Here are some pictures! We even had the ladies celebrating the Royal Wedding with their hats on Saturday as we watched the wedding before class began! These are just some of the projects they finished!
First off (i think i do this too often) is I have been MIA blogging. not sure why.
Second I am going to give you a life lesson, plug a product that every Handi Quilter owner needs and show you an ugly picture.
Are you still reading? lol
Life Lesson. When you are a single female and I do not care your size DO NOT LIFT THE 10 FOOT POLE ON THE HANDIQUILTER BY YOURSELF!
Life lesson. I have done this twice. 1st time i fell on my a$$ and bruised my leg and my you know what. This was in December when I first moved the Avante to my apartment.
Flash Forward to last week. I needed to float the item i was putting on the machines. Took the bar off. no problem! Went to put it back on well you can see what happened. I don't think my phone does the colors of my foot justice. And it spread to most of the top of the foot by the next day. What you see was instantaniously bruising.
So if you all have a Handi Quilter you need a pole cradle. They are like $20 bucks I think but it will keep you from breaking and brusing yourself. Now if you have a second person who lives with you or a mighty male being use them! DON'T DO IT BY YOURSELF! Do you get the life lesson.
This is the product and what it looks like on your frame!
Thank you for listening to my story and product plug!
as always..............remember the one with the most stash wins!
Ummmm I have nothing to show you that's mine. (sigh)
So I'm going to instead showcase a younger sewer's success story.
This is Jordyn's project for school. Her project to decorate a quilt block for her fibers lesson. She had to use things that represent her. With the help of her Awesome Dad and my Awesome Sales Associates Cynthia and Kathy this is her block! I did white out her last name since she's a minor so please don't let that distract you from the awesomeness of the block!
Keep up the great work Jordyn!
encourage the young ones to sew so you can buy more stash and win! Jenn
I have been working really hard on my ripple afghan. I had two pictures. The second is a blur of Onyx the Cat. He was checking it out when i took the picture. Sorry his face is not clear........lol
I also started to work on the borders to the Hoop Sisters BOM.
If you ever wanted to see what a machine over 10 years looks like that has not been cleaned? Here is a picture of my HQ 16. I finally let Cynthia clean it! Overall I thought it would be way worse than that!
I think that's all I have for you. My week will be spent getting ready for retreat!
I have been knitting away on my ripple afghan. I want to make more but haven't decided to buy the yarn or what color. Do I really need to do another? Do I really want the other pattern? Ok that one is a yes.........lol
Decisions Decisions Decisions!
Started to cut the fabrics for the borders from the Hoop Sisters BOM! stay tuned it's on my list to start advertising the classes! Worse it will come out in the April 15th newsletter. If I get it done sooner I will send it out!
I don't have any pics for you of quilting or yarn but here's a cute pic of my quilting buddy. Next week I will get you pics of the afghan.
We are also revving up for our retreat! Not only do I have to figure out what we are taking for the store but what am I going to work on! too many ufo's in my piles!
Think 60's as the rest of the snow from last week melts! Please Please Spring be here!
