Thanks to my Dear Sister, all the animals and plants were healthy, happy and safe under her care. Usually, there is some major event that she has to take care of -- birth and/or death emergencies. Once, she discovered that during her after-work plant watering, she had been watering one of my deceased cats -- that's a story she doesn't want me to tell.
While in CO, I began a Quilt Along with Judy at Patchwork Times. I purchased all the fabrics and began the cutting and was looking forward to getting back to my sewing machine. Well,? guess what? It couldn't be left out of the fun of making my life miserable. It is a 40 year - old Pfaff 1199 and something BROKE!
After a few days of trying to keep up with the Quilt Along by doing piecing by hand, I gave up and bought a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0. Of course, I am so far behind on sewing machine technology thatI am required to take classes to figure out how to use it. And a new sewing machine meant reorganizing the sewing room, of course.
Sooo, Judy, I am behind on the Quilt Along, BUT since I am only making a wall hanging, I am sure I can catch up. It took me all day learning to use the 1/4" quilting foot
to get this far -- only need 2 1/2 more squares!
