I got really tired of losing my seam ripper, so I have 3, and they are all on colorful shoe lace leashes. I highly recommend this for small, easily lost essential items. We have done it with remotes, too. Excellent results.

here are the blocks I've completed the last few days. It was nice having the machine working while I was arranging stuff to make room for the new machine.

I had to move the embroidery machine to the middle spot. I use to have it with the Juki 2010 to the front, but I had to slide the Juki forward to remove the embroidery arm. Now that I've swapped out the 2010 for a Juki 8700, moving the Juki out of the way isn't going to happen! So it's on the end now.

Haven't sewn on it much other than the test sewing at the dealer's shop. I bought it from the same place as my embroidery machine, serger, HQ long arm, sashiko machine and my Scan N Cut. They are my favorite toy store!

Love the blocks you have made. They keep getting prettier. It's nice to see all the machines set up and ready to go when you want. That is my goal too.

here is an update on the blocks completed the last week. I'm up to 12 so 8 more to go. After I get these done, I want to do a set using my selection of fabrics and trims I'm using on my "antique wedding" crazy quilt.

Those are so cute. I need to check out the Molly Mine designs.

Since 2 of my nieces said I need to rest to recover faster from my sinus infection, I have time to surf the web. . I am heading to the sewing machine soon, however.

Very creative. I love how the solids show off the stitches (and keep it from being too busy).

Your blocks are beautiful. Almost makes me want to get out the embroidery unit for my Janome. Almost.
