Oops -- There Goes One of My Goals!

Did you notice something missing from the picture above? 

Yep, the long arm sewing machine is off the frame and the electronics for the computerized sewing is separated from the machine. 

So, my goal of finishing the Christmas Trip Around the World quilt won't be done this month. Sigh!  A new piece (like the one on the right up above) is on its way to us.  Thank goodness Pat can handle this.  (Hey, we've taken the machine and frame apart quite a few times since we got it.) Next week it will come in and we'll get it set up and going.  Then my TAW will get quilted! 

To take my mind off of this, I'm heading out to retreat tomorrow! I've packed 2 baby quilts, and a bunch of little projects.  I'm hoping I'll get those 2 baby quilts to tops and the small projects totally finished.  Then I've added a couple of quilt blocks I want to get made. There are several demos offered which will also be made.  

I'm linking up with Mid Week Makers and Needle and Thread Thursday.  Check out what folks are working on across the Internet. 

I'll be leaving around 9 am on Thursday heading out to the retreat in Harrisonburg, Va.  I hope everyone has a great weekend quilting.  I know I'll be having lots of fun. 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. Hope everything works out ok for your baby!

  2. Eek! Hope it gets back to working order soon! Enjoy your retreat.

  3. Your machine is going to the spa? What happened? At least you know she will come home purring like a kitten and ready to get back to work.

  4. Have fun at the retreat! I always overestimate what I can accomplish at them! Glad you can get your machine fixed by your own personal professional lol :-)

  5. Safe travel and have a great time at the retreat.

  6. I'm glad Pat can handle this repair. I know I'm always grateful when Sean (a.k.a. Project Boy) fixes my machine. I hope you have a fun and relaxing retreat!

  7. Oh, you are going to have such a great time! I hope you get everything done that you brought along and no biggie if you don't!


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
