No Internet

Why does that always happen to me on weekends?  I guess I can blame it on the Santa Ana winds.  Sounds good, huh?

I picked up the two Celebration for Girls quilts from the quilter, the bindings sewn on, and will hand stitch them down this week.  Also the binding sewn on Raspberry Truffle, the pink and brown quilt. 

AND I did the Jelly Jam quilt out of the Apple Jack fabric.  Such a quick and easy pattern.  Of course, I managed to flip around a couple of blocks but it still came out cute.  I could have done the whole thing in under two hours if my 440 had cooperated.  I need to take it in to be serviced since I'm resigned to using it instead of the new Bernina.

So a productive weekend.  You'll just have to take my word for it!  Picture will be posted when I'm up and running again!

Yay for a productive quilting weekend! Don't recall what the issue is with your 780, but if I had the money, that's the model I would order. Bought a 550 model less than two years ago, though, so it needs to get a little older before I can justify a new machine. ;-) Hope the problem gets resolved.

Nuts for the Internet!

It sounds like your sewing is picking up speed. I'm so glad you're having fun sewing!

Sorry about the internet but so happy you got so much accomplished! I shopped at Quiltique in Henderson today and bought some Scrumptious by Camille. They won't have the yardage in until later this week that I will need for binding and backing. It is so pretty! We drive home tomorrow.

What is it with your internet provider? You have been struggling with it forever it seems like! But moving ahead on the quilting, yea!
