A week in review; 4 finishes; Bernina back *yippee*; Stash Report 3/8-3/14


First things first----
after another week of mostly NO sewing, my Bernina shop guy called me Friday afternoon to let me know she was fixed. Directly after school, I hauled my lil' tuckus down to Eau Claire to pick it up before the shop closed at 6:00. I JUST made it!!!! With a few other stops on the way back home, I waltzed in around 8:30; too late to really begin any sewing.

But Saturday-------whoa yeah!
Quilts for Kids - NICU quilt #1 quilted {{Precious One}}


Quilts for Kids - NICU quilt #2 quilted {{Beary Precious}}


And Quilts for Kids - NICU quilt #3 quilted {{another Beary Precious}} -- NO PIC.

Then I moved on to Paintbox quilting.....


Family time-out

Paul took Candace out fishing on Tuesday, with his brother and buddy. I don't have a picture of the ice TODAY (Paul didn't take the camera), but we have (finally) had some warm weather hit us since Tuesday---hitting near 60 today. Actually, I haven't checked actual temps today, but I would beg to say it was over 60 degrees. It was GORGEOUS today!!!!! Set up Cassie's basketball hoop, grabbed the shovel and moved some dirt around in the front yard......
(fish from last week....)

anyway......
back to sewing....
Today, I worked a bit on some WIP blocks.....
Carolina Christmas -- 15 more of step 4....


Another Hannah's Rotation. GOSH---putzy, putzy pattern. Very much like putting together a puzzle....


Paintbox - set number 8...



I usually don't set goals for a week, BUT...
I need to label 12 quilts this week so they can be handed over to MIL next weekend. She is setting up for a craft sale the last weekend of March and she is willing to put some of my quilts out...

Same machine as I have Amy...I never enjoyed it till it was fixed about 2 weeks ago - and NOW I am having fun. I also have a Pffaf 1755, which I preferred..not now though :) Enjoyed your blog.

OHH Welcome Home Bernina! Congrats on all those finishes.

I do better when I set goals. Goal driven I guess.

I keep peeking at your Perkiomen Dreams. I wonder if that means... I will be making one in my distant future?

Oh my goodness you are burning up that new machine! You better be careful..it'll start on fire at the speed you're going :)
Enjoy having your machine back:)

I might be interested in buying (and paying postage) on one (or some) of your quilts instead of your MIL dragging them to the craft fair. Can you put in hyperlinks to show them?

Hi Everybody,

If you are a Bernina software user you get a wonderful opportunity to learn new things about Bernina software with some like minded people on a conference that is scheduled from July 25th, 2010. Please visit this url for more details http://itac20.co.za/?page_id=50.
