By the way I got my order today from MSCQ for the baby rotary cutter and some layer cakes that were the daily deal a little sad it wasnt a full layer cake but gives me enough to play since in my last order I ordered the circle cutter. Dot to dots here I come...:icon_wave::icon_bigsmile::D

Suzi walk away ...grab a coffee or a cold drink and breathe. I hate days like that when nothing goes right so we won't allow it to happen to you. It's raining here and Im having a hard time leaving the sewing room....and the computer. When's the wedding? Im thankful none of my girls are ready for that yet...I have enough gray lol. My girls are 23,19 and 16...and boy do I miss them

thanks :icon_bigsmile: have done lots of walking away and coming back to it - wedding is Oct 10. have had the top completed since mid august and have been fussing with a borrowed machine since!

.......a big part of the fustration is the stored anger i still have that my machine head was destroyed when we moved last year. the guys just would not listen to me when i told them not to take the rails off the frame! they did anyway but not the head and when it rolled the length of the frame and smashed on the concrete is was like a toyota hitting an oak tree!! :icon_evil: must get over that and move on ......

at least i do have this brother machine on loan from a friend and worse to worse i can put a walking foot on and just straight stich (hopefully) ...... :icon_rolleyes:

Sorry about the machine it seems we all have that every now and then. Stay calm and carry on. LOL :D I had to try everything in the book to get mine back to working. Now I don't know which one of the things made it work but it does. (fingers crossed) How much more do you have to do on the wedding quilt? Would love to see it or have I? The mind is the first to go.LOL :icon_confused:

Sounds like fun to me Laura! Good job on the weight loss Shauna! I'm starting to gain mine back. I gotta work on that.
Suzi I'm so sorry about your machine.
Laura isn't a layer cake supposed to be 40 squares? I wonder why you only got 16.
Maybe you should check on that. Love you all, hugs, Jan

So sorry about your machine Suzi!
Shauna keep up the good work!
Laura thanks for starting this, it will be fun!

Busy day for me, studying this morning, then out and about with my sister running errands this afternoon. Stopped in at the sewing center to see a product demo, then off to my son's school to participate in his First Lego Legue project.
It has been horribly humid here in the Seattle area all day! I feel like I am in the south!
I hope everyone has a great week!:icon_wave:

Suzi, saw some of your quilts on your profile page and WOW!!!!!!!! I hope someday to do as good as you. You have done some beautiful things. What does the wedding quilt look like? I wish I was closer and I would give you my machine. :icon_hi: I've been looking at some of the other girls quilts and maybe I better not send you my stars they aren't as good as you guys can do.

It's been raining all day here. (NY) It makes me achey with all that moisture in the air. Even my poor old dogs are limping around. One of those rainy, sleepy days. I was busy doing laundry. Sewed in between load transfers. {:-> Finally had to quit. Oh well, there is always tomorrow. But then I have to clean before all my girls come over. We are machine knitters who have taken up quilting. We are learning together. So I won't be sewing tomorrow. We haven't knitted anything since we picked up quilting. lol Quilting is just so cool. I can't wait for the two classes to start that we are taking. One is hand quilting and the other is a orange peel wall hanging. They start in October. Everyone is collecting fabric and tools and the pattern etc. I'll let you know how it works out.

Nonsense!! We all started somewhere, we weren't born good at quilting (although perhaps we could take that up with God sometime, :lol:). I'm sure you have made your blocks with love and tenderness (maybe even a little swearing), and I'm sure we will love them. No one is perfect, when I make a mistake or am not happy with with the not so perfectness of my work, I tell myself it is an Amish quilt and the mistake was intentional, (I tell everyone who notices the mistake that as well :D:icon_heh: )

Nope we want them there blocks woman :icon_heh: Seriously I consider myself the queen of unsewing and trust me my blocks are far from perfect. And swearing - don't even get me started on that subject. :lol: I know it will take practice and patience to better my quilting. So hang in there with us-it'll be okay! :icon_hug:

Go craftyladysam! :icon_woohoo:

Don't make me use the angry face!! lol

Okay! Okay! I'll send them but it seems the more I make the worst they look. Maybe i'm ready for another project.LOL Come back to them later. I got another month,right? Maybe I'll send them on to Suzi and she can fix them.:D:D LOL Nooooo! I won't do that . My mistakes are my mistakes and thats what makes them (blocks) mine. Right? I'm just feeling nervous I guess.:icon_scared:

That's the spirit! You can do it! :icon_woohoo: Yeah take a break if you are having trouble. I do that and it helps to get away for a bit.

And I'm sure you know there are no quilt police right-so no worries!

Suzi - those are pretty! I originally made that quilt for my cousin who was fighting breast cancer. It was all handquilted and I loved the bright colors I put in it. Every star was quilted around each seam line, really made them pop.

Well, not much going on tonight so off I go to sew something!

Hugs,
