  1. My first attempt at a Blog

    by , 02-10-2014 at 08:25 AM
    Greetings!

    I have been thinking I need some way to track my activity (i.e. keep me motivated, and keep me from doing NOTHING all day!). I had posted an update or three on FaceBook, but I decided I don't want that may potential critics. =P

    So..... where do I start? How about this past weekend? I discovered a wonderful local quilt shop, and joined their BOM group. This is the first "official" BOM I will have done, and I am rather (ridiculously!) excited. ...

  7. First two lessons done

    by , 02-09-2014 at 03:24 AM
    The first two practical lessons from Quilter's Academy went pretty fast. First up was class 130, lesson five - making the center of Carrie's sampler quilt. I'm actually making two, one in red and one in green. The plan is to make a reversible quilt, green on one side and red on the other. It turned out pretty well for a first-ever project on the sewing machine.

This quilt makes me smile

  9. Sewing Machine needles breaking!

    by , 02-08-2014 at 12:13 PM
    My mom was cleaning out her sewing room and gave me her Handi Quiliter and Juki TL-98E sewing machine. I got my quilt all loaded, and have quilted about 1/4 of it when the needle broke. I proceeded to put in a new needle and 5 needles later, I cant for the life of me figure out why all of a sudden the needle keeps breaking.
