Toils and Troubles


Machine Quilting is not my favorite thing to do.  After breaking 3 needles, I realized why...I do not plan well.  I was trying to machine quilt the button hole stitch with my single hole throat plate! My poor Bernina, it's still stitching :)

Don't Sweat the Small stuff!



I love making "baby stuff".  I made these "burp pads" for my niece (free download from Connecting Threads website).  The purse I made is for my Mom.  Now that the small stuff is done, now back to Machine quilting and getting some "big" stuff done :)

This quilt was made by my Mom for my sister-in-law Susan. The beautiful quilting was done by Carolyn Cardoza.  My participation:  the binding :) The picture is of me and Susan at my Nephew's wedding this Friday.

We are back from vacation. We had a great time, even went bowling. Wondering if someone could invent cuter bowling shoes? I'm a lousy bowler, will be glad to get back to quilting! I also won some money-woo hoo!
