Boo Hoo.....

My " brand new" quilting machine is broken!!! There is a computer malfunction and I am waiting on parts to arrive.
In the meantime, I have kept myself busy. I've put together all the blocks from the Guild. This quilt will be raffled at our local quilt show for charity. I have also started on a new quilt.

Guild raffle quilt

Lots of 4 patches

I hope to be back in action by the end of the week. The work is piling up.

She's Here...

My new Gammill "Milly" has arrived. I am so excited!! She is quite different to my old quilting machine.
I've been quilting up a storm. At the moment I'm still only doing edge to edge but it wont be long and my freehand quilting (semi-custom) will be up and running.
Milly ready to start her first quilt...

The first quilt done...

It Looks LIke.....

Looks like it's going to be a good weekend.
My old qulting machine has sold and the new one arrives tomorrow (Sun). Squeal!!
It's good to be me right now.
I have contacted some magazines to advertise in and it's not as expensive as I expected. So that will be a go. Hopefully in the next two months my little ad will be out there for the world to see. Yay..

I have done some quilting for Ally recently, her projects are going into magazines along with my details as the quilter. So it's all go around here at the moment.

The Central Coast Modern Quilt Guild is going full steam ahead. We have organised some workshops and a couple of bus trips. It's always fun when we get together.

Looks like it's going to be a good year.

Still Waiting...

"Oh No", was what I said when Kaye the Gammill dealer rang to tell me that she had made a mistake and my new Gammill Vision was not yet in the country. I have already dismantled my other machine so I can't quilt at the moment. Oh well, it's not like I have nothing to do. I have been working on a few new projects. That should keep me out of trouble.

Lots of whirlygig blocks to put together...

Some Soul Blossoms to cut into...

and Innocent Crush

It's very quiet with the boys back at school. It's nice to be alone to do the things I love to do.
Hope you have time to do some stitching or something else you love to do.
