Quilting Buddy

Here we are, heading into the last week of April, and I haven’t blogged at all yet this month!  What can I say, it’s been a busy month with various family events and non-quilting tasks.  Most of my limited quilting time was taken up making things I can’t share yet. Here’s all I can show you of that sewing:


I thought I would get some things done that I could share, but my sewing machine started misbehaving again, sewing very fast all by itself after I released the foot pedal.  The machine spent time at the shop, where of course it behaved quite beautifully, making it difficult for the technician to pinpoint the problem and confirm that it was fixed.  I had taken a video when it misbehaved at home so at least they could see what was happening. Anyway, no sewing happened while the machine was at the shop, and none again after it came home and misbehaved again.  When I went back to the shop again I was loaned a machine to use while they overhaul my machine’s insides, but now I’m catching up on the secret sewing that didn’t get done so there are still no new projects to share here.

I can share progress on an old project though.  Hand quilting stalled for a while, but I have made progress again in the last two weeks.  Here’s the progress chart for my son’s quilt.


I have a buddy cheering me on now, so maybe I’ll get faster.


I’m not so sure about Rosie’s other favourite spot though. Maybe she’s part cat. The paw on my back was rather distracting so I’m discouraging this particular habit!


I’m off for a bit of quiet sewing on this quilt now.  I missed my original goal of finishing by mid-April. How about June?
