I got my baby back!!! (Friday Foto Fun #6)

Happy Friday indeed!  I got to pick up my baby from the shop yesterday!! I’m so excited to be able to sew with it again!  So the technician told me that he took the bottom portion apart and didn’t find the needle pieces.  Then he put it back together, retimed the machine and it worked.  Now how do I learn to fix that myself when...

I decided that I’d start on my Fox and Friends quilt for...

Lucky Friday the 13th (Friday Foto Fun #1)

Welcome to the first of many Friday Foto Fun Sharing posts! I am starting this linky party because I feel with my full time job, I don’t finish enough projects to do a Friday Finish sharing party.  But I would still like to celebrate the smaller wins such as working on designs or finishing up a block or two on a longer term project! <div...
