    I'd save that blood test results for future use against the relatives that aren't normal.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    yep! Never know when you may need it to defend yourself. Maybe I should get a blood test. but wait it may not turn out normal.

    I went zig-zagging with my Ferrari today! I hooked up the motor to my Necchi Supernova just to see how fast the machine would go. I forgot how fast the Necchi Supernova can go, and how quiet it sews. After treadling for so long, it was a bit daunting to deal with that speed while sewing. All I was doing was zig-zagging the edges of the material for a pair of pants that I started today. I prefer to treadle.

    Trish I think everyone's busy trying to keep their New Year's resolutions! I am busy trying to finish all my unfinished projects, then after swearing I would not start another quilt until I finish a couple that have been sitting around - I started another Mystery Quilt! But, in my defense, I got two quilts quilted, working on the 3rd one now! So I guess I am not completely breaking my New Year's resolution yet!

    Geeze, Monica I know what you mean going from treadling to electric! I was in a Mystery class Sunday all day with the pedal to the medal going on all 10 machines there! It was crazy! I came home with most of the clues done because I was going with the flow - pedal to the metal using my 301. Now, I am enlarging the quilt top - making extra blocks - using my 319w in treadle - much more relaxing way to sew!

    Tammi, yep I can relate to what your boyfriend did! Men just have to mess with stuff! Nice Wilson! You know, your Wilson was made by White. You can date that machine going to the White site. It looks like your machine is in very good shape. Congratulations on getting it all ready to go! I hope your boyfriend enjoys making his jean's quilt!
