OMG!!  I was almost finished with my crib quilt, and what do you think?  My machine just seizes up.  Sooooo Frustrating, especially since it happens more often than not.  When it works, it's awesome, but, that's the problem, it spends more time in the shop than it does working.  The Shower is Saturday, and I don't know if I will get it back in time to finish it.  UUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!  I think Brother should send me a brand new machine.  what do y'all think.  I'm calling them tomorrow and screaming at them, AGAIN!!!  After spending tons of money for this machine, you would think it would work.  It's a Brother Innov-is 4000D.  Anybody else having issues with theirs.

This is the First Row with the Sash

Here is the second and 1st Rows together

Here are all the squares complete with sash

I have already sandwiched the fabric and the batting and stitched around the squares.  All that is left is the binding and then the Stippling

New black and white Crib Quilt Project

My neighbor is having her second child and I have decided to make something very special for her new baby.  It is a quilt featuring  "Children of the Inner Light" embroideries.  I just love these little people.  They are right there on the top of my favorites list.  Anyway, I love this mag called "Quilting and Embroidery" again at the top of my favorites list, unfortunately, it is very hard to find and I am not sure if it will even be in publication any more, what a shame. Anyway, there was a red and white quilt with some redwork designs on it and that is  the quilt design I chose to try and do except that I am making it black and white and the different embroideries.  These are photos of the quilt on the design wall.  I got it all cut out and now I just have to sew it all together.  I'll keep you updated as it comes along.

  Oh, Yeah, I love my design wqll.  Very simple, you just need a large wall to put it on.  I used felt and tacked it in several places on the wall.  The fabric sticks to it very well, but if you have a fan or something stirring the air, you might want to spray it with a light coat of quilting adhesive or applique adhesive.  This has been great for me to arrange my pieces.  I'm relatively new to this quilting thing, so I am still learning a lot of tips and tricks.

Another Bad Vet Trip

This is my li'l baby Trinity.  She is the only survivor of a litter of puppies from a really tiny mother.  She is now 2 years old.  I took her to the vet for her shots, and, again, she came back with issues.She came back all swelled up on both sides. I guess it was really bother her because She started licking these areas until they became scabby (yes even though she had some diphenhidramine) Anyway, I called my sister because she had made these cute little sweaters for her dog when she was a puppy and I thought that it would be perfect to prevent her from further aggravating these areas.  Anyway, I used a crocheted sock of mine and cut open the toe and cut two holes for her legs and it works perfectly, sooo much better than one of those ridiculous collars.  How cute is She!!!  So Far, So Good, She can't get to the areas.
