    The female Judge said, sarcastically, "I'd certainly like to
    hear those extenuating circumstances." I did too so, I listened as the
    lady told her story.

  3. Bad Machine.. Bad

    by , 02-07-2012 at 05:46 PM
    Well, as most know the CW is what my concentration has been on. A friend of mine worked on my machine for me over the weekend and all was well for a couple of days. I am back to the same disagreement with it so put it back up. I don't know when I'm going to realize that I am not meant to operate machinery, lol. I did manage to make it through putting 16 (4.5" squares) together before it got mad at me again. Therefore, back to all by hand once again. I am ok with this, I just think I ...

  6. Another productive day!

    by , 02-07-2012 at 03:47 PM (LeslieFrost -- life in the woods of NW Wisconsin)
    Finished my 'floating lanterns' mini top last night. It was sort of a bear to square up. Had to add borders to two sides to get the right size, but it worked, and the black fabric hides the seam lines. Then, I added a yellow flange and put the black binding on the front. Now, I just need to sew the binding from the back and add a label, and my Feb. DQ is ready early.

    Now, I'm on to my Feb. quilt for AAQI. I'm trying to use an old design called 'Exquisite'. I saw it in one of Gwen

  7. Backing material is purchased. On to the next step.

    by , 02-07-2012 at 02:59 PM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I went to JoAnn's after work tonight and purchased some dark blue material that I will use for the back and binding of the family reunion quilt. I have to wash it, then I want to piece in a few squares leftover from the front of the quilt. Then I will sandwich and quilt. I should get the quilting started this weekend. I hope to be done with the quilt by the end of the month.

    Yeah, everything is working out so well. I just have to take my time and finish the rest without rushing. ...

  10. pegusus

    by , 02-07-2012 at 03:52 AM
    I have a few quilts that I am making for the grandchildren. This one I finished on Christmas day and it took me about 3 months to do. I hand embroidered the pegusus with yarn as to achieve the detail and colors that I wanted. I love to draw and wanted to do something different with my art. This is what I ended up with...thanks for letting me share...
