Last weekend went by so fast. I feel like I woke up this morning and it should have been Friday still. Saturday I worked at the quilt shop. We were super busy, which is such a good thing! I just love that job!! I was pretty tired when I got home though. Plus, I ended up with a migraine that I still have. I seem to be getting them more and more lately. I am making an appointment at my doctor’s office. Over the counter meds are not providing much relief. Scott thinks I need to have my eyes checked. That may be the problem. Any of you migraine sufferers out there know how debilitating they can be! Needless to say I was not up for loading a new muslin practice quilt on my machine Saturday night. I did, however get my first practice quilt unloaded.
Looks like Sarge may finally get a quilt of his own!
My A-1 and I are still getting to know one another. Due to having a migraine, practicing wasn’t really an option Saturday night, I decided to become better acquainted with this part of the A-1…
Does anyone know what this little device is??? It looks like it came straight out of Thomas Edison’s invention test room. LOL! This is the bobbin winder for the A-1. I sat Saturday night winding bobbins. It’s was a little tricky at first, but then they were winding up perfectly. I guess you can never have enough bobbins ready for quilting!
Saturday I also received a little package in the mail. I won a giveaway over on Sew Cindy. It was the cutest little giveaway prize!!
It’s a Moda Bake Shop kit with two mini honey buns and the recipe to make two cute little bags. Elaina and Alyssa thought it was a prize for them. They thought the bags were perfect for them! Looks like I know two little girls that will be getting new bags soon. Cindy has been a great new friend in blogland! I love her blog and getting to know her. Cindy has 3 beautiful Weimaraners!! That right there tells me what an amazing and patient person she is!! Thanks so much, Cindy!
Sunday we spent the day with some friends at their house. When we got home Sunday night, I really wanted to get some practice time in. With a migraine still with me, I did finally get a new practice piece of muslin on the machine. It took me 2 HOURS!! I know it’ll be little faster next time. My A-1 does have a bit of a hiccup that needs to be fixed though. When Jamie was here last week, we noticed the stitches weren’t always even. Jamie fixed it temporarily, but it started doing it again Sunday night. A-1 is sending a replacement piece. I spoke with Jamie this morning and he says to continue to practice, but my stitches just won’t look even until I replace the part. I’m just sooooo relieved it’s an easy fix. I’m a total worry wart, so I thought about it all night! Now I’m off to practice worry free!
