A Little Here... A Little There....

Yesterday, I dropped my sewing machine off to be repaired so this morning I was machineless :(  I had a dr. appointment at 9am.  It looks like there is a good chance I will be able to run again :)  More physical therapy :p  ..but running again will be a great gift.  Any hoots, when I got home I started cutting out my Retro Flower quilt.

  I didn't get very far before Dan, the service guy called to say my machine is finished and good to go!  There was a thread jammed in my tension thingy but that was it.  It was in great shape other wise.  I am pretty happy. His price was AWESOME and his speed was SUPER awesome!! ;)  When I got home we ate speed lunch and then headed off to kindergarten for a great time!!!  After all of the kindergarten fun, I got to sew a while on the Dresden plate messenger bag for my 17 year old.  I got most of it finished.  I just need to do the strap and then assemble it.  I have one more bag to make in the morning and then the Easter bags are all finished :) pics so the girls accidentally see their Easter presents :)
Once the troops started arriving after school set them free, I basted the Stars of the Barnyard quilt and started quilting it.  I decided to use an embroidery thread I bought at creative sewing.  I would have liked to quilted more, but I am super tired and my back is not feeling great.  I figured that it would be best to relax and go to bed verses doing some bad quilting ;)


  1. How exciting that you will be up and running soon:) I know how you feel, I've had a tough winter and can't wait to get back on my bike. Great job on the quilt!
