "Ethel". Very cute! I've not named my featherweight, but you have inspired me to do so. I think I'll name her "Betty Jo" after my Mother; afterall, it was her machine!

Thanks for the idea!

Ethel is just adorable and I bet she will play with you for a long time!
