No fabric came into the house this week, and none were finished into tops or quilts either :( So it's a wash of a week for me. Lots and Lots of blocks made- alot of near finishes. I hope Mr Juki is done soon so I can quilt.
I did manage to finsh 4 more ocean waves blocks - yippee only 56 more to go. Lots of partials going but I needed to stop and start making the rows of Carolina Crossroads. I for the 3 middle ones sewn together and put it all away for the move today.
The cats woke me up at 4AM this morning. I was not a happy camper and I couldn't run a machine as the rest of the house was sleeping so I was sewing a few more tumbling blocks together....of course wise guy I'm married to asked it if was a Q Bert quilt?
We put a shelf up, rearranged the sewing area so I'm facing the windows. I've decided I have way too many books...lol. But I couldn't find any I wanted to part with. See Ethel on the book case. I need to order one of those cute boxes for her.
I don't know if you can see the box from the first treadle base...which was way past being able to repair for less than alot more than it was worth. I kept the machine and pitched the base- 2 refinishers said it wasn't worth fixing with all the cracks in the wood and what looks like had termites....but the box covers my embroidery machine PERFECTLY. That will be stripped and refinished in the spring VBG>
This HUGE and HEAVY box came Friday to me - wonder what's under all those styrofoam pellets??????
Isn't it great???? Mel sent it to me when I killed the Janome Gem last weekend. There are a million buttons.I joined a Viking Group and was able to get a pdf of the manuel and will print it out tomorrow and play. Thank you so much Mel!!! You Rock as DD would say
