Now, isn't this a beauty?
This is my new machine.  Well at least a photo of it. My particular machine is in layaway.  This is the Pfaff Creative Connection 2.0 and it does it all.  Great for sewing with lots of built in stitches.  Large throat area for quilting along with built in walking foot.  No more having to change out the feet every time I want to quilt. It is also an awesome embroidery unit with a large design area. 

I am progressing...slowly...with the quilt top project for our church.  It has been delayed a little by some Dr. appointments, some household projects that have to be a month ago...and honestly, a really serious case of the don't want to do anythings.  I am working through it though.  Have to.

The plan is to by September have gotten through the tutorials for my EQ 7 quilting software and it's companion EQ Stitch embroidery software.  Of course, we have a big vacation planned, my oldest grandson is coming for a visit and our youngest grand child is due to arrive in July. Not like there is anything going to take up my time this summer. LOL

This has been a nice break, but I have to get back to my kitchen chores. Stop in to visit again soon.

Not Enough Time...New Goal

There just doesn't seem to be enough time for me to find any little bit of time to work on the projects I want to lately.  I need to clean my whole house, need to file my mom's last tax return, organize my kitchen, well you know how it is.

Any way, I have a new goal.  Some way some how, I need to make 5 more quilts for the orphan project that our church group is working on.  Not sure why I let myself sign up for these things, but I have and I will honor it.  Wish me luck, five quilt tops by Thursday evening so I use the tables at church to baste them.  Then to get them quilted before the following Thursday morning so I can get them turned in and whole project can be finished.

You see, I have projects for my personal list that I want to work on pretty soon.  Actually my goal is to get myself so organized that I can at least work on quilt related projects three evenings a week, cross stitch project one or two nights a week.  That will give me a couple of nights a week that I can use for cooking demos or a date night or a family night.  WHOA! Family night? What is that?  Yeah exactly.

Thanks for stopping in.  I will post photos when I get them done.
