A Finished Top

Yes, yes… I know I haven’t been around much.  It’s been one thing after another.  First I got a strained muscle at the gym.  I won’t tell you how, but if my DH requests the video it may end up on funniest home videos.  Next up was Shadow.  If you haven’t heard the poor guy has a tumor in his right kidney, most likely cancerous.  He’s hanging in there.  Finally, just when I thought things were looking up and I had a week off of work to play with my new toy… hit by the flu bug like a bus.  Today is the first day I’ve felt even reasonably like getting off the sofa.

Anyway, I managed to get my new sewing machine going.  Let’s just say it’s like sitting in front of a space ship.  I had to actually read the manual first and watch the DVD.  It’s way more machine than I’m used to, but I think I love her.  This isn’t her final set up.  I have a drop in table coming with a cut out that will fit her.

We finished this together today.

Yeah! Finished my first quilt top.

I’m hoping to get the second top done soon.

  • I almost emailed you last week to find out how Shadow was doing. 🙁 Very sad.

    We are most likely joining a gym this month, I’m sure wacky injuries can’t be far behind. Glad you are feeling better!

      The new machine looks very nice. I love the floral squares in the sashing, really sets off your top. Nice job!
