I mean seriously!!!
It does one stitch….Straight!
All I need.
Really I love it sooo much!!
It has an automatic thread cutter, I love this, but it cuts the thread so short I always have to rethread my needle!
You know my eyes, it takes me forever! I am so frustrated!
Most quilters thread their needle with a new color or new thread.
Not every other time I make a seam!
I even had a friend of mine who owns the same machine try it, Noooo she has no problem. The second she leaves, it comes out!
Any Juki owners out there who know how to lengthen the thread that is cut? Otherwise I am back to leaders and enders!
Whoa Bill, that was quite a tantrum!!!!!!!
I need a huge Hot Fudge Sundae!!!!

My eBay store is now carrying Presencia Perle Finca #8 Threads!!!
I believe these threads are the finest threads in the industry. Made from 2 Ply long stable 100% Egyptian Mercerized Perle Cotton from Spain. All the colors are colorfast so no worries about bleeding. It has an exceptional high luster and is resistant to splitting. Perfect for all your embroidery and cross stitching projects. I have a wide selection of these amazing threads in my eBay store. I also carry shades of red that are the perfect choice for all your redwork.
Take a peek!!

Two beautiful island bracelets.
What did you say?
This post is about Christmas!!
Yes it sure is…
I received my Christmas Cottage quilt back from Millie. This is the first time I did not quilt a quilt by hand. I think Millie of Milie's Quilting did an amazing job. We decided to keep it simple and let the cottages shine through! Just look at her wonderful work.
Even the back is amazing!
Now all that is left is the binding. Hmmm, Elaine…When will you be home!! LOL!!
I just love it!!
What do you think?

What you ask?
I sent a pile of 20 to our bee Mama and will receive 20 different ones in return.
That is not enough for a quilt…….
I know, I know I told you I was going to make blocks with my new dot fabrics; however, I had these piles of scraps calling for me to make more string blocks.
What’s a girl to do?
So, sorry that is what I am doing this weekend. And I better get to work!
Happy Sewing Everyone!

Much to my delight I won a cuppa’ cozie from Madame Samm!!
How did she know I love pink?
Pink, Pink and more pink.
I also joined her Mug Rug Fun. It was the first one I ever made but because it was just for fun and it was for me, there was no pressure involved. I may even make another!
So, here is my Mug Rug and my Cuppa’ Cozie all set up by my sewing machine!
I am delighted to be a sponsor and thrilled to have received this work of art from Madame Samm
Thank you, thank you Madame Samm.
