Sean Says I Have to Blog More

Posted on by in Life

He’s right.  I’ve been pretty bad about it the past couple weeks.

I’m still buried under all my scraps.

I have six finished quilts tops draped over anything I can drape a quilt top on.  I’d hang them up in the closet, but well

I still have buckets of scraps everywhere.

It’s a disaster in here.

I want to rearrange part of the room to make for more space and improve some ergonomics.  I just need to move way too much stuff.  Back and knees aren’t too thrilled with this idea.

I’m in the middle of paper piecing 1200 pieces together.  Fun!

I have a million things to really blog about… I just keep forgetting (or really just running out of time…)

I got a new toy last week but I’m afraid to say anything in fear of jinxing it’s perfectness.

I leave you with a picture of a bitty Maeve and the place I’d rather call home.

    I would love to see what you have been working on but understand how hard it is to get things posted. Those scrap boxes were pretty impressive! I can’t wait to see what you did with them.

    Lovely picture:) I too have been lacking on blogging. ITs hard to find a balance.

    Come on Emily, tell us about your new toy Please. I saw the box in your car read Bernina, which one did you buy? Enquiring quilters need to know. I am positive that sharing your good fortune will not jinx it.

    In the past few months I picked up a Husqvarna 6570, Singer 15-91 and drum roll please…..a Bernina Nova 900. Bernina is pristine, in absolutely perfect running order. The Husqvarna sews fine but there is an annoying ticking sound by the bobbin winder every time the needle bar goes up and down.. tick.. tick. tick…tick.. like a little bomb waiting to explode. The Singer 15-91 is genuine black beauty with a lovely engraved chrome coloured face plate and back side plate. This Singer has the gear driven potted motor. Unfortunately, at 70 years of age her motor needs a makeover. My neighbour has it in his garage he is going to degrease, clean the motor gears and then apply new clean grease. We should be good to go then. According to the reviews I’ve read the Singer 15-91 has a larger harp than most domestic machines, making it ideal for quilting. The feed dogs can be dropped by adjusting a screw underneath.

    Hope you post a blog about your Bernina soon.

    BIQ = buddies in quilting.

    Yessss, Emily- which Bernina did you buy? You cannot possibly jinx a Bernina by telling us which it is- Berninas are un-jinxable. I am just wondering if it is an Activa, an Aurora or an Artista in there- I cannot read the label on your box.
    There are so many great machines to choose from and I am sure you will love whatever you decided to buy- or you would not have purchased it in the first place.
    Dont’ let your- and our- horrible experiences of the Qe4.0 spoil the joy of your new toy. Come on, open up the box…you know you want to!

    Oh, the box is totally open and working on it’s 7th quilt top. 😉 I’ll post about it later in the week…

    Oooh goodie- I am glad you did buy a Bernina and know how irritating it is to have a machine that can’t do what you need yet claims to be able to do so.
    With all those pounds of scraps in buckets you will be able to fly though them in no time with your Nina.
    I am in the process of posting my machine on ebay- inexpensively- have you found a buyer for yours yet or were you able to trade it?
