Anybody want a skunk in your hen house? You know they love eggs.

Brooke, yes I used EQ6 to draw the coops. Fox-- the boom box was a genius addition! Oppossums raid chicken coops, too. And snakes.

I'm working on some little skunk blocks -- 3.5" and some little eggs, also 3.5 inches. I'm not going to do a snake, even though they do like eggs too. I just hate snakes. I think I'm running out of time, but I'll consider an opossum, weasel, coon -- probably will only have time to finish these 2 sets though.

Well, I got a new bobbin case in and wouldn't you know it.... I got a new whole in the FIRST block!!! UUUUURRRRGGGGG!!!!! I have contacted brother and am trying to get it fixed, but the authorized dealer doesnt want to fix it because I bought it at walmart and not from her!! I can't believe that this is happening.... I want to make some more. My mom was looking into getting a machine, so she said that she will get one and see if it is just my machine thats a lemon or something. If hers does the same thing, then we will just bring hers back and have to get a different brand next time. I hope I can get my last ones done before the end of the month because I wanted to send them a little early. I just want to cry now...

Brooke, you might want to contact Brother about their "authorized dealer" and the lack of help therein. They might have suggestions or can provide the dealer with more motivation to help you. Maybe they need to send you a replacement machine. I hope it works out for you. Maybe you could get a nice used/older machine off craigslist or something. Having a poor functioning machine is very frustrating. Problems can occur with some machines from top companies to. The first Bernina I bought skipped stitches at high speed. I showed the lady at the shop I bought it from and they swapped it out immediately. I am still using the second machine and probably always will. I bought the base/manual model and its great. But, that was out first year of marriage and DH had completely spaced my birthday, soooo.....anyway, I've never gotten such a big gift since (unless you count the chop saw and stand I got for Christmas after 10.5 years of marriage)! LOL

EQ6 is this just a program that goes in your computer? I have vista and was wondering. Thanks

Okay, here are some skunks. And then eggs. But I want to know -- use the yolks or not, or maybe send them loose so the recipient can choose? Each square is 3.5".

eggs - yolk or no yolk?
