I told you about my Christmas Ribbons quilt a while back. It's now all pieced and basted. I even got a little bit of quilting in last night!
|Christmas Ribbons on my floor at about midnight on Friday - completed top!|
Have you ever had the needle come out while you are sewing? It doesn't break, the needle holder-inner thing isn't loose, the needle just rips right out of the machine and the thread stays intact and you have to loosen the needle thingy and put it back in? That keeps happening while I'm quilting this thing! Anyone have any ideas? I think I read once that there's a front and back to batting and that can cause problems. Could that be my problem? Help is appreciated :)
I've also been doing a little retail therapy (we haven't seen the sun in Pittsburgh since before the hurricane - the hurricane was just annoying for us, no major damage, but it's been rainy or at least cloudy ever since... spending money on fabric is my way of adding sunshine to my life? maybe?) and I just ordered a FQ bundle of Bella and also 50 fat eighths from Lizzy House. The fat eights won't ship until December 1... it's going to be tough to wait it out! The Bella FQs are in the mail today! Now to figure out how to use them...
UPDATE: Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced! Be sure to take a look at all the other great WIPs this week! Oh and I started cutting into my stash of Flurry last night for a Swoon quilt!
