For all of you quilt lovers out there, check out this great Wall Street Journal article featuring truck drivers who quilt in their spare time. It’s a great testament to the soothing, creative head-spinning nature of our hobby!
Thanks to my dad for sending it to me this morning.
FYI, my machine is still in for service. It’s actually ready but I haven’t made the 30 minute trip to pick it up yet. Hopefully tomorrow.
I have a Viking Sapphire 870 sewing machine. I’ve had it for a year and it’s time for a service. Not to mention that it’s breaking needles and skipping stitches while I’m trying to free-motion quilt. Frustrating! So being without my sewing machine is a complete drag. I feel like I’m in time-out.
For those of you who also have a Sapphire machine, check out the Yahoo Group for Sapphire users. I’ve gotten wonderful advice and ideas from that group!
Just to keep you entertained on this fair Tuesday, here is a pic:
This is my mom with her grandkids. It was taken last summer at the beach and is one of my favorite pictures. I wanted to add it to the blog to give it a permanent home.
Also, in case you haven’t heard me brag about my sister enough, her NEW BOOK The Dead-Tossed Waves hits the bookstores today!!!
Carrie’s first book hit the NY Times bestseller list (March 14th edition) and we are SO PROUD of her!!!
