Look what K made!

Kaye is behind there somewhere. Her holiday quilt has been made and
some presents have been wrapped. All in August. Awesome? Aggravating?
: ) maybe Inspiring?

Don't toss those little scraps!!!!!!!!!!

Terri Bennett, a experienced : ) quilter stopped by Quilt Club
last week to share her mini quilts with us. (approx.5x7 size)
How cute are these?
There is no reason you couldn't complete every family member a
special quilt this year...
just saying...

I'm just saying...

Sewing is cheaper than a psychiatrist !
Today I worked on my sewing room. Nothing fancy but ROOM...I have a cutting table now,
an ironing area, a display wall started, tv, phone and laptop....sewing machine, embroidery machine, serger and I still have a lot to do.

Again I say...

Asking a quilter to mend (hem) is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.
However this time was my 26 year old son and he ask so nice : P.
Job is done along with some unique embroidered luggage tags : ). He leaves
tomorrow morning for a new adventure. And as he says sometimes "Can't tell
you, have to kill you".

new hobby...

sewing machine repair-rrrrrrrrr
yesterday I acquired a cute little green machine. not the cleaning kind : ) that is so not me.
it is a sewing machine. a Singer 285k. needs some work so I thought. I would attempt to work on
it after watching a video on a new blog I found. Brian helped me get started even tho he didn't
know. after taking the bottom off like Brian said to do I was still a bit lost. I decided to email
him for advice but saw my first problem! no belt! after I find a belt I will go to the next step even
tho Brians blog says it is one of the worst Singer machines made. : P my luck. BUT I only gave
$3 for it and it can just look "cute" in my sewing room with the dozen or so in my collection.
(hubby says the belt will cost $20 : P )
oh and here is Brian's blog...on a bad seed

and a picture of the little green Singer 285k
(not to be confused with the 185)

And here is the SECRET!

Waiting for Sewmeow's SURPRISE!

As promised....

Happy to find this old quilt today after passing it up yesterday.
$5! all hand stitched and does have holes but it has been loved and
I wonder about it's "story" : )

127 Yard Sale

Yesterday I met a friend from out of state here helping her mom set up in the 127 yard sale.
The sale runs for abut 400 miles of Hwy 127 each year. We had a good visit along with our daughters
running around looking for a good buy. I saw NEW IN BOX  jelly jars at a great price turned for like 30
seconds and back around to pick them up and some lady (Barbara R) had them clutched in her
arms! She beat me to the buy. The only other thing I saw there was a olllllllllld quilt. I passed on it
but am leaving soon and hope to find it is still there. If I find it I will post a picture tonight. Keep your
fingers crossed.
