Who gets on a plane without headphones these days? Apparently two of us. Me and the guy across the aisle from me. He’s loudly playing a movie on his phone, and several other people want to bash him. This could get ugly! Good thing we all have phones to document it when the whole thing… Continue reading Training Class
When I decided to purchase my longarm, I decided at the last minute to go ahead and get the robotics. They were offering it at a great price, and I thought it might come in handy for some things, but my goal has always been to learn to do entirely handguided custom work, and hopefully… Continue reading Regarding the Imagined “Danger” of Robotics
I am now the proud owner of a brand new Juki QVP2200 longarm quilting machine on a 12 foot frame. Also Quilt Motion Software. Why, yes. That is my garage. Who wouldn’t choose scraping ice and snow off their car in favor of a longarm quilting machine? Pay no attention to my setup, there. The… Continue reading SHE’S HERE! MY LONGARM!
The world is in such a lousy condition lately, and I feel as though I’m fiddling while Rome burns, to handily mix some metaphors for you. My longarm should be here sometime during the first week of October. For those of you not obsessed with quarter-end reports about environment, health, and safety to the board… Continue reading 🎶 It’s the End of the World as we know it…🎶
We put a sign on the ping pong table that said FREE to a GOOD HOME and it’s gone! It worked! I’m one step closer to buying a longarm.
Look what’s coming to my house on Friday! Ok, a new dishwasher may not be the most exciting thing ever, but the old one is pushing 25 years old and is on its last legs. My house is also in desperate need of new paint, but we’ll see if that happens this summer. Does anyone… Continue reading New Things Being Purchased (or does anyone want a ping pong table?)
I've been nearby all along, but it's been a really intensely weird summer on so many levels. Mostly, I've been working my backside off in the office as well as freaking out about it. Business relationships can be quite tricky, and the politics are often difficult to navigate. I used to like my boss, before… Continue reading Look! I’m here once again!
So what happened? Where did I go? Nowhere. No excuses, really. I’ve been sewing away on my beautiful Long Time Gone and Patchwork Quiltalong projects. I was going to start a sewalong for Sarah J.’s gorgeous Supernova but that idea didn’t get much traction, so I figured I’d just start working on it and make you all… Continue reading Insert clever post title here
(yes, the title is a reference to a great song, maybe I should make it a trend in post titles, forcing you to endure my taste in music because you know you’ll probably click that link. Do it! You won’t be sorry. I think the lyrics are the best part of this song. “Sulky girl,… Continue reading Sulky Girl
I keep losing posts, so if 22 of these fall out of the ether in various forms tonight or tomorrow, just go with it and pretend I’m not as crazy as I look, ok? I had so many plans the last few weeks that have been complicated, interfered with, postponed, or just plain fouled up!… Continue reading The best laid plans of mice and men..
