Three crazies...

Everything is a bit catawampus at the moment...Blogger has changed...my sewing machine is eating thread...my camera losing photos...urhgggggg.

So I only had one more border to put on my Charleston basket flimsey when wouldn't you know it my machine stared protesting.  Maybe it thinks I've worked it too hard the past couple of weeks. So after my fiddling with it and only making it worse I decided my featherweight is on strike.  Tomorrow I'll bring it to the repair guy...if I get it there early I may even get it back on Saturday.  Until then I need to keep it hidden from Dobby...

I did get some friendship blocks finished just before the slowdown...I'm trying to finish a lot of last minute things before leaving for Paducah.

This week I got together with a couple of my quilting friends.  Julie had some great show and tell...
This blue and white applique top...

And this "mock applique"...isn't if fun to see one quilter do two such different projects!

Julies' quilts are beautiful. You lattice quilt is looking great, hope your machine is fixed soon. I also hope your camera problems are solved before your trip to Paducah.

Doesn't it drive you crazy to be so near a finish and then have it taken out of your control?
Julie's tops are beautiful!
Hope you get your machine going very soon!

Julie's quilts are wonderful thanks for sharing

Machine not working? That's the worst! It's as bad as having both arms in a cast! I hope the repair man is good and gets it fixed asap.

Yes, Blogg changes were not welcome by me either but I guess in time will get used to it!

Glad Dobby is home. Yuck, Blogger has changed again. Your friend's quilts are wonderful.

I'm always surprised to hear that "real" quilters use Featherweights. Guess I did something right when I got mine. It likes to eat thread sometimes, too. Must find someone to service it! Can't wait to see the whole Basketweave top, with or without Dobby!
