Getting Serious, or not

I starting taking apart the machine this morning. The sewing machine is skipping stitches again. I was going to have a sewing machine shipped out to me but it seems there is no Greyhound bus station in the little Wisconsin burg to drop the shipment off at. (Is that a dangling participle? Something is dangling...oops, back on track...) I did take a look at the machinery and all looks well. I will need another machine for the actual quilting, the stuff that shows (I'm not a handstitch quilter). I have one more person to go to nearby to borrow from. I'm waiting until I get to that point of quilting before I borrow. This machine will get all the piecing done, the top of the quilt and the back of the quilt can all be done with this machine. I put it all back together this morning and got one more block put together. Every bit helps.

Yesterday I pulled together several block AND watched the football game. No need to deny myself the best of entertainment, especially with friends. I've had a good week in general. I guess I just feel better when I have a project, an active interest. It seems when I'm not working on this quilt my mind falls into rollercoaster mode. I find myself laughing out loud at the innuendo my brain comes up with. I might be crazy, but at least I find myself entertaining.


  1. You should teach me how to sew. I never learned how.

  2. I only sew straight lines. I can't do shoulders or or anything with curves. That's why quilting works. I work with my strengths.

    Did anyone catch the screwdriver in the photo? I've got to find my real one...that certainly got me started this morning.

  3. I hope you fix the machine. I haven't seen the first football game this season. I have been watching soccer which has been glorious!!!

  4. I have a whole set of those screwdrivers if I need one. If my real ones go missing...
